Mythic Russia Is Back

Mythic Russia, an outstanding game that everyone should know about, is back in print thanks to Lulu! If you’re not familiar with the game, here’s the official description:

Mythic Russia is a game of roleplaying with the HeroQuest game system in the ancient Russia of legend and folktale, a land of glittering onion-domed churches and dark, dangerous forests, home to heroes, fiends – and the flame-feathered firebird.

Now I’m not actually a big fan of HeroQuest as a system, but damn if this isn’t one fine game that’s well worth owning. If you’ve ever wanted to run a game that draws on Russian fairytales you must get a copy of this game. And at $9.99 for the PDF, you now have no reason not to.

After the great Arabian Nights BRP game is done a mythic russia game (lowercase because I’m talking setting, not rules) is something I hope to con my players into. Wish me luck 🙂

    If you ever get a chance, try to catch Wolfhound and Viy (the latter either the original or the remake). These are Russian movies that show a lot of weird scenes and show an almost alternate Western take on some things, sort of like a bit of distortion. The old Viy is kind of creepy, even with the special effects of the late 60’s.

    mythic russia is every bit as good as Mythic Russia – thanks for the kind words, and good luck with the future game!

    • No, no. Thank you, good sir, for giving the world such a well-researched and well-considered game. I’m just glad your efforts are able to be enjoyed by the masses again. Go Mythic Russia (capital and lower case, both :))!
