Thank you for the link, indeed a nice array of nasty creatures ...
By the way, I think I will write this setting "upside down", against most of the
usual cliches of Mesoamerica.
My San Ignacio will (seemingly) be a "little utopia" with wise politicians, reforms
working as planned and a comparatively satisfied majority of the population.
However, this success story will be balanced on a bayonet's point, with even
the slightest unexpected event (a volcano eruption, a militant indio sect, a cha-
rismatic political adventurer ...) able to trigger a desaster that could turn the
dream into a bloody nightmare.
And (almost) everyone is aware of this. The common people react with fatalism
("We have to accept what God will give us ...") and a certain dark streak of su-
perstition that is fascinated by death and destruction, and the decision makers
react with either paralysis ("Do nothing, so you cannot make any critical mista-
ke ...") or hectic reform programs ("We only have to solve these few problems ...").
All in all, a somewhat paranoid society that urgently needs more change to sur-
vive into the future, but fears any kind of change because it could destroy the
balance and ruin the entire "Experiment San Ignacio".
I think such an "utopia on the very edge of an abyss"-background could provide
the right "feeling" for Cthulhoid abventures, where the mythos is also just out of
sight most of the time, but could strike unexpected devastating blows at every
