Lloyd Dupont Posted November 25, 2021 Report Share Posted November 25, 2021 (edited) After trying a bit of both I realised there are subtle incompatibilities between the 2 rulesets. For example Mythras damage tables work much better with hit location hit point, but using BRP damage tables with location hit point was not a very good experience, at least for me. Also luck in Mythras is much better, a few point with big impact. Not 60 points that one could milk endlessly to never miss their 90% skill. Also, after brainstorming about magic for a while I finally realised that Mythras version of Classic Fantasy (not the earlier BRP version) is exactly what I was looking for all along!! 😅 The class concept there is also fantastic and very open... Gotta create many original classes in my master of Orion setting, like merchant Prince or Diva! Now, before I swing back into the Mythras camp, there are 2 issues that I had with Mythras mechanics I want to brainstorm a bit with you guys. First, and it pains me to say because it looks good on paper, is a basic combat rule that is used successfully by many, but action points was a bit of a slog with my group.. Particularly with bonus defensive action from CF, we got color tokens on the table and... It was not smooth. I could go for BRP combat flow (1 action any number of reaction with cumulative malus) which was a great success. But fighters would be losing out in offensive potential here.. Never mind, got an idea, gotta introduce multi attack for chosen monsters and fighters.... The second issue is more tricky. It's about saves. In BRP one use the resistance table, whereas in Mythras one do opposed skill check. I don't mind a bit of skill here, but I prefer the resistance table. But in Mythras POW almost never change, so the resistance table will be endlessly frustrating for the player. And I also like characteristics that do not change much... Basically I'm conflicted here and will take any ideas! 😏 Edited November 25, 2021 by Lloyd Dupont Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
