But I think the setting states that the Tlalocana have access to "real" bronze (that is, tin and copper alloys) and they have inherited some of the technical expertise of a more advanced civilization... the only reason they canīt use iron and steel if because monster shenanigans...
Yeah. Technically, they'd prefer iron+, and are being fed all sorts of technical information. But them's some seriously nasty critters (and worse stuff). I haven't decided what, exactly, but I know that no one but the mind flayers themselves could walk in there and have any chance, and they'd be challenged for sure. And being focused on efficiency, they figure they can do just fine against the stone-age tribes around them the way they are.
