Nahual is a tabletop roleplaying game about brujos nahuales, humans of mestizo and indigenous ancestry that have the power to shapeshift into an animal form. These nahuales hunt angels to make a living, running a changarro—a business—together to sell the products they make from the bodies of the angels they have killed. These are stories about underdogs, struggling to find their place in a Mexican world of fantastical and overwhelming forces.
Inside you'll find:
- Eight unique playbooks, each built to help you create a nahual whose powers and personality are tied to a particular animal. These are: the Águila (Eagle), the Armadillo, the Jaguar, the Mono (Monkey), the Perro (Dog), the Serpiente (Snake), the Tlacuache (Opossum), and the Venado (Deer).
- Four different types of changarro. Each one unique in the kind of stories you will be telling and in the mechanics that help you tell those stories. They are: the Taco Truck, the Carnicería (Butchershop), the Cantina, and the Vecindad (Housing Unit).
- Innovative mechanics for managing six levels of power, from regular armed thugs to god-like beings!
- Instructions for running Nahual—threat levels, fighting as packs, angel hunting, creating NPCs and more—alongside eleven sample non-player characters.
