Destruction of the Royal Library at Alexandria
So, because no one knows the exact time and when the Alexandria Library was demolished, or how. I suggest we create our own date. And should I want to, I can actually use this as a catapult for potential piece of fiction. Hardbound Henchmen, as it was once known, or Coffeeshop Philosophers as it was last named is about an Illuminati-esque group called the Censors who outright destroy books, literature and other writing that may unlock a very powerful ability inside humans. Namely, how to manifest the written word into what that word represents. They basically suppress human potential. Anyway, their coronation would have started with the destruction of the Alexandria Library.
If no objections, I suggest we make it a two-fold. Fires on libraries were common throughout history. So, Alexandria’s books were completely destroyed from a fire much earlier than the last possibly thought date for its destruction. We then destroy the building later, to add validity to actual history.
Something like the books were destroyed in 432 but the building stood until the Byzantine Empire dropped it in 642. What might the building have done standing for two hundred, ten years? I don’t know, but it leaves an interesting little gap to play with, and craft some cool stories.
Scientist vs. Scientist
So, in my attempts to add one “blip” to each of the aeons, I think I stumbled over pure fucking gold. We’re talking Nazis vs the world, but more importantly, scientist versus scientists. Johannes Stark (notable physicist and Nazi) versus Einstein (a Jew). Are there much bigger names in science? Not many. Add those pieces to a “-punk” world, and amplify a feud that did actually exist and we have potential for some crazy scientific mini-war inside World War II. I’d imagine they could come up with crazy devices to supply their respective sides in the World War, but what if they used devices to personally attack each other? Like, automaton mercenaries, or something…
The question is, what kind of devices should they create and what kind of war? I want input and help with this, especially because I know nothing about physics.
