Mythic Game Master Emulator Deck

Play your favorite role-playing games solo, or with a group of players without a Game Master, using only your imagination and the Mythic Game Master Emulator Deck to guide you!

Based on the DriveThru Platinum Selling Mythic Game Master Emulator ruleset, this deck of 120 cards replaces the dice and the books, giving you Mythic results directly. The Mythic Deck handles everything Mythic handles, including Fate Questions, Event Focus and Meaning, Scene Setups, and adds Action and Description answers.

The Mythic Game Master Emulator Deck gives you all the tools you need to run a GM-free game either with a group or solo, by yourself. Mythic works with any role-playing system, and also as a writing tool to give your imagination a boost.

The PDF download of this product contains a complete guide in how to use the deck, as well as all the cards you can print for yourself. The print version is the 120 card deck along with a tuck box. The PDF manual is free when ordered with the cards, so be sure to check the PDF + Cards option when ordering the print deck.

Wow, I love your continued support with these amazing products!

The Mythic magazines take this greatness even further!

You have no idea how much solo enjoyment I have gotten from all things Mythic!

It holds a special place in my heart….I am a satisfied customer for life.

Thank you Tana!

Is there a way to use these cards to ascertain the answer to competing ranks? I use Mythic RPG for my solo games and I keep both fate charts( Mythic RPG FC and Mythic Emulator FC). I would like to use these cards only but I dont see any indication that these can answer difficulty vs acting rack questions.

Hi Sumit. The cards are meant to be for the blue book emulation rules only.

I plan to write an article at some point in Mythic Magazine to address using the deck and the chartless Fate Check from Mythic Variations 2 with the Resisted Ranks rules for Mythic RPG. For what you're asking, it'll mostly boil down to comparing every 2 shifts in Rank difference (rounded up) between the Acting and Difficulty Ranks and using that as a modifier on the Odds chart with the deck, going up if the Acting Rank is higher and going down if it's lower.

So for instance, your Acting Rank of Exceptional in computer hacking versus a computer firewall of Above Average is 2 Ranks in difference, giving you a +1 shift in the Odds. Starting from Odds of 50/50 this would take you to Likely with the cards. So, you're turning the Acting Rank and Difficulty Rank difference into Odds with the cards, starting from 50/50 and not using the Chaos Factor.

I'm aware how fiddly that all sounds right now, I plan...See more

Thanks a lot! Well done. My sandbox game really comes to life with your card deck, and it makes using the GM Emulator much more convinient.

Do these come with individual image files so the cards can be used on VTTs or a deck drawing app (I use Custom Image Dice for Android)? I see you've done this for the Adventure Crafter deck, but there's no mention here.

Hi Matt, thanks for asking! Yes, there is a zip file included that contains individual card images for use in apps. This was added later after the initial publishing when people asked for it. I should add that to the product description.

I'm not sure if it's been asked before, but will the entire deck of cards fit into one large deckbox, or do you need two deckboxes to keep them in?

Just bought the pdf's for these and I am looking forward to use them in conjunction with 'Forbidden Lands'. Thank you for making this !

And now I of course also wonder if there are any news on more card decks, like for the 'Adventure Creator' :-)

Now you make me want to get Forbidden Lands lol I hope the cards work out well for you!

The Adventure Crafter Deck is still in production. It got significantly held back thanks to the ripple effect of the pandemic. It's close to being done, I expect to get it out soon.

The preview states that the Chaos Factor affects the likelihood of Yes results. It doesn't mention if my perceived likelihood (unlikely, very likely, etc.) of a Mythic question can affect the result.
Are there rules or guidelines for both perceived likelihood and Chaos Factor affecting a Mythic question? If so, would you give a brief explanation?
Thanks

Never mind. I just noticed the "Answer a Fate Question" card.

Ugh, pdf print version of the cards aren't duplex printing friendly. You get one page of each of the backs, then for reference there are only two cards available duplex (2 correct front & back, 6 back only), the list has three pages of fronts, but the last one only has one front on it (would it have really hurt to make the list fronts out to 24? Sure, probably worthless...), and finally you get thirteen pages of actual Mythic fronts (14 if you count the make your own cards page). Yeah, some gaps on page 13, but that isn't such a big deal and avoids confusion with the make your own cards (which would have been the only reasonable filler for the three empty slots).
So, instead of one duplex print job, you have to do SEVENTEEN duplex prints, being very, very careful not to screw up the pages listed to print... or some other combination of printing off individual sheets of back and matching them up with the correct fronts by individual page printing.
Would it really have hurt to copy the backs...See more

When do you put the cards you've drew back into the Mythic deck? I may have missed something in the Manual.
Customer avatar
Tana P February 12, 2020 5:58 pm UTC

Hi Matthew. Thanks for the question. When you draw the Shuffle Card, that indicates it's time to put the discarded cards back into the deck and reshuffle. After you draw it, you should finish whatever question or action you were completing, then reshuffle the whole deck.

I hope this helped! Happy gaming :)

Really like the idea of using a deck of cards as opposed to rolling on a chart. I'm curious, have the design-advancements introduced in Mythic Variations 2 been included in this deck version? On my initial flip-through I really liked the updates and options added into MV2.
Thanks!

Hi Aaron! Thanks for your question. It's primarily a deck version of the original Mythic Emulator rules, so it doesn't include material from Mythic Variations 2. However, it does include the Description Meaning Tables that are in Mythic Variations 2 (and Location Crafter). I wanted the deck to be as simple and pure Mythic as possible, but I felt the Description tables should be a part of that. Also, I just ran out of room on the cards :)

I'm considering doing more decks that incorporate the rules from Mythic Variations 2, with cards for the various new checks.

Hi Tana Pigeon,

I live in Sydney and would like to purchase the "Cards in TuckBox" version. Is there a way to obtain these locally? I don't want to have to have them ship from overseas if they are available from a distributor here in Australia. Thanks

Hi Gary. Thank you for your question.

Drive Thru handles the printing and processing. I don't think there is any way to have them produced locally in Australia. If this changes, or I find out otherwise, I'll post here to let you know.

Thanks for the reply Tana however with the USD to AUD exchange rate the cost comes in at $35.45 AUD. That is a very expensive set of cards. I'll have to wait for a sale ;)

Cheers!

Hi. I purchased the PDF only in order try DIY way. Unfortunately, it seems that A4 cards version has layout which is inapriopriate to do double-side print (a page side does not have compatible next side). Is it possible to prepare A4 version for double-side printing (which most probably requires duplication of some pages to fit avers and revers and some reorganization of specific page layout)?

Hi Damian. Thanks for your post. I did a test print and I see that the two sides are off a little bit. The A4 size was a new addition to the product, and it seems I didn't quite get it fully aligned. I'll get a fixed page up there soon.

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.
