Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Domains: Earth, Law, Luck, Plant
Xipetotec, The Flayed Lord, is the god of agriculture and sacrifice. He allows others to flay off his red and diseased skin to reveal a golden body underneath. This is a metaphor for the process of growth in plants, the stalk emerging from the seed and the maize shucked from its husk, and spiritual growth – only by casting off one’s sins and flaws can a person hope to reach perfection.
Xipetotec encourages his followers to seek self-perfection. By identifying your flaws and working to overcome them you become a better person. His followers also seek to improve society through commitment to the greater good, and by reforming (or removing) those who shirk their duty to the deities and their fellow man.
