Xiuhtotontli (zyhi-un-di-tont-ly)

Culture

Burn in reverse
— A religious philosophical saying that reflects birth from destruction

Demography and Population

Duskies adopted parts of ill-remembered Kang ideologies during the Mit'awi Chapaq period.   Modern duskies practitioners gained a supernatural control over fire which they used to maintain their way of life for centuries. But they were never able to rediscover the Kang's mastery over time.

Military

Fire Sages

Practitioners of this fire religion gain resistence to fire itself and other incredible powers like enhanced physical strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, perception and durability. The training and measures needed to become a sage are vigorous and demanding. They involve harmonising the energy through their bodies, practicing abstention and living on Fire Mountain, where energies are said to gather and flow into the world.

Divine Origins

Kang Origins

The Kang are the long lost time people whose fanciful exploitations have been the jealous inspirations for many songs and sonnets in the cultures of many would-be empires. When the Kang made contact with the duskies, they had happily capitulated, made common cause with the rest of the resisting corners and partly assimilated into their culture.   By mimicking what the ancient duskies knew (or what they thought they knew), it was thought that they would eventually recreate all of the Kang's powers. It was only partially successful.
