Archaeologists have discovered the remains of a city, thought to date back to one thousand years ago. The team were searching for a fabled ‘White City’, also referred to as the City of the Monkey God, in an area of pristine jungle. One of the artefacts found in the initial survey is the stone effigy of a were-jaguar. See it, and more stunning images on the National Geographic website.
Tomorrow night (12th July) was probably not a great night to promise to release scene two of chapter one since I’ll be running the J.P. Morgan Chase in Battersea Park and won’t get home until late. So here it is, a little earlier than promised.
The PDF version includes scenes one and two : New Fire – Chapter 1 – Scenes 1 and 2
Scene two introduces us to our hero Heart of the Jaguar (Ocelotyolotl in Nahuatl). His friends call him Jaguar. Jaguar’s closest friends are Obsidian Crocodile (Itzcipactli) and Precious Flower (Tlazoxochitl or possibly Quetzalxochitl depending on the context).
