Mythos 0.2

Mythos: The Dramatic Role-playing Game. Image from FFG's Gates of Arkham By and by I will be presenting the role-playing system I use in my games. A role-playing/storytelling system The system is relatively simple and is inspired by The Window , D6 and Risus . It only uses six-sided dice. A skill or trait are ranked in levels and they range from 1-7+. 1              Poor 2              Below Average 3              Average, Mediocre 3+            Competent 4              Above Average, Skilled, Good 4+ 5              Excellent, Very Good 5+ 6              Superb, Remarkable, Master 6+ 7              Grandmaster, Incredible 7+            Unbelievable Most humans have attribute/traits on a scale of 1-5. It matches the convention of rating something on a 1 to 5 scale. Thus, 1 is poor, 2 is below average, 3 is average, 4 is good or above average, while 5 is very good. Values of 6 and 7 are there to represent characters who are significantly above the n

Making a Dice Tray version 2.0

So the previous dice tray worked well, but an unfortunate incident involving mould consigned it to the trash bin. Setting out to make a second one I decided I wanted a deeper tray as well as something more square in shape. The depth especially since while the previous one was adequate for small 12mm d6s, bigger dice have a tendency to careen out of the tray, especially in times of excitement (which is often in my games). This time I used a deep photo frame, a 25cm square Ribba . It is about 4cm deep and only 9.90SGD at the local Ikea. Again I used a cork sheet bought from Artfriend sandwiched where the photo would be and viola. Yet another photo dice tray, this time a deep one. Admittedly somewhat large but nice and deep. Great if you need to roll lots of dice. Total investment this amounts to less than $12. Pretty neat, I like it!
