Yes, things here haven't really changed, but you have. You've seen comrades die in droves, perforated with Gatling gun fire, confettied by artillery shells, the dark things dragging away their corpses, and the wanton sac & ruin left by the Northern army.

This is a weird western set in the northern frontier of a Mexico that never was during Polk's War combined with the black metal aesthetic of Shadow of the Demon Lord.

The opening adventure is the Battle of Chapultepec mashed up with Worms of the Earth.
