I've played SWN twice at conventions now.

I'd describe the game system play experience as generic. Nothing memorable. And old school in approach.

We had several mundane skills with the balance at low level tipped towards failure ala AD&D.

Ship combat is role based. I didn't enjoy it much. However, I haven't played a ship combat system I've liked yet. If anyone ever wants to play Starfleet Battles, let me know. :) Now THAT is a ship combat system, heh.

On the plus side, the system is easy to grasp and play. It faded into that background, and sometimes that's what you want.

I'm in a Blades in the Dark mood, and have been reading the Alien RPG, so I'm ankles deep in systems with flavour and uniqueness, and my memories of SWN contrast starkly, like brushing your teeth after drinking orange juice.

This week's Bundle of Holding is about Mythras settings sourcebooks (so might be of interest to our Mythras guru @Hannu):
Adventurer! This Mythras Settings Bundle brings you many recent campaign worlds and supplements for Mythras, the RuneQuest-based fantasy tabletop roleplaying game by The Design Mechanism. This new offer presents the standalone Lyonesse rulebook and two adventures, the licensed Luther Arkwright setting and its Parallel Lines campaign, and the massive jungle-pulp sandbox Monster Island. And in case you didn't get any of our past Mythras offers, we also include the Mythras core rulebook, so you have everything you need for a complete campaign in the Elder Isles, the sorcerous jungle, or adventures across the multiverse.
