About the Tain

The Tain is a file hosting archive dedicated to the "Myth" series: Myth: The Fallen Lords, Myth 2: Soulblighter and Myth 3: The Wolf Age.

Once upon a time there was nothing, and user plugins were shared haphazardly. If mapmakers were not part of larger collectives, it was difficult for them to spread their works beyond small circles of friends and their friends.

Then there was the Mill, the hub of the mapmaking community for many years, whose history is chronicled elsewhere. Sadly, the Mill expired, and mapmakers were left in their original state of disarray.

Now, however, The Tain has been assembled - not by the Smiths of Muirthemne but by Project Magma. The Tain contains an archive of creations accumulated over the years, and will continue to host new content submitted by users for years to come. Users can also write reviews of content, search the archive and browse it. There is also a forum where users can discuss the Myth games, The Tain, its content, mapmaking in general and even the philosophical implications of modern Marxism to quantum chromodynamics (or vice versa).
