Shortly after the Iroquois vs Mayan war another war broke loose, though not a very violent war. The Germans demanded tribute, and the Mayans refused. Now, this was a turning point out of the Mayan greed. The germans attacked and captured the Mayan city of Yaxchilan. It was quickly re-taken by javelin throwers, but it sent a shock through the Mayan populace. They had lost a battle, they were not invincable.
To make matters worst, the Iroquois and aztecs settled land that the Mayans were forced to give up because of approaching german force's, this harmed the Mayan's badly, but the Mayan people had grown resourceful and decided to take a more peace like approach. They quickly built three cities. Each were to build a temple and take as much land from the Iroquois and aztecs as possible. At this point the Mayans also discovered something important, they had a large amount of gems, 8 known source's of it. This was a luxery that no one else had, and could be valable in trading. Only problem was, who would want it?
Now, to report some key points that had a small effect on the Mayan people. The Aztecs declared war on the Incan Empire, and in return made a military alliance with Amerca agaisnt the Aztecs. Now, I might have said this had a small effect on the Mayan people, but in reality it did. It slowed the three major powers down, and allowed them to catch up.
At this point in time, Mayan historians just stopped writing. There is few written records of the Mayan trenscendence into the A.D. years. The only know written reference is a journal by the Mayan leader, Strider.
These Mayan people, the once innoncent & peaceful people, had be shaken by there actions, and those of others. Technological advance's were coming fast and the world was changing. They were being forced into an unknown world, like a child being told that everything he thought was real, and his worst nightmares suddenly came true. This is where my recording of the Mayan civilization may end, but I will not give up my search for knowaledge. My curiousity has grown, and I wish to uncover the rest of these mysterious people.
I will steal the only known recording of this era of Mayan history.
Cheif Historian Director
Samual McWeever was the first Historian to try to unravel the "lost" Mayan history, and to piece it together. Unluckily he was hanged on March 13, 573 A.D. All of the above was his attempt to piece together the information, his notes and journals. Sir, I will attempt to learn more, but I believe inorder to do so we will have to pick up from where he left off. Let's just hope we can find that journal, if it still exists.
