Mythulu Cards in Action
The Deck Categories
The foundation for worldbuilding, magic, science, and authentic awe. Each card includes literary symbolism behind the element so you can layer subtext intentionally into your games or stories.
External metaphors for internal states of mind. Reveals imbalance in body vs mind, self vs others, survival vs ambition.
Identities—titles, labels, professions—reinforced by how people spend their time. Covers all five levels of Maslow's hierarchy with a diversity of coping mechanisms at each level.
Conditional connections that describe the flow of energy between two parties. We looked for relationships with inherent conflict, high stakes, and relatability.
Words you didn't know existed, describing real-life phenomena you didn't know were possible. Every trait changes the way your character, creature, or race interacts with the world.
Multi-sensory details designed for impatient modern readers. These meaningful tactile layers change the way characters interact with an object, which can foreshadow, reveal hidden motives, and even impact the plot.
BEFORE YOU REJECT A CARD, ASK:
“Under what circumstances could...?”
“Why might someone...?”
“What would it look like if...”
For example, if you’re drawing to randomize seasonal weather and you draw NECRO and BONE, the first thought that comes to mind is “Every spring it literally rains dead bodies”. That’s weird.
BUT WHAT IF IT DID? What would the impact be on the world? On psychology, trade, religion? What started it? What kinds of bodies? Would you try to stop it? If you couldn’t, how would you adapt?
