Another 5-star review for Legendary Games – Mythic Monsters: Mythos!

Courtesy of the redoubtable Endzeitgeist, more high praise for the creepy Lovecraftian horrors of Mythic Monsters V: MythosHis conclusions:


I’m a sucker for mythos-threats, as just about all of you by now will probably know, and these mythic creatures are actually CLOSER to what mythos creatures should be able to do than the base creatures, which, at least for me, more often than not fall short of the weirdness they should be able to accomplish. The authors Tom Phillips, Jonathan Keith, Jim Groves and Jason Nelson have delivered a bestiary, which I will use to represent mythos-threats in non-mythic games – these beings should evoke terror and that they do, thanks to the vast array of unique, new, cool abilities! The amount of iconic signature abilities, the cool supplemental material – that’s the icing on the cake and more than enough to offset the rare case when one particular version does not 100% live up to the level of awesomeness of the others. The inconsistent hyperlinking would be my only other gripe, but at least for me, that’s not enough to rate down a supplement that vastly enhances the alien terror and thus enriches our games – not necessarily exclusively on a mythic level. My final verdict will hence clock in at 5 stars + seal of approval.
