Theros: Orchid in Ilysia



Continue your heroic exploits in the Mythic Odysseys of Theros setting!

In this adventure for a party of level 5 characters, the player characters undertake a quest to remove a curse laid down by three priests of Erebos on the polis of Meletis.

A leonin messenger of Heliod arrives — claiming to know a way to undo the curse. But  the path ahead is treacherous!

Trust must be earned, for Heliod has his own reasons for intervening. 


The quest takes adventurers across the Siren Sea to a mysterious island. 

There they encounter a warrior with a tragic past who is pledged to stop them. Unraveling her own mystery might be the key to redemption for both her and the polis!


The adventurers learn that obtaining the means to ending the curse isn’t the most challenging part of their mission. They must pass through a gauntlet of Erebos’ most loyal and dangerous minions.

Even then, it will take ingenuity and bold action to escape the clutches of the god of the Underworld!

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.
