You enter the dungeon, walking down a long set of stone stairs. The sound of your feet echoes down the dark corridor as you hear something behind the door at the end of the room. Your right foot steps forward as a cobblestone sinks in.
It’s a trap!
Suddenly, you’re bombarded with enemies from all sides. It’s up to you and your friends to save yourselves and loot the dungeon. Can you make it, or will you fall like so many before you?
It’s stories like these that make RPGs so exciting. And whether you’re looking to participate as a gamemaster or player, you have the power to create a unique and compelling journey.
You have the power to create worlds and tell stories that no one else could ever dream of.
Ready to make your own game? Here are 5 of the coolest features of the Elthos RPG Mythos Machine.
1. Make Your Own Game Without Downloading Any Software
Perhaps you’ve considered game creation before, but you’re put off by the expense. Good news, you already have everything you’ll need!
The Elthos RPG Maker runs on the powerful Mythos Machine. Currently, in a free beta, this powerful piece of software runs directly on your browser.
That means that you can work on your game wherever you are, whenever you want. All you need is an internet connection.
2. No Need For Expensive Rule Books
If you’ve ever played an RPG before, you know how cumbersome and expensive the core ruleset can be. Dealing with huge rules systems is an arduous process at best.
You have to determine which version of the rule set you’re looking for, find a store in your area that carries it, and pay anywhere from $30 to $50 for each rules book of the system.
Well, now you can make your own game for less. As part of our free open beta, you can download the Elthos ruleset for absolutely free! We’re giving you everything you need to craft your own exciting RPG. All you have to do is sign up.
3. Share Your Creations With Others
Half of the fun of running an RPG is sharing your trials and tribulations with others. Hang out in a game shop for 5 minutes and you’ll likely hear stories of players’ highest highs and lowest lows.
The collaborative effort is important and we want to foster that sense of community. Which is precisely why we’re introducing the World Things Trading Post.
The Post is a place for you to share your ideas with other gamemasters via the Mythos Machine. Exchange monsters, races, items, and even entire regions of your World if you’d like.
4. Tailor Your Stories To Your Party
Starting out as an RPG player can be intimidating. You’re likely with other, more experienced players who have weathered the throes of the GM’s previous games.
Conversely, as a GM, you want your players to have fun. The Elthos RPG Maker allows you to make on the fly decisions so you can tailor the story to your party.
Need to make a fight easier? No problem. Want to buff that dragon and give it twice as much HP? You can do it. Since the Mythos Machine does all the number crunching for you, when you make a change in the system, it flexes to every place that it needs to so that the math is always done right the first time.
5. Your World, Your Rules
Not only can you make your own game, you can make your own World. Tell your stories, craft your characters, and lead players on an unforgettable journey.
It’s all up to you. Get as creative as you’d like. With the Elthos RPG Mythos Machine you have to freedom to create any kind of World you can imagine.
