Mythical heroes are making their way across an enchanted land, looking for powerful artifacts and erecting temples to the various gods as they slay all manner of beasts. In the end, only one will have their god be most praised in the land. That's what you'll be doing in World of Mythology: King of the Hill, a new board game by Jumperound that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
