WIP on Mythos version 0.3

Image
After two more games of Mythos I am re-thinking some of the rules both in terms of how they are presented to the players and a slight tweak of the mechanic.

If the basic assumption in Mythos is that an average guy is Average (3), then instead of writing, he is an average swordsman (3) we could just drop the number. It would be understood that if he attempted sword fighting, he would roll 3 dice, most of the time. We would then use a system of indicating how much better or worse a person is at a particular characteristic/skill/ability by using positive or negative modifiers, e.g. Good Swordsman (+1) or Very Good Swordsman (+2). Cognitively, for both the GM and player when attempting a resolution, you would typically go for 3 dice, unless something about your character indicates otherwise.


Here are the Difficulty levels as they currently stand:

2   Easy, Routine
3   Challenging, Moderate
5   Hard, Difficult
7   Very Hard, Very Difficult
9   Extremely Difficult
11 Heroic
13 Epic

The Dark Eye Narrative Report from ITE Campus Gamefest

Image
On 25th June, Chris ran a The Dark Eye role-playing game at the SOG Mega-gaming event, part of the annual Campus Gamefest at ITE@AMK.

In his own words:
This past weekend at ITE Campus Game Fest, we have played a role-playing one-shot using the Dark Eye system. Our setting is the world of Aventuria, a classic medieval fantasy environment.
We will be starting a regular group as well as do further one-off sessions using the Dark Eye setting and ruleset. If you'd like to join or host a session yourself, please contact Chris Hennigfeld or let us know in the comments!

In this session we had four players hosted by Chris as GM, playing a scenario called "The Temple of Ssrr'Khem'Nazz". Below is the writeup from one of the player characters' perspective.
Expedition into the swamps of Selem
Day 1: We begin our quest to find the ancient lizard artifact at the bequest of Retha of Grangor. Joining the group are: Ahmad Kashutar, young member of the ruling Old Families of Selem …

Announcing the Singapore X-Wing Miniatures League 2016!

Image
We are happy to announce our very first Singapore X-Wing Miniatures League!

The league will be complementary to the regional and national level FFG organised play competitions, and another path for players to partake of the X-Wing Miniatures Game experience.

For the 2016 season instead of a round-robin format we will run a series of tournaments. The accumulated VPs will determine ranking.

The 2016 season begins with the POMO Tourney on 16th January 2016 and will be followed by the Bespin tourney on the 28th February 2016.

We will run a few more tourneys in March and April, cumulating in a top 4 elimination round in May, to determine the league champion.



Furthermore the top 4 ranked members of the league will receive an invitation to compete in the Singapore X-Wing Open Championship 2016 expected to be held sometime in June, with registration fees waived and first round Bye.

We will have a league champion trophy plus attractive prizes that league members can win. More details on this w…
