I just saw your submission as part of the OSR June Jam. This reminded me of all the epic poems I had to read as an undergrad, but I won't hold that against you! Thanks for allowing us to get copies when we are short on cash. Rated!

Thálassa is a RPG where you play as explorers of the Mediterranean in the Mythical Age. It incorporates elements from Greek mythology, with mythological weapons, magic and monsters. Give this game a try if you're into Greek mythology!
Ciao, Roberto. Come mai non c’è una versione originale italiana di Thálassa? Stavo considerando comprare il livro in Lulu, ma preferirei in italiano, per ricordarlo e metterlo in prattica, meglio del inglese.
Ciao, non prevedo una traduzione in tempi brevi, anzi ho il dubbio che non la farò mai l’interesse che può suscitare nel potenziale pubblico italiano non bilancia lo sforzo mi spiace
Anche, non capisco questi attributi e il loro significato. No parlo greco, ma mi sembra che le traduzioni siano sbagliate. Può essere? • kratos (KRA) (strength) -> I found the meaning to be “state” • tekhne (TEK) (nimbleness) -> art • thumos (THU) (control) -> anger or dough (depending on which z you pick)
Hi! Where would be a good place to contact you? I have a lot of opinions on the game, but I'd like to discuss it a bit with you before putting a review on my blog.
Both are working - many thanks!!!
Went to check out the Thálassa SRD and the link is not working - might want to double-check it.
