New Gods of Mankind puts the players in the roles of gods of the Known World. Players create god characters by outlining their domains of influence, symbols, miracles, commandments, rituals, worship and more, and begin with a small group of followers. The decisions they make as deities will determine if their influence grows or not. The book is beautifully illustrated, with great detail and attention given to the mortal and celestial realms, and even includes a boardgame 'treatment' of the rules, for those who might want to do away with the roleplaying elements.
I've always been a fan of the old video game Populous, which may be why this RPG and its accompanying boardgame appeals to me as much as it does. While there is a setting included, it wouldn't be difficult to strip it out and use these rules to play the role of gods in the fantasy setting of your choice, making this a very versatile RPG product for a very reasonable price.
