The plane of Theros is ruled by a pantheon of all-powerful gods. Krakens, minotaurs, and other monsters threaten the safety of walled cities. Heroes rise to battle, bolstered by their devotion to the gods. Theros is a very dangerous land outside of the walled cities Meletis, Akris and Setessa. Nyx is the night sky, and home of the gods, it moves around each night. The five Gods are: Heliod, Erebos, Nylea, Thassa, and Purphoros. The gods can take multiple forms and walk among mortals. The planeswalker Elspeth Tirel will fight a Hydra and attracts the attention of Heliod. Elspeth doesn't want to be a hero and does not believe she will be called on to be a leader in a world of gods. Minotaurs are the rampaging savages of Theros.
