Going Down the Rabbit Hole - Mithgarthr RPG (5e Hack)

I've said this before - I'll gladly play in a D&D 5e game, but I won't run one. I stand by that statement - with the following caveat - I might actually run the Mithgarthr RPG, which is basically 5e with some OSR roots and celtic and germanic ties.

Why do I say that?

Well, Mithgarthr is just 190 pages as a complete game. 5e is how many pages across three books? Just as my 6 year old niece told me that my four page Swords & Wizardry Light was something she could learn cause "its only four pages!" a complete 5e powered game coming in at under 200 pages - including setting - is something I can learn :)

I'm enjoying what I've read thus far although I've got a long way left to read. Well, not long - it is only 190 pages for the PWYW Artless Version of Mithgarthr.

Want the full version with the snazzy art? The Mithgarthr RPG Core Rulebook is $19.99 in PDF ($49.99 for full color hardcover with PDF)

I'll be posting more about Mithgarthr in the coming weeks as I read it further. I'm already tempted to spring for the hardcover.

Damn. 5e may still drag me into its web ;)

Yep, those are affiliate links. Using them when you make purchases at RPGNow keeps the lights on at The Tavern. Thank you.

  1. I look forward to a review after you have read through the material. I have bought any 4 edition or 5 edition material other than monster books. Sounds like an interesting setting.
