I created Mythic Mortals to solve a problem with my gaming group. I never have the same collection of players, and new gamers are always joining up. This is great, but it makes it hard to find games to play.

Many RPGs are built for a long-term commitment (months of play), and require a lot of investment.

I wanted a role-playing game that anyone could sit down to play in about 2-3 hours with minimal prep and no prior experience. Forged in the fires of my fluctuating game group, Mythic Mortals emerged.
