Of Gods and MortalsOf Gods and Mortals is a set of skirmish rules for mythological miniature battles. Players each control 10-20 mortals, 1-3 legends (monsters, heroes, or priests), and 1 god. Gods are powerful but will disappear when the faith of their troops is reduced to zero. Gods are also best used in combat against each other. However, on certain results of the dice, the power of a god explodes, hitting all mortals within range. Legends have the ability to swear an oath or make a boast. If the objective of the oath or boast is met, that legend’s army receives a morale boost.
