Inferno of the Living
The Pax’ak Couatl
The vast jungles of Paxche are, in fact, the remains of an ancient civilization founded by the Couatl Kings. Their descendants call themselves the pax’ak couatl, or “people of the Couatl.” They worship the plumed serpents as the emissaries of the divine. The most devout lizardfolk move to the sacred city of Chelam Couatl to dedicate themselves to the Great Work — a spell meant to turn back time to the days of the Couatl Kings.
A group of heretics among the pax’ak couatl sought out the pyramid of Seven Birds, the first of the Couatl Kings, lost deep in the jungle. There, they hoped that they might use another method to restore their ancient empire: to capture and sacrifice demons and other evil creatures from across the planes to please the couatl, so they might return and bless the pax’ak couatl once more.
