This page contains a variety of supporting resources for Mythras that are free for download.

Mythras Imperative

Mythras Imperative is a free to download, pared down version of the full Mythras rules. We provide it so that Games Masters and potential players can give try the core mechanics, without having to purchase the entire ruleset in advance. Whilst we pack in a lot of material into a few dozen pages, this is only a simplified overview of a far more comprehensive system - one which comes from a long tradition of roleplaying game based around using percentile dice (d100 or d%) to resolve most activities. Mythras is the most recent incarnation of a long line of similar games, descended from the venerable, yet still very well regarded RuneQuest and Basic Roleplaying.

The core rules are straightforward and intuitive; usually, a player rolls d100 and aims to score equal to, or less than, a value (a skill or passion, for instance) on his or her character sheet that represents a certain chance of success. However, the game includes many rules that add greater depth, modify results or enhance the play experience. While most can be considered necessary for play, none are essential. Indeed, if you do not like a rule, find it confusing, or find it slows things down, feel free to ignore it completely!

Thennla Sourcebook

Thennla is a fantasy setting for the Mythras game system. Encircled by the Outer Ocean, watched by the God of the Sun and the Goddess of the Moon, Thennla's continents reveal themselves. The jungles of Jandekot; the vast deserts of Rasputana; and there, in the east, the Moon Goddess Jekkara anchored over it, is Taygus, land of plains and hills, the great inland sea and teeming civilisations. Here empires are born: Korantia, fading now, but defiant, its city-states each a goddess incarnate; the Jekkarenes, oldest of all civilisations, and blessed by the Moon Goddess; and now the Taskan Empire, overturning centuries of tradition with new ideas, ruled by a god-emperor and his avatar, the Iron Simulacrum. And watching closely is Assabia, a land of cruel rites and cunning sorcerers.

The Thennla sourcebook is a free resource for Mythras. A campaign world that is open for exploration and adventure. It includes an overview of the world, centering on Taygus, and describes the magic of the place, and how to create Thennlan characters. More information is given in the supplements Shores of Korantia and The Taskan Empire, but this is an ideal introduction for Games Masters and players who want a magic-rich world of high adventure, with the flavours of classical Greece, Rome, Persia and Byzantium. The Thennla sourcebook will get you started and wanting to learning more. It will inspire you to create your own adventures and develop the cultures outline in its pages.

If you already have Shores of Korantia or The Taskan Empire, this booklet is not essential, although it may prove a useful gazeteer for players.
