Combat Style Cards for Mythras

A new player aid now exists


Combat Style Cards for Mythras


Combat styles, combat style traits, weapon traits and special effects are key parts of what makes Mythras so interesting in combat. I decided to make a player aid for my campaign that contains the key information for players about combat style they have chosen.

Combat style card contains the name and combat style traits of the style with an explanation what the trait provides.
Each of the combat styles contains usually several weapons. Most of the special effects that player can choose are the same for each of the weapons. So I gathered the common special effects within the combat style's weapons to the top of the page.
For each of the weapons the key details of the weapon are shown plus the possible weapon traits.
Underneath the basic information there are only those special effects specific to that weapon.
So how would player use this:
Let's say she knows the combat style Gladiator.
She has succeeded in the attack so she now has options
  • choose any of the items in the common block underneath the combat style - any from Close Range to Trip Opponent.
  • decide to use her Shortsword's Impale or
  • use her Buckler's Bash special effect.
When it is her turn to defend she can
  • use her Daredevil trait to evade blows without ending up prone or
  • she can passively block with her Buckler 2 locations or
  • she could actively parry with either her buckler or
  • she could actively parry with her shortsword.
Here is a bigger combat style example
The files here contain close to 100 combat styles described as above. The material is scourged from AIG, Monster Island, Mythras, Monster Island and my own campaign.

Combat Styles Combine And Go Encyclopaedic
Combat Style Cards have been gathered into a single Encyclopaedia that is now 830 pages long. The Encyclopaedia contains Combat Style Traits and all the new indices in a single volume.  Combat Style is a combination of weapons that a culture or organisation trains to be effectively used together. Combat Style usually include one or much more rarely more than one Combat Style Traits. Combat Style Cards are quick reference cards which show examples of such styles together with weapon statistics and how this combination of weapons interacts with Combat Special Effects. At the start of this document there are indices showing what styles are used in what areas and what organisations etc. Pick a combat style from these for your character or NPC and use this as a quick reference during the game. There is a table of content by area and table of contents is clickable so one can easily reach the combat style wanted.  This encyclopaedia contains following parts
  • table of contents for encyclopedia
  • combat style traits list
  • Combat style indices to browse by different ways for inspiration 
    • Styles by kind
    • Combat Style Traits by kind and combat styles used
    • Combat Style Traits by area and combat styles used
    • Weapons and Areas and Combat Styles where they are used
    • Combat style traits and combat styles which use them
    • Combat styles by kind and area
  • Areas and their combat style cards
These will now update always together and you will know the latest version by the date in the cover.  Separate combat style card files in the folders will be phased out.
