    In ancient Mexico Emperor Kukulkan rules a province neighbouring the Toltec empire. The people under the urging of priest Nasca have turned against god Qala, the feathered serpent, and worship Teshcata.
    Nasca praying to the statue of Teshcata believes he hears Teshcata telling him that the new temple and palace built in his honour is not enough, he demands blood.
    Kukulkan in his private chamber tells his daughter Chimalma that he wishes her to marry the Toltec Prince Heumac, this will cement the two tribes together and after his death Heumac and Chimalma will rule together and hopefully reinstate Qala.
    Nasca had personally instructed the architect of the new palace Maxtala to include a labyrinth of secret passages.
    Nasca is spying through a hole in the stonework of Kukulkan's chamber and hears what he regards as treachery against Teshcata.
    Nasca " I have been blind Teshcata, I thought the poison would come from without, but it is already in the hearts of your children. The blood you demand must be royal, so be it"
    Prince Heumac and his army are camped outside the city having been invited by Kukulkan for a feast.
    Nasca tells Kukulkan's champion Mahoutec that he won't marry Chimalma as is his due as champion. Mahoutec disbelieves this but Nasca tells him he'll prove it to him. He tells him to delay his entrance at the feast.
    Heumac's boy servant Tozo is sent to give Kukulkan a message of greeting from Heumac.
    Maxtala the architect shows Nasca a chart he has drawn up on Nasca's insistence showing the secret passages. Once Maxtala has convinced Nasca he has spoken to no one about the chart, Nasca's right hand man, a huge mute named Shadak, sticks a dagger into his back. Mahoutec enters the temple, Nasca is distracted and Maxtala escapes into the secret passage behind the statue of Teshcata, taking the chart with him. After speaking to Mahoutec Nasca realises Maxtala is gone, obviously wounded not dead, and enraged that the chart is gone too.
    Heumac and his entourage enter the city, his servant Tozo allowed to tour the city and amuse himself while Heumac dines.
    Tozo befriends a street beggar, but it's a trap, the beggar's accomplice hits him from behind and knocks him out and robs him.
    A blind man stumbles over his body and says;
    " it starts, the dream of terror that will end in Heumac's death begins"
