The core concept of the game is that luchadors are the heroes of the modern world. Where others chase the empty promise of greed or struggle to survive the endless grind, the luchador fights on as a champion of honor and glory. Only those with no fear can afford to stand fast against the forces of evil. Only they are worthy of being called heroes.
The tone of Luchador: Way of the Mask is light-hearted but not comedic. It is not an easy thing to maintain. The vibe of the game is somewhere between 70’s action films and 80’s television series. It’s a world where government agents must turn to an unaffiliated martial arts master to infiltrate a madman’s island stronghold during a fighting tournament to uncover his plans, and nobody thinks it odd. Look to Bond films, A-team episodes, Kung-Fu, and the like for inspiration. Obviously, the classic El Santo movies are the best place to start. The luchadors are the ones that stand between the strangeness and the safety of normal life.
