|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 1.5 contains in the order of 40 new rulings. – the new supplements added are Mythic Babylon and Classic Fantasy. |
There are now more than 260 rules which have options that you can select – some with multiple options. The file is here. Strong suggestion is to download it and open it with relatively new version of Excel, it might work with Google Sheets as well.
The new interface introduced in the previous version is shown here.
By default Mythras can be very simple. Here is a suggested default options list for a starting game.
Martin Helsdon’s incredible work on Armies and Enemies of Dragon Pass is a worthy read for any Gloranthaphile. It is also worthy read for anyone thinking of creating a consistent, rich and detailed army structure for a fantasy campaign.
Martin has kindly given me permission to create combat styles based on his tome.
The combat styles will give a glimpse but only a partial tactical glimpse of the armies combat styles. For further study I heartily recommend diving into the Armies And Enemies of Dragon Pass to dig into the background of the army and the units involved, armor and so on. The book is also very nicely illustrated in black and white with useful pictures of weapons, shields and armor. The book will also give you rich background for equipping your own units for miniature or other tabletop games as well as it paints a tapestry of military background for your characters in RPGs if they have chosen that career path.
It will also give you a chance to build your local Lunar presence more detailed and will make the rich variety of Lunar army visible in your game.
You will find the Lunars in the Combat Style Encyclopaedia. So what are Combat Styles and what is the Combat Style Encyclopedia, check it out here. Combat Style Cards have been gathered into a single Encyclopaedia that is now
830 1032 pages long. There are now almost 720 Combat Styles and almost 120 Combat Style Traits in the Encyclopaedia.
This first update will concentrate on the conquerors (or liberators depending on the point of view, there are other points of views as well).
