...

You are an ambitious priest in a sinister cult, but your Great Old One lies dormant, locked under the awful power of the dread Elder Signs. He depends on you to free him from this half-existence! You must break your insane henchmen out of the asylums where they are locked up, gather spellbooks and other resources, summon endish monsters, conduct dark rituals, and protect yourself against the forces of normal society. If you succeed, your Great Old One will reward you with the title of High Priest, second only to him in the coming cataclysm! But you have rivals, other (obviously inferior) priests in your cult, who seek to claim the prize that is rightfully yours! You must thwart them, while carrying out your plans. Only one can seize the precious title of High Priest – and it must be YOU!

So instead of a peon trying to best please a noble I can be a peon trying best to please Cthulhu. I'll pass.

This is the result of 18 years of dogma from BGG: euro-wanker game designers keep taking cool themes and settings and reducing them to boring procedural work.

I wonder what the original theme was.

This is the design of Sandy "Cthulhu Wars" Petersen's son Lincoln (with help from Sandy, obviously), so I doubt it ever had a different theme. I think Lincoln was helping develop Sandy's games and wanted to take his shot at his own design. So this has far less to do with BGG inspiration, but rather Peteresen Games trying to find more viable products to grow or maintain the size of their company. With the recent failure of their Dungeon Boss board game Kickstarter and really any project other than Cthulhu Wars under-performing (relatively), I think they may be heading into troubled waters...

Gods War needs to be a big hit, I think. They certainly can't sustain themselves on Cthulhu Wars as it seems like the whole family is employed at the company.
