Award-winning RPG developers and publishers Hunters Entertainment have announced Gods of Metal: Ragnarock. Their epic heavy metal fantasy tabletop role-playing game has successfully funded on Kickstarter in under 5 hours, unlocking a limited edition vinyl LP featuring mainstream Metal Artists and an instrumental soundtrack.
Gods of Metal: Ragnarock is an Epic Heavy Metal Fantasy RPG celebrating a diverse cast of characters within the dual worlds of the Mundania and Ragnarock. In the world of Mundania, a land similar to ours, even boring mortals have a chance of redemption. Characters claim fealty to one of the 6 metal gods, and form an adventuring band, to take on the roles of Brutalizers, Shredders, Noisemancers, and even Amplords as characters find adventure and glory in a Heavy Metal Inspired world. Products featured in the project include fully zinc dice, votive candles, and plastic maquettes featuring the Metal Gods.
Gods of Metal: Ragnarock features three heavy metal albums, Gods of Metal, Avatars of Metal, and an Original Soundtrack.
Gods of Metal, features an original song for the game from Carla Harvey (Butcher Babies) and Charlie Benante (Anthrax) titled “Born Into Death”, inspired by one of the Gods of Metal in the game. In addition, the LP includes music from Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee Motorhead, as well as Indian Street Metal band, BloodyWood, released for the first time on vinyl. It also includes a previously unreleased single from Chris Jericho’s Fozzy, Icon for Hire, and Silvertomb.
Avatars of Metal, the second album available in the campaign, is a chance for 15 indie bands to be included in the project. Key groups will be announced during the campaign, but bands have an opportunity to submit their own tracks.
The Original Soundtrack for Gods of Metal: Ragnarok is a stretch goal, and features music by Rezodrone. Rezodrone is a group composed of Jason Charles Miller and Jamison Boaza and recently created the music for the radio tracks on the hit action role-playing video game Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt.
Gods of Metal is set to release to its backers in Late 2021, with an early 2022 release for retailers. The Kickstarter runs until February 22.
