[Theros] New Magic Items

Post by Havard »

The Youtube Channel Nerd Immersion has taken a closer look at some of the magic items introduced in the new Theros sourcebook.

What do you think of these items? Do you agree with the assessments in the video??


Do you like the idea of female Satyrs btw? I thought Dryads were the female Satyrs! :) But I do like the illustration he shows and I do see his point that races and classes should be available regardless of whether you want to play a male or female character.


Also, do you know if the Chariot Rules have appeared previously in 5E? I had a topic about War Chariots on Mystara over here, so it would be interesting to see how it might be handled in the current edition.

This never even occurred to me until it came up here. I guess you're right, but it's been a long time since I last read about Greek mythology. I'm fine with female satyrs, and I assume the M:tG cards featured art of female satyrs. If that's the case, then regardless of whether it's appropriate in a genuine Greek mythological setting, it would be true to Theros. On the other hand, if the DM and players want to alter the setting or use the rules in a different Greek-themed setting, it's trivial change.

I don't recall seeing these before now.
