Storyboard Text

  • This is painful but it's still worth it!
  • Gods create life through sacrificing themselves daily by spilling their own blood
  • We are finished with this temple, lets build one more for the gods!
  • The Aztecs built huge temples to worship the gods, because they want to pay the gods back.
  • Why are you dragging me, I'm innocent!
  • To further pay the God's back, the Aztecs regularly  raid and capture tribespeople from neighboring areas, because they don't want to sacrifice their own people
  • It's because we have to give some blood to our Gods, so we are capturing you and killing you.
  • The captured warriors are sacrificed at the top of the temples having their still-beating hearts removed from their chests
  • The hearts and blood offerings are cooked - the "essence" of the offering makes it way to the Gods
  • After the sacrifices, the Gods will continue making new life for the Aztecs!
