Subject and Contents[edit]

The Table of Contents for this book is online as is a timeline.

This book portrays the Theban Tribunal as rich in magical resources, both raw vis and ancient lore.[1] The Tribunal has many nature spirits and other supernatural denizens, and a deep connection to the magic of classical antiquity.

Compared to some other Tribunal books, this supplement has a comparatively brief treatment of hedge wizards.[2]

Opinion and Reviews[edit]

What This Book Will Add to Your Saga[edit]

Greece is a wonderful setting for mystical atmosphere. Your magi may want to visit the Theban Tribunal to investigate its magical secrets, perhaps as Seekers or as initiates into a Mystery Cult. Similarly, the great city of Constantinople is a natural destination for magi. Even if your magi live in a distant Tribunal, there are plenty of in-character reasons for them to visit the Tribunal of Thebes.

This Book Might Not Fit Your Game If ...[edit]

The Theban Tribunal is a lot different from Western Europe. The cultural differences might make seem too "foreign" for some Troupes' liking.

Reviews and Comments[edit]

Please add your own comments about the book.

The mystical coverage of this book is satisfying. It's nice to see each of the four Realms getting explicit treatment. --Andrew Gronosky
