Xahutec was a Temple-City of the Lizardmen in Lustria. [1a] It is now known as the City of Echoes. [3b]


The city was created by the Fourth Spawning of the Slann before the World Pond was formed. [1d]

Following the collapse of the Warp Gates, the city is the first to fall to Daemons, its Mage-Priests slain and spawning pools tainted [2a] after Kairos Fateweaver opens a warp rift in the heart of the city, allowing Flesh Hounds to tear apart the Slann. [4a]

In -2423 IC a Lizardmen host approaches the ruins but is attacked by Daemons of Khorne, killing several Slann before the remaining Mage-priests can close the warp rift. [4b]

Shortly after being moved, the usually wise Lord Zhul gave contradictory orders, apparently unaware of his previous instructions and grew more and more angry with his servants. [1a]Finally the Skinks scribes consulted with Lord Tenoq who, with the other Mage-Priests of the city were away restoring Huatl. [1b] It was determined that not only could Tenoq not speak telepathically to Zhul but that the Lord became confused and irritated when his palanquin was facing the ruins of Tlencan. A expedition to investigate was sent, made up of the first cohort of green-backed Skinks and led by Skink Chief Quzipantuti.[1c][3a]

There he discovered that the sacred chamber was inhabited by a Xlanax (a Daemon Prince[3a]), transfixed by a elven blade. The skinks withdrew to the alter of Sotek and called upon the snake go for assistance against the entity. An aspect of Sotek manifested and devoured the Xlanax - and at the same time Zhul also died but ascended to become a revered one. The lords remains were ceremonially bedecked in gold and prepared with resin and set to rest. [1c]

Since the city fell to Daemons, it has been vacated by the Lizardmen but they maintain a strong guard on its perimeter. [3b]

From 2519 IC, Daemon legions march out each time the Chaos Moon rises and although the Saurus manage to defeat them, it is at a high cost. [3c]


  • Green-backed Skinks: The First Cohort is notable for their bravery, endurance and willingness to even swim across salt water. [1c]
