  1. The Mythras Gateway wouldn't be the best approach for Renaissance. I think what Pete and Ken need is someone who can take on pipeline, production and even some content creation to keep the Renaissance line afloat. TDM has a pretty full pipeline of its own, and I'm not familiar enough with the current Renaissance line-up to be able to assess how, or even if we could, help. But it's something ponder. If we were to help out, we wouldn't insist on any Mythraicising of Renaissance: it's its own thing, works extremely well as its own thing, and should stay as its own thing.
  2. I was trying to resist words like 'kewl', 'groovy', 'hip', and 'happening', but what the hell - it's a utopian 1970, so it's all of those.
  3. On the subject of delivery delays, we can't help or do much if you bought your print copy via Drivethru. As the book is produced via print on demand, any print or delivery issues need to be taken up with Drivethru directly: we cannot assist. If you buy a book directly from us, then we have a procedure on our website.
  4. Fantastic work by the Earl of Fife team - very much looking forward to working with them in the future.
  5. Soph is Sophia Conner, the TDM Art Director and graphic designer who put Fioracitta together, commissioned all the illustrations, and has also fallen in love with the setting. Her comments were made on Facebook; it's not a review.
  6. Fioracitta: the Heart of Power is now available. Fioracitta, the latest campaign setting for Mythras, is here. A complete fantasy city, inspired by the Italian city states of the Renaissance, Fioracitta: The Heart of Power, explores the city, its people, long history, myths, gods, and perhaps most importantly, magic, in evocative detail. Explore how Fioracitta came to dominate the surrounding lands of Ittara; the many factions that vie for control; the enigmatic non-human species who call Fioracitta home; the gods and goddesses who may be ambivalent to their worshippers, or subtly directi
  7. I've had some fantastic roleplaying scenarios based around creating fashion trends: that time the Straw Dogs mercenary band went shopping for banquet clothes in Milan in a Hawkmoon campaign; an outrageous fashion designer based around Jean Paul Gaultier creating the ultimate wedding dress in a Lyonesse playtest; the shopping montage when my Horror on the Orient Express characters had to buy new clobber in Zagreb... You can have a lot of fun with Fashion.
  8. Look closely at The Lady. Does she remind you of anyone?
  9. All the titles listed in this post are 3rd party publishers - not TDM directly. But the core team is 5 strong. Mythic Greece is still chugging along. Awesome takes time...
  10. If you thought that only TDM produced Mythras material, you'd be mistaken. There is a steadily growing field of third party publishers creating new, innovative, Mythras books - everything from full games to campaign settings and adventures. We thought it time to draw your attention to these publications, and hope you'll give them your support.Aeon Games PublishingAeon Games Publishing is our official publishing partner serving the UK and European markets (and beyond). They produce most of our core titles under license, but are also gearing up to release two original Mythras publications of the
  11. Likely mangled by the Mailchimp algorithm. I checked the Drivethru link, and the address is correct, but Mailchimp adds some additional coding I think.
  12. No, there's no time limit, and the links should be live. Perhaps try a different browser, or clear you cache; that may do the trick.
  13. Many of these questions are answered very eloquently by the author himself in ep.1.3 of the Mythras Matters podcast, but a few short answers in each question... Correct. It's a setting book. There is no scenario included, although there are loads of scenario ideas scattered throughout. A scenario is in the works, and will be published separately. Mythras core works best. At a push you can get by with Imperative, but the magic systems rely heavily on the core rules. No. There are some additional rules for building factions and temples within the city, but it focuses more
