i figured i would update the history
begin history dump...
Hey unc. this is what I've finally put together as the early history as we know it. I'm sure some pieces are missing but we'll run with this for
now as it seem accurate and jives with the oration from old 9. If you want a detailed analysis of all the old scrolls, it's going to take much much
longer as I don't have all the equipment and assistance I need, and we want to keep this quiet, right?
After being looted, rings A, B, C find their way into the hands of Sargon the Great and into his great treasure vaults. Ring D is sold to a trader,
and disappears into the collapse of the Egyptian Old Kingdom.
Rings A B C were only held by Sargons line for 50 years until the Akkadian Kingdom was overrun by the Gutians, who held the rings briefly until they
were destroyed by the renewed Sumerians.
In 1950BC the Sumerians were overrun with startling rapidity by the Amorites. Rings A and B were transported to the new Elamite capital of Babylon,
where they later became Hammurabi's favourite posessions around 1850BC.
Ring C was smuggled out by a Sumerian priest and ended up in a small temple along the Euphrates river between Uruk and Ur.
Meanwhile, ring D had found its way into the hands of the Egyptian Pharaohs of the 12th Dynasty. It was to stay in the hands of the Pharaohs for
hundreds of years.
In 1593BC, Babylon is destroyed by the Hittites who then withdraw. Ring A is captured by a Hittite General, ring B is saved by a fleeing Babylonian
soldier and taken to Damascus, only to be stolen in 1525BC by the Hyksos during their retreat after being expelled from Egypt by Thutmose I. The ring
is sold and ends up in the hands of a Syrian Nobleman.
1500 BC: A - City of Hattusha, Hitti (Modern day Turkey)
B - Damascus, Syria
C - Temple on the Euphrates
D - Memphis, Egypt
This remains the status quo for another 3 centuries, the origins of the rings are long forgotten.
In 1200BC the Hittite civilization finally collapses after increasing raids from the sea people on one side and Central Asian tribespeople on the
other. Ring A is looted by the Sea People and eventually ends up in the hands of the Philistines 25 years later. The Philistine leader begins to
suspect there is more to the ring than meets the eye. Rumors of there being other rings begin to circulate throughout the Philistine kingdom.
Ring A is later looted by the Israelites after their conquest of the Philistines. Bible reference, 1 Samuel 17:53. To then fall into the hands of
David and later his son Solomon. Ring A is now under Hebrew control. Ring B also falls into the hands of the Israelites after Damascus is conquered by
the Armies of David. Bible again, 2 Samuel 8:5, 8:6.
Ring D is stolen by the Nubian invaders of Egypt in 730BC, However the Nubians adapt quickly to Egyptian culture and the Nubian king Piankhi starts
the 25th Dynasty. The ring remains a favourite of the King.
Assyria overruns Israel in 721BC, and begins the long march to Conquering Egypt in 676BC. During the fall of Israel rings A B escaped with fleeing
Israelites and are eventually traded into Greece.
675BC ring D is captured by the Assyrians during their conquest of Egypt. The ring is taken back to Niveneh after Egypt expels the Assyrians 20 years
After a rest of 14 centuries, Ring C is looted from its temple home by the invading Chaldeans. The Chaldeans later form an alliance with the Medes and
destroy Assyria. Ring D is taken by the Chaldeans during the sack of the Assyrian capital Niveneh. The Chaldeans take the rings back to Babylon and
the old rumours begin to circulate of the existence of the other rings. The priests of Babylon take control of the rings and claim they are relics of
their gods, due to the Sumerian writing inside.
Rings A B are still around in Greece, at one stage they are in the Possession of Thales of Miletus. Later in the Possession of Pythagorus in 550BC.
Around 510BC an uprising in Greece brings about a kind of Democracy. The Rings end up in the possession of Heraclitus.
500BC A - Athens, Greece
B - Athens, Greece
C - Babylon
D - Babylon
499BC King Cyrus of Persia (now in control of Babylon) takes an interest in the Rings, he too suspects they are not the only ones in existence.
Rings A B were removed from Athens by Heraclitus and taken to his home in Ephesus. Saving them from the fall of Athens in 480BC when a Persian army
led by Xerxes overruns the greek opposition.
470BC When Heraclitus dies, he passes the rings onto a young Herodotus, along with his suspicions that there are 2 more out there.
440BC Herodotus travels cover most of the Ancient world, he is the first person to write history as a factual linear series of events. Previously
history was generally recorded in poems by priests, who had a tendency to be over subjective and give their gods responsibility for all events.
431BC A series of wars between rival Greek city-states begins and goes for 25 years. Herodotus begins to create a small group of thinkers to ponder
the reasons for the rings, and to protect them.
399BC A-team member Socrates is condemned to death, instead of fleeing he chooses to take the Hemlock himself. Keeping the secret of the rings safe.
396BC Antisthenes is also an A-team member, he begins the Cynical school of thought. Fed up with the way of the world as he sees it.
325BC Alexander the Great crushes the Persian Empire and takes control of Babylon. Rings C D are given to his son Alexander IV in 322BC
311BC Alexander IV is killed, former bodgyguard of Alexander the great, Ptolemy, has stolen rings C D and escapes to Egypt with them. There he
declares himself the King of Egypt.
201BC The A-team moves Rings A B to Rome after Rome defeats Carthage in the second war between the two. Rome is well on the way to becoming the most
powerful empire the world has ever seen.
29BC Egypt is now a Roman state, Cleopatra has been in posession on C D. After the death of Anthony and Cleopatra, Ring C is stolen by a Roman General
and goes with him to Judea. He then gives it as a gift to his wife.
Ring D is given as a gift to the Roman Emperor Octavian. Who will later become Augustus Ceasar.
A - Rome (A-team)
