When I wrote/drew the first sacrifice in this scene I didn't think people would assume that was Teo. I decided to run with it. Sorry for the radio silence there.

I took a little more time setting up the inks on this page and I think it paid off pretty well. I'm posting a little later than usual but that's more because I ran into a lot of minor technical difficulties rather than needing significantly more time for the extra work. also because I forgot to add a bunch of small but important things here and remembered them each time I thought I was finished.

Thanks for reading and I'll see y'all next week.

Fascinating. We are finally approaching what appears to be the end of at least one of your major story arcs with Teo. I wonder if there will be any last minute surprises, or twists in the story line, and if not, just what will the lesson of this story be? Will we perhaps catch a glimpse of the after world as Teo steps into it? Or will Teo wake up and kick ass!?! I have a feeling the next couple of updates may be big ones!

Yes! He is going to wake up, break the priest's arm and sacrifice him instead >:D

Actually, had there ever been a case when the sacrifice successfully struggled?

Culturally, it was considered an honor to be sacrificed to the Gods. In this case, Teo is getting treatment afforded a high profile prisoner of war.

While Teo's ultimate goal is to get to Xibalba, he wants to take a rather specific route. He wants to face the Gods on his own terms, as a challenger.

Ah, alright then. That makes a lot of sense and IS kind of obvious. Sorry.
Still, I doubt everyone was super happy about getting killed but maybe not since this kind of thing is usually set in stone for 99% of the population. Perhaps.
Also, I wonder how many knew the whole process is pretty much mystical BS.

No worries. It's impossible to really know for sure what % of people were completely on board with being sacrificed.

I assume everyone at the top of the mystical BS food chain knew it was BS.

But, even kings and lords would sacrifice blood. Specifically drawn from the penis or the inside of the throat. This was considered the most valuable blood to offer. So I have to assume the nobility was also largely in the dark about it.

Probably it was just the folks that understood astronomy well enough to time solar eclipses.
