Ah, but would the Spanish have considered themselves evil? I think not, since the colonization of South-America was (among other things) condoned and justified by the Catholic church. This is quite interesting from a roleplaying-perspecive, don't you think?

Asdraguuhl mentiones finger pointing by those who come from countries with a colonial past. My own nation has quite a sad history in that respect. I'm glad to live in a timeframe in which cultural values have shifted. So, while I don't condemn a game that lets me play a role such as this, I would label a lot of the historical Conquistadores' actions as 'Very Nasty'.
