Here are some charts that I made that have been useful for my Mythras (former editions known as RQ6) campaign. All the relevant ones have been updated for Mythras 3rd printing (2018 Nov). The screen shots are still of the old versions.
This has been updated with the links to most recent resources as of May 2022.
|Area||Name and latest link to chart||Comment||More info|
|Mythras Core Rulebook Extended Table of Contents||Extended Table of Contents||Here is for all new (and perhaps also old) Mythras Gamesmasters a very extended version of Mythras Core Rulebook Table of Contents as a pdf. It could be useful when trying to find a rule. You will need a version of the Core Rulebook as all the page numbers refer to that (except the ones on the very first page, which are page numbers for this Table of Contents). The additions at the end from Examples entry forward could also be used separately. |
It contains table of contents that contains all the chapter headings from the Core Rulebook. Within the main table of contents all the optional rules are marked with italics
It also has few additional items with few examples below.
-All the examples of the book gathered into separate table of contents
-All the non human character creations as a separate table of contents
– All the grey boxes (notes) as a separate table of contents
– All the tables as a separate table of contents
-All the optional rules as a separate table of contents
The main GM Design Choices as a table of contents. This is a list that GM could use which rules components to define/refine when designing their world.
It also has a lists section which has a list plus page reference for list entries for each list in the book.
-Close combat mechanics
-Folk Magic Spells
-Spirit Combat Special Effects
It also has index pages for rules that are commonly used nearby each other or related to each other
– Healing, Wounds and Fatigue
– Movement and Combat
At the end is a page for rules and if there are any tools for that in my charts and tables.

It makes it much easier to see all the effects that encumbrance, terrain and fatigue make. The aim here is to make movement speed also count – when escaping One-Eye the Carnosaur you do not have to be the fastest but faster than 2-4 of the slowest ones. You should also be make the hard decisions what to drop to escape easily from game mechanics point of view.
The encumbrance and fatigue can make drastic changes to the speed and skills. This tool aims to help the use of them to support the game session.
|Movement||Movement and Swimming Effects||It contains now a table for movement rates between 1 and 14, effect of athletics on the speed when walking, running or sprinting. |
It also has a table for the common modifiers for movement like encumbrance, armor and fatigue. It has also the effects on ranged combat.

Here we have a quick reference chart for criticals and difficulty grade on skill. If you like maths – you do not need the chart, the calculations are simple but I find doing them in the heat of the game distracting.

Thank you for your work!
Small side note: In the eastern weapons pdf, I think the narrow space modifier for the Yari managed to slip one row to the Wakizashi (spelled Wakazashi in the table) 🙂
