I had a lot of history classes back in college and grad school (I mean, I do have a history degree, after all). And while the class I had on the Aztecs was very fascinating, I have to admit that it could’ve used some dragons. Well, obviously, we don’t actually have dragons as part of our history, but that doesn’t mean we can’t inject them into our fantasy recreations of history. That’s just what you get to do in Dragons Conquer America. This alternate-history RPG is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Dragons Conquer America is a CLASSIC ROLE PLAYING GAME, with high adventure, monsters, and epic struggle between the mortal and supernatural worlds.
It will allow you to play stories about ADVENTURERS who explore the Mesoamerican lands, hunt devilish monsters, and discover ancient ruins. Create your character from one of the 13 available orders, cast powerful faith based spells, safeguard yourself from corruption and curses, outgrow your prejudices, and unravel long-forgotten mysteries!
With gameplay inspired by video games such as Monster Hunter, and a setting that draws from fantasy sagas as The Witcher and alternate reality novels like Temeraire, the game offers an honest depiction of the Mesoamerican world, its people and their lore.
The Kickstarter campaign just launched earlier today and is set to go for another 30 days.
