The “Oku” (Cynidiceans)

While reading the Maze of the Blue Minotaur I got a Lost City/Cynidiceans vibe from the Oku.  Not sure if that was an inspiration but the Cynidiceans also wear animal masks, live in a dream-like state and believe they are the animals the mask portrays.  The Oku are a bit more aware of their surroundings, […]
