My understanding is a number of the gods were destroyed which created the omphalos used as a core mechanic in the game. It's part of the storyline that some major and minor gods were destroyed when Hera awoke the titans and Olympus was shattered.

We'll have to see. It's (afaik) not said that she won't be in.

After all, we've had more suprises, like Hecate and Persephone.

It's not really a matter of "understanding". It's explicitly said in the KS campaign that some gods died.

"The surviving Gods are greatly weakened and have lost their immortality."

It could be easy for gods to "come back".
They are gods.
Their energies may be scattered and depleted, but their divine spirits could totally come back as part of the story if the designers want it to happen.

Especially if fans keep craving more and they have the resources to pull it off, I could easily see gods return.

It could be a twist. The main gods THOUGHT the other gods were killed, but they were just imprisoned or absorbed or whatever...
And then as the battles waged, the energies unleashed ressurected the minor gods.
Poof, that will easily fill a couple more expansions.

In addition to Demeter, I would like to see Dionysus and Nike.

Nike (goddess of victory) seems thematically appropriate for a board game.

I could see Dionysus having his energy spread throughout a band of nymphs and satyrs. He doesn't need to be a single unit to make me happy that he is represented.

Mostly, I wanted to see what they'd do with the mini.

So I understood the facts as portrayed in the campaign and answered the OP correctly. Thanks for letting me know my understanding was correct.

MB is probably sponsored by Adidas, so Nike is a no go.
Also, I don't think a mini with running shoes on her feat would fit the theme.
Ok, while thinking about it, perhaps that would be a nice way to cross finance the game - product placement...

I doubt Demeter is gonna show up, but if she does, it would be really cool if she has two dashboards - a Summer version and a Winter version. You would choose which one you're playing with at the beginning of the game.

Or you could make it have two sides that are available via flipping the dashboard, like: One side has a buff to your units (summer), Demeter is more offensive. The other side has debuff to enemy units (winter), and makes Demeter more defensive. At the end of Demeter's activation, flip the dashboard.

That's so much better!
