Lords of Ragnarok is a spiritual successor to Lords of Hellas (BGG strategy rank #155) — a 'dudes on the map' Board Game of truly epic proportions. It takes players into the middle of an everlasting conflict in a unique world inspired by Nordic mythology with a Sci-Fi twist. Building upon the established core of Lords of Hellas gameplay, it redefines it with new mechanics and fresh ideas. You will still erect great monuments, hunt monsters, and fight epic battles — but you will also use runes to promote your troops, take control of trolls and other monsters, or get unique perks for conquering regions.
In this 2-4 player strategic board game, you will lead a unique, asymmetric hero and their army, trying to be the ultimate victor in a war that unfolds over approximately 120 minutes. Players will choose from various actions, such as building monuments, hunting monsters, ravaging the lands, gathering armies and artifacts.
Gods will grant you blessings that will heavily impact the game and create a unique combo for each player. On top of all that, special runes will play a significant role in leveling up your armies or earning other bonuses that include control of deadly monsters.
There will be a lot of new mechanics and twists, so prepare yourself for fresh, new thematic experience!
Multiple victory conditions will keep players at the edge of their seats until the end of the game, making room for some stunning, carefully planned last-minute reversals!
Lords of Ragnarok is the next major game from Awaken Realms created in collaboration with Adam Kwapiński. As usual, you can expect top-notch quality components, detailed miniatures, creative art and designs, excellent production value, and possibly some delays (as it happens in crowdfunding projects). But we will do everything we can to surpass your expectations, and our history shows that we take quality and delivery very seriously! We have crowdfunded a total of 12 projects (of which ten are fully delivered or mostly delivered), and even in uncertain times such as the Covid pandemic, we continued to deliver our games with only small delays and without asking our backers for any extra funds!
When it comes to miniature design, we have learned and developed a lot since producing Lords of Hellas. We are now using a combination of PVC and hard plastic in our models to ensure that some outstanding parts will not become bent, monuments will assemble easily, and details on these epic miniatures will remain as crisp as possible!
You can also count on our 2D artists to create unique designs that will once again bring mythology to life with a new and fresh Sci-Fi look. Lords of Ragnarok establishes a setting where Nordic gods were alien beings who brought advanced technology into the human world. With that, we can let our imagination go wild and create some memorable monsters, heroes, gods, and more!
