About this Product

Paleomythic is a roleplaying game of grim survival and mythical adventures in the land of Ancient Mu, a harsh prehistoric world full of mysterious ruins and temples to explore, huge and terrible creatures that roam and spread fear across the land, and nefarious mystics and sorcerers who plot dark schemes from the shadows. It is a world of biting cold winters, of people hunting and foraging to survive, and tribes that wage relentless war.

Taking on the roles of hunters, healers, warriors, soothsayers, and more, players will navigate a world of hostile tribes, otherworldly spirits, prehistoric beasts, and monstrous creatures lurking in the dark places of the world. Players have huge scope in sculpting the game experience that best suits them, whether it's a gritty survival story without a trace of the mystical or a tale of grand adventure and exploration in a mythic setting.

Biographical Note

When Graham Rose discovered roleplaying games, he was hooked. He designed his first home-brew RPG in the 1980s and has continued tinkering with games ever since. It was whilst roleplaying that Graham decided to acquire as many of the abilities listed on his character sheet as possible. This quest has led to a wide range of interests, from archaeology to competition fencing, a career in the fields of intelligence and law enforcement, and has also resulted in him crashing a snowmobile in the Arctic Circle, enduring serious illness in Kathmandu, coming face to face with a silverback gorilla in Rwanda, and walking Hadrian's Wall during a storm. Graham lives in the UK with his wife, Nicola, and currently works as a cold case homicide investigator.John McCambridge is a versatile artist, having worked a long time as a concept artist for video games such as Bulletstorm, Runescape, and Saga, Rage of Vikings. More recently he has worked on books and board games, including Elysium, T.I.M.E. Stories, and the illustrated edition of Game of Thrones. He lives in the Fens with his wonderful wife and son.Mars Oosterveld graduated in creating comics and is working on making it his living. Inspired by prehistory, mythology, and creatures real and fantastical, his work focuses on action and dynamics, and is constantly looking to expand his repertoire of styles and forms. Mars was born and currently lives in the Netherlands.
