The Wheel of Fate: a Mythic Fate Chart Alternative


What is It?

The Wheel of Fate is a volvelle representation of the Mythic: Game Master Emulator’s “Fate Chart”. A volvelle is also known by other names: wheel chart, “dial-o-matic”, info chart, dial chart, calculator, and more. While the term originally referred to such tools created for astronomy (and became rather popular in the Middle Ages up through the twentieth century), volvelle seems to be the universal term for them now. You'll find them employed for everything from baseball stats to oil filter selectors.

This particular volvelle was created mostly for fun, but I'm calling it a tool in the hopes that you find it both fun and useful. You’ll need at least 2 pieces of card stock. White for the Wheel page will probably work best, but you could potentially use a different color for the Cover page, as long as the print remains legible. You’ll also need some scissors, perhaps a razor blade or X-acto knife for the finer cuts, and an adhesive roller or double-sided tape. Glue will work as a last resort, but beware of "wet" glues that will wrinkle up the card stock and potentially soak through and weld the Wheel to the Hub or the Cover. And lastly, don’t forget to bring your mad paper-cutting skills. Special thanks to those of you on the Lone Wolf Roleplaying G+ community who test drove the assembly process and provided feedback!

How do I Use It?

To use the Wheel of Fate, one simply turns the “dial” to indicate the current Chaos Rank, and then you may quickly reference the target Probabilities and their exceptional values for all eleven Odds exposed in the windows. It also serves as a reference for the other Mythic information you’ll need: How to Use the Fate Chart, Summary of Resolving Random Events, Event tables, and more.

I would like to thank the author and publisher for allowing me to share this tool with you!

This has been a MAJOR help in streamlining my understanding and use of Mythic. I use it all the time now, and I find it works perfectly. Construction was very simple, and I just used staples for sealing the booklet. Actually, come to think of it, I als [...]

I've been a fan of the Mythic GM Emulator for several years now, and this is a great idea. I was skeptical at how hard it would be to put together, but after going to the local hobby store and picking up the few things I needed to get started, I print [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
