Mythras Encounter Tool – feature recap for busy GMs

Mythras Encounter Generator (formerly known as RQ6 Encounter Generator) (the creation of skoll (his nickname in thedesignmechanism forums)) has grown lately to have quite a bit of new features and content. Content is crowd sourced.

So for the hard working GM’s there is now an easy way to generate many types of enemies. You need a herd of allosaurs – click, select number press generate and unleash doom. The characters finished them off – need a bigger reserve herd – click a number and generate again. Other beasts got attracted to the noise – perhaps a tyrannosaur – click a number and generate again.

Endless supply of Lunar more what you need – pick from the list – generate again. In units nicely formed of up to 40 individuals – they will march to restore peace and order in the name of the Moon again.

Town guards noticed your character’s getaway from the second story job – click a number and generate.

Serpent People to fill your jungle with silent death – select from the list.

More than 1400 templates (more than 1700 in Feb 2015, more than than 1840 in April 2015) have already been created for Gloranthan, Monster Island, General Fantasy settings by the users of the system covering most of the monsters in RQ6, Monster Island, Anaxial’s Roster and Anaxial Annex and many more.

Need a new kind of enemy – use the templates from existing races and templates, modify to your heart’s content and create away. http://skoll.xyz/mythras_eg/instructions/ You can add features to your template by selecting from over 100 categories ranging from abilities and  combat styles to disguises.

Most of the Gloranthan cults have templates from initiate to a priest (more than 450 cult templates). You can search for them by name in the enemies tab or by name and cult rank in the home page. The cults are created according to Gloranthan Cult One-pagers while we wait for the Adventures in Glorantha.

You can create parties that contain variety of enemies.  Here are a few for an example.

Your own parties can have party features ranging from mission and fatigue status to sartar tribe names.

If you are in a hurry you can go to party (or enemy) page, filter the results and press “Do you feel lucky”.

The generated enemies names and note fields can be modified and saved either as pdf or web page to save your favorite enemy stats.

You can save your favorite enemies to your home page.

If you would like to encounter something you might not see every day filter your party page by “Off the beaten path”

Gloranthan Cult Onepagers – Main page

There is renewed Gloranthan cult Onepagers page here.

Gloranthan Cult Onepagers are one page summary of skills, folk magic and theist miracles / rune spells for most Gloranthan cults – list now contains 140+ cults or major sub cults (7 Mothers, Aldrya) with their own one pager.

For each cult or spirit society source is mentioned for the spell,miracle / rune spell or skill that is not found in current RQ6 rules.  Criteria for initiate, acolyte and rune status is mentioned as well.

There are two varieties :

The latter can be used as easily as the former – the newer (AiG) one will be updated frequently – the older one not any more.

For the spells and the description of the cults you will need to dive into Cult Compendium, Gods of Glorantha and Shadows in the Borderlands – at least.

The links to sources of the spells is on the tools directory.

The links to original books are mentioned for the cults, you will need those books for detailed description of the cult, skills and spells. Many of the books and magazines are out of print but Moon Design Publications has a few and some others you may find thru drivethrurpg.com, Amazon or eBay.

All of this will be superseded by the official rules once Chaosium Glorantha is out.

Cults available are grouped in the link underneath roughly by ‘pantheon’

All of the above will likely change during my campaign and has gone thru just initial tuning.

For spell conversions take a look at gloranthaphiles more detailed conversion.

AIG version

This is the one that contains the latest and greatest updates.

RQ6 RAW version (not being updated any more)

The cult files for RQ6 RAW version are here.  Tools and charts are here

Zip file of all cult files for RQ6 RAW is now available (not being updated anymore) PDF file of all cult files is now available by popular request.

Here is a small quick reference list that I created for finding where all the spells that are not defined in RQ6 are defined in various Gloranthan sources.
