become masters of the planet, instead, Cortez will come, millions will die and the greatness of the
Mexicatl will be no more.  Savour this tiny triumph and consider its cost."   The Chameleon
then sprouts wings and flies off.   The priests consult together and decide that to avert this doom,
a special sacrifice is needed.... YOU.....  Until next time.
