Greek Mythology RPG from Expy Games Now Available

Written by Expy - Published on November 29, 2009

AreteDungeon Mastering is proud to announce the release of Arete, a greek mythology RPG. Nick DiPetrillo, the Arete game designer wrote a great how-to article yesterday on how to turn your D&D game into a Greek epic – I suggest you read it as it will give you a clear idea of what the game is about and how it plays.

The aspect of the game that really stands out for me is the shared narration mechanic. Players in Arete take on a larger storytelling role than other RPGs allow. Granted, I know a lot of DMs who let their players narrate their own actions and are very good at creating cinematic encounters, but the fact that the shared narration is part of the core of the game means less preparation for the DM and it lets characters forge themselves into heroes – the Greek epic way.

There’s a lot more in the game than just the shared narration aspect: check out Arete in our online store or read Nick’s article on how to turn your D&D game into a Greek epic.

Nick is also the author of Zombie Murder Mystery, Sailing Stormy Waters, and over 80 articles on this blog.

Meet Expy The Red Dragon

Expy is the mascot for DungeonMastering.com and the real mastermind behind Expy Games. He likes to hoard treasure, terrorize neighbors, burn down villages, and tell white dragon jokes..

No matter how fearful the legends claim dragons are, they always end up being defeated in 5 rounds by adventuring parties they encounter. That’s what dragons are – experience points for the heroes in your Dungeons & Dragon party. And this mascot is no different, hence the name Expy.

    I absolutely love this genre. I’ve had to fumble through OGL Ancients (by Mongoose Publishing) or use GURPS to get my fix for years. Hopefully, this one will be just what the genre needed.
