A flash flood in the Arizona desert brings Nastas, a lone Navajo brave, into the national spotlight. His heroic efforts to save a young girl trapped in the melee leave him wounded, and Spirits lead him to an oasis cultivated by Keane, a white-man-turned-shaman whose place in the Navajo tribe is becoming increasingly important. Meanwhile, Keane's brother, Archer, encounters a series of mysterious figures and events in Ireland, where he is spending a semester at Trinity College. Both brothers are unaware that they are inextricably linked as the reincarnated Little War Gods of Navajo legend, and that dark forces in a rogue Christian sect (led by the fundamentalist seductress, Sibella) and the Navajo Spirit world are determined to harness the Gods for their own ends. Each player is eventually led to Black Rock -- the sacred point of contact between the old world and the new -- where both sides are confronted with a third, terrifying force. In a step beyond the typical "good versus evil" construct, Little Red War Gods explores the more potent conflict between "good versus good"; when both sides of a holy war are fighting in the name of their own gods, who will resort to evil ends in order to champion what's "right"?
