I had an argument with one of my players about panderans in World of Warcraft (as you may know, this is a race of anthromorphic pandas with a pseudo-Chinese culture) and, inspired by his words, decided to have the party's next adventure take them to a mountain populated by a culture of alpaca-people with an Inca like civilization.

Need more ideas for Incan alpaca people.

Well yeah there was. It's just those are the only elements any of us are really familiar with. I'm sure someone else could help us.

I happen to know Incas were prolific slingers, and to this day there is a big meetup in the Andes where people with slings stand on opposite sides of a huge ravine and toss rocks at each other.

Incan slings were made from alpaca wool and were actually used in place of whips for herding alpaca, since climbing after them tends to be fruitless. They would toss rocks in their vicinity and the alpacas would get spooked from the noise and move.

Also, Alpaca come in two breeds, Suri and Huacaya. Huacaya are the most common, and they're the fluffy, poofy ones (depicted in link related).

Suri are much rarer, and have a higher quality fiber that grows in downward, dreadlock-esque spirals. Pic related.

In Inca culture, only nobility could wear Suri due to its rarity and value. Have lower classes be Huacaya, and upper classes be Suri, with some fantastic racism between them. Have the Suri be a standard of beauty, and young Huacaya women spend ludicrous sums on hair products to imitate a suri's coat.

They're very intelligent, and personality varies from animal to animal, kinda like people. Overall, they're inquisitive, intelligent, and flighty. They're comfortable around who and what they know and uncomfortable around what they don't. Males can be aggressive as fuck agaisnt eachother- we have our breeding male segregated from the other non-neutered males because he'll fight them. He'll go like 1 v 10 and kick all their asses, alternating them like there's a fucking queue involved. He also castrated one of them with his teeth, shit was insane.

As for spitting, it's a more passive-aggressive way to fight. Spitting usually starts with a puff of air, and is a warning- 'That's my food' or 'get the fuck out of my face, bitch'. When they really want to spit, they'll bring up cud from their bellies. This is kinda like someone slapping or pushing someone else- not really fighting, but their exerting authority. Females usually stop here, males usually go into neck-wrestling.

Side note, when males fight, they'll use razor-sharp fighting teeth to clip ears and nip at competing males' nuts.

They rather liked roads and mountain fortresses. Built loads of them. This was in part because an independent inca realm formed after the initial spanish conquest, in the interior and their entire society was based around fighting the Spanish. They modernized and adopted muskets too. Still got wiped in the 18th century.

Anyhow, Incas did shit like sacricing kids to mountains, deforming their skulls in the shape of the mountain they were to be sacrificed on. Their priests and kings practised mummification and their entire agricultural base was based on different types of potatoes.
Most villages were a fortified mountain hold with agriculture on the slopes, and led by village elders.

Well, another anon pointed out that there already exists a clear delineation between "common" alpaca and a rarer but more sought after breed of alpaca with wonderful soft dreadlock hair.

So you don't really need slaves to make fur, you just have a naturally-occurring rift between alpacafolk whose fur is more desired by customers.

And Alpacafolk clearly shave themselves to make their own goods. It could perhaps be seen as a sign of work ethic (or poverty) to be partially or wholly shaven.

I think it wouldn't be slaves, but instead they shave criminals, and the fur can be sold off for whatever reasons. If the crime is against the state, the government keeps the pelt, but if the damages were against an individual, they keep it.
Minor crimes would not be total body shaving, but instead parts of the body get sheared. The loss of fur would be very shameful.

The poorest alpaca are totally shaved and since they need to shave regularly to subsist their fur never grows to be long and more expensive.

Common alpaca shave themselves more rarely and tend to do it in bands so nearby fur hides it or in decorative patterns.

There's no need to make every animal into an intelligent race. Things get wacky in that direction and the food chain gets awfully dark. There should be regional chimeras.

For example, in the south you could mix armadillo, wildcat, and the giant bats into a reasonably social and iconic short-race. They would have banded, plated backs and bare-skin wings good mainly for long gliding or short flapping distances if given favorable winds and updraft. Their little eyes are reasonably good in extremely low light, due to their high reflectivity and disproportionately large pupils, and are well protected by their small size and long lashes from debris and

They favor dug dens (that they make with the two manipulator claws at the end of their wings and their heavy digging claws at the end of their powerful feet) and cave systems, are great swimmers (though spend their time avoiding the water due to predators), and mostly eat grubs, insects, and all manner of fruit.

And so forth.

You can have catpeople, armadillopeople, batpeople and still end up with a unique race with lots of niches left to fill both ecologically and narratively. Bloat should and can be avoided.

We use zero to mean much more than "nothing". We use it as a placeholder.

See, without zero, 1, 10, 100 and 100,000 would all look the goddamn same. But we decided that each digit in a number represents how many ones, ten, hundred, thousands, etc the number contains. And, of course, zero allows us to say "nothing in the tens column!"

Incidentally, the likely reason the Inca (and maybe their predecessors) needed to invent zero-as-placeholder and also complex book-keeping languages is because they were basically communists.

Everybody was required to pay a set tax (beggars and the truly destitute could pay in body lice), as well as have their men organized into work forces. In return, the rulers provided food in famine times, protection, AQUEDUCTs, clothing, etc. They didn't even use money, except when trading with other cultures.

This was probably encouraged by the fact that they were living on a bunch of goddamn mountains. So each strata was good for different sorts of agriculture, and bad for most other stuff, so that they were going to have to do a whole lot of trading anyway. The Incan rulers just centralized it.

Probably by walking around, not really finding any birds, or finding but having them bugger off while the MGs were set up, and then finally just blasting all their ammo right into the nearest bush in frustration before going home.

Remember this is South America, with the worlds largest spiders and jaguars and snakes and shit, Incan body lice were as large as houses and small groups of murderous hobos would have to team up to have a chance of taking even one of them down.

Could always try all that but in a new browser type that has not went attempted to go to that site. Most people these days tend to already have two or more browsers on their computer, so wouldn't be too much hassle hopefully.

Also, America is more of a confederation of independent states than a fully united "country". People from California are entirely different than people from Minnesota

Your opinions on the system do not effect the objective outcome. American children test higher on all relevant subjects than nearly any other child in the world. Their only real competition is Canada, (some of) Japan, and Finland. If you are not from one of those places, the United States has absolutely nothing to learn about education from you. Their "flawed" system is getting superior results among a hugely diverse population in terms of resources and social standing.

The Inca tended to use maces and spears. (The Macahuitl was actually a warrior society weapon for the Mexica and not a primary one anyway).

AFAIK there was no notable source of obsidian in the Andes.
