Lawrence Whitaker and Pete Nash of The Design Mechanism originally published their rules set as RuneQuest 6, one of the best editions of this classic game; we presented it in February 2014 and again in December 2014. In July 2016, after the RQ license lapsed, Design Mechanism rebranded the game as Mythras. The renamed and updated Mythras core rulebook has new interior artwork and layout, along with some new Special Effects, small tweaks to the rules, and Spirit Combat Effects — though if you bought the original RQ6 rulebook, you don’t need this rebranded version.
Today Mythras enjoys a wide range of supplements and adventures featuring swords and sorcery, history and myth, science fiction and urban horror. (Last week The Design Mechanism announced a new license to adapt Jack Vance’s Lyonesse trilogy as a new standalone RPG based on Mythras.) This bargain-priced collection covers everything from classic dungeon-crawling fantasy to mythic history to science fiction.
