Myth of Aeneas Rise of Rome

Aeneas is a hero of Troy that survived the burning of Troy. He is the son of the goddess Aphrodite (Venus) and prince Anchises. His father was the first cousin of King Priam of Troy, making Aeneas a second cousin to Hector and Paris. He became the first hero of Rome and he is the ancestor of Romulus and Remus. As such, he can be considered a mythical founder of Rome.

Now you may wonder why did we bring this up and how does it fit into Northmyth. Well to be honest not that well, but it was a game we started before clearing up the road for Northmyth and we think it fits the Myth part of Northmyth. So we choose to bring it also to tell what we have been into before making the Norhtmyth site.

Myth of Aeneas. Rise of Rome is a strategy game that’s inspired by games like Heroes and might and magic series. The ideas where many and the intentions were good about the game, but we must be honest and say we did not finish the game. We stopped with a pre-alfa version of the game with the bare mechanics in place but nowhere near where we wanted to be. The lack of artists or funding to buy it put the game at a halt. It is still playable tho, but the further development is paused for now. We hope to take it up at a later point where the funding is better. But until that you welcome to test it out Here

Welcome to Northmyth

Welcome to Northmyth

Welcome to Northmyth

Here you will find small games, stories and other things like t-shirts with Northmyth designs. The vision is that it all content on this site and subsites relates to Nordic, Norse mythology. To tell the stories and the myths of the north. The tales of Odin, Thor, Freja and the rest of the old gods. To find myths hidden in the past wich not many knows of and bring them to life. Either in games or books.

We are planning a lot of content the coming time where we will be talking about Runes, rune magic, Vikings and their belief in the runes and destiny, what kind of runes there are in Nordic/Norse mythology and a lot of other things that relate to Nordic/Norse myths and pagan way of life. We hope you will follow us on our journey.
