Odin’s missing. Now, that might not seem so bad, if it’s just a quick jaunt, but this is pretty serious. The world tree, Yggdrasil, is shaking violently, its limbs possibly breaking and throwing the nine realms into chaos. The other Norse gods have decided that something must be done. That something, of course, is to become the new Allfather. But, as they say, there can be only one. A fight is on. That’s the story behind Runes of Ragnarok, a new dice game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Runes of Ragnarok is a dice-based elimination game steeped in Norse mythology. Play as a god and wield awesome powers, summon epic allies to fight by your side, sling dynamic spells to change the tides of battle, and if you’re lucky discover a legendary relic to take your game to the next level.
Odin, the Allfather, ruler of Asgard and protector of the Nine Realms, has gone missing. Now, the world tree Yggdrasil is in turmoil. Its branches shake violently, threatening to destroy the Nine Realms in the cataclysm known as Ragnarok. As the barriers between worlds crumble, monsters and magical creatures spill into Asgard, ravaging the once beautiful land.
You are a legendary Norse god who has decided to take up Odin’s mantle and become the new Allfather. The problem is, you’re not the only one. Only the strongest hero can sit upon the throne of Asgard and hope to stop Ragnarok before it is too late.
The campaign’s about 2/5 of the way to their goal with still 31 days left to go.
