Summary: Miteecallaa is the underworld, the land of the dead and cursed home of demons. The labyrinthian tunnels and caverns twist away from the common . . .

Changed:

< The teeth are anchored into the solid basalt as if they were placed there while the stone was still molten lava a feat far beyond the skill of the various tribes of Ixxiax. The first teeth are the tallest standing a full 30ft and curving inward, the teeth decrease in size as one approaches the Maw of Miteecallaa where the final entrance is again flanked by two 30ft teeth forming a dangerous archway.

< A large opening in the black basalt of Ixichuastul leading to a near vertical shaft that leads straight down into Miteecallaa there are no known records of any living person attempting the journey down into Miteecallaa, much less anyone coming out. What is known that the Maw of Miteecallaa is lined with great veins of obsidian and crystals, protruded outward and upwards, offerings sent into Miteecallaa must be carefully deposited into the maw to avoid them being slashed to ribbons by these protrusions. After the fall through the Maw is a large still lake that will birth those offerings delivered to it, into their new life in Miteecallaa.

< Miteecallaa is the underworld, the land of the dead and cursed home of demons. The labyrinthine tunnels and caverns twist away from the common entrance point of the Maw of Miteecallaa stretching miles down into the volcanic rock bellow [[Ixxiax]].
< Long ago when the demons came ashore in Ixxiax they were first met as emissaries of the gods, but soon their nature was revealed and war was made upon them, after years of horrible struggle they were pushed back to their last fortress at the base of [[Ixichuastul]], surrounded and vastly outnumbered the demons attempted to summon a portal home, the great priests of Ixxiax intervened and cast them down into the darkness below, many brave warriors charged after them vowing to never give them rest even in their banishment.

The Teeth of the Dragon

Long and slightly curved like the fangs of a great cat, the Teeth of the Dragon guard the final approach to Miteecallaa. The teeth range between 10ft and 30ft tall, the inner edge tappers to a serrated edge that still retains a razor like sharpness. There is much debate among the few scholars who have seen the teeth as to weather that are the teeth of some long dead great dragon, or polished and sharpened obsidian shards.

The teeth are anchored into the solid basalt as if they were placed there while the stone was still molten lava a feat far beyond the skill of the various Tribes of Ixxiax. The first teeth are the tallest standing a full 30ft and curving inward, the teeth decrease in size as one approaches the Maw of Miteecallaa where the final entrance is again flanked by two 30ft teeth forming a dangerous archway.

It is the custom of the Ixxiax tribes that after an earthquake or other ill omen they travel to the teeth and sacrifice a person upon each tooth, as such it is not uncommon to find wild around the teeth gnawing at the remains of those sacrificed. The ever growing piles of bones at the base of each tooth is littered with golden trinkets the tribes consider to be cursed and so they sit there bloodstained and avoided.

The Maw of Miteecallaa

A large opening in the black basalt of Ixichuastul leading to a near vertical shaft that leads straight down into Miteecallaa there are no known records of any living person attempting the journey down into Miteecallaa, much less anyone coming out. What is known that the Maw of Miteecallaa is lined with great veins of obsidian and crystals, protruded outward and upwards, offerings sent into Miteecallaa must be carefully deposited into the maw to avoid them being slashed to ribbons by these protrusions. After the fall through the Maw is a large still lake that will birth those offerings delivered to it, into their new life in Miteecallaa.

The Darkness of Miteecallaa

Miteecallaa is the underworld, the land of the dead and cursed home of demons. The labyrinthian tunnels and caverns twist away from the common entrance point of the Maw of Miteecallaa strtching miles down into the volcanic rock bellow Ixxiax.

Long ago when the demons came ashore in Ixxiax they were first met as emissaries of the gods, but soon their nature was revealed and war was made upon them, after years of horrible struggle they were pushed back to their last fortress at the base of Ixichuastul, surrounded and vastly outnumbered the demons attempted to summon a portal home, the great priests of Ixxiax intervened and cast them down into the darkness below, many brave warriors charged after them vowing to never give them rest even in their banishment.

Each year this Vow is renewed, the dead warriors of all the tribes are brought to the Maw of Miteecallaa, adorned with their armor and weapons they are sent into Miteecallaa to do their last duty. It is said that the magics that rent the Maw of Miteecallaa open still swirl around it, and as the corpses of the dead warriors fall through the maw they are revivified and wander Miteecallaa in an endless battle with the Demons.
