Mythic Britain (Mythras RPG)
« on: January 16, 2017, 08:35:18 PM »

So, my beloved Torg is not so much around here, but what are folks interested in playing?  I've got a hankering for Dark Ages Britain or some Traveller-esque Scifi.  Any interest?

You shall have it! And it shall be Dark and Agey.  I'm gonna use Mythras (formerly RuneQuest 6) Mythic Britain setting (think Bernard Cornwell/"historical" King Arthur but with everyone covered in shit).  There's a set of rules here with everything but setting and magic.

Yeah, so in terms of character setup:

  • Choose culture: Celt or Saxon (I'm open to something funky too if it's cool)
  • Choose homeland or tribe
  • Choose religion (theme in the game is Druidism/the old gods vs ascendant Christianity
  • Choose skills
  • Choose passions
  • Background etc

As for playing a Saxon, from the book:

A Saxon Amongst the Celts

Both   the   Celts   and   Saxons   undoubtedly   took   prisoners  who  were  made  into  slaves.  Given  time,  these  slaves  may  prove  themselves  through  work  and  loyalty  to  their  new  masters  and  so  gain  their  freedom  and  the  chance  to  live  as  equals  (more  or  less)  in  a  new  culture.  Players  can  choose  to  be  of  Saxon origin, raised in, and loyal to, their new Celtic tribe – or vice-versa. In such a case, the player creates the character according to the new, adopted culture, but  also  gains  the  language  of  their  old  culture  and  the  Passion  Loyalty  (Saxon  or  Celt)  at  two  thirds  of  the  Loyalty  to  Community  score.  The  character  is  considered  to  have  spent  a  considerable  amount  of  time with their adoptive culture, learned their ways and language, and adopted their loyalties. However, if they have the opportunity to re-join their original culture, then it could make for an interesting moral and cultural struggle.

Go on then. I'm pretty busy at the moment with work and moving house though so I won't be mega prolific I'm afraid.

I'm thinking leisurely pace -- 2 posts a week maybe, now that we are old and respectable.  I'll get a board up today.  Thank you for the pity, Bob and Colonel! :)
