This is the teaser to the upcoming Children of a Dying Sun campaign.
"Weep, my people:
know that with these disasters
we have lost the Mexican nation.
The water has turned bitter,
our food is bitter!
These are the acts of the Giver of Life" - Aztec song circa 1530
It is the 1530's and the gods have forsaken the Empire of the Sun. It has been over a decade since painted warriors with obsidian claws and jaguar hides were subjugated by steel and the cross. A strange sickness afflicts the land as the pyramids of Tenochtitlan, once the focus of a civilization, are empty of priests, patrons, and sacrifices. Diligent missionaries tell tales of a God whose death was the final sacrifice and of a heaven that awaits the soldiers of Christ. The Mexica spirit, whose rays once shone from Lake Texcoco to the Lands of the Cloud People along the Great West Sea, is a dwindling flame before the winds of conquest and change. The sun rises each morning from the lands of the invaders but it is not the sun of Huitzilopochtli. The Mexica people are the children of a dying sun.
In this teaser, join Huemac, Luc, and Tenoch as they enlist support from the Mazahua people and discover an Aztec guerrilla fighter. Hunt a white tail stag, explore hidden forest paths, and make a hard decision.
Full campaign will include a mix of RPG and tactical gameplay, introducing several unique gameplay mechanics such as disease and logistics. Explore hidden jungle paths and Toltec ruins. Garner support from an eclectic mix of Mesoamerican peoples including the Mazahua, the Tepanec, and the Mixtec. Sacrifice Spanish captives to ward the sickness. Raid Tenochtitlan for weapons. And much more.
