Reviews - What do customers think about Mythic Vistas: The Trojan War (Mythic Vistas)?
All the glory, all the tragedy Dec 12, 2004
The D20 sourcebook, Trojan War brings to the D&D gaming all the myths, heroics and tragedies of Bronze Age Greece. A brief summary of the contents: - An overview and timeline of the legendary Trojan war including notes and options for running a Trojan War campaign. - New character classes, spells, artifacts, and creatures drawn from the Greek Age of Mythology - Game stats for all the personalities of the Trojan War (Achilles, Hector, Paris, the gang is all here..)
Overall, the book is excellent - well-researched and packed cover-to-cover with details. Especially well done is the concise summary of the Trojan War from the events preceeding the war to the aftermath. The section on the Divine Offspring characters is also useful given that just about any personality in Homeric Greece worthy of note is the son/daughter of some diety or other. GMs who intend to allow the PCs change the course of saga will find helpful the "What If" section detaling alternative resolutions for the war.
About the only minor blot I can bring up is that some of the stats are not particularly true to their descriptions in the myths (Agamemnon - who sacrificed his daughter Iphigenia to placate the goddess Athena - is Lawful Good?).
