Welcome to Mythic Spheres! This system's been a long time coming, but we're pleased to finally offer a spheres-focused expansion for the rules found in Mythic Adventures that so many people have been asking about. Unlike some other material on this wiki, such as Deific Talents, the Mythic Spheres rules are official content published by Drop Dead Studios.

Before you start checking out the mythic content, however, there are a few things to know. These are important for using these rules, so please read all of the following first.

First, the magical section of this material generally represents content as it appears in Ultimate Spheres of Power, the updated and improved version of the original Spheres of Power rules. They're still very broadly compatible with the original versions of classes, but if you're sticking with the old content, you may need to tweak them a little.

Second, the last tab - Mythic Spheres Solutions - contains rule adjustments that should be considered standard for Mythic Spheres games. While you are free to dismiss the alternative rules proposed, you should know that all of this content was balanced around the Highly Recommended rules (marked as [HR] on that page) and there could be strange results if you disregard too many of those. (Not all of these rules are bad for the players, either. Notably, the official suggestion gives mythic characters significantly more mythic feats than the base mythic rules provide.)

Third, some options grant access to things like spellcasting abilities. In general, these powers never grant spellcasting stronger than your equivalent spell level or your caster level (depending on if it grants traditional casting or spherecasting).

Fourth, if a mythic path gives a character an ability that is functionally useless for them (such as enhancing full attacks on a character only designed to do attack actions), the GM may, at their discretion, swap that ability for a mythic sphere mastery or a path ability the character meets the prerequisites for.

Fifth, Rules Priority, and this one is important. Sometimes, rules from different sources can conflict. When determining which of them takes precedence, there are two factors to consider. First, specific rules take precedence over general rules. For example, characters normally provoke attacks of opportunity for making many combat maneuvers, but feats or talents that say you do not provoke overwrite this general rule. In addition, stronger power sources overwrite weaker ones. In most settings, deities are the highest source of power and can overwrite any lesser effect. Artifacts come after deities, then mythic sources, then other non-mythic sources. This is why if a mythic source says you cannot get rid of a vulnerability, a non-mythic source can never overwrite that even if it is more specific. Rules priority only comes into play when rules directly conflict with each other; otherwise, things function as written. Everything else should be addressed on a case-by-case basis.

Sixth, mythic practitioners and spherecasters may take any mythic path ability or mythic class ability that affects a class feature they have (i.e. something that is specifically included in the ‘Special’ column of a class table), regardless of its original path or class. You must meet any other requirements for that choice, such as minimum mythic tier. With GM permission, universal path abilities that grant spell-like abilities can be taken as normal and are not changed.

Finally, let's go over how all of the content is split up.

Mythic Traditions are basically Casting Traditions, but for how characters achieved their mythic abilities. These consist of drawbacks, qualities, and boons, and they can be used to heavily customize the unique mythic capabilities of each character. The GM has the final say on all of these - and should probably make them - but they serve as a foundation for Mythic Spheres that supports the creativity and flexibility this system promotes.

The Spheremaster is the new mythic path that focuses on spherecasters. While this has a chassis of path abilities and options, it's supported by Mythic Sphere Talents (including mastery options for each sphere) and many Mythic Class Abilities (which improve characters' class abilities). In regular Mythic games, characters usually focus on their mythic path abilities, but Mythic Spheres promotes mythic sphere masteries and mythic class abilities above just the path options.

The Gifted is the new mythic path that focuses on practitioners. It is similar in general structure to the Spheremaster, but also does well if people want to use the Dual Path mythic feat and grab abilities from the original paths, such as Champion or Guardian.

The Mythic Feats section only has a few options - there was a limit to how may could be published in Mythic Spheres of Power - but this section is planned for expansion in an upcoming product. At that time, it may be moved to a new page (or, realistically, new pages) due to length.
