While we’re on the subject of glowing reviews from the legendary Endzeitgeist, I would be remiss if I didn’t share his latest commentary on the products from our Legendary crew. In this case, he brings you the definitive commentary on Mythic Magic: Core Spells. He says:
This is beyond ambitious. Within record time of the release of Mythic Adventures, Legendary Games has released this massive book of CRUNCH. Of in your face, no-frills, full-blown crunch. As a reviewer, books like this are WORK – crunching numbers, looking for discrepancies. With that and my designing-experience, I can attest that this book must have been a chore at times to create and it speaks of the diligence of designers Jason Nelson and Jonathan Keith that they managed to get this out as fast as they did and in the quality.
Now let’s get one thing out of the way: Yes, this is not a particularly cheap pdf – in fact, it is rather expensive. But what it covers also makes this not just AN expansion for mythic spellcasting, but rather THE expansion: With diversified augments, the mythic spells herein are actually much more eclectic in the options they allow than basic, non-mythic spells, hence making casting these spells much more enjoyable. Beyond that, this pdf covers so many spells and does this in a way that makes this supplement look like a chapter that has been cut from Mythic Adventures – the massive array of mythic spells herein should not be considered optional for a mythic campaign, but rather as a required collection. Is it perfect? No, but it succeeds with bravura at its given task and while it may not be a cheap offering, if you’re playing a campaign using mythic rules…then your group needs this pdf. And yes, the price-point hurts, as do the scarce few gripes I could muster – but still: My final verdict will clock in at 5 stars – How else rate a supplement for a mythic campaign that is NOT optional and may be considered a required expansion-chapter of Paizo’s hardcover? If you run a mythic campaign, then this should be considered a required purchase.
