Voices of Babylon: Lost
Disaster has struck. A Hittite army has marched down the Euphrates River and sacked Babylon. Although your party is isolated among enemies in a marsh area, it is the only hope for extracting revenge. A Hittite force remains in the area and intends to build a new city along the river. Clear your enemies from the marshland and destroy the Hittite city before it becomes established.
Objective: Destroy the Hittites.
Historical Notes: The Babylonian Empire of Hammurabi diminished gradually over the next 150 years. First the Elamites across the Zagros Mountains reestablished their independence, and then the Gutian tribes in the mountains reestablished theirs. Then Akkadia and Sumer split away. Babylon remained a rich city, however, thanks to its trade connections along the Euphrates River. In 1595 BC, the Amorite dynasty of Hammurabi suffered a death blow. In a lightning campaign that is difficult to understand today, a Hittite army marched down the Euphrates and sacked Babylon. The purpose of such a raid so far from Hittite areas of influence is a mystery, unless tales of the wealth of Babylon even then proved irresistible to an army looking to plunder.
Historical Outcome: Whether the Hittites hoped to settle along the Euphrates is not clear. They apparently withdrew quickly after sacking Babylon and returned to their traditional sphere of influence along the upper reaches of the river. Remnants of the Babylonian army of guerrilla style warfare may have convinced them to return whence they came.
