[Burning Games] Dragons Conquer America: The Coatli Stone Quickstart Burning Games

“A map, tattooed on a piece of old skin, has been found by your group’s leader. It points towards the Coatli Stone, a mysterious artifact that is said to procure incommensurable power to whoever owns it. You have seen the map with your own eyes, and have a good idea where it leads to. The temptation to go rogue is strong… and you succumb to it. Will you and your partners in crime reach the Temple where the Coatli Stone is held and get hold of it before your bosses’ army finds out about the treason?”

What is Dragons Conquer America – Episode 0: The Coatli Stone?

The Coatli Stone is the file you are about to download. It’s a free introductory package for Dragons Conquer America, a new setting we have created. This episode will serve as a prologue to the setting and as a way for us to playtest the mechanics.

It is also a way to raise awareness of our upcoming Kickstarter campaign that will fund the Episodes I & II of Dragons Conquer America, two full blown campaigns  that will shape the future of the setting.

What is Dragons Conquer America?

Dragons Conquer America (aka DCA) is a living fantasy role playing setting that is currently under development. It will take you back to the 16th Century when European invaders reached American soil and unleashed a genocidal conquest.

Dragons, magic… what’s going on here?

Even though we take into consideration real world events and cultures,  DCA is a fantasy setting. Magic is real and used in everyday life, and fantastic beasts such as Dragons and Feathered Serpents exert true influence in societies.

The magical elements will find their way to the mechanics of the game, and you, as a player, will be able to perform awesome supernatural deeds.

What system does it use?

Dragons Conquer America uses the RPC Engine, a cinematic and agile system that allows players to manage their luck.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
