Huacli was a nation in Central Maztica. Five of its six city-states were conquered by Nexal.[1]

GeographyEdit

Huacli was located west of Nexal, in a mostly barren, rocky land liberally strewn with mountains. However, the six city-states were located in a series of fertile valleys that better allowed for human habitation. These city-states included Ixtal, Pulco, and Otomi.[1]

Ixtal
Ixtal was the eastern- and southernmost of the Huacli city-states, located the closest to the Valley of Nexal. It was also the first Huacli city-state conquered by Nexal, in a quick, brutal campaign.[2]
Pulco
Pulco was the central city-state of Huacli. Shortly after Nexal conquered Ixtal, it used "diplomacy" (involving threats and bribes) to convince Pulco to join them.[2]
Otomi
Otomi was the northernmost of the Huacli city-states, located in a valley surrounded by harsh, mountainous terrain. These mountains contained copper, which the Otomi people mined and smelted into weapons and other items, making them the only Maztican society to have practical metal-working. Their location and copper weapons were the main reasons why they, alone of the Huacli city-states, remained unconquered by the Nexalans.[1]
Mictlatepec
A mysterious city perched on a mesa in the Huacli mountains. It was abandoned long ago, and strange creatures were said to live there.[3]

InhabitantsEdit

Huacli was inhabited solely by humans of the Maztican cultural group, meaning they were were tall and lean with angular features.[4] The Huacli spoke their own language, which was related to Nexalan, but with a different dialect for each city-state.[1]

GovernmentEdit

Each of the six city-states were ruled independently by a hereditary chieftain. Warriors and priests were highly respected as well.[1]

SocietyEdit

Huacli society was clan-based[1],
