Codex Update, Player's Companion Added

A few updates this time around: MYTHOSA CODEX The Codex continues to be a "living document", which was always the intention. Though I do need to find a different application for the layout; right now, I just use Pages which means that when I change the entries it screws up the entire format. I'll have to take a look for some open source solution. Anyway, this time around I've tweaked the chronology - the months and the days of the week. Calendar:  My old design was one of those "this works out great" ideas and then turned out to be a little too pat (i.e.; contrived). Kind of like the "one deity per alignment" I originally liked and stole from Scarred Lands  and then soured on years ago. I was also inspired by Glorantha's use of "seasons" rather than "months", though for my design I have something in-between. Days of the Week:  Changed to fit a more religious origin, though the DoW are pretty much just a common point of refe

More Thoughts on Campaign Book Format

(This is related to this post from a few years ago). Before I wrote the latest version of the Mythosa PDF (well, version 1.0 at least), I was trying to determine a new format that was both useful and practical. Generally, campaign books follow a fairly standard design that we’re all pretty familiar with by now: some sort of summary introduction (sometimes with a bit of fiction that is usually terrible), then an extensive chapter on the world’s history that will mostly be ignored, a chapter that goes into way more detail than necessary on the political entities of the world, another one fleshing out the religions, and then others that vary but cover things like why these elves are different, and what the various organizations and factions are, possibly a bunch of new mechanical elements (for games like D&D or Pathfinder this would include new monsters, new magic items, new spells, new feats, etc.). Now, let me make it clear that I’m a fan of campaign setttings; I love reading up o

Mythosa Region Map

The new region map for Mythosa has been uploaded to the Downloads page. The regional descriptions will be added to the Codex eventually (for those regions that haven't already been described, such as the Grey Waste or the Varghani Desert).

Cleric Information

Just parking this here until I can update the Codex (this will make up Appendix B). I've decided to change things up and go with the traditional route of clerics serving individual gods (more akin to historical faiths like those of Greece and Egypt). Symbols and domains are listed below. A cleric’s (or paladin's) alignment must be within one step of his deity’s (that is, it may be one step away on either the lawful-chaotic axis or the good-evil axis, but not both). A cleric or paladin may not be neutral unless his deity’s. No domains are listed for the Old Faith since this is the religion of druids and rangers. Druids and rangers can be of any alignment, though they tend towards neutrality in some manner.
