In ‘Meriwether‘, you play as Captain Lewis, the man President Thomas Jefferson selected and specially trained to accomplish this mission. You’ll join forces with your long-time friend and former commanding officer, William Clark, and with him you’ll form the Corps of Discovery, a party of hand-picked soldiers, interpreters, and hunters to whom you’ll trust your life every day of the 28-month journey.
Take command of the Corps of Discovery in this RPG based on the historic Lewis and Clark Expedition. It’s an impossibly dangerous expedition. The odds of even surviving the arduous trek are slim at best. But if you do succeed, your voyage will change the course of history, not just for the fledgling United States, but for the entire world.
The Corps of Discovery’s goals
- find an all-water route across North America, if one exists
- draw accurate maps of your voyage
- establish peaceful relations with as many Native American nations as you can
- identify plants and animals unknown to Western science
- make it back alive!
