Ooh, even in this brief description, I see so much potential. Using mythic at first level could be interesting, but I imagine you could have it so that characters can only become mythic after 20th level in order to mimic epic levels. As has been mentioned, it could work quite nicely with E6, allowing advancement without necessarily allowing spells beyond 3rd level (depending on how mythic works out). I can even imagine using mythic characters to represent the Chosen in the Forgotten Realms.
I'm really looking forward to this.
I just picked a fight with Jason about Fafhrd and Grey Mouser being mythic (Gilgamesh could kick their asses), and he concedes that he's talking about them more at the end of their careers, and that it's a bit of a stretch to fit them into the paradigm he's thinking about, particularly if you focus on the earlier "grittier" stories that I tend to.
So, I wouldn't fixate too much on those two characters for the time being.
Thank you. I was thinking the same thing about these two characters.
One thing I'm wondering is whether any sort of "multipathing" (an analogue to multiclassing) in the mythic paths is possible. Could, for example, a magus be part archmage and part champion? Or a fighter be part champion and part warden?
