Mythras Encounter Generator reached a boundary of 2500 Encounter Templates today. It is quite a ride since August 2013 when I first learned of the RQ Encounter Generator and started to contribute to it.
Here are few of the new ones I created during this weekend.
Animals for Glorantha or other places
Undead and demonic beings
Here are some old posts to get the best out of the encounter generator
Here is a set of missing creatures for Mythras Encounter Generator based on Anaxial’s Roster. These can be somewhat rare – or even extremely rare. Some of them even the stronger parties would probably not like to encounter.
The daimons and elemental spirits are inspired by both the Anaxial’s Roster and Nikk Effingham’s excellent post on elementals
There exists about 40 Luathan warriors in the Genertela continent – here is one of them, one of the less skilled ones.
Here are some trophies to gather or protect based on your parties’ instincts.
Grazer’s horses are legendary. If you manage to get one – most likely others will want it from you.
After a brief break here are a few additions to Encounter Generator to help Mythras and RQ6 referees create new NPC’s and other encounters.
The world of RQ/Mythras Encounter Generator moved to another site last year. Start of February was the last time when the links on my blog posts (more than 50 posts with possibly hundreds or small thousands of links) to the encounter generator and templates were working. You can find most if not all RQ Encounter Generator posts on the category of the same name. Now all the links have been updated due to diligent work of the Mostali and World Machine is again repaired.
So click away – if there are still some that do not work let me know. Here are few of the pages for encounters.
In the hunt for the perfect GM reference material and GM Screen I created reference sheet for spell caster for Magic Situational Modifiers. This gathers all the modifiers for all the forms of Magic into one place. Some of the modifiers are optional – for example wearing armor iron in Glorantha, Monster Island options for orchestrated casting and sympathetic armor.
As always comments are welcome. The file is available here and of course also in the RQ6/Mythras charts page which collects all the charts I have made available (Combat flow, offensive and defensive special effects, healing and wounds, diminish effects, weapons, shields and passive blocking, close and ranged combat situational modifiers, movement and swimming effects, encumbrance calculator, sorcery tools and Gloranthan ships).
GM’s might also find the RQ/Mythras Encounter Generator useful
Sorcery tool described here has been updated based on user feedback.
The new version of the tool (1.1) contains both the standard durations for spells and the optional long durations. You select as per your GM’s choice using the campaing duration rules field.
The unenchanted iron version is a house rule that is now explained.
The new version can be downloaded from the same location than before in Sorcery Tool for Mythras (and friends like RQ6).
There are other charts available for RQ6 and Mythras here. RQ and Mythras Encounter generator is found here
Gods War in Glorantha kickstarter is ongoing at the moment. Gods War seems to be the pure Sandy – large monsters (I mean really large) at really cosmic scale – great production quality and humongous replay value with 7 different empires, maybe soon 8. This has bigger figures even than Cthulhu Wars and loads of variety. You will see Mother of Monsters, Dragonewts, Lunars, Broos, Storm Tribe, Dragons and Sea monsters among others. Giants and Titans seem to be possible as well if kickstarter reaches its goals. The Gods War is funded already – now it is only the race to get all the stretch goals. The only downside to the game (in addition to investment to pledge) I see is that with so much stuff included it will eat up plenty of game shelf space. It seems that figures could also be used as miniatures in your campaign – Mother of Monsters, I am looking at you as a distinct possibility. The stretch goals of which there are plenty look to be available only via the Kickstarter campaign, basic game will likely come to retailers later on.
If you have not bought yet the Guide To Glorantha and several other ancient tomes in PDF format there is a pledge here that contains a veritable pirates treasure of those.
There are still stretch goals that would be interesting to get – so go and pledge.
