Paymaster Games Launches Going Native: Warpath on Kickstarter

Paymaster Games has started a Kickstarter campaign for their new minis wargame, Going Native: Warpath.
Go have a look-see.

From the campaign:

Paymaster Games first game, Going Native: Warpath is set for release in the summer of 2013 and we are currently raising funds and selling preorders on Kickstarter. Going Native: Warpath focuses on the native cultures of the Americas and the Pacific and their mythology. We are taking a completely new approach to natives then other games; our game is set in a time before the Europeans arrived in America or the Pacific. Instead of large armies with several models that most historical games require that you make to, Going Native: Warpath takes different approach. Instead of large armies, GN:W forces are smaller and faster groups that resemble realistic War Parties that were formed when it was time to go to war.

We also approached Native American myths and legends as well. Unlike the myths of Europe and Asia, the legendary creatures of the Americas are largely unknown to the average gamer or hobbyist. One of the goals of Going Native: Warpath was to bring these amazing and bizarre creatures to the table top for the first time. Your armies, referred to as War Parties in this game, would not only be able to field the better known American creatures like Feathered Serpents, Sasquatch, or the Thunderbird, but they would also get the opportunity to use fiery Cherufe, the powerful Piasa, or the seductive Deer Woman as well.

    Waiting for the inevitable posts about this game being culturally insensitive and/or racist.

    • Paconious

      That’s racist.

    I have to say, I prefer this concept to yet another Japanese setting.

    • Borzag

      Or another Norse setting

      Or another Greek setting.

      Or another Anglo setting.

      In fact, let’s bring on more of these. I wanna see a game set in the African mythologies. I’d say one in Incan, but I technically AM Incan and trust me it’s kinda dull.

    Thank you for your comments guys. It means allot.

    Don’t get me wrong, as a student of anthropology whose main interest area was Native American cultures (both northern and southern) I’m definitely intrigued by this product.

    Stupid no editing…

    …and think it’s an underused/underrepresented area of mythos to explore.

    I wonder how you’ll tackle Kachinas…

    Well you have to wait and see. 🙂
