(Aztec Deity)MACUIL-TOTEC

Also known as MONENEQUI

Patron God of the house of darts aka the Aztec armoury. For anyone who supports a certain London based football team, you can call him God of the Arsenal. Boom-boom.

The Aztecs pretty much denied all forms of technology, except for weapons of course. The warriors firmly believed their naff reed shields and clubs were gifts from the Gods and as such wouldn't dream of trying to repair damaged ones themselves .. even if they knew how to.

Every Aztec state had a house of darts, manned by priests and their female slaves who would repair the broken weaponry and armour. But it isn't as cushy as it sounds. All staff had their tongues cut out and learning how to read and write was forbidden incase they were tempted to take notes and reveal the secrets bestowed upon them by the Gods.

Further steps were taken to avoid divine wrath by building the bulk of the workshop beneath ground level so it didn't appear on the surface to be anywhere near as big as the local temple. The tip of an iceberg, so to speak. Sneaky.
