With the Quirks that is, and boy are there a lot. Just have to go over the files, correct any errors that I find—you know I won’t find them all—and then get them uploaded to the site where I’ll have even more fun setting headers and the like.
You’ll likely find mistakes we’ll both agree are mistakes. Those I will correct.
You’ll also find things you think are mistakes, that I don’t. Those won’t be corrected, but you are welcome to use the Quirks as you prefer. Mythus is just a set of guidelines and can in no way be considered the voice of God. It’s a big part of why I call Mythus a guide, for you can’t really use it as if it were a game of any sort.
As far as I can see a quirk is just something about a person that is a bit off, a tad odd. In addition, a quirk is a talent few others have, or the lack of a talent most others do. Using me as an example, a few quirks of mine are:
Low Light Vision
Bad Hearing—left ear
And those are just four of them
In Mythus a Persona’s Quirks can give him advantages, disadvantages, and sometimes both. They’re included for your use to help you role play, not to give you any sort of advantage in game play. Sometimes you will get an advantage, but about as often your JM will use your Quirks to your disadvantage, for with great power comes near constant demands on your time and appeals for your assistance.
Most any Quirk can give you problems, and how you deal with those problems tells the world a lot about you.
After Quirks I’ll be getting into Birth Rank and Age. I’ll also get back into writing up the HP species.
I have run into problems with the Weaver Xtreme customizer. Seems when I tell it to save and publish, it doesn’t. So the site doesn’t look right right now. I’ll be working on the theme using the admin page, but that won’t get done for awhile. All I can do is to ask for your patience.
I’m currently reading The History of Tammany Hall by Gustavus Myers—you can download a copy by using a link at the link. Now I haven’t read the whle book yet—I’m fact I’ve really just started, but the lesson I have learned is, Trump is nothing new.
It’s said that history repeats itself. Not so, history reiterates. We keep making the same mistakes because we want to. We really do want to see a different result for the most part because we really can’t understand just how and why the result we got had to happen.
There will always be people who disagree with us. Always be people who want things their way. Liberals insist that they have to be right, giving no consideration to human nature. Libertarians are the same way. Both, plus conservatives and others simply won’t admit that we are not a rational species, never were and never will be. We are emotional and until we accept that fact we really won’t see any progress.
Pride has always played a role in our affairs. The pride in insisting that others must see things our way. It played a role in Tom Jefferson’s election to the Presidency, it played as big a role in Don Trump’s. A pride that makes us see our position as the right one, and which won’t let us see the other side as having any validity. It was pride that led to the election of Abraham Lincoln, as much as to the election of Jimmy Carter.
Myers’ history is a history of greed, duplicity, and pride. It is a history of corruption financial, political, and moral, and a history of irrationality. It is instructive as to the depths we will go to in search of power and position; and mostly importantly, wealth. You want to understand current affairs give The Hisory of Tammany Hall a read.
I open up this site only to learn that I have subscribers. To all of you, welcome. I’m—all so—slowy customizing the look of this place. Seeing as I’m working with Weaver Xtreme it means I have a lot to do. But when I’ve finished this place should look a lot nicer.
However, having a lot to keep track of, and keeping in mind my absent mindedness, I do need to remember to keep taking notes on what I have done. I need to write a note on that.
You are welcome to comment on what you read here, and if I get a big enough response I will add a forum for you to use. I do write about a lot of things, but for the most part the topics will be role playing guides, the Dangerous Journeys system and the Mythus guide itself, and science—Mom was a scientist and she influenced me in that department.
Of course, since RPGs cover a lot of territory Mythusmage Today will cover a lot of territory as well. But that will do for now, because my meds are starting to kick in, and they tend to knock me out. I’ll be back with more to say.
