I've Got the Mythic GM Emulator on My Mind

I've been stumbling upon numerous forum and blog posts in which folks have been using the Mythic GM Emulator to run solo games or even small parties with out a GM. How friggin' awesome is that?

I have a PDF copy of the Mythic RPG (and a softcover copy packed away somewhere - god but I need to organize and catalogue, but that's a whole other story), and the emulator is drawn from that. It's actually a set number of chapters from the full product.

I think this is something that could really work well for some out home gaming, maybe even drawing my son into it (like the Borg, I like to assimilate others when i can). I suspect it wouldn't work so well via a VTT, but that's okay. If it can handle 1 to 3 players at my kitchen table, I think we are good to go.

Way too much on my plate waiting to be read these days ;)


  1. I'd like it if the GME's how-to text was a bit more concise, but I like the product. As a GM I've used it to generate spin-off problems, threats, opportunities, and rewards for my table-top games, and in my view it's a good tool for prep-- even if you're not using it in lieu of a live GM.

  2. Yeah Tenkar, I hear ya. I plunked down some money for the GME this weekend and have been reading it. It seems pretty cool. I'll soon see if it actually works. :)

  3. Tenkar... No! Bad! No replacing GM's... Bad, Bad, Bad!

  4. I've recently acquired a copy of the Mythic GM emulator myself. I'll probably end up using it to help me flesh out my Traveller/Battletech campaign setting and will use it to solo some Pendragon.

  5. I've thought about picking this up as well. May have to add it to my next book order.
