More posts and manga pages to follow

4 Comments

My apologies for not posting much these pat few days, just got very busy and trying to meet the deadline. Hopefully, I will be posting my works (additional pages from my manga) this weekend. ūüôā

The pages include the front page, chapter page and 4 additional content pages. As of now, this chapter will focus more about Greek mythology followed by Egyptian mythology, Norse mythology and lastly, Aztec Mythology.

Also, the following chapters will be about how these gods ( I won’t give any clue ūüėõ ) spend their days as mere mortals, how they see that the world they ruled before is very different from the world they are living with now.

Follow Kazuya, Lee Gyul, Lu Hsien and Tetsuo as they continue to live their lives with these said gods…

Aztec Rules

4 Comments

The Aztecs liked war so much that they were into it like 4-5 times a year.

There are two reasons: First is to let the other tribe knew how powerful they are. The losing tribe would pay them crops, gold or other valuable goods or what the Aztec demanded. Second reason was to get some people/warriors from the losing tribe to sacrifice to the Aztecs’ gods.

The Aztec people also enjoyed eating some human flesh from their victim. After the ritual was done (the sacrifice wherein the high priest will rip open the victim’s chest to get the still-beating heart) and the blood and heart were offered to their gods, the victim’s body will be given to the warrior who conquer them as a reward.¬† There were also some accounts that said even their royalties and kings prefer to eat the thighs and arms of their victims and boiled them in a pot or cauldron of potatoes, tomatoes and chillies!

Tlaloc

Tlaloc, Collection E. Eug. Goupil, 17th century

Tlaloc was an Aztec god of rain, fertility and water. Considered as a war-freak and unsatisfied god, when he’s in a bad mood he would send drought and famine in the land. To appease him, the Aztec priests would sacrifice children from 8 years and below. They would either cut their fingers or pull their fingernails one by one to make them cry. Their cries were like music to Tlaloc’s ears. Also, the priests would try to collect their tears also to be sacrificed to him.

Ode to Tezcatlipoca

Tezcatlipoca

Image via Wikipedia

“In the land of the sun, eagle and moon,

a strong tribe was destined to live soon.

To their warriors, fear was unknown,

killing and sacrificing was what they’d known.

The warriors were ruled by the gods,

they lived in harmony before they met the odds.

In the darkness, one of them embraces,

leaving the others in chaos until calamity arises.

The just and noble warrior was chosen for this quest,

but his brother, cunning and brave, could not resist the test.

This brother of his, with a mammoth strength yet with a sloth’s mind,

decided to join in without telling their kind…

Now, he is mortal and his soul, sold.

Tezcatlipoca was what he’s called.”

As we passed Wei’s noodle shop, we saw Tetsuo Harumaki carrying large trays of vegetables. We took the opportunity to bombard this young man who is the vessel of Tezcatlipoca, the Warrior god of the Aztecs and here are the results of our interview.

I AM Tetsuo Harumaki

PEOPLE WILL EASILY RECOGNIZE ME BECAUSE I eat a lot.

I THINK PEOPLE LIKE ME BECAUSE I’m a nice person

ATTITUDE PROBLEM? PEOPLE THINK THAT I’M nice and good.

I REALLY HATE IT WHEN there’s no food in the fridge.

DURING MY FREE TIME, I TEND TO sleep in the rooftop.

I WOULD LOVE TO WASTE MY TIME sleeping and helping Lu Hsien with his chores.

I AM EASILY UPSET WHEN someone hurt my friends.

I LIKE PEOPLE WHO are like my friends Lu Hsien, Kazuya and Lee Gyul.

WOMEN? I like someone whose brave and loving. Who knows what she wants and If she cannot have it, she’ll take it by force.

INTERVIEW:

HOW DID YOU FOUND OUT ABOUT TEZCATLIPOCA?
He’s always mad at me. I thought first he is the soul of my ancestors and he was angry because I’m weak.¬† I want us to be friends.

ARE YOU COMFORTABLE WITH TEZCATLIPOCA LIVING INSIDE YOU?
Yes! very much. But I think he’s not comfortable with me.

DID YOU FIND TEZCATLIPOCA AMUSING?
Yes because he’s so strong, so wise and he knows a lot. He’s my idol.

DID TEZCATLIPOCA ANNOY YOU?
No, I like him so much. But he always says that I’m so annoying.

… IF TEZCATLIPOCA WILL ASK YOU TO CHOOSE ANYTHING THAT HE HAD, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
I want to have a strand of his hair. I want to have something to remember him by.

DID YOU EVER THINK THAT ONE DAY TEZCATLIPOCA WILL LEAVE YOU?
No! I can’t! I’m not ready yet! He promised me we’ll be friends after the battle so he cannot leave me because were not yet friends.

IF YOU WILL BE GIVEN A CHANCE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN ZEUS, RA AND ODIN TO LIVE WITH YOU INSTEAD OF TEZCATLIPOCA, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
No, I don’t want to replace him, Even though he is always angry with me.

ANY MESSAGE FOR TEZCATLIPOCA?
I want us to be friends, I will do anything for you to like me, Oh great and noble one. (He wants me to call him like that)

ANY MESSAGE FOR LU HSIEN, TETSUO AND LEE GYUL?
