Odyssey of the Dragonlords: Player's Guide

This setting while promising, pays only lip service to the Ancient Greek mythology and history it claims to be inspired by. There are the trappings of Greek myth, a Gaia and Ouranos figure, a Titanic progenitor race of gods, and the modern gods. But it goes no farther than this. The setting seems to be stuck in a very modern idea of how the ancient world worked, and it suffers for it. In addition to this, the original portions seem singularly uninspired and noninclusive. Why have the authors fridged the goddess of war? Why are gods that remain so aggressively bland? Why is there no LGBT+ rep in the entire setting? Why are there female satyrs and why in the name of everything good do they shave their arms and bodies? The entire setting seems specifically designed to appeal to one specific demographic: straight, white men who read Percy Jackson when they were younger. There's nothing wrong with appealing to specific demographics, of course, but why hobble yourself in this way when all it would take is a little more inclusion to widen your audience? The setting has promise, but it needs a lot of work.
