Greece has proven her might and the forces of the vast Persian Empire have been repulsed. Each City-State believes it played a key part in the victory and this new-found pride has brought about rivalry, greed and conflict.
Generals and statesmen vie for power and wealth in the chaos, risking exile or execution while the boldest and ambitious gather to them their Hoplites; these tough warriors, armour clad and trained in war, stand loyal to their archon’s city or ideals. The price of failure being exile or death.
In this age of strife and conflict, bold men may seize greatness and become as Mortal Gods!
Mortal Gods is a skirmish tabletop game played with roughly 15-25 models on each side. Players select their force before each game based around a single heroic leader, or ‘Lochagos’, along with a number of loyal companions.
Battles are swift and bloody as players alternate acting with one warrior or a group of warriors – moving and fighting to achieve the scenario objectives, whether that be cutting down the enemy, defending an outpost or finding and protecting an important character.
As you play through the game, your hero can acquire new gifts, and perhaps even catch the eye of the gods to gain victory – such choices are what create Mortal Gods.
This is your time, to carve your name, in the history of Ancient Greece!
The download is for a PDF of the full 36 page Mortal Gods Rulebook and a starter Greek lochos board that provides you with enough cards to play a sample game.
Please note you will need a set of Mortal Gods dice to play the game as well as a set of pebbles to create the activation draw. You can play Mortal Gods without using the Omen Cards, Injury cards (in this instance your heroes don't come back!) and the damage dice but it will detract from the experience.
