No sample character? That's a shame!
It seems as if you have to wade through an awful lot of rules and complications for, well, not much really.
@Kel: Yeah, ~20 pages of waffle for that. Doesn't seem worth the bother, does it? Not to worry though, there's a lot more complication ahead. I've flicked through the Advanced chargen section and each of those three traits explodes into something like 9 separate ability scores (each with its own opaque acronym). My big takeaway so far: Dave Newton liked RQ, and TSR were just trying to stop EGG from publishing anything.
I am wondering why you wouldn't just play RuneQuest instead, but perhaps future chapters will reveal the hidden delights of Mythus!
