Mictlantec is one of the religions practiced in After the End. Mictlantec is part of the Mesoamerican religious group.

Description[]

"Mictlantec is a revival of old Aztec traditions for the new Age of the Dead Sun. The previous cycle ended in apocalypse with the near destruction of the sun god Huitzilopochtli in his struggle against the darkness. Death god Mictlantecuhtli was largely responsible for saving humanity, and is now considered the sun god." ― In-Game description of Mictlantec

History[]

In the chaos of the apocalypse, many ancient, and otherwise dead religions were revived as people feared their abandonment of the Old Gods brought about the end. Mictlantec was one such faith. While much of Mexico continued to practice Christianity (or their version of it, at least), those who were closer to the ancient Aztec in their lineage began forging the ritual blades...

While not a particularly widespread religion, the followers of Mictlan are powerful, claiming descent from the gods themselves and fielding vast, and extremely loyal, armies. Combine this with the fact the two largest Mictlantec kingdoms are soon to be united as one, and soon Sagrado Mexico shall tremble.

Mictlantec rulers may sacrifice prisoners to the gods, either individually or in a massive ceremony, and kings are expected to declare themselves Incarnates, or living gods. After a sacrificial ceremony, rulers may go on a vision quest. Rulers can raid infidel neighbors for loot or (if necessary) sacrifices. Women may own temple holdings. There is (and can exist) no religious head.

A temple holder of the Mictlantec faith is called a Priest (M) or Priestess (F).
