  1. Both the quality and price of Lulu's hardcovers has improved a great deal recently. I've taken delivery of proof copies of all our latest titles, and I'm extremely happy with the quality of the binding with all of them - especially the thicker titles.
  2. It's not referenced specifically in either Legend or Mythras, but is one of these areas where GMs should apply a little simple logic based on the size and anatomy of the creature. Hacking off one leg of a giant spider is likely to enrage it. but unlikely to impede it's movement by much, or impair it's ability to fight. But if you hack off two legs from the same side, and then the creature is going to be unbalanced and start to suffer. It will likely consider fleeing or seeking safer ground. We do give a lot of advice about how creatures fight in different conditions in Mythras - and these
  3. We're prioritising titles that aren't on Lulu yet. Once we're done, we'll then add format options for existing titles. The great thing about Lulu is that it's far, far easier to create and modify titles than it is on Drivethru. Faster too, so just keep an eye on the Lulu store.
  4. Clearly an error on Drivethru's part. Their customer service is pretty good though, so I'm sure they'll get you another copy arranged.
  5. Yes. We're revamping the entire line we have on Lulu as we speak. The aim is to have everything available in hardback. Lulu's prices and options have become a lot more favourable, so we're taking advantage of it.
  6. Are you interested in trying Mythras with an experienced GM, but never had the opportunity? Have you read through the rules but wonder how they work in play? Are you maybe just curious about roleplaying games generally (or know someone who is), and want to try them out? Our good friend Nigel Clarke is about to start an Introduction to the Mythras series of games. Things start with Shrine of the Traitor Gods and later move on to other, different, scenarios generally designed to help people get into Mythras. Nigel will be running games on Saturdays late afternoon GMT to allow for playe
  7. Our latest scenario for Mythras is 'A Bird in the Hand', a dangerous adventure set on Monster Island, involving the characters in the theft of a strange and unique bird from the clutches of a local rogue. But theft has consequences, and on Monster Island, those consequences can be dire. The straightforward soon becomes complicated, leading the characters deep into the Tane Jungle, and the hunting lands of the lizardfolk tribes... Written by John Holmes, A Bird in the Hand is 56 pages, and includes a special guide to sandbox exploration of Monster Island. Priced at $13.99 for the Print on
  8. Okay. Threedeesix has very politely asked for the thread-capping to stop. It seems some of you aren't listening. Knock off the sniping now. Consider this topic closed.
  9. Casting the Runes, Investigative Roleplaying in the World of M. R. James, is the latest release from The Design Mechanism. Using the acclaimed Gumshoe Engine (designed by Robin D. Laws), players take on the roles of Edwardian investigators involving themselves in the supernatural, uncanny, and sinister workings of the occult. From ancient demons to haunted artefacts; biblical monsters to ghosts and vampires; secret societies to lone sorcerers dabbling in the damned; Casting the Runes contains everything you need to recreate the tales of M. R. James and his contemporaries such as Arthur Machen,
  10. http://rlyehreviews.blogspot.com/2020/12/manners-magic-machination.html "fantastic and thorough, almost compendium-like adaptation of a classic fantastical setting, one that is likely to feel almost familiar to many gamers, because even if they have not read the novels, they will have encountered its influence on Dungeons & Dragons."
  11. Um... Mythras Imperative Reloaded isn't an actual 'thing' - that's just the tagline we gave to the post announcing that we'd added some more content to Mythras Imperative, so searching the internet for Mythras Imperative Reloaded isn't going to offer much aside from a forum post. @Belisar, Mythras Imperative is a short, free, introduction to the Mythras rules. It has everything you need to try the system, including a simple magic system and a range of superpowers. It isn't meant to compare with the BGB. For that, you should take a look at the Mythras core rules. Where core Mythras and
  12. A Tantravelles expansion is most likely, as is further detail on the major cities.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. Fantastic work by the Earl of Fife team - very much looking forward to working with them in the future.
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. Look closely at The Lady. Does she remind you of anyone?
  21. 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...
  22. 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
  23. Likely mangled by the Mailchimp algorithm. I checked the Drivethru link, and the address is correct, but Mailchimp adds some additional coding I think.
