New Gods of Mankind is a roleplaying game where players take on the role of young deities who guide their tribes through the dangers of the world. It is an archaic age with the newer species of humanity struggling for survival beside six Elder Races and their ancient gods. The gods of the Elder races have a detailed history with the world and each other. Many wars have already been fought over people, land, and resources, and mankind and their new gods are infants by comparison.
Player Characters in this game are Deities in the classical sense. Each player will have the opportunity to create a god or goddess with powers like the ancient Greek, Native American, Norse, or other pre Judeo-Christian Gods. Like the gods of old, these characters will have many followers, priests, and heroes living in temples, villages, and cities dedicated to the God. Each player will get to describe their tribe, land, priesthood, temples, heavenly abode, and even their Heaven and Hell.
