Mythic Game Master Emulator Second Edition

Play any role-playing game solo or without a Game Master!

Mythic's oracle-style question resolution system revolutionized solo role-playing. The Second Edition of the Mythic Game Master Emulator updates the ground-breaking 2003 ruleset with essential new additions, a wide range of options to customize your adventures, and numerous refinements.

Mythic Game Master Emulator Second Edition can be used with any role-playing system to replace the Game Master, or played on its own without another RPG.


This new edition contains:

  • A revised and simplified Fate Chart for faster and more intuitive Fate Question resolution.
  • The new Fate Check system, receive answers without a chart.
  • Numerous rules refinements and enhancements taking into account two decades worth of Mythic player experiences.
  • Many options for fine-tuning Mythic to get the kind of role-playing experience you want.
  • 47 Meaning Tables to add just the right detail to your adventures when you need it.

The book is designed to be accessible to new players while also offering current players an updated and richer Mythic experience.


How does it work?
Mythic emulates a Game Master by using a few key concepts:

  • A Yes/No question and answer mechanic.
  • Random Events that add surprises.
  • Meaning Tables that offer inspirational prompts for important details.
  • Lists tracking important goals and characters which are randomly selected when called for.
  • Scene structure to give your adventure form and order.
  • A Chaos Factor that changes the tempo of the adventure as you play.

Everything is guided by your expectations and interpretations based on the ongoing Context. This makes sure the adventure continues in a coherent fashion while still allowing for twists and subversions that keep things exciting.

What's changed in this edition?
While the rules have been completely rewritten most of the core concepts of Mythic remain while much has been added or refined. Here is a summary of the biggest changes: 

  • THE FATE CHART: Odds have been slightly simplified and some of their titles changed to give a more intuitive feel. The table itself has been redesigned to also make it more intuitive. 
  • THE FATE CHECK: Answer Questions without the chart. This version has been updated from Mythic Variations II to make it feel more like the Fate Chart. 
  • CHOICES: Mythic GME Second Edition gives more power to Player choices. 
  • LISTS: List management is more dynamic. 
  • ELEMENTS MEANING TABLES: In addition to the Actions and Descriptions Meaning Tables there are 45 Elements Meaning Tables that are more specifically themed. This gives you the option to choose a Meaning Table that is most relevant to the current Context. 
  • OPTIONS: There are a lot of options throughout Second Edition, more ways for you to customize your Mythic experience to get the kind of game you want.  
  • REFINEMENTS: This edition contains numerous changes and refinements to make Mythic play smoother and more dynamic.

Happy adventuring! :)

PDF Options: This PDF file contains layers, allowing you to make the file more printer friendly. In Layers navigation of your PDF reader you can uncheck the "Artwork, color" layer to make all the artwork black-and-white. You can also uncheck "Border" to remove the top and bottom border graphics and uncheck "Header & Page Number" to remove those elements as well.

Hi John :) I expect the POD version to be available by mid-February, assuming the print proofs look fine when they arrive.

Finally have a chance today to sit down and read this. So far, it's amazing. With how much you've put in here, I am curious about the next iteration of the Mythic deck. I feel like it will either be huge, or the cards will be jam-packed with info. Either way, I'm excited to see them.

I've been playing solo for four years before discovering Mythic GME. The instant I started using it in my games, they got more interesting. It's especially good at introducing unexpected diversity at times when the story pace can feel underwhelming. I highly recommend it, thanks Tana.

I was going to ask about a print-friendly version but then I discovered the layers. Thank you so much for including so many layer options! I'm printing now, will use to run my own solo Savage Worlds Fallout game!

Hi Tana P.

I am loving the system so far and love that you have a variant for playing pre-made adventures,
Is there any chance that the ADVENTURE FEATURES LIST could be added as a resource for fill-able PDF on your website? Along side your Adventure-Lists and Adventure Sheet.

Hi Ryan, I'm glad you like it :)

And yes, I'll add that on the Resource page. I probably won't be able to do that until Friday or Saturday this week. I'll most likely also add those to the downloads here at DTRPG as well when I update the PDF file.

This is exciting to see! Will the "Mythic Role Playing" (red cover) book also be updated with the new updates in this? I'm under the impression that the red cover book contains the GM Emulator (blue cover) contents. Thanks!

Mythic RPG 2e is in the works! Yes, it'll contain the updated GME from this book. It won't have all the options and variations from this book, as I wanted the GME book to be as complete as possible with emulator material. The red book will focus on the RPG aspects, which I plan to greatly expand, but the core updated GME will be in there.

Hi Tana P,

I just bought the digital version and i would really'd like to get my hands on a softcover version. I didn't get the option to receive emails from Word Mill so i could get the update on the new available format. Is there any way to add me manualy?

Thanks and great job!

I bought this because of Trevor Devall's review on Me Myself and Die. I've thumbed through and it's incredible. I'm a writer and I've used Mythic to help direct a scene, situation or a character. Looking forward to using it for writing and running a solo game.

Great 2e! Minor formatting error on page 193 in the Threads list at the bottom. Appears as if the font size changed causing the lines to no long be aligned.

Thank you, and thanks for pointing out the error :) I'll fix that one, and a few others, and upload a new PDF soon. So far, that one seems to be the worst problem.

There's a module for FoundryVTT for the "older" versions, do you know by chance whether or not this will be updated, or are you planning anything yourself? I'm considering porting the old module to the new version (maybe just a fork for myself), but only if it's not already planned by someone else, of course.

I saw the review from "Me, Myself and Die", it's a blast! You're definitely the mistress of oracles in the rpg world. I'll wait for the POD version and Deck to order mine at the same time, the shipping costs from DTRPG are a bit high here in Europe.

This was a surprise!... I'm glad I followed my gut and came here to see if there was anything new from you. I just got my copy so I haven't looked at it yet, but I love the fate chart from the 1st edition and I use the fate check from variations II when I'm on the go with my dice and I don't have the fate chart on hand. I'd like to if I can mix and match charts and rules from all the books? (Mythic GME1e, Vexations I and II, Mythic GME2e) to suit my play style?

Mixing and matching should still work fine. GME 2e is more a refinement of the system, nothing major has changed. It still has the modular aspect to it, which I think is important. The Fate Check is in 2e, and I think a more elegant version of it. But yes, you could go through it and use what you want and replace what you don't want quite easily.

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.
