Mythic GM Emulator - with log window

A member of the Mythic Yahoo Group, who goes by "grant_erswell", created this excellent little html page that allows you to perform Mythic Fate rolls and create Mythic random events. I was playing around with it to add Tom Pigeon's description table, which is very very handy.

Anyway, I got a little carried away and added a text area to act as a log window to capture Fate Chart roll, and event results so that I don't have to type them by hand. I can also use it to write my narration so that I just need to copy/paste the whole thing and save it to a file.

Since not everybody has access to the Yahoo Group-- though you really should! :)-- I'm putting it here so that anyone who wants can use it on the blog, or get the source to put it on their own device.

Monomyth Stages as Mythic Meta-Threads - Template

This is an unfinished "template" for the Monomyth Stages. The basic purpose is to treat the various Stages as "meta-threads" under which the normal Mythic Threads are organized. The questions pertaining to the Monomyth stage  are treated as Mythic Threads to follow as you see fit. Those questions can either be resolved, or used to generate more specific Threads as the story evolves.

As mentioned, the template is unfinished, as not all of the Stages have been fleshed out with questions. Most of the questions were directly lifted from The Writer's Journey, and this Hero's Journey document.

The reason I decided to go with this is that I've already been using the questions in the Writer's Journey to guide me in much of the session, but I wasn't taking advantage of the Mythic list organization, nor was I explicitly or concsiously thinking of the questions as Threads to follow. I find that organizing these as Threads provides me with direction when I'm stuck.

An example how this template is being used can be found here. Note: some of the Threads there have been retrofitted to this structure.

Monomyth Archetypes Cheatsheet


Purpose: Look at this cheat sheet of sorts for ideas and direction whenever you are stuck as to where to go with a character. The ideas from here can be fit into one of the Hero’s Journey stages as Mythic threads or Fate questions.
I guess you could also treat this as a Mythic Character List by putting your story's characters under the Archetypes that make sense.

Some of the Threads here have been retrofitted to the structure.
