简介

瓦克里Huacli:遥远之地The Distant Land
Maztica nimbral
【所属 位面】马兹特克大陆Maztica
【类   型】国家
【简   介】瓦克里Huacli 位于马兹特克大陆西海岸,该国由以奥托米城为首的六座城邦组成(其余五座都曾为耐克苏帝国的附庸),每座城邦能召集万人左右的军队(其中一半为正规军)。
瓦克里人的血统为马兹特克人犬戎混血。奥托米城是马兹特克社会唯一与犬戎建立了社会和贸易联系的城邦,也是全马兹特克唯一掌握了实用性金属加工技术的本土势力,依靠冶铜能力,他们得以抵御了耐克苏帝国的入侵并压制其余城邦。

瓦克里Huacli:遥远之地The Distant Land

  这个国家由六个城邦组成,其中有五个是 耐克苏帝国Nexal 的前附庸。而第六座城邦 奥托米城Otomi 则从未被征服过。随着耐克苏人势力的瓦解,全瓦克里人的城市都在奥托米城的领导下再次联合了起来,以抵御任何后续侵略的图谋。
This nation is composed of six city-states, five of which are former vassals of Nexal. The sixth, Otomi, has never been conquered. With the breaking of Nexalan power, all of the Huacli cities have banded together again, under the leadership of the Otomis, to resist any further attempts at subjugation.

  虽然他们周围的土地大多贫瘠,但瓦克里人居住在 马兹特克大陆Maztica 西海岸的一系列肥沃山谷中。在一年之中的大部分时间降雨量都相当少,但在雨季,土壤中富集的水分足以全年滋养作物。
While most of the land around them is barren, the Huacli people dwell in a series of fertile valleys along the west coast of Maztica. They receive little rainfall for most of the year, but enough water collects in the soil during the rainy season to provide a crop for the full year around.

  城市之间的小鹿崎岖而陡峭,但即便如此,他们之间仍然存在大量的贸易和旅行。虽然几座城市离海洋很近,但瓦克里人极少驾驶独木舟冒险进入那片广阔的水域。
The trails between the cities are rough and steep, but there is a great deal of trade and travel among them anyway. Though several of their cities are very near to the ocean, the Huacli very rarely use their canoes to venture onto that vast water.

人类族群Human Population

Regional Borders

  瓦克里人是马兹特克人与 犬戎the Dog People 基因的顽强结合。这种血统在北方的奥托米人中最为明显——他们与沙漠部落们存在许多贸易与社会联系。
The Huacli are a hardy mix of Maztican stock liberally combined with the genes of the Dog People. This becomes most apparent among the northerly Otomi, who have many trading and social ties to the desert tribes.

语言LANGUAGE:

  瓦克里人讲自己的语言。每座城市有不同的方言,但全国的所有成员都能理解。对于讲 耐克苏语Nexalan 的人而言,瓦克里语有大约有10%的内容可以理解(反之亦然)。
The Huacli speak their own language. The dialect from each city is distinct, but speech is understandable among all members of the nation. Huacli is about 10% understandable to someone who speaks Nexalan (and vice versa).

社会结构SOCIAL STRUCTURE:

  瓦克里社会高度以氏族为基础,每座城市的首领都是血统继承的。即便是对马兹特克的父权制社会来说,男性对女性的支配地位依然令人惊讶。战士和祭司是最受尊敬的个体。
The Huacli society is a very clan-based structure, with the chieftainship of each city a matter of heredity. Men are dominant over women to a surprising extent, even for the patriarchal societies of Maztica. Warriors and priests are the most highly regarded individuals.

  因他们的英勇而赢得独立的奥托米人,已在整个国家占据了领导地位。此外,他们将铜冶炼为武器的能力——全马兹特克本土唯一实用的金属加工技术——令他们在于自己的表亲以及曾经入侵他们的耐克苏人的竞争中占据了优势。
The Otomis, because of their heroic and well-earned independence, have assumed positions of leadership over the whole nation. In addition, their ability to smelt copper into weapons—the only practical metal-working native to Maztica—has given them an advantage over their own cousins as well as the Nexalans who once invaded them.

经济状况ECONOMY:

  瓦克里城市之间存在着相当活跃的贸易,不过这种贸易很少延伸到这个国家之外。内陆部落收集黑曜石、黄金和羽毛,来从沿海部落换取珊瑚、鱼、贝壳和鲨鱼牙。这里最珍贵的商品是奥托米人加工成武器的铜。其中一些已经被分配给了其他瓦克里人,但大部分仍然处于奥托米人令人嫉妒的控制之下。
Vigorous trade occurs between the cities of the Huacli, though little of it extends beyond them. Obsidian, gold, and feathers are collected by the inland tribes, and exchanged for coral, fish, shells, and sharksteeth from those along the shore. The most precious commodity here is the copper that the Otomis work into weapons. Some of these have been distributed to the other Huacli, but most remain under jealous Otomi control.

财富与宝藏VALUES and TREASURES:

  在瓦克里人中,以黄金、珊瑚和玉石制作的艺术品并不罕见。奥托米人可以用铜制作一些相当有效的魔法武器,等效于+1或+2刃器。利爪魔法和羽毛魔法在此地并未取得在耐克苏人和 帕伊特人Payit 中那样的地位,但偶尔能够在本地看见这些形式的护身符。
Works of art fashioned in gold, coral, and jade are not uncommon among the Huacli. The Otomis can make some fairly effective magical weapons in copper—effectively a +1 or +2 blade. Hishna and pluma have not achieved the status that they have among the Nexala and the Payit, but nevertheless occasional talismans in these forms can be seen here.

宗教与禁忌RELIGION and TABOOS:

  瓦克里人崇敬 马兹特克诸神Maztican gods 整个神系全部神灵,而不偏向某位神明而排斥其祂神明。他们仍然向那些传统上索要人牲的神明献祭,并且在每个主要城市每天至少举行一次。
The Huacli worship the full pantheon of Maztican gods, with no preference toward one to the exclusion of the others. They still practice sacrifice to those gods who have traditionally demanded human lives, with at least one performed every day in each of the major cities.

  在瓦克里人的思维模式中,耐克苏的怪物已被与外国入侵者混淆了。因此,两者都被认为是令人发指、非自然的敌人,应以迅速的死亡来解决。
The monsters of Nexal have been confused with the foreign invaders in the Huacli mindset. Thus, both are considered heinous and unnatural enemies, to be greeted with swift death.

战争WARFARE:

  每座城市都能召集一支规模相当大的部队——大约10000人,其中一半是正规军。他们能熟练使用所有马兹特克武器,并包含相当规模的美洲豹勇士和雄鹰勇士。
Each city can muster a fairly good-sized force—about 10,000 men, half of them regular. They are skilled with all Maztican arms, and will include sizeable companies of Jaguar and Eagle Knights.
