Mythras/Lyonesse: Coddefut's Stipule, Now Available!


Recommended Posts

The Design Mechanism is delighted to bring you our inaugural release for Lyonesse: 'Coddefut's Stipule'. This self-contained scenario introduces you to the Elder Isles, and concerns the distressing disappearance of fishermen while plying their trade off Dahaut's eastern coast. Press-ganged by a peevish burghermeister, the pre-generated characters must sail out to the disused tower of Coddefut the Magician to investigate. It may not end well; and for some, it may not end at all.

Fully playable with the Mythras rules, 'Coddefut's Stipule' contains 6 pre-generated characters representing the kinds of personalities encountered in Jack Vance's Lyonesse stories: a preening nobleman; a wily trickster; a cunning thief; a feisty huntress; a weary hedge witch; and a priest who may not be all he seems. But that is not all: special rules taken from the Lyonesse RPG (due in 2020) help everyone bring the flavour (quite literally: food figures highly in the scenario) of a Vancian story to the gaming table. A little taste of the magic system is also on offer, with two of the characters possessing fairy cantraps.

So, for the modest sum of $9.99 for the POD & PDF (or $4.99 if you wish to avoid the death of trees), you can take your first steps into the marvellously irreverent world of Jack Vance's Lyonesse saga. Available from DrivethruRPG and The Design Mechanism store at the below links:

The adventure really seems like it'll be fun to play. Also, kudos on the cantrap names, you nailed the Vancian aesthetics perfectly!

Thank you Nick.

There's over a hundred fairy cantraps (sic) in the full game , including Lugwiler's Dismal Itch, Pamenne's Loose Reception, and (my favourite) Kleese's Broad Bass. Sandestin magic is no less inventive, and can be quite extraordinarily powerful in the wrong hands.
