I thought I’d share some of the work I’ve been doing recently for Mythras.

Lots of manuscript reviewing. Working drafts for three books are with me for first review before moving into editing.

The first is Alex Green’s Fioracitta, an Italianate style city state that would make a great addition to any late medieval campaign, and a very good fantasy foil to Mythic Constantinople. It could also be dropped in Thennla without too much effort, but is equipped with its own background too.

The second is Agony and Ecstasy, a Superhero scenario designed to test the appetite for Mythras Superpowers. It’s got a very nice Jessica Jones/Luke Cage feel to it, and I’m looking forward to moving this one through development.

The third is Worlds United, from John Snead, and this is Pulp Fiction Planetary Romance in the Atomic Era. Earth has suffered two Martian invasions, and discovered life on Venus. All this leads to Rockets, Dinosaurs, Rayguns, and lots of 40s and 50s SF serial adventure! Great on its own, and terrific when coupled with Luther Arkwright.

Also due to drop into the review list is House of Crows for After the Vampire Wars. Having seen the way Chris Challice has been developing this supplement, I think it's going to be really good.

Work continues on other projects too: Lyonesse, a Mythras Companion, Mythic Greece, and Mythic Babylon

Lots and lots to look forward to.

This means ... there's no Superhero supplement in the works, but depending on how A&E goes, there might be?

Nice.  I am even more jealous.  I need 30-hour days, or a staff, or something. :-D

Correct. Sort of.

Supers, as discussed extensively on these boards, are tough to get right. This will see if we're on the right path.

Books on planetary romance *and* superheroes. That's impressive.

What's the Mythras Companion? Something along the lines of Ships & Shielwalls? Combat cards or other helpfulness?

I'm really stoked on Mythic Babylon myself!

Thanks. I actually thought that was a part of the teased Lyonesse material.
