* [A] The people in Rosh’s group descended from the broad upland around Shedal southwest to Thalury.
 +
# When they arrived at a point on the coast where much fish could be obtained, the pointer angel on the Ark began to spin in contentment.
 +
# Rosh called this area Suhair. They planted seed on the gentle slopes inland from shore and raised flocks of animals on the golden hills that rose north and east of the sea. 
 +
# Many of the Children of Israel in exile came from elsewhere in Haaretz to approach the Ark of the Covenant. They came to speak directly to Chokhmah and also to receive his commandments.

* [B] After the death of Rosh the White Scroll and the Ark of the Covenant passed down his son Jachin.
 +
# The Roshites journeyed up the coast until it formed a narrow strait with the Isle they called Elendal lying off-shore. 
 +
# Some of the Roshites mingled with the indigenous peoples along the way. Most of the native people of the area were Gold Beards of the House of Sala, and they made their homes along the seashore.
 +
# But Jachin and most of the people pushed ever on until they reached a large river that poured from the east directly into the strait.
 +
# There the Judahites founded a settlement called Akamar.
 +
# [Anita, XX, Invulnerable, takes on Daat's attacking force by herself, suffers no wounds but renders many]
 +
 
 +
* [C] When Jachin waxed old and died the White Scroll and the Ark of the Covenant passed down then to his son Omar.
 +
# And it came to pass that Nahaliel of the tribe of Levi out of Adjara brought news that the temple in that city had been completed at long last, and it was time to transfer the Ark to its final home there. 
 +
# And Jachin went into the tent of meeting to inquire directly of Chokhmah if this was his will, and emerged to announce that it was the will of God that the Ark remain with the Roshites in Akamar. 
 +
# But Nahaliel did not believe Jachin spoke truthfully, and gave battle, but he was driven back to the wilderness of Shikah.
 +
# And Michael appeared among the the Levites, claiming to be the captain of the Lord of Hosts, and he brought much wine. 
 +
# And he said to Nahaliel that Jachin had done evil in the sight of Chokhmah in not allowing the Ark to pass to the temple in Adjara, and that the blessing was removed from the Roshites.
 +
# And that night Jachin waylaid the greater part of the army of Blackseed because they were exceedingly drunken.
 +
 
 +
* [D] The White Scroll and the Ark of the Covenant passed down to the son of Omar named Abidan.
 +
# And mercenaries of the Saiph League came to pillage the Roshites and seize the ark, but a member of the B'nei Elohim named [Ahlai, XZ, Invisible] came, declaring that Chokhmah sent a curse upon the land such that when any of the soldiers of the Saiph League set objects down at night, in the morning they were found to have disappeared.
 +
# But General Telan Blackseed of the Saiph League said the missing goods were not a sign of the power of El Shaddai, but indicated only thieves.
 +
# So everyone started keeping their worldly goods and weapons on their own person, but they could only carry so much, and the invaders were steadily impoverished even as they looted the lands around Akamar. 
 +
# And Abidan went into the field to give battle. Seeing his foes flee before him, the chieftain went nigh to the city of Mizal and plundered the encampments of the invaders.
 +
# General Blackseed fought with his back to the water. In the battle Blackseed smote upon Abidan with many wounds.
 +
# The king fainted from the loss of blood and was carried away.
 +
# Battle casualties were so high on both sides that Blackseed ordered his army not to pursue the armies of Abidan as they withdrew again to the city of Hadal.
 +
 
 +
* [E] Abidan never recovered from his wounds and soon died. And it was deemed by the people that Akamar had grown large and strong enough that Abidan’s son Baruch should be acclaimed a king of the city and the surrounding lands of Menkal which was what the Roshites called their homeland with it’s many islands and bays.
 +
# To ratify the elvation of Baruch to king, one among the B'nei Elohim [Muriel,XX,Grower] was sent to make the fields and gardens.  #  And there came against Menkal the angelic incarnation of Keter to attempt to do what Daat and the mercenaries of the Saiph League and the Levites could not, and take possession of the Ark of God. 
 +
# And Muriel went to the tent of meeting and ordered the Ark to be brought out into full view, and said Keter could take the relic if he wished, thus breaching the covenant with Chokhmah, but if he did, then all the other covenants were immediately of none effect. 
 +
# And Keter departed.  For the rest of the king’s life, there would be peace in the kingdom of Menkal.
 +
 
