Why I chose Mythras…
I quite like change. When I am enjoying something I often think that I am never ever going to stop doing it, but there always comes a time when things either become too much to keep going or something else tempts me away and I no longer have the time for something. I’ve written before about my class envy and this often does happen with games as well. The most important thing about any game for me is the concept and rules, rather than its popularity or great reports. Even when I am streaming, I tend not to hop onto new games or ‘popular’ games just for the sake of playing them since I know that I am not really going to enjoy them or be any good at them. RPGs (Role Playing Games) are the same. I tend to like concepts and rule systems rather than the current popular or new games. With this in mind, you might have noticed that I am no longer streaming D&D 5th edition on a Saturday evening, in favour of Mythras. So, in order to prevent any rumours spreading about the reason behind this, I thought I would let you know in a waffle why I had chosen to play more Mythras.
You might have read about my experience with D&D and how long I’ve actually been involved in DMing and, to some extent, playing the game. When I started to read and play 5th edition D&D I was impressed with the changes that they had made and how well these impacted on the game. The campaign was going well with six people playing every week and hopefully enjoying it. However, I started to become aware that D&D hadn’t really changed that much and I needed a new challenge in order to continue to play and so I switched to Mythras (Runequest). Why – well here are three of the reasons – why three, because that’s the format of these waffles!
I don’t remember the full version, but please add it to the comments if you know it completely
There are other reasons why I switched to Mythras as my fantasy game some of which I might talk about in another waffle, but these are my initial favourite three. I will definitely return to D&D, probably for some one offs, when I create the characters and invite people to play. But for the forseeable future, I want to really invest in the Mythras rule system and develop my new campaign world. Hopefully you will enjoy it just as much as the D&D campaign and come along and see the group attempting to survive and progress and … perhaps the most important aspect of any game … have fun.
