I suppose that's really up to you. Emperor will definitely be clear for almost anyone playing but it does have some connotations of its own. I can see though how Inka might be a little jarring, have you maybe considered just making up your own word? (perhaps something similar to inka)

I drew some stuff!


So, the above picture is of a wealthier Mathremayan boy. It isn't really finished (I think his head is too big, his unfinished hands are too small, and some other proportions may be off but whatever), and I've gotten frustrated enough with it that I just decided to post it as is. I hope it conveys some idea of what a higher class Mathremayan citizen might look like.


This is a funeral rite of those who have fallen in battle (maybe?). Dressed in the garments of the sunbird, they spread fire from their flame-tempered cloaks and dance over the cadavers to cremate them in an elaborate ritual. Sometimes, the life of the dancer is taken in the process as their cloaks set them ablaze - this is considered an acceptable and noble means to pass into the spirit realm with the dead. I hoped to incorporate a hint of steampunk but predominantly stick with an Andean/Mesoamerican theme.

I'll be doing more drawings as I go. I hope you guys like them. smile

EDIT: Also, this is my first attempt at clothing wrinkles, so bear with me.

Yes, I like these a lot.  They give a lot of 'feel'.

Old, evil, twisted, damaged, and afflicted.  Orbis non sufficit.Thread Murderer Extraordinaire, and supposedly pragmatic...\"That is my interpretation. That the same rules designed to reduce the role of the GM and to empower the player also destroyed the autonomy to create a consistent setting. And more importantly, these rules reduce the Roleplaying component of what is supposed to be a \'Fantasy Roleplaying game\' to something else\"-Vreeg
