Base Mythic Abilities

Every mythic PC gains a number of base abilities common to all mythic characters, in addition to the special abilities granted by each mythic path. These abilities are gained based on the character's mythic tier.

1st - Hard to kill, mythic power, surge
2nd – Mythic initiative
3rd - Recuperation
4th – Mythic saving throws
5th – Immortality

Hard to Kill (Ex): A mythic character never risks instant death. When making a death saving throw, a mythic character adds their mythic tier to the save. (A natural 1 still counts as a double failure even if this bonus would cause the roll to succeed.)

Mythic Power (Su): Mythic characters can draw upon a wellspring of power to accomplish amazing deeds and cheat fate. This power is used by a number of different abilities. Each day, you can expend an amount of mythic power equal to 2x your mythic tier. This amount is your maximum amount of mythic power. If an ability allows you to regain uses of your mythic power, you can never have more than this amount. You regain all of your mythic power after a long rest. At 3rd tier, you regain 1d4 points of mythic power with a short rest.

Surge (Su): You can call upon your mythic power to overcome difficult challenges. You can expend one use of mythic power to take an action or move up to your speed after another creature's turn in combat. This does not change your initiative, you still act normally when your turn comes up. At mythic tier 3, you can take an action and move up to your speed. At mythic tier 5, you can take an action, move up to your speed and take a bonus action. You can only use surge once a round.

Amazing Initiative (Ex): At 2nd tier, you gain advantage on initiative checks. At 5th tier, you act on your initiative and your initiative -10.

Recuperation (Ex): At 3rd tier, you are restored to full hit points after a short rest.

Mythic Saving Throws (Ex): At 4th tier, you gain advantage on all saving throws.

Advantage You can expend a use of mythic power to receive advantage on a saving throw, attack roll, skill check or ability check.
Healing You can expend a use of mythic power to immediately spend a number of Hit Die to heal yourself, even without a short rest.
Break Condition You can expend a use of mythic power to make a second saving throw on an effect that causes an ongoing condition. If the second saving throw is successful, the condition is ended.

If the seer is capable of casting spells, he may regain a spell slot by making a Wisdom check against DC 20 + spell level.

Interesting. Any particular reason you kept the dual actions from the playtest version of Pathfinder mythic? Restricting it to only when you expend a use of mythic power did seem an improvement in the final version of the rules.

Do you envision this interacting with epic boons at all?

It was actually based on my version of PF mythic, done shortly before I headed over to 5e. Action economy is one of the biggest weaknesses of PCs in any edition, and mythic seems like the best place to provide a counter to that.

I do envision it interacting with epic boons, or any other system. Like PF mythic, I expect it to be applied as parallel advancement, so whether it becomes your 21-25th 'level' or is tacked on one tier per four levels, or you start out at level 1, mythic 5 isn't really my strictest concern. I expect that the one tier per four levels would provide a more balanced advancement than other methods, but that's on a DM and his group to determine.
