Conquistador (Spanish: [koŋ.kis.t̪a'ð̞oɾ]) (meaning "Conqueror" in the Spanish language) is the term used to refer to the soldiers, explorers, and adventurers who brought much of the Americas and Asia Pacific under Spanish colonial rule between the 15th and 17th centuries, starting with the 1492 settlement established in modern-day Cuba by Christopher Columbus.
The first of the Conquistadors to sail the vast Pacific Ocean was Miguel López de Legazpi in 1564 and arrived in the Philippine archipelago on 1565.

 Conquistador Notes
When the results were tabulated, it was found that those who received the non-glossy counters rated them marginally higher than those who had received the glossy ones -- but the difference was satistically insignificant, to the point where two or three extreme responses either way could have been responsible for the difference.
When Conquistador was first published, it met with a mixed reception on the part of S&T subscribers, primarily, I think, because S&T subscribers preferred hard World War II military games, and Conquistador was rather anomalous from their point of view.
It is gratifying that, despite this, Conquistador has remained a steady seller for seven years and continues to be popular with multi-player gamers.

 Conquistador (Beast, X-Men foe)
As a power source, he sought an experimental nuclear reactor/solar generator, but he lacked the means to sneak into the tightly guarded base and escape with it.
I think he could have easily used his telepathic powers to force the Conquistador to alter the device's circuitry, OR perhaps he was using an experimental device that briefly granted him telekinetic powers.
It was kept at a laboratory under supervision by government troops until stolen by the Beast for the Conquistador, who planned to use it to project devastating energy across the planet, after which all governments would surrender to him and he could conquer the world.

One of the most nauseating items I have ever seen in the El Conquistador was the one printed on November 18 of this year, the one by Armando Castellanos which used repulsive and hateful language about you.
Castellanos has a basic constitutional right to air his views publicly and El Conquistador should be commended for exercising restraint and publishing his tawdry letter in its entirety.
After the dissemination of the November 18 issue of El Conquistador, I have received numerous phone calls and three letters from my constituents- all condemning the vitriolic nature of that letter.

 Sponenberg's May, 2003 Update to the Conquistador Article
The fore-mentioned Conquistador article was published about 1998, and at the time was the most recent version of Sponenberg's North American Colonial Spanish Horse.
Colonial Spanish type is very rare among modern feral mustangs, and the modern Bureau of Land Management (BLM) mustangs should not be confused with Colonial Spanish horses, as the two are very distinct with only a few exceptions to this rule.
The ancestors of these horses were instrumental in the ability of the Spanish Conquistadors to conquer the native civilizations.

 The SF Site Featured Review: Conquistador
Once the wardens have twigged to the Rolfe's secret, they're abducted to New Virginia, and the book morphs to a political thriller -- Draka-like Elements are intent on subverting the (mostly) benevolent oligarchy that rules the new New World.
One of the strengths of Conquistador is that all sides are drawn warts and all -- no shining heroes or dastardly villains here (well, a couple of the latter) -- just people playing with the hands they're dealt.
And the new New World is a fabulous wish-fulfillment fantasy, that almost everyone who's gotten a bellyful of the downside of civilization has had -- but here worked out thoughtfully and carefully.
