Our Products

Mighty Narhwal Productions is responsible for the Morra Cinematic Universal Game System-- a system for both tabletop and live action role-playing games. 


Our other products are the Mystical Rome Genre setting,  where you can travel back to the time when the Roman Empire stood above all, and become a part of the intense politics, crashing battles, and occult magic of the ancient age. Shards of Legend allows you to take on the aspects of a fairy tale, your soul half driven by your human needs and half spirited away by the need to bite the apple or climb the beanstalk.
