From publisher blurb:
In 1492 Christopher Columbus sailed westward from Europe in search of a trade route to the East Indies. What he found instead was a previously-unknown continent with its own inhabitants and resources. European contact soon led to conquest, brutality, and genocide.
But what if it didn’t happen that way?
What if instead the Indians — bolstered by an accidental discovery and greater numbers — were better able to fend off the encroaching Europeans; sparking war in the New World, and intense examination of European colonialism in the Old, as the efforts of a religious splinter group take hold?
Then you would enter the world of The Guns of Hispañiola. This first offering of Alternative Vectors — alt-history mini-campaigns based on the Cepheus Engine and the Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game (OSFRPG) — allows players to become part of a history where the Native Americans, rather than succumbing to disease and superior technology, were instead able to fight the invaders.
Though tiny, it’s packed with information and play mechanics; including an overview of events in the New World; an abbreviated character generation method; tables for animal encounters, terrain movement modifiers, and unforeseen wilderness events; and armor, weapons, and equipment lists.
Alternative Vectors. Giving you the power to reshape history.
