Part I - Foundations It was a dark year, a dark year for all, there had once been 6 great tribes, each seperate from one another, living in peace and war as it suited them. But this ancient system was coming to an end. It would take a streak of fire across the sky to unite the tribes, there was panic and there was fear. The holy men preachde the time had come for change, that the streak was signal from the spirits, and that all the tribes must unite, and create something that would appease the spirits. The tribal leaders would believe anything: and so the six tribes joined together and they would call themselves greeks, the Athenians, the Spartans, the Thebans, the Seleucids, the Corinthians and the strongest of all the Macedonians. And so on a cold wintery day the tribal leaders swore a blod oath, to live, fight and die together, and so would there would there ancestors for a thousand years, until the ending of the world. There city would be called Athens, and in time it would change the world, as would the greeks who founded it. But the greeks were not the only ones to unite under a common banner in the year that would in time be called 4,000 B.C, far from it across the plains, deserts, oceans and mountians other peoples would do the same, and they would not be the only challenges to face the Greeks in times to come.
