RPG Antigua and Barbuda

Antigua and Barbuda are a pair of islands in the Lesser Antilles Archipelago of the Caribbean.

Despite it's high levels of tourism, the islands is best known for its sugar windmills, due to the extensive sugar plantations on the islands. Historically, Antigua is another microcosm of the slave trade in the Caribbean and colonial expansion. Antigua fits best into game campaigns that aren't necessary "squeaky clean" fantasy that's been sanitized from issues of Hegemony, slavery, subjugation, and genocide (there were Indogenous people there until 1100 — the Arahawks, who were displaced by the Caribs).

This is another short post. I'm not sure there's much I can say about any island in this chain, but I will do my homework on each one. I promise.
