Close Encounters of the Mythic Kind!
Whether you’re encountering them on a distant planet in a far-off nebula, or they’ve come to you, and are abducting innocent villagers for nefarious purposes, there’s nothing quite like a strange, alien race to help breathe some life into your galaxy—and your game. Some Pathfinder products have even explored the idea of alien life in the past, and it’s certainly true that many aberrations could serve as alien creatures in a pinch. But there’s one thing that Pathfinder aliens have never been until now, and that is…mythic.
This book presents the Zeknari. A proud and mysterious people with a long and storied past, the zeknari (singular zeknar) were among the first races to explore the stars. Their interstellar quest for gold brought them into contact with a large number of less advanced races, and while the zeknari had a strong hand in the development of several of these races, these encounters had a strong impact on the zeknari as well, giving them an ingrained sense of superiority that has contributed to a long stagnation amongst their people.
The Mythic Mastery series of products builds and expands on the rules for mythic characters introduced in Mythic Adventures. Each Mythic Mastery provides new content and rules for mythic games, with a focus on a single theme or area of play. While some of the content provided in Mythic Mastery products requires the use of mythic characters and a mythic adventure, others, such as those focused on exploring mythic monsters, can be used in games of every sort.
