Mythras Imperative Now Available

Re: Mythras Imperative Now Available

I am very pleased that Mythras Imperative is simpler and has less page count and content than RQ Essentials. This could encourage newcomers to give it a try, thank you for that! However it seems to me that Imperative lacks the rules for disengaging from combat if someone is fighting with one opponent. There are only Outmanoeuvre(which is only valid when engaged with more than one opponent) or Withdraw Special Effect(which is kind of a side effect of exceptionally good defense). But what if someone'd like to disengage and run for his life on his turn? There was an option to do this with "Change range" action, but there is no such action in Imperative. So maybe it would be better to rephrase Outmanoeuvre action or add some light version of Change range action or even introduce Withdraw action in Imperative? Some guideline on how to escape from combat early would be good IMHO.

This is one of those simplifications that MI has, it seems to me. There has to be a cutoff somewhere, and those rules didn't make the cut, apparently. This is fully detailed in the big rule book.

I can now happily confirm that yes, all our existing supplements will be rebadged with the Mythras logo.

This is already in progress for our PDFs and POD titles, but will extend to our print books too. Obviously the RuneQuest 6 core rules will be completely replaced with Mythras, but our existing stock will be rebadged on their covers with the Mythras logo and will continue to remain available.

That's great to hear. I look forward to spending a large sum of money on a pile of Mythras hardcovers.

I just got a hard copy of Mythras Imperative, and RQ Essentials from Lulu. I didn't appreciate how meaty RQE is in hardcopy. I did some image enhancement with some alpha software from Tyrell, I was able to find the front view of the sorceress on the Mythras Imperative cover (she was reflected in the eye of the cyclops) ...

Lulu.com currently has a 25% off coupon code, LULU25, in case anyone wanted a hard copy of Mythras Imperative. I ordered a copy last week and am waiting for it to arrive.

Errata for the Mythras Imperative PDF: On page 8 (PDF reader p. 9) under Standard Skills, the skill entry and description for Deceit is missing.

There is mention of Dodge skill in Characters on page 9 but most of the rest of the rules talk about Evade.
