Yes, I am still trying to enrich your lives with information about MYFAROG, even though you subscribe to TP, and not the MYFAROG blog…

Not all myth masters (i. e. game masters) use screens, but I find them very useful. Perhaps I will make a professionally made MYFAROG myth master’s screen at some point, but for now I just give you this 4-page PDF, with the tables I find most useful when I play. You can print the PDF out for private use.
To make your own myth master’s screen using this PDF, just print it out and somehow fasten the sheets to a piece of cardboard.
The tables are colour coded, with blue tables being used for skills, green for combat and rouge for travel.
NB! The MYFAROG rule book will have black and white tables, and the font is larger than here. I made the font smaller here to fit in as much as I could on 4 pages.
When MYFAROG is out, you can e-mail me (

MYFAROG is now being printed, and will probably be published no later than in December this year. Note also that all the character sheets and a number of myth master (or ‘game master’) aids have been made available on the ‘Character Sheets & Myth Master Aids’ page (found under ‘About’ on http://www.myfarog.org). These can be freely downloaded and printed out for private use.
PS. I can add that you don’t need all these sheets to play the game. Most of them are optional and only there for those who wish to use them. Also, a player will only use either the Seiðr sheet or the Âsatrû sheet (or the Âsatrû sheet for use with optional rule 2).

MYFAROG is not made to be (what at least I call) a «hack’n slash» fantasy RPG, focusing (close to) everything on combat, but I still think the combat rules of any RPG is the most important feature of the game. Gamers are going to want their characters to engage in combat, so if the combat rules don’t work, like if they are too slow, too unrealistic or in any way unbelievable, then the whole game is as I see it broken and basically unplayable.
The difficult part in this context is of course to find a balance between what is realistic and what is playable, but I think the problem is to a large degree solved by making a system where the players can easily adjust the system according to their style of play and preferences.
In MYFAROG combat can be made less complex and less time consuming by simply…

Before reading this article you should have read this and watched this:
The article I linked is rather old and I read it some time ago. The video is rather new, I recently watched it and it really impressed me. I had to think about this whole topic for the whole day yesterday and I noticed something, which I want to share with you here.
I would like to begin with something that has not really much to do with the topic of the intelligence of plants (at least at the first sight): Humans seem to be scared, when they are alone in darkness, some people more, some people less. There are people, who have an abnormal strong fear of the dark and a large part of little children are really scared when they are alone in the dark. However there are also people who are not really scared by…

They say it is not airborne, but they don’t know that (and they don’t even seem to understand what ‘airborne’ means). It probably is; how else could a professional nurse become infected in a Spanish hospital? Are they completely incompetent there or what? They had one single patient with Ebola, and now (at least) one nurse is infected. That’s bad statistics, and is not very encouraging for the medical personnel. What happens if they get ten patients? Or one hundred? Or thousands?! They will quickly run out of medical personnel…
How long will the nurses keep working, before they say ‘stop’ and refuse to go to work? What happens then?
How long will the policemen keep working, before they say ‘stop’ and refuse to go to work? What happens then?
How long will ordinary workers keep taking the bus or the metro?
How long before it all collapses?
..and the airlines still fly between West Africa and the rest of the world. You know: Globalism comes before anything! They need to shift people between the continents, and keep this world a ‘global village’. Entire villages have been wrecked by Ebola already… and that will happen to the ‘global village’ too.
Brace yourselves. S will soon HTF!

The Bear Cult will be thoroughly explained in a eerie with videos on my YouTube channel.
Here is the second one:
The Bear Cult and the worldview in the Stone Age #2
If you want to import a plant or an animal from abroad,you are most of the time not allowed to – and take note of the reason why: because the government wants to ensure that the agricultural industry is kept free from pests and diseases (source, source and source).
This makes sense, naturally: plants and animals from other parts of the world are carriers of pests and diseases that our plants and animals are not from nature equipped to deal with, and that we in any case don’t want here.
The introduction of new plant or animal species is always very risky, and commonly cause huge problems to the native plants and animals. I am sure we all know the ‘horror story’ about Australia and the introduction of rabbits and foxes there – and the consequences for the native animals. So we are probably all happy that we have a good system in place, intended to protect our flora and fauna – and our agricultural industry.
But are we – the people living here – offered the same degree of protection?
They protect us from harm by forcing us to wear a seat belt if we drive a car (but not a bus…!?) even if we are so obese that we can not fit into a car seat belt without a seat belt extension, so why would they not protect us from e. g. Ebola? Right?
Many here in our ‘civilised’ part of the world assume that we are safe, because we have such a modern health care system and such effective systems to identify and deal with contagious diseases. I mean; if we go to such lengths to protect our native flora and fauna, and the agricultural industry as well, we can assume that the same level of protection is in place for us native human beings too, right?
Well… when a man in the ‘advanced’ USA, just after returning from a stay in the Ebola-ridden Liberia (source), became sick and went to a doctor the 26th of September, they did not isolate him immediately. He was instead told to go home, because they failed to identify the cause of his illness (Ebola), and was only isolated in a hospital two days later – exposing all those he had contact with in the meanwhile for the virus (source).
They stop plants and pet animals in the customs, because they might have some disease or bring some pests, but people arriving from Ebola-ridden countries are free to enter just like that? Not even a quarantine? And note that Ebola is just one of many such threats to our populations (source).
We live in a global village now, whether we like it or not, and the truth is that diseases that in the past would exterminate whole villages, still can do just that: exterminate the whole global village…
Living, walking and learning together? (And dying together….)
The global village will survive for some time, sure. Their total failure is not just around the next corner; their fall is long and painful. Ebola will tear on their concept, just like HIV/AIDS did, and so will the ‘fruits’ of ‘multiculturalism’, ‘feminism’, ‘capitalism’, ‘socialism’ and all their other fallacies do too. Eventually the weight of all these curses will be too much for their system to carry, and combined they will spell the doom of the global village – a concept we know well they refuse to abandon, no matter the cost (source, source and source). All those who cling to their global concept will fall with it. All those who refuse to change, and their children too, will die – a horrible, painful and humiliating death.
Only those who escape the village will survive; run to the hills, hide in the forest, build your castle in the mountains, fortify your island – and isolate yourself from the global village as best you can, as soon as you can, in good time before it is too late. The sooner you start, to plan, to prepare, and to actually do this, the more likely you are to survive. Become as self-sufficient as you can, and only become dependent on and accustomed to what you know you can build, maintain, repair and keep going without any help from the global village.
