The Battle for Turtle Island

What would have happened if the Medicine (magic) Native Americans had tried to use against the white settlers had been real?  What if the Ghost Dance really could have protected Indian warriors from the settlers' bullets?  And what if the priests that came to the Americas had really had the power of God (magic) behind them in their attempts to "convert" the savages?

This is the basic premise for the game The Battle for Turtle Island that I'm currently creating.  The setting is the Americas when white settlers first came to America, and although historical in nature, the game asks the question, what if magic had been real?

If you'd like to help get this game going, you can contribute to the Kickstarter at
