    Dune Freaks: Defiler Walk With Me

    Preamble and Introduction So, this thread is to be an accounting of my Mythras Dark Sun game. As per my previous ACKS thread, this is not a story hour. I am not aiming to regale you with my amazing fiction and deep characterisations. Instead, I will talk about the events of the sessions, my...

    Mythras Dark Sun (not brought to you by Mankcam)

    @Mankcam has failed to deliver, so I must step into the breach. This project is something I've been working on sporadically for a couple years now, and I've surprised myself by getting it to a nearly complete state (or as close as I can reasonably get it to one without actually putting it...

    Any good toolkit books for the different genres of ttrpg out there?

    Looking through my copy of mythras has got me thinking about modifiers, bonuses, roll percentages, and using the existing rules as creatively as possible, to the point where I want to look at other ttrpg systems in more depth and what I can scratch together from looking at other folk's takes at...

    Systems with hit locations and automatic firearms

    Based on a discussion we are having on the Mythras discord and thinking about it - what systems have true hit locations and have automatic fire? By true hit locations I mean one where there is not a default location hit and moving it applies a penalty. Sort of interested in making Mythras...

    [Mythras] best practice for GMs

    I'm prepping a Mythras campaign at the moment and this will be my first attempt at running (and playing) the game. In fact it will be the first time I've run any BRP derivated game in about twenty years. The campaign is called Gangs of Metropolis, and will focus on the adventures of a gang of...

    Observations on Motivation from Optimization, and Constrained Design Environments

    Different games, different players, different ways of having fun. Gameplay decisions driven by realism, greed, or optimization. Premises skipped or abandoned, unusual ideas adopted. There are lots of reasons to play TTRPG's, and even more to play some systems over others. I've struggled with...

    Knocked Around, Knocked Out [Mythras]

    Hello pubbers! I've been playing Mythras for the past 2 years or so across various historical settings (none of the officially published ones unfortunately), and this upcoming weekend my newest adventure will allow my group to play as non-human characters. I'm using the Classic Fantasy lineup...

    Seeking Someone to teach me the Mythras Ruleset

    As Mythras seems like both a fun system and the most popular system on this site, I've decided that to expand my presence here beyond griping and arguing (I'm really sorry about that, believe me), I am going to learn both the system and GMing in that system. Does anyone want to help me do so...

    Looking for players for a mythras game in a colonial setting

    The setting of the game is a new frontier mythic renaissance style in the transitory period between muskets being the main weapon and older weapons and armour combos. Magic is heavily restricted besides folk magic. This game is going to have a direction that is expected to he followed for at...

    BRP players - any variant?

    I’ve noticed we seem to have a lot of Mythras players and a reasonable sprinkling of other BRP variants too (Especially Call of Cthulhu). How many of you play a variant of BRP?

    What would you use for Veteran of the Psychic Wars?

    I’ve loved BOC since I discovered them in high school. My username is directly from them. A catch line I’ve used a lot is “veteran of the psychic wars”, but what system would you use to run the psychic wars? I’ve pondered in this and considered V&V but my enthusiasm for it wanes. I’ve thought...

    Mythras Game - New Spaces Open

    Lyonesse Update

    It's almost, almost here. More proofs arrived today, and here are some pictures of both the hardcover POD version, and the softcover. The quality of both is very good. The ink on the softcover interior seems a little heavier, and on mine, the top edge of the page border has been ever so...

    Of Mythras, Runequest, Glorantha, Edition wars, and where to start???

    So I've been seriously wanting to dig into Runequest/Mythras for some time. I want to read it, absorb it and put it in my back pocket for when my players least expect it and whip it out, and go BOOM! This is what we're doing... (and hopefully they'll bite. I've been taking them out of their...

    Fantastic Idaho! (Mythras)

    Intro So about a week ago I mention doing a modern fantasy setting powered by Mythras. I spent the last week doing a leisurely research on the state and its history. Also I read the Mythras core book and 75% of AtVW, enough to get a feel for the rules but not yet gaining a firm mastery of...
