“In Tenochtitlan, Tezcoco and other cities there were groups of wise men known as tlamatinime. These scholars carried on the study of the ancient religious thinking of the Toltecs, which Tlacaelel had transformed into a mystical exaltation of war. Despite the popularity of the cult of the war-god, Huitzilopochtli, the tlamatinime preserved the old belief in a single supreme god, who was known under a variety of names. Sometimes he was called Tloque-Nahuaque, “Lord of the Close Vicinity,” sometimes Ipalnemohuani, “Giver of Life,” sometimes Moyocoyatzin, “He who Creates Himself.” He also had two aspects, one masculine and one feminine. Thus he was also invoked as Ometeotl, “God of Duality,” or given the double names Ometecuhtli and Omecihuatl, “Lord and Lady of Duality,” Mictlantecuhtli and Mictecacihuatl, “Lord and Lady of the Region of Death,” and others.”

We didn’t do a primer episode for Dragons Conquer America as the rules are in Beta.

Important to note that the kickstarter for this game was cancelled. You can see the page here.
We had some issues with the game, noting that you would have to come at it with a very mature and aware group of players and possibly do some outside research to fully understand the complex issues. There is a great article on Vice by Dia Lacina, you can read it here.


The characters for this game:

Maria Milagros Castaneda (Ken Breese) – A Spanish noble woman turned explorer.

Citlali (Giaco Furino) – A Mexica peasant turned adventurer.
