HELLAS: Worlds of Sun and Stone 2nd Edition
by Luke W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/06/2014 17:10:36
Hellas is a wonderful mash up of Greek mythic fantasy and space opera. This is not a far future version of mythic Greece. It is instead a translation of Greek mythic fantasy into a technological advanced interstellar setting.

The book is a weighty tome and complete. There is a detailed setting chapter, extensive bestiary and equipment chapters, full treatment of the Gods and interesting ideas regarding space travel, "hyperspace" etc. PCs are created using a life path system similar to that in Pendragon, which results in storied and powerful heroes right out of the box, pursuing their destiny whilst striving to avoid their fate.

The system uses a single d20 and, though of medium complexity, is fast and easy to use in play. There is also consideration given to supporting the GM to make their job easier.

If you love Greek myths but want a fresh take on them or also love space opera as well, then this RPG for you.

ATLANTIS: Theragraphica
by Luke W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/03/2014 19:21:42
Theragraphica is the monster book for Atlantis: The Second Age. It is not only a book of monsters though. It is a book of myths, legends, and horror stories from around the world; of things that will make you afraid of the dark (and the light to be honest) and that will test your sanity.

As the final book in the Atlantean trilogy, Theragraphica shows just how much Khepera has done to forge its own RPG to achieve an “all you will ever need” sword and sorcery RPG. Theragraphica contains so much detail and inspiration that it feels like it likely never be exhausted, much like Geographica in respect to the setting. It also provides a comprehensive toolkit for the GM in creating threats and monster for his or her PCs to face.

ATLANTIS: The Second Age World Map
by Luke W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/01/2014 20:40:46
This free product contains a large beautifully painted world map, as well as a PDF containing a gazetteer of the world and 8 further detailed maps. The map is gorgeous and evokes the feeling of the setting by its very appearance.

ATLANTIS: The Second Age Premium World Map
by Luke W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/01/2014 17:34:01
This contains all the PDFs in "ATLANTIS: The Second Age World Map" as well as 14 layered PDF maps, each showing a continent in the Atlantis world in more detail.

The maps are all as beautiful as the world map and done by the same cartographer/artist. The layers include: key and frame, continent names, nation names, city names, city icons, sea names, borders, roads, grid, outline and even the map itself. This presents you with a huge variety so you can tailor the maps to exactly what you want, from a detailed map for game reference to an in-game handout.

There are a few technical issues with the maps. I found that they wouldn't open with Adobe Acrobat X. They work fine on Foxit Reader. Also, the Eria map is missing. Hopefully, Khepera add this soon.

ATLANTIS: Atman Sounds of the Soul
by Luke W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/01/2014 16:56:36
Atman Sounds of the Soul is a soundtrack for Atlantis with a playtime of just over 30 minutes. The quality is higher than expected for music created specifically for a tabletop RPG, and a number of the songs stand up against even big movie scores. The style is appropriate for Atlantis drawing on instruments that invoke the antediluvian age. I currently have this in a playlist with soundtracks from 13th Warrior, Spartacus, Rome, 13 Assassins, Conan the Barbarian and Austin Wintory's Journey, and it fits well. All in all, I applaud Khepera for attempting to provide Atlantis support beyond the usual fare.

ATLANTIS: Action Deck
by Luke W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/05/2014 21:24:16
Another optional yet deluxe play aid, the Action Deck allows for a new layer of mechanical play to add more variety in play and also provide inspiration for genre appropriate actions and plot developments. The cards are less cluttered than their Hellas equivalents making them more manageable.

Though usable in any Atlantis game, these cards will really spice up demo and con play.

ATLANTIS: Hero's Guide
by Luke W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/05/2014 21:19:10
This is a completely optional yet deluxe play aid. It gives all the information a player needs for PC creation except for life paths, which should be done as a group exercise in any case.

There is also some additional mechanics such as Talents, Professions and Magic Items. It's also a great NPC 'on the fly' resource for a GM.

