Theros Lore

Theros lore | characters | oracles | seas | items | other

"Theros is a plane governed by the gods of Nyx, where heroes face monsters, the sea rages, people offer burnt offerings and adventures take place. It is defined by mankind's struggle against the primal forces of the world, and mankind's conflict with the many other sapient races that populate the world"

Taken from Theros at gamepedia. There is a list of secondary characters.

Theros was originally created for Magic: the Gathering so we can check cards at Gatherer or Scryfall. For just Theros cards from Scyfall try this link

For a place to discuss Theros there is a place at reddit called r/TherosDMs

Also covered are superstitions, omens & portents, riddles and a riddle maker (no answers though).
