Mythic Mortals is a Tabletop Role-Playing Game where you and your friends play as your real-world selves suddenly granted unstable powers. Kickstarted in 2015, Mythic Mortals is a visual and tactile joy.
“The choices on your playsheet are compelling, and the card-slotting mechanic is easily the strongest point of the game.” – Ludicrous Gaming
How Does it Play?
You play as yourself suddenly granted incredible and unstable abilities. Your powers, weapons, and flaws change every few turns, forcing you to constantly adapt.
You’ll be fighting in your hometown, defending your school from monsters, and saving your world from utter destruction. Once you master your powers and your cards, then you will Be The Hero!

“Most of my family played this at Storm-Con 2015. I am obsessed! It was supper easy to work with. We were able to fill a couple of hours with many different adventures. This system is perfect not only for us busy gamers who no longer have the time for the loooong process of character creation and gaming, but is can be worked for great little bonding adventures that a gaming family can do together.” - Chelsey
