Being an angel hunter would have been hard enough in Mexico, but you never dreamed how hard it would be in the United States. Playing as a young Mexican angelero in 1940s Los Angeles, you’ll struggle to master your mysterious abilities to hunt, slaughter, and butcher “angels” to provide comfort for your community, while navigating the antagonism of a nation in the throes of war.

System Description:
Nahual is a tabletop roleplaying game of Mexican urban fantasy. In Nahual you play as shapeshifting nahuales that hunt angels to make a living. You run a changarro—a business—together and sell the angels you hunt as different types of products. Caught in the middle of an ancient feud, you struggle to find your place in a world of fantastical and overwhelming forces.

Nahual builds upon the Powered by the Apocalypse system used in Apocalypse World, Urban Shadows, Dungeon World and more. When your character’s actions trigger a move, the move tells you what happens in the fiction or you roll two six-sided dice to find out. Moves are designed to push the fiction forward, building tension and taking the story in unknown and exciting directions.

Nahual is set in the universe created by Mexican comic book artist Edgar Clément, first presented in the graphic novel Operación Bolivar and expanded in titles like Kerubim, Los Perros Salvajes (I & II) and other short stories. Nahual is yet another addition to that ever-growing universe, using elements from the comics and creating new ideas that add to this amazing setting.
