Understand the society and culture of the Aztecs through Icxitontli, a 17-year-old Aztec warrior. To be honored in Aztec society, a man must capture at least one enemy, to not do so by the age of 15 was a disgrace. Icxitontli has not yet captured an enemy and must prove he is a courageous warrior. He is determined to bring honor to his family by capturing an enemy. Go into battle with Icxitontli, learn whether or not he will become an honored man, and discover what it was like to be an Aztec warrior.
