Mythic RPG is a DriveThruRPG.com best selling product that made true solo role-playing a possibility, using any RPG. Mythic RPG introduced the concept of solo "oracle" engines in 2003, later breaking out the GM emulation rules from the full RPG in 2006 with Mythic Game Master Emulator.

The popularity of solo and GM-less RPG play has grown ever since.

The Mythic system has been expanded with further books offering additional options for your solo RPG experience. The monthly ezine
Mythic Magazine regularly presents new rules and tips.

Word Mill Games has also released the
Crafter Series of books, designed to give Game Masters more tools to make adventure creation quick and fun.
