Rimelands: Hammer of Thor is a turn-based roleplaying game with dice-based combat. You and your enemies take turns to perform single actions (similiar to roguelike-games), outcomes of which are determined by rolls of dice, visible on the screen. You also have a limited number of opportunities to re-roll the dice, adding a new layer of tactical decisions to the rolls.
The game has three character paths, but no fixed classes so you can mix and match a character to your liking. Each path has unique talents that bring in a variety of strategies for you to utilize.
Rimelands mixes randomly generated levels with pre-designed ones to provide variety for multiple playthroughs.
Rimelands is set in a steampunk world where mankind has recently re-emerged, after a thousand year long ice age, only to discover that magic has returned on Earth, and a mysterious beings called the Fae with it.
You play as Rose Cristo (though you get to change the first name), a young woman raised by her loving grandmother, as she accidentally stumbles onto an adventure that will change her life -- and the lives of those dear to her.
The story of Rimelands: Hammer of Thor is inspired by pulp adventures of old and thus bears more resemblance to Indiana Jones than to Lord of the Rings.
