Playmyth Metaserver Shut Down.

Nitro said it pretty succinctly over at the mwc07 website:

Good Luck Mordia

It's just come to my attention that Mordia of Bungie has been diagnosed with cancer.

Metaserver Availability

As most of you probably know, PlayMyth.Net, the community's primary metaserver suffered a breach of security and their website has been taken offline as a result. The metaserver itself is still in full working order, however, there is no means to create new accounts, have passwords resent, see who's currently online, etc.

The head admin of PlayMyth Blades has assured the community that a new website is under development and all should be well soon.

In the meantime, we would like to remind all the mythers out there (new, old, and returning), that there is a viable alternative to PlayMyth while they rebuild the website. is online and fully functional.

Happy Mything!

The Onyx Warlords present: The Power of Ten Mapmaking Contest!

History has taught us that, rather than being a hindrance, contests that require a specific themed limitation on their entries often benefit all sorts of creativity, inevitably resulting in a crop of excellent and fun submissions. The challenge of this contest will be to create a great map using a limited number of unit types, the maximum being, naturally, ten.
