Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
This thread is now for OOC discussions and debate about Myth. OOC notes and clarifications may be added where appropriate in the IC thread behind spoiler tags.
This is a free-form, in-character world designing project. Basically, each player takes on the role of a god, choosing a particular domain or portfolio with which to work. They then proceed to create and design a playable fantasy setting from the beginning on down.
Play itself is completely free form. Players may work whatever changes they like by making an IC post to that effect, subject to only one rule - don't be a dick. If you feel someone is being a dick (an OOC dick, not just an malevolent god), appeal to me and as referee I will sort things out.
Gameplay proceeds in phases, which essentially just describe what sort of actions will be taking place during that time. Phase 1 is world-building - construction of the cosmos on a basic level. There's no need for specifics - be epic. Phase two begins with the creation of the intelligent races, and from then on the game will focus slowly more and more on details and less and less on the gods, until by phase 5 we can roll up characters and play. See the phase guidelines in the other thread to get a clearer idea.
