The main city of the game setting.
Atoyatl was founded by a noble family that fled the earliest conquest of the burgeoning Empire. For the past few centuries Atoyatl was a free city that traded with the Ocean Folk, the Peninsular Folk and the various states which are now part of the Empire.
Recently, Atoyatl’s outlying region was destroyed during a conflict between The One God and The Many. This catastrophe created the Gamble and has wreaked havoc on the sustenance, economy, population and politics of Atoyatl.
