Honestly, a dragon-breathing Fireman is something I'm going to use. It's got cache.
No, I was thinking a fireman that breathes fire, apparently, but what he's actually doing is breathing dragons. Complications seem obvious...So then what is it? A fireman that suddenly starts vomiting dragons all over the place, having no idea what's happening to himself and just wanting it to stop?
Weed permitting...A friend invited me over to try out the Alien rpg. We didn't get far for a few reasons. The GM wasn't as prepared as they thought they'd be, and this group tends to go off on tangents. Drinking and smoking weed doesn't help. Still, I've had worse experiences, and they're all good people, so in two weeks we'll see if we can finish the scenario
You should ask them what type of Big Bad they should encounter and how many rounds they would like combat to take before they defeat him.My group presented me with an ultimatum last night. They feel that it's been long enough and they think their characters ought to uncover the location of the mysterious planet where the absurdly advanced technology they've been collecting comes from. They're probably right; it's time to move forward on that.
i find it helps to think of calculated action points as another aspect of granular combat for Mythras. it means that you can leverage press advantage and overextend opponent to overcome an inherent disadvantage. Also it really helps with spears.This will be a popular post. I'm reading the Mythras rules, more of a close read this time. I want to get a little more granular with the combat rules.
Yeah, I really like the look of some of the moving parts.i find it helps to think of calculated action points as another aspect of granular combat for Mythras. it means that you can leverage press advantage and overextend opponent to overcome an inherent disadvantage.

Did you end up using the dragon shaped elementals?The dragon did not get one-shotted this time! It actually was a fun, challenging, and interesting battle!
Still, after three rounds of combat, the dragon had his right eye shot out, his left wing was damaged, he'd been pinned to the ground, and he'd been muzzled, preventing the use of his fire-breath. In game-mechanics terms, he was Shaken, Distracted, Vulnerable, and Bound, and had also taken two Wounds.
At that point all the remaining fight went out of him.

Sounds like your GM knows you well!Last night our D&D group had our first in-person session in over a year! It was great, our party was sent on a mission to investigate sightings of a new Hydra that had wiped out a squad of soldiers. We show up at the location and find a pond with a small hut and a large barn. Suddenly around the corner of the hut comes a gaggle of geese, who my wizard instantly fireballs, lighting the hut on fire and instantly killing the geese. Turns out there was an old goose herder around the corner how tragically got vaporized in the crossfire. Realizing that my rash hatred of geese had gone too far, my wizard walked into the pond to drown himself. While he was doing that a thunderous HONK! sounded, and out of the barn came a 5 headed Honkdra, also known as Doom Goose. The battle was furious and one of our party members got swallowed by the Honkdra, I used Prismatic Ray to great effect. We ended the session with a final killing blow to the wretched beast.
Yeah it had a thunderwave attack. Also one of the heads had a sword that we looted:I assume that one of the Honkdra's attacks is some sort of very loud honk that can burst eardrums? Also I have vivid memories as a child having a neighbors goose bend over and shoot shit at my friend and I, we were wearing shorts and I got hit on the shin and recall the bugger stung a surprising amount. Aggressive nasty, loud SoB's, geese.
I hear ya, I really doJust when I say I’m enjoying not GMing, I get the urge to run something. I think it might be an addiction.
