Godkeeping: Dungeon Mastering in Theros


Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

Make the most of your myths! For any dungeon master thinking about starting a Theros campaign, or simply enticed by the concept, there are many things to muse about. How do you get a party of larger than life heroes to get along? How do I make the setting my own? How well do the most well-worn tropes of Western litterature translate to adventure roleplay?

This supplement contains tips and suggestions for approaching mythical storytelling and using the genre to its full potential. It includes random tables for everything from Reasons for War to Dramatic Irony, as well as 210 reasons for the gods to fight each other. In addition, it includes suggested pieces of lore to make Theros bigger, giving the heroes more map to explore and more reasons to take to the sea to see what lies beyond. It's the thing you don't show your players to make sure they are kept constantly at awe at your inventive plot hooks and imaginative storytelling.

Included is:

Greater Theros - a continent of sea trade and conflicts, including pirates and the Triton River Kingdoms.

A reinterpretation of Mogis and the Minotaurs.

Divine and mundane tensions and conflicts in Theros, to make the setting dynamic.

A deep-dive into bringing mythical narratives to your table.

A suggested campaign structure leading you through long-form storytelling in Theros.

ETA June 2023: Hi! Since Godkeeping is now a Gold bestseller, I figured I'd take the time to revisit it and update it a little bit, to make it a title we can be proud of. This new version has fewer run-on sentences and typos, and makes a bit more sense in general. We also included some rule changes that have annoyed us from the original MOT and 11 new items that make use of PC piety scores. Happy keepin'!

As a DM who's new to Homebrew and the Theros setting, I found this supplement to be very helpful! If you're someone who reads the Mythic Oddysseys of Theros (MOT) book and think "Okay they gave me an idea for a potential campaign, but wh [...]

Excellent resource which has helped me immensely. This text provides depth to some areas of the campaign guide which lack complexity. Great ideas for creating underlying conflict in the game, expansion of the known world, lots of tables for god-god con [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
