Hi fans and followers!
If you visited our site this morning, you might have noticed that you were redirected to some other weird place. That’s because our site was hacked. Luckily, we noticed it pretty soon, and we have lots of backups. So the site was only down for a couple hours, and it has been cleaned and secured. Some of your recent comments were lost; we’re sorry about that.
Most hacks don’t actually leave the target website inaccessible, as that’s not to the hacker’s advantage. Plus, we don’t have any sensitive data stored in the site for them to steal – we have some email addresses, but that’s about it. It was clear this hacker was more interested in taking Mythcreants down than actually profiting from the attack.

I’m interested in having a race of immortals that doesn’t reproduce (after all, it isn’t necessary and it could lead to overpopulation). I’m interested in the idea of having this race be without sex or gender, but I’d like to know what I should consider from … read more »
Spec fic takes us to amazing places, from deep space to the ancient past. But one place it rarely takes us is under water, so that’s what we’re talking about today. Dive in as we discuss the unique potential of underwater settings and why almost … read more »
Downtime is an important concept in roleplaying games. It represents whatever time passes between adventures, whether those adventures are old-school dungeon crawls or awkward socializing on prom night. While the narrative focus may be off, PCs are intelligent beings with free will, and players will … read more »
A hand with all of the fingers the same length. Eye whites that aren’t white. Seeing a stranger in the mirror. A subtler cousin of horror, the uncanny is more about discomfort than fear. Sigmund Freud* described it as, in greatly paraphrased form here, making … read more »
I am a (shamelessly) devoted reader of Mythcreants, so first I want to thank you guys for the always wonderful advice! Now, to the meat of the sandwich: I keep wondering this, but do ALL character flaws need to be overcome? In my book, the … read more »
