This book has heroes and deities from 11 differant cultures. Arthurian has King Arthur, Merlin, Morgan La Fay and his knights of the round table. Arthur is a paladin/ bard. There is celtic mythology. Norse mythology has Odin, Thor, Freya, Loki and Valkyries. Odin and Thor are gods. This allows paladins and clerics to get a more better deity to champion, the Arthurian.

Format: Hardcover
If the 1st edition of the book wasn't a necessary item for most gamers, the second edition is. The reason for this is that the book tell you which sphere of control are accessible to a priest depending on his deity and also the special powers granted to priest by their deities. This is a positive change that make the priest class seems more realistic to me. However the new concept of avatar (a weaker physical representation of a god that can be sent on the prime plane in his place) is unecessary to say the least. The gods have already many servant Solaar, Planetar ,Deva, Demons & Devils to do their work that the creation of the ambiguous notion of avatar (probably created to avoid the sacrilege of having high level players posing a threat to the gods) is only complicating the problem. The beautiful artwork that was one of the strong point of the original edition is absent from the second edition and you also loose two pantheons (finnish & sumerian )in the mix. All in all you can consider that the second edition is completing the original one but is a little weak to stand on it's own.
