    A stupid Mythras Combat question

    I think it depends how the GM wants to play it. If you have multiple people trying to Evade an offensive spell, and they're hoping to take advantage of one evader's >100 Evade, I might well impose a penalty to the Evader (because trying to assist a bunch of people is going to compromise your...

    A stupid Mythras Combat question

    Either you're faced with resolving each resistance roll separately, or you need to use one of the group test rolls as outlined in core Mythras. In edge cases where you have many on one side, GMs are going to have to use their best judgement. But in one-on-one cases, the >100% rule for opposed...

    Can anyone explain Runequest to me?

    Wasn't there also a Corum game back in the 90's? Or was that just a Hawkmoon supplement? Corum was an Elric! supplement rather than Hawkmoon, and published by Darcsyde, a small Australian company established for this very purpose by Liam Routt. There are copies of it still available on eBay.