 +
* [F] King Baruch had a son named Mered, and the king made certain his son received a good education. Mered meticulously studied the laws and histories recorded on the White Scroll. Then came the time when King Baruch wanted to go into retirement. He told his son to gather the people together outside of the city so he could make the announcement. But that would be just a formality. Baruch gave his son the actual reins of power immediately. Additionally he passed on to Mered the Ark of the Covenant. In the morning the people arranged themselves around the chief gate of the city in tents, with each family separated one from another. The door of each tent was faced so they could stay in the tent yet hear the words of King Baruch as he spoke from a specially constructed tower. The king spoke of his life in service to the people, and how he even labored with his own hands that the people would not be unduly burdened with taxes. Yet he did not bring this up to boast, only to affirm that he had really been in the service of El Shaddai all along. The King said he served El Shaddai by serving his fellow human beings. And he also said that he only brought this to their mind to remind them that if he, their king, labored much to serve the people, then how much more the people ought to labor to serve one another. Then Baruch told the people he could no longer be their teacher or their king because he was very close to going the way of all flesh. It was only by the sustaining power of El Shaddai that he was even able to stand there and speak to them without instantly collapsing. He concluded his speech by declaring that his son Mered was already king and ruler over all the people of Menkal.

----
 +
* [M] - General Peresh, the leader of another expedition of the Saiph League, personally led the Army of the league in many boats across the lower reaches of the River Sabik, taking the town of Sadl Ferry in Menkal by surprise.
 +
# Rynet Wood, however, just a few miles inland, remained undigested.
 +
# Saiph League troops completely encircled the forest and were beginning to fight their way in, but a fair fraction of the forces of Peresh camped on a wide prairie between the forest and the roads to Melak to prevent King Mered from aiding the refugees hiding among the trees, as well as to prevent the refugees from fleeing to Alodra. 
 +
# The balance of Peresh's forces came to grips with King Mered's infantry on the Horse Plains between Rynet and Suhair along a broad front.
 +
# Both sides dug in and erected earthworks with elaborate trenches to protect themselves from bowshot, for soldiers on both sides realized that on the flat battleground there was absolutely no cover.
 +
# Thus the unfolding war threatened grind to a standstill and become a contest of attrition.
 +
* [M] Peresh wrote an epistle to King Mered that he ought to surrender his forces for the sake of the lives of his people. But the king answered nay.
 +
# And it came to pass that Peresh wrote another epistle to King Mered that if he gave himself up, and renounced his crown, he would spare the lives of the people. And the king answered nay.
 +
# And it came to pass that Peresh wrote a third epistle to King Mered, saying, Behold, with me are six thousand staters of silver, and all these I will give thee if thou wilt renounce thy throne and step down. King Mered refused to yield even to the sore temptation of the silver offered by Peresh, which was enough to buy two and forty thousand measures of barley or seven hundred head of cattle.
 +
# Yet it could not be used to buy provisions even in Menkal itself, for the war campaign had run well into the harvest season, and many crops rotted in the fields while the farmers fought for the king, and the cattle had been slaughtered. It was truly worthless. # So King Mered replied, May Yahweh the true and living God curse your money.
 +
* [O]Then Saiph League troops who thought themselves cozy and safe in fortifications soon found the very lumber they used to build their bulwarks were the target of a member of the B'Nei Elohim named Jeri, with the power of pyrokinesis.
 +
* [P] - Upon the death of King Mered the White Scroll and the Ark of the Covenant passed to his son, King Arieh.
 +
# A band of several hundred nomadic nephilim and human Haaretzi, ancient inhabitants of Haarentz who had been dispossessed by the children of Israel, persuaded him to let them stay in the land.
 +
# Arieh gave them the land of Glenah after commanding the Benjaminites in that land to take new homes in Akamar.
 +
# The nephilim lived peacefully for twelve years, but King Arieh had deceived them and intended later to take the goods they produced by force.
 +
