HDI has been working with a small group of dedicated fans to bring this about, and we are very happy with the results. Check it out here, and if you already bought EFS on GOG, you also get this edition free. https://www.gog.com/game/emperor_of_the_fading_suns
The latest Fading Suns Kickstarter raised 420% of what it needed! Backers get the brand new Lost Worlds book, as well as all the previous products they might have missed — including the New Frontiers wave of stuff! Check it out!
The Battles of Destiny Map Editor is now available via GOG! The map editor actually shipped with the game, but was not accessible via the DOS Box. GOG has fixed this, and you can now make your own maps! Instruction for using the Map Editor start on p. 61 of the manual, and we plan to livestream some examples of how to use it.
There is an image attached showing the new startup screen. If you do not get this option, uninstall Battles of Destiny (you will be able to keep your saved games) and reinstall it.
Hammer of the Gods puts you in the role of one of Odin’s chosen, leading Vikings, trolls, elves and dwarves in a war across Europe or a fantasy world of your own creation. A classic 4x strategy game, Hammer of the Gods introduced the combat system later popularized by Heroes of Might and Magic. During play you explore, create new colonies, raid and plunder, and fulfill rewarding quests for the gods of Norse mythology.
