What attracts me to BRP is actually the content as much as the system. Somehow BRP games seem to end up with the kinds of settings that I find incredibly interesting. Glorantha, X-Files, Lovecraft, After the Vampire Wars, Elric, the reams of historical content etc.I'm just wondering what is attracting other people to BRP, especially Mythras, and why are we all congregating here?
The rule system from Pendragon to Mythras emulates very well the "mythic/slightly more than normal" characters that are my favourite type of PCs. So Arthurian knights, warriors from Greek myth, Conan etc. There's also a general emphasis on integrating the skills into the culture/setting, so that often you don't need to roll. Rather just eyeball the character's skill and be aware of what a "professional blacksmith" say is capable of in this setting.
In both content and system it's perfect visceral low fantasy. Can't wait for Mythic Babylon, Greece and the Samurai take on Pendragon coming.
