In Mythus what most other RPGs call a player character is known here as an Heroic Persona―HP. An HP being someone who is expected to be heroic, because he is better able to do heroic things. In general he is smarter, stronger, wiser than the run of common men. He is called upon to do more, because he can do more.
And because in Mythus adventure comes as a part of life, a Persona in Mythus requires more detail than in the typical RPG. Matters such as social class and many skill are important, for the Mythus Persona has more things for the player to keep track of, for in Mythus a Persona is expected to do more; find lost treasure, rescue kidnap victims, research ancient tomes; whatever circumstances and times call upon him to do.
But keep in mind that in Mythus a Persona is not limited to but a few activities. It is not his role to fight and loot or any such limited thing. He is not a piece in a game, but a living person in a living world, and he will be expected to interact with his world and the others sharing that world with him. So don’t expect the work of creating your Persona to go quickly. Take your time and be creative, for you may well be playing the role a long time.
Most importantly, keep your sense of humor. Mythus is just entertainment, a way to amuse yourself. As the song goes; you may win and you may lose, but you will never be here again.
