 The Greek Olympians and Titans are not unique and the gods worshipped in other lands seek power in Greece. No foreign pantheon will try a direct challenge to the Olympians but rely on opportunities created when the Olympians are distracted by the Titans or each other. Preoccupied,​ the Olympians have failed to notice how the number of foreign cults in their lands is growing. The Greek Olympians and Titans are not unique and the gods worshipped in other lands seek power in Greece.

-Ancient and powerful beings like <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​gaia">​Gaia</​apdx>​ pose as large a threat as Cronus and can drive epic adventures such as trying to recapture<​apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​echidna_typhon">​Typhon</​apdx>​. Other immortals how serve the gods such as <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​cyclopes_elder">​the Elder Cyclopes</​apdx>​ have their own schemes. Earning the favour of these servants can be useful and avoids the problems inherent with dealing with their patrons. ​

-Not every conflict is the result of divine meddling and the seething mass of humanity is just as capable of providing rich plots as the gods. The scale of mortal conflicts must be appropriate to the champions'​ high standing e.g. full-scale war between poleis. Mortal conflicts make far more interesting adventures if they are over an insult, democracy or love rather than trade or resources. 
- 
-Populating the far reaches of the Hellenic world are many non-human races such as the centaurs and fawns. They have their own cultures and many live very close to nature, fitting well with adventures about the nature gods, like Artemis or Dionysus. Non-human mortals will end up in conflict with each other and with humans over land, resources, trade and cultural differences. This can be the basis of an adventure or it can introduce a larger plot. So fighting in <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​thessaly">​Thessaly</​apdx>​ with migrating centaurs who turn out to have been driven south by barbarians gathering in the hills may lead on to a plot involving Coeus.
