It would be awesome if there was a randomization button. Like once u press it, it randomly chooses ur alligiance, weapon, armor, magic, relic, and items

dude just came across this, LUV this idea and the name

 

But if you were still looking for a title you could call it "Olympian Roulette" just a thought

 

and it does seem like it would bring some freshness to a bitter game right now

 

gotta try it out

@ MADatARMS

 

Cool man, hope you like it. It does add a nice change of pace IMO. The name has grown on me too. "Die for Olympus"... basically a die for choosing which god of olympus you'll play as... plus we're literally dying in the arena for the glory of our allegiances, hence a double meaning. Thx for the suggestion though; when I first thought of the idea Russian roulette did come to mind... except olympus style Smiley Wink.

 

Already thought of a way to modify the rules once the 5th god is released. The changes would be the following:

assign each face of the die a value like so

1 - play as Ares

2 - play as Zeus

3 - play as Poseidon

4 - play as Hades

5 - play as the 5th god

6 - play as your favorite god or the one you're best at (this would be like an easier version since you have a

      33.3% chance of playing your fav vs 16.7% for the others)

      OR

      play as your least favorite god or the one you're least good at (this would be a harder version since you have

      33.3% chance of playing your worst vs 16.7% for the others)

 

Guess I wasn't crazy for coming up with this game idea... I just look a little deranged is all lol.

Looked through my old board game box and found a 20 sided die (no I never played D&D!) here is what I added for the other numbers.

 

1 - Play as Ares

2 - Play as Zeus

3 - Play as Poseidon

4 - Play as Hades

5 - Play Favourite God

6 - Play Least Favourite God

7 - Play Ares with a Spear

8 - Play Ares with a Sword

9 - Play Ares with a Hammer

10 - Play Zeus with a Spear

11 - Play Zeus with a Sword

12 - Play Zeus with a Hammer

13 - Play Poseidon with a Spear

14 - Play Poseidon with a Sword

15 - Play Poseidon with a Hammer

16 - Play Hades with a Spear

17 - Play Hades with a Sword

18 - Play Hades with a Hammer

19 - Play Favourite God with no Armour

20 - Play Least Favourite God with no Armour

 

Obviously you can fiddle around with a couple of them, this is just what I thought was good seeing I've maxed everything.

@BlueSteel

Cool man, that works too (btw it's ok if you played D&D... no one's here to judge Smiley Wink; just joking around).

 

If ppl prefer not to switch weps around, they could also try changing the god specific armors instead:

ex. instead of 7 - Play Ares with a Spear

                          8 - Play Ares with a Sword

                          9 - Play Ares with a Hammer

       try this instead

                          7 - Play Ares with full Battle Armor

                          8 - Play Ares with full Fury Armor

                          9 - Play Ares with full War Armor

 

I'll add your suggestion to the OP too. Kudos!
