In the Forgotten Realms, there occasionally exists a continent known as Maztica – based on our own Mesoamerica and, principally the Aztecs. Douglas Niles wrote a trilogy about it, and D&D published a box-set. I have only read the first of Niles’ trilogy, but I was captivated by the ‘Hairy Men of the Desert.’ As I understand it, centuries ago, dwarves and drow were battling underground and came up in Maztica. The dwarves are now hermits in the desert, while the drow secret control a major sect of Maztica’s religion.
This makes several Mazticans I have drawn so far.
L-R is Katarina Moonbeam Striker (a tabaxi sorceror), Quetza (a Tiefling sorceror), 4-Wind Jaguar’s Paw (a human barbarian), Manolo Himaras (a dwarven bard), and an unnamed hermit.
Going down memory lane as I rebuild my drawing library after a catastrophic hard drive crash. Uploading it here also helps ensure it won’t happen again! This was a D&D party from about ten years ago. I was just starting to shift from doing OoTs-style stick figures (Order of the Stick, by Rich Burlew) to hand-drawing.
This adventuring party never came up with a name.
