Empire Forge is inspired by Axis & Allies and Global Diplomacy, and is always launching new games. Many of the players are veteran Axis & Allies players.
A little bit about it:
Rule a nation of Humans, Elves, Trolls, or Merfolk. Command your
armies, conduct diplomacy, cast spells. Choose a unique leader
character to head up your kingdom.
Empire Forge is a fantasy-based strategy game that should take less
than half an hour per week to play for most people. It is similar to
games like Axis & Allies and Global Diplomacy. Each turn players
assemble their orders and enter them on the web site. There is a
downloadable GUI to help players view the game data. A turn is usually
once per week, but other turn frequencies can be arranged. Orders
consist of troop movements, diplomacy, unit constructions, skills
uses, and other activities.
