Sailing, Stealing and Syphilis
Puru Hux Viceroyalty (Inca) an old indigenous empire that has been taken over by the Jaleña Empire. The viceroyalty is indirectly ruled by the Jaleña and so many positions of authority are still in the old Puru Hux nobility. These areas are are culturally close to the Jaleña but still hold many of the old traditions. Many small pockets are unconquered and still follow the old Puru Hux religion and way of life. The largest festival is the Removal of Corruption. This is when those deemed foul are brought to the central pyramid temple. The foul then “voluntarily” sacrifice themselves for the benefit of the cosmos. They trust an obsidian knife just below their ribs and then fall forward and let their blood run down the temple stairs. This is done to assert the authority of the priest-Kings over those who pose a threat.
