Note: The directory based combat style cards have been replaced by Combat Style Card Encyclopaedia
Combat styles, combat style traits, weapon traits and special effects are key parts of what makes Mythras so interesting in combat. I decided to make a player aid for my campaign that contains the key information for players about combat style they have chosen.
Combat style card contains the name and combat style traits of the style with an explanation what the trait provides.
Each of the combat styles contains usually several weapons. Most of the special effects that player can choose are the same for each of the weapons. So I gathered the common special effects within the combat style’s weapons to the top of the page.
For each of the weapons the key details of the weapon are shown plus the possible weapon traits.
Underneath the basic information there are only those special effects specific to that weapon.
So how would player use this:
Let’s say she knows the combat style Gladiator – see in the Close Combat Encyclopaedia – section Styles for Standard – Gladiator. Easy to navigate there by opening the pdf link above and searching for Gladiator and clicking on the page number.
She has succeeded in the attack so she now has options
- choose any of the items in the common block underneath the combat style – any from Close Range to Trip Opponent.
- decide to use her Shortsword’s Impale or Bleed
- use her Buckler’s Bash or Stun Location special effect.
When it is her turn to defend she can
- use her Daredevil trait to evade blows without ending up prone or
- she can passively block with her Buckler 2 locations or
- she could actively parry with either her buckler or
- she could actively parry with her shortsword.
Here is a bigger combat style example
The files here contain close to 100 combat styles described as above. The material is scourged from AIG, Monster Island, Mythras, Monster Island and my own campaign.
