D&D 5E in Ancient Greece: The New Argonauts 5E Conversion

Grab your sandals and play some D&D in Ancient Greece! I've (with permission) taken Sean K. Reynold's awesome The New Argonauts PDF and am converting it to 5E. If you're a fan of Perseus, Odysseus, Hercules, or any of the other classics, check it out. Thanks! :D
There are dozens of free PDFs for my campaign settings on my website! Veranthea Codex (a coterie of 6 diverse areas of play in one heavily detailed 380+ page Pathfinder RPG book), Hypercorps 2099 (superhero cyberpunk Pathfinder and D&D 5E), Mists of Akuma (eastern fantasy noir steampunk for D&D 5E), 2099 Wasteland (apocalyptic atomic fantasy D&D 5E), and Book of Exalted Darkness (holy decopunk and evil for D&D 5e)! Check em out!

Nice work. Thank you for sharing. I hadn't heard of this one before (I missed the whole 3.x era), and will check it out.

Thank you for checking it out! If you end up bopping around city-states with your group let me know what you get into and how things hold up.

Sean also did an incredible little product about reskinning creatures that's still relevant for 5E (it's called File Off the Serial Numbersand is $2) that I strongly recommend.

That is awesome ! I took a Greece Mythology class at university. Fascinating. I'm always looking for new campaign ideas. Will download it asap. Thanks.

That looks cool, would love to see more. There are some interesting aspects I already fancy, like bloodlines.

I really liked the fact that Sean put up The New Argonauts for free. That was very kind of him.

One day I'll work out a way to Spelljammerise this! :twisted:

I hope that it can be turned into a Print on Demand title, at some point.

I can't stress how keen I am on Sean's work, and specifically he killed it with The New Argonauts. When I asked if it was alright to convert it I was kiiiinda hoping he was going to say something like "I'd rather you didn't because I'm going to." :p

More is on the way, but just monsters I reckon. The first post should be everything required for a GM and players to get their game started.

Sean is awesome. :D I doubt he'll loop back around to fiddle with a file from ~13 years ago (if he still has it even!) BUT I did print it out and it's not going to destroy your ink cartridge--I'd do the same and hit it with some binding.

Anywho--THE BULLS OF COLCHIS!

Got back on the horse and this will be auto-posting every Sunday into October. Plus there's a handy dandy organizational page now! :D

I wouldn't feel proper making a PDF out of this but I *did* poke Sean K Reynolds to let him know I finished all the crunch work so if he ever feels like it should exist, I'll put a 5E New Argonauts thing together proper. :D
