At the Theros world-building panel at PAX Prime last weekend, there was much ado about the handful of newly-spoiled cards from Theros, which the panelists integrated rather seamlessly into their discussion about scratch-building a new plane from ancient Greek tropes. But another exciting announcement they made has little to do with new cards and everything to do with that background flavor. Following up the apparent success of Doug Beyer's Return to Ravnica "The Secretist" e-book series, Jenna Helland will be writing three e-novels for Theros block.
Details thus far are scarce - we don't have titles or release dates for the trilogy yet - but apparently they will be $2 apiece and available for all e-book platforms at sites such as amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.
The plot involves Elspeth seeking peace on Theros, being conscripted into heroism by the white god Heliod, and then partnering with the dashing, tricksterish Meletian hero Daxos. Beyond that, we're not positive where the story will go - although we can puzzle out the main arc based on information we already know, but that's a story for another time.
Will you be picking up the Theros e-book series? Let me know in the comments.
