"Task Villagers on the Fire Pit to perform powerful dances."
The Fire Pit is an economic building in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs that is unique to the Native American civilizations (Aztecs, Iroquois, and Sioux). It grants a choice of "dances" which provides special bonuses when Villagers are tasked to the Fire Pit. A Fire Pit can hold up to 25 dancers; the more Villagers tasked to the Fire Pit, the more powerful the dance becomes. The percentage-based dances use the final amount as base, instead of the unimproved amount, which means that the dances are much more powerful than they would otherwise be in later Ages.
The Aztec Warrior Priest can be tasked to the Fire Pit, where it is counted as two dancers. This makes the Aztec Fire Pit dances have superior bonuses than others.
"For the aboriginal peoples of North and Central America, spirituality encompassed all the routines of daily life. Worship was not something that happened according to some arbitrary schedule. Hunting, cooking, meeting - all of life's activities had spiritual and ceremonial significance.
Long before recorded history, Native peoples have celebrated the mysteries of life, death, and the universe through the medium of dance. Many complex dance ceremonies emerged over the centuries, each with their own meaning and purpose. The ceremonial dance served as a way to unite people to face the day's challenges, while at the same time linking with the honored traditions of generations past."
