Overview Edit

A human kingdom ruled by priests. Machaka uses great spider mounts and has both light infantry and heavy hoplites. Witch doctors and Black Sorcerers give Machaka a wide range of magical skills. Machakans dislike cold lands.

Background Edit

Machaka is an old sacral kingdom where the well-being of the land is thought to be dependent on the will of the king. The king is the highest priest of the kingdom, but should he fail in his duties, he is sacrificed and replaced by one of his numerous sons or brothers. The priests of the kingdom are the true rulers of the land. Religious ceremonies, judicial tasks and the gathering of intelligence are all performed by the Eyes, Ears, and Voices of the Lord. Only warfare is handed over to secular commanders. Machaka uses light infantry, archers and heavy hoplites second only to those of Arcoscephale. In the forests of Machaka, giant spiders are caught and used as mounts. One other area is left untouched by the priests: Magic. Simple witch doctors living outside villages grudgingly serve the priests. In the depths of the God Forest lies a lonely mountain filled with caves. Here resides the true power of Machaka - the Black Sorcerers, Sorceresses and their Spider Warriors. Machakans prefer hot lands.