* [Q] At first the Roshites made small spoiling raids, but soon a major battle was fought with the nephilim emerging victorious.
 +
# Ten years of cold peace followed, until the death of king Arieh, when Arieh’s son King Gruen tried to drive the Haaretzi out of the land.
 +
# But the Roshites were once again defeated, because their chieftain had sent spies to discover the disposition of the Roshites and made his preparations accordingly.
 +
# As part of those preparations, the women, children, and old and infirm were taken to safety.
 +
* [R] Before his death King Arieh bequeathed the White Scroll and the Ark of the Covenant to his son Parnach and declared him to be king of Menkal.
 +
# But after a time King Parnach proved to be even more evil than Arieh. He taxed his people heavily, spending the money on riotous living, including a spacious palace and a tall tower to spy out the lands of both Glenah and Shedal.
 +
# He even encouraged the people to immerse themselves in the same sins that he did.
 +
# The prophet Rekem of the tribe of Issachar came north to preach the repentance of Bat-El to Parnach’s people, but he was imprisoned by the very people he preached to. Rekem was taken in chains before King Parnach and his false priests. There Rekem delivered his final message and was executed by fire. As he was dying he prophesied that Parnach would suffer death in a similar manner. One of the priests of Parnach, a young man named Neriah, believed Rekem’s words and pleaded with the king to spare the prophet’s life. Neriah was cast out and was forced to hide so that the servants of the king could not kill him.
 +
* [S] Neriah taught the words of Rekem to more of the people, and many believed him. He also became a great prophet and religious leader among the rest of the Roshites in Menkal later in his life.
 +
# Hence, Rekem was successful in his prophetic mission although he died a martyr and only one single man believed his teachings while he lived.
 +
* [T] King Parnach’s evil and his oppression of the people continued. He even attempted to assail Neriah and his followers during a sermon.
 +
# Neriah and his disciples then left the vicinity of Glenah by secret ways in the forest to the east and the king’s army was unable to follow them.
 +
# Neriah led his people to a land hidden in the heart of Glenah Wood, where they prospered.
 +
* [U] A small group of Parnach’s people became angry with him, including a man named Jaanai who swore to kill the king.
 +
# They fought, and when Parnach saw that he was about to lose he fled to a tower.
 +
# From the top of the tower he saw that an army of Levites was about to attack and convinced Jaanai to spare him so that he could lead the people to safety.
 +
* [V] Parnach and his people fled, but they were unable to escape the Levites.
 +
# Parnach ordered the men to leave their wives and children behind. Some did, while others did not.
 +
# They were captured by the Levites and returned to Glenah, where they were taxed one half of all they owned and one half of everything they produced.
 +
* [W] The Levites then made Parnach’s son, Raddai, the chieftain of this group.
 +
# Those who abandoned their families and stayed with Parnach soon regretted their choice. They turned on Parnach and burned the man to death, fulfilling the prophesy of Rekem
 +
# Parnach’s priests ran away and hid in the fringes of Glenah Wood.
 +
* [X] The men of Glenah then returned, determined to find out what had happened to their families and to avenge them or die with them.
 +
# So they joined Raddai’s people. But Raddai, after a number of attempts to cast off the Levite yoke, had to accept that he would serve only as a tributary chieftain.
 +
* [Y] When tidings came to Akamar of the death of Parnach the second son of Arieh, a man named Dishon, was elevated to king of Menkal and took possession of the White Scroll and the Ark of the Covenant.
 +
# To discover the fate of Captain Peresh and his followers. Dishon soon discovered the people of Raddai at Glenah and the people of Neriah hidden in the forest and aided them all in escaping from the Benjaminites to Menkal in the west. 
 +
 
 +
* [Z] Once safe in Menkal, however, Neriah’s son Neriah the younger and the sons of King Mered grew filled with zeal for a strict application of the Covenant of Abraham.
 +
# They persecuted Neriah the elder and his movement was called the People of Bat-El briefly.
 +
# But after a time prophets from Hamar appeared and ordered them to lay off Neriah the Elder.
 +
# The foreign prophets were sufficiently persuasive that Neriah the younger and the sons of King Merad themselves became full converts to Bat-El.
