Chupayotl is located to the South-East (lower right corner).

Chupayotl is an underwater city located in South-Eastern Lustria. Formerly a surface Temple-city inhabited by Lizardmen it was engulfed and submerged by the sea. [3a]

A major nexus of the geomantic web, Chupayotl was an important part of the Lizardmen empire. Through it the Slann of Lustria were able communicate with their counterparts of Zlatlan and vice-versa.

History

The city started to sink slowly and the Slann were unsure if this development was according to the will of the Old Ones. As the situation worsened the Skinks decided that the population and artefacts were to be evacuated for their own safety.

The Saurus gathered their Slann masters and began to carry them away. However it was too late: a sudden earthquake led to a gigantic tsunami which engulfed the city.[1]

The city as lost below the waves around -4000 IC in the Age of Recovery. [3a]

It was a terrible blow for the Lizardmen; the loss of Chupayotl effectively divided the Lizardmen empire into two lesser realms. Both follow the Great Plan to the best of their knowledge and ability but are unable to coordinate their efforts.

Chupayotl didn't remain uninhabited for long; an unknown aquatic race colonised the city and now on occassion elements of it rise to drag sailors down to their doom.[3a]

It was sacked by a Dark Elf expedition led by Lokhir Fellheart in 2422 IC where he claiming the Helm of the Kraken. [2a]