ATLANTIS: the Second Age
by Luke W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/11/2014 18:08:39
Atlantis: The Second Age is the be all and end of all of Sword and Sorcery RPGs.

It has a great balance between setting and rules, both being flavoursome and detailed, whilst not being overbearing or cumbersome. The presentation is absolutely superb portraying the vibe of the RPG with clarity and focus.

PCs created with the system through the life path system feel a part of the setting with their own stories filled with hooks for the GM to write compelling stories for with ease. The magic and religion is flexible yet intriguing; powerful yet dangerous.

ATLANTIS: Geographica
by Luke W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/11/2014 18:01:49
This is an amazing supplement to the Atlantis: The Second Age rulebook. It feels like a full colour double sized World of Greyhawk for AD&D or Scavenger Sons for Exalted. It is filled with inspiration and plot hooks whilst preserving open spaces to be filled during play.

Between having a vague long term plot idea as GM, the PCs created by my players via the life paths and the relevant sections in Gegraphica, creating sessions of adventures is an absolutely breeze.

This book also contains the Atlantis chapter from the rulebook, so the setting presentation is complete and can be used with another rules system if preferred.

ATLANTIS: the Second Age
by Darren K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/10/2014 14:04:43
I had encountered this setting before- or so I thought- in the form of the previous editions. I'd given them a look, intrigued by the ideas behind the setting, but been less than impressed. It was nothing more than a mass of D&D cliches that utterly the great potential of the setting.

Khepera have changed all that. Giving both the rules mechanics and the background a major overhaul, they've left both recognisable compared to earlier editions, but made it a vastly superior game. The setting is now the pulp fantasy Swords & Sorcery epic that I'd always wanted from this world, and the rules now support this style of play at every level.

Character creation is based around making heroes from the start, not lowly neophytes who might become heroes one day. The lifepath system creates a very inspiring background for each player character, and the dramatic rules make combat and other adventurous pursuits feel suitably cinematic. Not only does the game have a Drama Point mechanic, but in order to refresh their Drama Points PCs have to engage in various activities, from making offerings to the gods to wenching and carousing in taverns. Magic is always dark and dangerous in some way, with practioners becoming more bizarre and otherworldly as their power grows.

The game also manages to improve on the Glory system seen in Pendragon, adding extra elements to make the characters feel like heroes of legend. In addition to the basic Renown score for glorious deeds, characters achieve Great Works (rescue the princess, avenge your brother, overthrow the tyrant) and Fate Points (the dark fate awaiting the hero). Many heroes of legend come to tragic ends, and the Fate Points show how close this is coming- players must keep their Glorious Deeds tally higher to escape this ignoble fate.

Finally, the action is driven by the PCs. Players decide on the goals, both their great destiny (Become King of Atlantis and the like are possible) and the short term ones (find the treasure of the lost city, drive the pirate queen from the seas). The GM then arranges the stories around these. There are many games with similar themes, but these are rules-lite indie rules, wheras Atlantis: The Second Age is most certainly a full RPG with stats, weapons lists and the like. Having some of the good points from drama-oriented indie games transplanted into a more traditional RPG ruleset is a very good combination for me.

This game is well worth a look. As far as I'm concerned, the only flaws are the lack of a printer-friendly version and the price tag given that a print version should be out soon. Have a look, and you won't be disappointed!

High-quality scan, enough information to give you a starting-point, and the art is excellent. Can be used in any genre and with any system. Much better than I expected for a free product.

Really beautiful work. Neat concept for a world based on fantasy Earth in a mythical age. The write-up that describes each of these lands is a great source of adventure seeds!

Not only do you get some nice maps, but also get small descriptions of the people who live in the different areas. Definitely a good start for a new GM.

I am really enjoying this game. Your character's start out more competent than is usual for a RPG, but the game is still balanced and a challenge for players. I have mainly used the beta version which does have some grammar errors, but a very fun product.
