If you were a fan of Lords of Hellas, then there's good news. Awaken Realms has created its spiritual successor in Lords of Ragnarok and set the project up on Gamefound. It's what you love about the original, but built and expanded upon.
From the campaign:
Lords of Ragnarok is a spiritual successor to Lords of Hellas (BGG rank top 250 overall) — 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 alliances with mythical realms.
The campaign's around 1 million Euros in funding with 13 days left to go.
