Blood on the Sand: Aztec vs. Zande

Turning to our more familiar warriors, our Aztecs had some of the most unique weaponry we've seen on the show. The role of the Aztecs in the history of the North American continent can't be overlooked. While the conquest of Aztec lands at the hands of Spanish conquistadors is often cited as the moment that Western guns, germs, and steel proved their worth, for it's easy to forget the martial superiority the Aztecs enjoyed in their heyday.

Our Aztec warrior is notable for the obsidian weapons he's carrying- they are sharpest weapons we've seen yet on the show. Properly made, glass knives can carry an extremely thin edge (only a few molecules thick in some cases), but they are brittle. It's an interesting trade-off in the design of the weapon, but in a fight with so little armor on each side, our Aztec's only got to worry about getting past the Zande warrior's weapons. Additionally, the sling and atlatl our Aztec warrior carries give him more options at a distance than our Zande's bow and shorter range throwing knife, the Kpinga.

This proved to be a high-stakes, fast-paced, and very close fight in our simulations, and I think you'll enjoy the results.

That said, be sure to check out twitter-Geoff, Dr. Dorian, and I are all there, and Big G and I usually try to live tweet along with the episode, West Coast times. You can find us as @GeoffDesmoulin, @DrDorian, and @MaxGeiger. Also, check out some of the other stuff we're working on! Geoff's got a website with some sweet shirts, Doc's delicious drink, Dox (say that 5 times fast!). Also, today is the day the DVD of Season 1 finally drops! Do us a solid and pick it up here: http://bit.ly/DW-DVD

Until next time, morituri te salutant!
