It has been a hundred years since I made
my last report, and I am sad to say 46 of our numbers have succumbed to
old age. And many of the animals that we have created are disappearing
as well. Creos says it is because our males are so dominant that the
young ones are leaving the herds and taking over native animals and
mating with them, and that their genetic inheritance is becoming weaker
and weaker. I am afraid he is right.
2 Much has been going on the last few years! We have established
colonies in other places besides the area where we landed, but they
have been overrun by a barbaric people called The Persians. Several
small skirmishes have already been fought and it appears a major battle
is looming. Creos says it will be numbers against skill and
determination and not even he is sure what the outcome will be. He
believes our people can win, but it is going to take every bit of skill
that we have. We are preparing to take a group of soldiers up into a
mountain pass so they can hold it and give the rest of the forces time
to rally. I will report on the results of these efforts later.
3 I must report that our efforts in the first attack of this enemy were
dismal. We got the troops up into the pass, but the weather turned
against us. They held for a time, and then were betrayed by one of
their own countrymen, who led the enemy around behind them. The heroic
king leading them sent all but three hundred of his troops to safety,
and then held as long as he could. But he bought time and we were able
to gather enough troops to defeat the enemy later, in a successful
ground battle. Only Creos' great skill in getting these people to fight
together and to use superior tactics gave us the day! Later the enemy
was completely defeated in a naval battle! On the water we don't havve
to give these people much advice. They are more than capable of meeting
and destroying any enemy! If they could only keep their unity after the
battles, and stop fighting among themselves!
4 I have fathered thirty more native children, and two more children
among those of our women that survived! But their ability to produce is
dwindling long before it should. They have had far less children than
they should have had. Though Creos' people continue to be born in our
bodies. Even They are not strong enough and try as they may, those of
us that remain in The Afterlife here cannot be reborn. We are simply
needed to maintain what already exists. I wish so much I could get this
imformation back to my people so they would fully understand the
necessity of continuing to colonize in the manner that we have been
doing, and not to try to cut numbers in our colonies. I am afraid that
smaller colonies would suffer the same fate that we are suffering here.
5 And I have heard that my son Odin is having troubles. His colony was
thriving but now there has been some trouble between him and one of his
other leaders, and they are beginning to fight amongst themselves.
Creos has gone up to try to mediate, but the divisions are deep.
Apparently Odin had an affair with the leader's wife, and she had a
child, which angered the leader greatly! Now they are squabbling
constantly! This would've never happened in a stable Olympian colony.
The leaders would have wanted each other to father children with their
wives, to create the greatest diversity. That this discourse is
occuring is showing that The Olympian Way is failing here, and it
should not be. It simply should not be! 6 Sadly, I had to arrange some
misfortune for a group among these people that supposedly worshipped
me. They were teaching that all boys, as soon as they became men,
should be given to men for sexual pleasure. I caused them to put their
settlement on the side of a volcano that I knew was about to
catastrophically erupt! Now, they, and their foul teachings are ashes
circling this world! Creos says this will be a constant battle. There
are always some among these people that turn to this foulness. But
these won't be any more! I have seen to that! And the rest of the
natives around here know full well I was responsible! And if they are
interested in that kind of thing they are not doing it publically!
Because they know that it will immediately bring my wrath!
7 I know this is a short report, but I have nothing new to offer at
this time. We are doing our best to give these people the Olympian
ideas, to guide them to a civilized society. But it is difficult, it is
