Odyssey of the Dragonlords is a new Dungeons and Dragons campaign book revolving around Greek mythology. The book was successfully published through Kickstarter last year and since then has released digitally, but this is the first time it’s been available physically.
The Dragonlords were the champions who overthrew the Titans 500 years ago and forged the Oath of Peace. But the power of the Oath has waned, and now the Titans seek vengeance.”
You are one of the heroes called by prophecy to end the conflict once and for all. Poets will sing of your deeds for centuries to come… if you survive.”
The Dungeons and Dragons 5E guide was written by James Ohlen, the lead designer of several popular video games series including Baldur’s Gate, Dragon Age: Origins, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
Modiphius published the 460-page hardback adventure book and released it on January 31, 2020. The guide features characters, monsters, and items inspired by Greek mythology. So fans of the Odyssey and The Iliad will surely find plenty of similarities to Homer’s pieces.
An Epic Campaign. Join with other prophesied heroes to undertake an epic quest to save the world of Thylea, sail the islands of the Forgotten Sea, and battle the Titans! The adventure will take a party of heroes from 1st to 15th level (or higher).”
The book also includes full-colored maps and illustrations to help guide you during the journey. You’ll also be able to play as new races and classes you can use in this or any other fifth edition campaign. While many are featured as creatures in other Dungeons and Dragons books, players can choose from 12 new classes and six races.
The World of Thylea. Includes an overview of the history, factions, kingdoms, and laws of the forgotten continent. Learn about the gods, the titans, and the legendary Dragonlords.”
If you want to get a feel for Odyssey of the Dragonlords, Ohlen released a digital copy of the Player’s Guide for free on Dungeon Master’s Guild. A copy of the full version of the campaign guidebook will also come with a downloadable PDF version so you can take it with you anywhere.
