BoL Foes: Izatacli – The Sorcerers Of Tlactoztlan

Wherein your humble scribe presents a set of opponents for his Mesoamerican themed setting for Barbarians of Lemuria.

The sorcerers of Tlactoztlan, when spoken of at all, are know by the appellation Izatacli, the white-headed ones. Like the white-crowned parrots whose feathers comprise their distinctive headdresses, Izatacli are aloof and distant from the world. As magicians, Izatacli are possessed of eldritch wisdom and the means to exert their wills over reality, a fact that makes them terrifying to the average Tlactozotl, and potentially terrible foes for those who are not consumed with fear. Izatacli seldom interact with Texotli or Coztli, preferring either the company of their own kind or else the solitude that allows them to pursue their magical studies more effectively.

Below are stats for Izatacli Rabble and Izatacli NPCs. Individual Izatacli Villains, like Nezatl Xomec, are unique and should be created as needed by the Game Master.

    I love the concept of “rabble-wizards.” You see it in Howard (I’m thinking “The People of the Black Circle”) and Lieber many times, but I can’t think of a system other than BOL that really emulates the idea.

      I know what you mean. Other than the Acolyte & Medium “monsters” in Basic D&D (Moldvay, at least) I’m hard pressed to come up with other “rabble” spell casters. Hooray for BoL, eh? 🙂
