Rimelands: Hammer of Thor is a turn-based role-playing game that combines the depth and feel of old-school with the playability of modern games.
In short, Rimelands: Hammer of Thor is...
... shorter than your avarage role-playing game. One playthrough clocks around 8 to 10 hours. This means you'll get a full RPG experience without spending the common tens of hours of grinding with the game.
... a lot like a board game. It has dice, and not the usual behind-the-scenes dice, but actual visible dice, central to the games mechanics.
... centered around the gameplay, which is to say: combat. But, it also has a real story, far more elaborate than the often seen "kill the evil wizard".
... set in a unique steampunk world. It's an alternate history where a thousand year long ice age drove men below the ground -- and when they finally re-emerged, they found that magic and creatures sustained by it had returned on earth.
... a game with three character paths with play styles distinct enough to merit replay.
