The Gods War Unboxing
Watch The Gods War unboxing on Runeblooger of the Runeblog.
“The Gods War, a board game by Petersen Games, full of cool fantasy miniatures, some of them huge. See all the miniatures and other contents of this box.”
Two more detailed sets of drawings and descriptions: Mutant Satyr and Nightgaunt.
The Satyr is basically the result of human (or otherwise humanoid) exposure to extradimensional energy sources (i.e.: a Great Old One, a gate, artifact, etc.) or extradimensional ectoparasites.
Mutations can be guided if under a controlled environment but often result in catastrophe. The images show the creature’s concept art, an abdominal dissection and a variant sample (possibly used as cattle).
The Nightgaunt is a slim, elongated inhabitant of the Dreamlands. They nest in high peaks, but are fond of nesting in caverns in mount Ngranek. They are some of the most mysterious creatures of the Dreamlands, and their physiology is still mostly unknown.
They abduct hikers and intruders, usually dropping them in the dimensional underground. Images show the concept, manus and skull detail.

The Skydome is the high ceiling of the universe of Glorantha, dotted with stars. The Sun God travels across it, and the stars shed their pure light upon the world.
They are strict and moral, and hold tightly to their rules, even as the stars do not wander from their places. The Gods War started when the Sun God was murdered, and sent to Hell, removing almost all light from the world. These new gods emerged to fight the enemies of the Sky.
Tough times demand tough gods. Shargash the Murderer emerged to wreak havoc upon the enemies of Sky.
In strict contrast to Shargash’s bloody rituals, Dayzatar chose to rise above the disorder of the war and remove himself from the world.
He is still sought by those who value purity above power.
