How to setup Mythras optional rules for your campaign - NOMCORSS

Recommended Posts

Mythras can be considered as a very flexible toolkit for setting up your campaign. This gives enormous power to shape the campaign rules to fit the campaign content and mood. It also gives new GMs a question: Which options I need to setup and how do I communicate which rules are in effect.
 
To answer this question there is a new tool NOMCORSS (NotesFromPavis Opinionated Mythras Campaign Optional Rule Setup Sheet). It is an excel sheet which gives the GM a worksheet to select which optional rules are in effect in his/her particular campaign. The first version is for before firepower age campaigns and should contain all RAW options and some popular house rules and setting rules that you can select for your campaign. 
 
Here is an example of opinionated setup for campaign tools.

NOMCORSS Mythras Campaign Rules Setup Tool goes Lyonesse, Perceforest and Mythic Britain

 
Mythras system is truly a toolkit. NOMCORSS (NotesFromPavis Opinionated Mythras Campaign Optional Rule Setup Sheet) tries to gather together all the Mythras rules options from all of the Mythras supplements with sensible (perhaps opinionated) default options. Version 1.3 contains now almost 200 (well 194) rule selection one can do – the new supplements added are Lyonesse,Mythic Britain,Mythic Britain,Perceforest Logres,Waterlands,Perceforest. 
There are now very many tool selections that you can do. Excel filters will be your friend – filter by category, perhaps then by topic. Remember all the edits are done on the first (Main) sheet (do not sort there). All the sorting should be done on Display sheet. 
It is an excel sheet which gives the GM a worksheet to select which optional rules are in effect in his/her particular campaign. Excel is starting to be somewhat unwieldy and will need to be refactored. 
You need to have own the various supplements it refers to if you want to use the rules mentioned here (every rule option reference points to the supplement and page).

To help you select here are a few tips and an additional feature. First – select which of the magic systems you want to use. They are the rows marked with orange ones. If you select one or couple of them (by selecting from the green column any choice that is not “No” and not starting with “Standard RAW” – all the choices for any magic system rule choices will be marked “Optional Magic System Chosen”. 
 
Now start selecting any of these “Optional Magic System Chosen” rules. There again if you select an option that is not “No” and not starting with “Standard RAW” the column named “Was there any optional rule chosen (rules that are standard in RAW count as False)” will be automatically marked True.

On the display sheet – there is also a column “Was there any optional rule chosen (rules that are standard in RAW count as False)” Filter by using standard Excel filtering (in Excel the title of the column will contain dropdown” and select “True”. This will now show all the selected optional rules.
