The Nobles of Mexica
Prior to the invasion of Meso-America by Cortez and the Hispanic Conquistadors, the Aztec landscape was composed of various consistently warring city-states, particularly the Mexica, Tlaxcalan, and ever holding on Tarascan empires. In the year 1501, Mexica has never been stronger, having the largest military, the most gold, and control over the most territory in modern-day Mexico. However, despite this military might and fearsome history, Mexica faces problems that threaten to cripple the empire from within. Inabilities to feed an increasingly large population, a power-hungry elite, combative neighbors, and a religious system that consistently demands more from the King threaten to end the growth that Mexica has seen in the past century.
Now the power of the state is vested in you, the economic, political, military, and religious elites of Tenochtitlan to finalize what your ancestors have left behind. Will you unify all of the empires under your own and watch your people thrive, or will you witness the end of Aztec civilization?
Nobles of Mexica, welcome to the chaos of an Empire at its peak.
