You are standing in a half-lit alcove in one of the inner chambers of Nebuchadnezzar II's palace. Babylon is scorching under the late spring sun, but the events which are taking place before your very eyes, chill you to the bones. A 13-years reign of unmatched courage, splendorous victories, and relentless conquests comes to an end not with a last glorious battle but a death rattle.

Alexander the Great, surrounded by his most loyal generals, is breathing his last breath. You not quite sure if you have heard the raspy whisper coming from within the circle correctly - "for the strongest". What does it mean? The broad shoulders of generals part a little and allow you to see Alexander's lifeless, mask-like countenance and his ring - a symbol of his astounding power - placed on a small pillow resting upon his chest. You take a bow to pay respect to our beloved king with whom you have battled arm-in-arm for the past 10 years since Issos.

When you look up, fighting to clear the lump in your throat, you can't believe what you are seeing. Some of the generals have focused their stares upon the ring, stares you have witnessed many times before, in other circumstances of course, but nevertheless. Stares of self-restricted greed - the greed of power - breaking loose. You momentarily tense up, glaring furiously, clenching your fists. This can only mean one thing - war of the succession is about to come. . .
