  1. This is one reason I like Mythras. There's just over 20 standard skills, and the rest are professional skills (available by culture and career during chargen, or special training later), of which a starting character might only have a half dozen tops. Mythras also keeps things under control by distinguishing between general skills and specialized skills. Having said that, I wouldn't want to simplify the skill list much more. Since most BRP-family games don't have advantages & disadvantages, skills really help differentiate characters from one another.
  2. And to me. It's fine if someone doesn't like it, but one ought not pretend one's subjective preferences are objective flaws by using fancy philosophical terms such as "counter-intuitive" ...
  3. On a related note, in my own little BRP hack: The Rule of One. If the die representing the ones digit comes up a 1, that is a special result. If the roll succeeded, it is a special success, henceforth known as a critical. If the roll failed, it is a special failure, henceforth known as a fumble. A critical is a better result than a success, which is better than a failure, which is better than a fumble, or: CRITICAL > SUCCESS > FAILURE > FUMBLE
  4. Honestly, I just want errata, as per below, and then a hardcover POD option. That's it.
  5. It sounds like AEther: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/56984/AEther-Core-Book
  6. Is that right? It thought the core book gave an example of hiding a scroll in a library or some such thing.
  7. That's a good sign! I'll keep an eye out, and perhaps this thread can serve as a place to report them. Thanks!
  8. Odd Soot is just plain neat ... Any errata I should be aware of? I've looked around, and if there's a document or a thread, I've missed it. Thanks!
  9. Hey, yo. I dig Mythras' approach to skills, but I'm also wondering about the conceal skill. I get what it's for in general, but it seems awfully specialized to devote a whole skill to. On the other hand, maybe it has far more applications than I'm thinking of. So, whaddya got? I'll start with one: Hiding a car off-road by covering it with branches ... Your turn!
  10. Yah, the Mythras Gateway license - not OGL, but it looks pretty straightforward: http://thedesignmechanism.com/resources/Mythras Gateway License Public.pdf
  11. Sorry to hear that; I think BRPE would have been a nice little product. Still, as long as I have my BGB, I'm happy.
