Initiative/Priority in Mythic

The initiative system in BoL Mythic is a bit more complicated and harder to set up than in Legendary edition.  How many of you that play Mythic have reverted back to the Legendary edition style initiative and how has it worked out for you?

Re: Initiative/Priority in Mythic

Play BoL with Mythic rules (with some house rules of course) - at first I didn't really care for the Initiative system in the Mythic rules, but have been using them for a while and don't  have a problem with them now.

Give it a try, after a while you might like it.  Then again....

Re: Initiative/Priority in Mythic

Umm...can't see that the Mythic initiative system is particularly hard to use.

Personally I like the new system and haven't felt the need to go back to the Legendary version. It has worked well for our group and you soon get used to the new system in play. As I've said elsewhere, Mythic really shines when the dice hit the table - you really do need to run it to appreciate the changes from Legendary edition.

One neat tweak to the system appears in the Everywhen rule set, where a Villain (called a Rival in EW) can have a Boon called Diabolical Plan, which allows them to act ahead of Heroes with a success in the priority order in combat. This is one of three special Boons available to just Villains/Rivals; the others are Meat Shield and Timely Escape - and all three would be a good addition to Villains armoury in standard BoL games.
