Take a moment to check out the picture above. That's what I got in the last Mythoard. Go ahead. Touch the picture. Make it bigger. It won't hurt.
So Mythoard, you wonderful bastard. This month was fantastic, a round of applause for +Jarrod Shaw and his clan that work so hard getting these boxes out to all of us. Bravo.
You know its going to be a fantastic hoard when there is shit on the outside of the box! Yes there was.
The first product I spied with my little eye was The Dungeon of the Demon Strata by +Chris Tregenza of +6d6. What a cool book. I will admit it will take me some time to get the gist of this way of playing. I read through it a couple times, but would love to see it run in an actual game. Despite that, the dungeon itself is an interesting concept and I love the layout of it. There are a few elements, especially the easy, medium and hard tasks setup.
The small items inside were two, plastic silhouette miniatures. A discount code for Big Damn Dryden, a big d12 hit location die!! (I love getting dice no matter what they are or if I have one, possible two...okay I have three of them now), and the final insert is Robot Uprising by +James Spahn who also had another product in this month's box.
Did I just say James Spahn, the man takes pleasure in taunting me, but I do not let that color my opinion of him or his products. Included was a softback copy of White Star, probably the hottest new(ish) game system in the past year or so. I bought the PDF a while back and now I am playing in a Friday night game over at +Erik Tenkar's, so its good to have a copy to flip through.
Let me demonstrate the value of Mythoard with this example. To get the softcover of White Star on RPGNow is $19.99 that does not include shipping. And White Star is very much worth it. But I got a copy in Mythoard that the subscription is only $25 a month. So hell yeah it's worth every penny.
The First Sentinel by Edwin Nagy for the +Lesser Gnome crew headed by +Zach Glazar. Lesser Gnome products are always fantastic quality. The art, layout, editing and adventure quality is hard to match.
Last but not least has been a constant in Mythoards, an old Judges Guild product raised from the crypt of yesteryear. This time it was the Astrogators Chartbook. My good friend +Rob Conley says its a very cool book. I have no idea. It's still in the plastic and I feel like I am violating an artifact if I break the seal. But I'll do it damn it. I swear I will.
As you can see/read this Mythoard has a heavy sci-fi slant. I really enjoyed this month a lot and looking forward to the next month of course, but for now I am going to look at my hoard again.
Same picture as above, but I do just like looking at it. Go subscribe to Mythoard. It will make you smarter and better looking...and a lot of you out there can use all the help you can get.
