Theros is out on Beyond. Mythic traits on monsters are cool.
The mythic monsters themselves are cool! I really like all three of them, and each of them could be used as boss-level monsters even for level 20 characters (especially Hythonia and Tromokratis) even without the mythic traits. With the mythic traits - well, let's just say even the highest level groups will have their work cut out for them!

Hythonia and Tromokratis could easily be used outside of Theros if you want a medusa or kraken end-boss or threat. Akrasta could definitely be a high-level worshiper of Lolth who was either "gifted" or punished (or both) with great powers but a monstrous form.

Honestly Akrasta could be used as a Lolth fight.
 

Well, for all who have been talking about Theros' place in the Multiverse, now that the book is out on D&D Beyond, this is what the text itself has to say about it:

"The world of Theros, as its inhabitants understand, includes three realms: the mortal world, the divine realm of Nyx, and the Underworld. They are three distinct planes of existence, tucked into their own pocket of the multiverse and shielded from the rest of the cosmos by the power of the gods. "
What is the world of Theros called. Just Theros. Or unnamed.

Do share. What are they.
Mythic Traits are boss traits for monsters. At their most basic it is pretty much a phase 2 of a boss fight. The Monster recovers healed in someway, and they gain new powerful legendary actions.

The most basic of them is Hythonia who sheds her skin to completely heal her damage, along with getting to reposition for free.

Mythic traits are also not taken into account for creating a monster instead it treated as having to defeat a monster twice. (So you will get twice as much xp from the monster as you would normally)

Goddamn nice.
 

The leonin. Why is it goddamn +2 Con and +1 Str. Again. For a group that is called a pride. The Cha boost. Where is it.
 


There's a section in the book that says people can't deny the existence of gods in Theros. Sounds like Therosians are more in touch with reality than us.

Ah, back to the old tradition of creating a multiverse that supposedly encompasses all the settings, then carving out exceptions for half the settings so they can have their own cosmologies.
 


It has a map of the "world" of theros, but it's only really a portion of a continent.
Actually, according to the text, that's pretty much all of the world.

"Compared to most worlds of the Material Plane, the mortal realm of Theros is small. The known world is barely two hundred miles across, with unexplored wilderness beyond. And some unknown distance beyond that is the edge of the world, where the sea flows off the disk of the world and into the starry void. "
 

Nice, they did some good research into the actual ancient Greek calendars. Lunisolar calendars with intercalary months were universal in ancient Greece, and very widespread in general until Caesar came along...
 


The subclasses seem okay, and the athlete background is good.
The bard got a nerf, and can't talk to animals until level 6.
Glory paladins got a huge nerf, and no longer get an increased critical hit as a channel divinity, and now have a divine smite/temporary hit point ability.
Athlete has Athletics and Acrobatics, land vehicles, and one language.

Goddamnit. The classes were too good from the off. And then they dropped the hammer on them.

Athletes should just run everywhere.
