Mythos 0.2

Mythos: The Dramatic Role-playing Game.

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
5              Excellent, Very Good
6              Superb, Remarkable, Master
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 norm and while rare you do come across characters with 6 in some trai…

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!
