  1. I thought that might be the case, I was just wondering how the skill system scales at higher levels. I wanted to avoid characters just putting points into Influence instead of a courtesy skill, because it will have more 'uses'. I know in some systems there is no default skill for certain advanced skills. I just wanted to really award the player who had invested in the skills, rather than letting someone who has a high influence skill make the roll over them. I think I will leave it to my players - that seem fair, Thanks for your replies
  2. I always think that if a player has invested points into a particular skill then there should be an opportunity to use it in the game. Often, with social skills, players use their natural role playing ability to cover these skills. I really do try to insist that they have the opportunity to use a skill so that even if they role play a wonderful influence conversation, they still need to roll the skill to see if there are successful. But I was wondering how people play professional skills. For example, as the title might suggest, courtesy? If the character does not have this skill - are they allowed to attempt to be courteous in a situation? Do these skills default to another with the difficulty increasing? I would really like to explore how other GMs play this. If you have a really great method then please do let me know
  3. Hi everyone, When creating and running my sessions, I like to put in rumours and information that the players can gather from people they know. On page 22 of the CRB there is some information about how to run contacts and even within the passion section it would be possible to have contacts which they are 'loyal' to. I was wondering: 1) how do you run contacts in your sessions? 2) Do you use passions for this so that players can develop them? 3) When they interact with their contacts, do you ask for rolls for the social interaction, e.g. influence skill rolls? Looking forward to hearing your replies inwils
  4. Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the Mythras Matters Podcast - if you haven't listened then please do check it out. I am always looking for people to do reviews for the podcast, focusing on TDM products, so I thought I would reach out on here, to see if anyone would be willing. In the second episode (Tread carefully in the Mire) you can listen to a review if you are interested in what form this can take. If you are interested in providing a review. Then here is some information which might be helpful. a) You can record your review in your time using either .mp3 or .wav format. b) This can be sent to me for feedback - don't worry, its not a dreadful process, just need to check that it meets the feel of the podcast. c) Provide contact details so that these can be put in the show notes. Just because you have submitted something does not mean it will be used (I have to say that to cover myself). If you are interested in getting involved or have any other questions, then please do get in touch. inwils
  5. Hi everyone, As the title tells you, episode 4 of the Mythras Matters podcast is now live. This month has an interview with the creators of Mythic Babylon and I talk about experience rolls. Enjoy! inwils http://www.buzzsprout.com/266482
  6. Something a bit different from the usual rules videos. In this video, I ask questions to the player Mr Pickles about how he plays his character Bartleby the Theist. Hope you enjoy Interview with a Theist https://youtu.be/NICPje1WuqI
  7. One of the things I like about the Mythras Ruleset is how there was not a huge list of magical items which players can find in chests and hordes of treasure. I run a human only campaign as well, I like the idea that simple factors such as lack of light really gets the players to think (love dynamic lighting on Roll20 too) I was wondering, how do you deal with magical items in your campaigns? I am not sure whether I want to start putting it into the campaign although I have seen some people do this successfully. Do people go down the 'better quality' idea? or the use of making some of the folk magic permanent - e.g. bladesharp? Looking forward to hearing how you incorporate magical items.
  8. Next, in the Mythras Rules series - let's delve into the divine magic of the theists! https://youtu.be/rgmod0OH-5o

  11. Second Video on Brotherhoods and Orders - in this one I look at membership and ranks - includes a snippet of an interview with Mr Pickles who plays Bartleby Fumus!
  12. Ever wanted to be a member of a secret society? Always seen that infamous brotherhood but never managed to join them? Well in this video I give you an overview of the Orders and Brotherhoods in the ruleset which is Mythras.
  13. The second video from my series about experience rolls in #Mythras - passions and new skills and spells! https://youtu.be/NSkm-Lidk30 The Design Mechanism
  14. Thanks everyone, really helpful
  15. I'm interested how you all GM combat Traits - do you say that these automatically work or put in some sort of opposed or difficulty grades - I was thinking of implementing some sort of Taunt for our noble warrior, like a challenge of a battle cry which distracts the enemy from what they are doing and focuses their attack on him. #verynoble - thoughts?
  16. You are all probably all well versed in experience rolls within the game, but I just wanted to share my latest video about them. I've tried to make them shorter, so the next ones will deal with new skills and improving characteristics. Feel free to share
  17. thanks for taking the time to comment, much appreciated

  19. Hi everyone, I recently purchased the Mythras Combat Cards from Aeon games. I was really impressed with them and the accompanying PDF so I made this review video https://youtu.be/eQiwO1BCMrc Hope you find it useful. inwils
  20. If anyone is interested in the play through of Agony Ecstasy then you can see the next episode here https://youtu.be/7R5ARBZ3czE
  21. Hi everyone, After asking for feedback on the actual play and rules videos, I've combined them somewhat to look at a specific example of the rules. This video is about opposed rolls, with examples from our actual play. Hope you enjoy, and please take the time to like, comment and subscribe - it helps me continue to make the video and get closer to my dream. inwils
  22. Hi everyone, I was hoping that you could spend a couple of minutes to give me your views about actual play videos. You might be aware, that we stream Mythras LIVE on a Saturday evening on Twitch, uploading these videos to Youtube for people to enjoy after the event. However, I have noticed that these are not viewed that much at all (8 views for the last one) and I was wondering what your opinion about these videos is. I really want to support the community as well as providing information for new players etc. The rules videos are doing much better than the actual play sessions. So, what do you think about actual play videos? Can you suggest a different format you would prefer? Is there something you would like to see? I'm not precious about them at all and I am happy to take criticism/feedback so your honest opinions would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time in engaging with this post. inwils

    Podcast Anyone

    Hi everyone, Someone commented on one of my YouTube Videos that they would like a podcast of the actual play. So, responding to my audience I have looked at a previous run series of actual plays to see if they would transfer to the podcast media. Would welcome your comments Listen to "Mythras: Ubbin Falls Episode 1.1" at https://www.buzzsprout.com/266482/996187-mythras-ubbin-falls-episode-1-1 Also, I am currently working on two other podcasts, so keep a look out for what is coming next inwils
  24. Hi everyone, As you have come to expect, after my actual play session I always have a few questions which we reflect on as a group and come to some agreement over these. So, I was wondering how you play the resistance to the Summon Spell. Gully, used it to summon all the swords from the bandits to his hands. They get a resist of evade to prevent them from being pulled from their hands. We have rationalised why evade over brawn but is it just a roll or is it actually 'evading'? So questions: Do you use evade to resist against the summon spell? Or do you use something else? If you do use Evade, if they are successful, has the resisting combatant actually 'evaded' and is now prone, or have they just managed to keep hold of their weapon. Looking forward to your answers :) inwils
