This study will describe the design decisions and principles behind the artificial intelligence (AI) for a multiplayer online role playing game and the use of an expert system to implement it. Mythic is an active project focused on the development of all aspects of a multiplayer online role playing game (MORPG). The goal of Mythic is to develop a system with the capacity to offer similar capabilities as current MORPG games available on the market, as well as providing new innovative features to distinguish it from other MORPG games and make it attractive to potential players.
