    Anyone know a good source for SW greek myth characters?

    Have you considered Olympus, Inc.? I have not read it, but it seems like they would be in there as NPCs.

    EDIT: I found this link on Drivethru Olympus Inc. SWADE Update - Fabled Environments | Olympus, Inc | DriveThruRPG.com

      yup...working on my supers world ideas. Main source of powers is decedent's of gods, though most do not know it. Argonauts were the first "Super Team", but again not a wildly believed thing. Was trying to get a handle on how powerful they should be...thinking pulp level (with the few immortals in the bunch having TONS of xp by now

        I used Mystical Throne Entertainment’s Mythos for ideas for creating Riordanverse-like demigods. I loved the breadth of ideas and setting details, but thought some of the rules were a little bit heavy and used it as a basis for just creating my own race per SWADE rules.

        I also thought Chimera Press’ Mythic was useful for stats. It’s lighter on details and Greek mythos because it includes stuff inspired by Egyptian and Celtic lore.

          So little update, in my world super powers come from the intermingling of bloodlines with interdimensional beings. These bloodlines began about 5,000 years ago. Greece was one of the hot spots...

          About 3500 years ago a group of heroes formed, many empowered by these bllodlines andcould be considered the first super team...This will be my "learning" prject for SPC3

          Jason, the leader

          Peles, with the ability to change into a giant rock man
          Zetas/Calasin: Winged warriors (Wind manipulators?)
          Hercules (Strongest man in the world)
          castor and Pollux (Fighting men, Regen?)
          Euphemus: Master of the Seas

            Thinking of dropping Castor/Pollux for Atlanta (adds a female and could go with a shapeshifter idea...). plus brings me to the magic number of 7 that I like for teams...

            JmOz perhaps Jason can use the Minion power and call up Caster and Pollox?

              No powers is my note that he is a "Batman" type character, I think he will lean into command and minion type powers. Atlanta will probably be in the same category (The green arrow to his Batman)

                Fair, then how about just named Allies? Just throwing out ideas.
