Mythras Encounter Generator is a tool for generating random NPC's and monsters for Mythras / RuneQuest 6.
One of the fundamental principles of the tool is, that the creation of the content - the NPC/monster specifications and templates - is created by the community. Anybody can create a new template, that other users can later use to generate NPC's/monsters.
- Many of the chaotic features as well as encounter random featuers have been taken from Peter Maranci's RuneQuest site at www.maranci.net/rq.htm.
