Nine Worlds

Nine Worlds is a story-driven game with a unique system. It uses playing cards and a mechanic called Muses that helps groups create dramatic stories during play. The setting is a modern day fantasy where the gods and creatures of Greek myth are locked in a cold war among an astrological universe. Earth is at the center, cloaked in the illusion of modernity, but all around it are other worlds ruled by the gods and titans in a covert and sometimes overt battle or control of reality.

Inevitably, their actions catch the attention of the immortals.
