ChapterI -The Bronze & Pre-Iron Age
-.20th century BC
A small group of citizens from the fairly new nation known as Egypt, study the way of combat. The leader [and fonder] of this group wanted to document these techniques, because of the dreams he had about Horus and Anhur demonstrating them to him. He practiced these techniques for days and days on end, before teaching his brother and sons these methods. On small sand tiles, he wrote down the systems along with his culture and beliefs. He inscribed that training and practicing these techniques were ways of thanking the gods, and in return they would reward one with bodily health and knowledge of how to protect one ’s self as well as their belongings.
After news of other civilizations started to surface in Egypt, curiosity over their culture filled the land. The man, now teacher of a ‘word-of-mouth’ school, started to get word of people from these nations: Babylon and Mesopotamia, who wanted to trade methods. These fighters eventually documented their styles and culture in the inscribes. These, as well as the migrating in and out of Egypt, is the reasons why the documents found themselves traveling to Babylon, to live for two centuries.
- 8th century BC
Around the time 776 BC, the Greeks discovered the tablets. They brought the tablets to Greece just in time for the first Olympics. The Greeks, following in the tradition of the civilizations before them, wrote down their philosophy. They believed that Zeus had Hermes guided them to the documents. That they were meant to have this entity, which was touched by many different civilizations and their gods, to be placed in the hands of the Olympian’s people. They felt that their gods should enforce the power that lied behind the tablets.
They brought the winners of the first Olympic Games, as well as the winners of all the Olympic Games that followed while the tablets lied in the land of Greece, to write on sheets of paper, soaked in oil, sweat, and dirt which was scraped off the athletes. They wrote with ink made of magical herb from the bottom of Mt.Olympus . Athletes: such as Diagoras of Rhodes, his sons, Milo of Croton, and Theagenes of Thasos, wrote about their workout conditioning and training in their styles, the mentality they had/one would need to have to be successful in those forms of fighting. The tablets, which would be renamed ‘άρια τρόπο(ária trópo, meaning: Ares way)‘, would be held in a temple on the top of a hill in northern Greece. Upholding the tradition that the founder started, they called for the ‘greats’ from all over the country to document their philosophies.
For the years that would follow, Egyptians would come and add the power of their gods over the tablets that were added by them long ago. Two more centuries would pass before, for unknown reasons, the άρια τρόπο would be shuffled between nations again. Going from the hands of Zeus himself, to the hidden tombs of ‘The Pyramids of Giza’; from the newly built ‘Hanging Gardens of Babylon’ to the door steps of Persia, where it would stay until the wise minds of China would get a hold of it.
Well, this is what I got so far.....I kept having these thought about the origins of the Warrior Scrolls. So I sat for three hours and wrote this. I apologize for the limited amount of details and the poor wording/bad writing. My mind thinks in jumbles, making it hard for me to stay focused......I'll write 'Chapter II- The Iron & Silver Age' later.
