One of the ways Age of Legends makes adventuring in Ancient Greece fast and fun is through character archetypes. These are templates with enough pre-defined to ensure a character which is enjoyable to play but leaves plenty of scope for customisation. There are eight archetypes in the book with each having three sub-types. The Lowly Archetype has the sub-types of Farmer, Refugee and Thief. There are great role-playing opportunities available as these humble people are selected by the gods to be champions and find themselves face-to-face with the most powerful and highborn people in the land.
