Elthos RPG Mythos Machine Update

Latest news... I am adding a new tier to the Mythos Machine. "Marketplace GM" ... this tier allows you to use many but not all of the features of the Mythos Machine to run games purchased from the World's Marketplace. You can play them as you wish, but you will not be able to edit the objects in the World, such as the weapons, armors, equipment, spells, races, classes etc, nor add to them. The purchased Worlds can only be used as-is in that regard. On the other hand you will be able to add new places, campaigns, adventures, and events to the purchased Worlds. For GMs who are just getting their feet wet with the Elthos RPG and Mythos Machine it is a great option. And that tier is free to join, though you do need to purchase the other GM's worlds at the price they set from the World's Marketplace. Once purchased you get a copy of that world in the Mythos Machine to use as your own.

I completed the first pass on the programming last night and plan to test tonight. I think I nailed everything, but testing will prove or disprove that. Hopefully I can get it into production in the next day or two. :)

Guys, I really need some feedback for this document. So it lists all of the updated schools from the first edition book of Kaigaku, plus the lesser clan material created by Kickstarter backers.

I'm happy with how streamlined things seem to be with this new system, BUT I have a choice to make and I want your input. A lot of this is from the Retheming Schools header (highlighted in blue in the document).

As I write up these abilities I find that I think a lot of what's in them should be available to most characters. Like in the first edition the Silver Tanuki ninja school is presented as the only one that's adept at disguises. That's not realistic, and a lot of it came from my wanting to make the game a "tribute" to L5R, where one school is usually the best or only dojo to teach a given technique.

In the Retheming Schools section of this document I put out an alternative method, where all regular techniques are common enough across the empire that a student can find a master to teach them what they need to know.

Of course, a clan's "secret knowledge" is a big part of samurai/martial arts history and fiction, so what I'm thinking is that Masteries are exclusive to factions.

Masteries are the powerful fourth ability that you gain on taking your third rank in a technique. What I'm thinking of doing, is instead of tying Masteries to a specific ability, like they are now, is giving each clan plus ronin access to one or more exclusive Masteries for each Flavor. So if you're a Morimoto bushi and you take three Bushi abilities, you get the Morimoto Clan Bushi Mastery ability. A ronin bushi who takes the same Bushi Flavor abilities as the Morimoto samurai would get a different Mastery.

Please let me know what you think.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #85, including every tabletop project started between 09/10 till 09/25.

Given I had to take a week long break, I present more than 72 fresh tabletop rpg crowdfunding projects. Including quite some from Germany, France and Spain.
I did back the German translation of *Itras By*, do feel tempted by HANDBÜCHER DES DRACHEN II, and the french games MACCHABÉES and MANTRA : ONIROPUNK caught my attention, as did *Longue-Ville* a richly illustrated book presenting a setting that could  fit a game.
Safe from this little excursion in different languages there are many, great English projects and games. Thus if you liked Watership Down, you might be happy that *Bunnies and Burrows* is aiming to fund its third edition. Alternatively you could take a look at *Rodent Rangers*, which aims to be kid friendly. If you like to play more bunnies, other animals or even humans, take a look at *The Forest Hymn & Picnic*. Which features a system created by the designer of Shadow of the Demon Lord.
If you wonder how Italians would imagine a fantastic Italy based on Rome, checkout *Lex Arcana*. Next to the aforementioned quirk it looks cool and reads solid. Things from the Flood is a continuation to Tales of the Loop and has the characters discover mysteries, aliens and corporate misshieve in the 90ties. Just like Tales it features art by Stålenhag. *Return to the Stars* makes a jump forward and offers optimistic Science Fiction running on Fate Core. Going back Castle and Crusaders as well as The Epic of Dreams do give you your fantasy kick. C&C in more traditional fashion, the Dreams in a more story game way. Alternatively you might rob the sea with North Sea Epilogues or have fun with yourself and Avalon's Solo Adventure system.
There are many, many more interesting projects and trying to list them would likely bore you, thus just take a look:
