Myth II: The Fallen Levels

by Sevron

Part 1: Introduction

This first installment is fairly slow, as we’re just going to watch the opening cinematic and play through the very brief tutorial. There aren’t any Easter Eggs in the tutorial, and to be honest it’s a little boring. But watch it anyway!

We’ve now learned that, although the war isn’t going well, some brave berserk (more on them later) has delivered a startling new artifact to The Nine (the sorcerer-generals leading the Legion). It’s a head, known going forward as The Head. I wish I could tell you that we’ll learn all about The Head later, but no, we won’t. Not much, anyway. As the world of Myth is more or less based on The Black Company, by Glen Cook, it’s filled with strange magical artifacts and insane and inscrutable sorcerers who are practically gods. We also don’t learn why or how the berserker came across The Head. Hey, they don’t call this narration type “worm’s-eye view” for nothing.

So far, we've used Warriors, fir’Bolg, and Dwarfs.
