    Mythras Combat

    if interested in doing something like this, you might also check out M-Space's simplified combat, which removes limb hit points and makes action points fixed at 2. it still does have special effects, but all of 7, and 3 of those are only available on crits - only trip, impale, arise, and withdraw are on regular rolls. No reach, etc It should work fine as you state, though I admit I'd have the opposite reaction as you.
  2. I might suggest checking out the latest version of the Mythras Imperative, which does, in fact, have superhero powers in it. The ones from Agony and Ecstasy.

  4. lol, that's fantastic!
  5. wut? can you post a picture?
  6. re: Mythras Core - I have a pair of the core books from DTRPG and I'm happy with them. $28 a pop. Includes PDF, PDF tied to your account. re: lulu vs dtrpg - i have a brand new Monster Island hardcover from lulu. $42. it is very comparable to the core book. MI has 60# paper according to lulu and Core has 50# paper according to DTRPG. the difference is noticeable, though only with some effort. the ink saturation appears the same, or very close. Both are perfect bound and it appears approximately the same.

    I don't know of a home brew one, but maybe @threedeesixhas a better idea
  8. This is actually the most pressing question I’ve had in Mythras in a long time.
  9. @ReluctantGM wizard and cleric are going to be very close to their standard classic fantasy layouts I suspect. Maybe an extra gift here and there. The diviner gets to keep an extra d100 roll, for example. advantage is a reroll. That is covered by luck points, which, in and of themselves, map very well to inspiration. in my view, I think bonus actions map closely to special effects. Many of those could be just made into a custom special effect. Action points themselves are different, and sort of map oddly. You gotta think that a 5e character has a move and a standard and oft
  10. Picked it up yesterday and looking forward to reading through it.
  11. i noticed it was misformatted a bit in the newsletter. nothing that a knowledgeable person cannot decipher, but a thing none the less if you aren't a computer person.
  12. The RAW here is that there are no spells in sorcery Specifically to make a spirit do anything, and he’s left to negotiate. You could easily rule spirits are Creatures and use Dominate. I could see borrowing the animism rules and Applying appropriately. A true name might be needed, or some skill in poetry to impress him, or maybe even commerce. The RAW here is very much a toolkit.

    Mythra Wushu

    Indeed, but almost certainly not the hero, and likely only a minor protagonist if a protagonist. The giant weapon is often portrayed as slow and dangerous, which is counter to the protagonist. essentially, anything with an H force I think is probably in this category. Spears and other pole arms are much more used. You get the very occasional dadao or other two handed sword, and there is the scene in crouching tiger hidden dragon with the weapon the heroine cannot carry, but it’s uncommon. It doesn’t suit the Aesthetic

    Mythra Wushu

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BQu_jPAGhE_iolp1e5Ao9WmQBfy0wmqpI0NEYMaiqwQ/edit I also did a bunch of powers specifically for the Classic Fantasy monk that would work. "Thought about it" - yes. Could have a pile of martial arts styles, each with different special effects and tie them to mysticism effects as well. Armor and big weapons are not going to be anywhere as common. edit: you can probably find more using the spelling "wuxia".
