The Twentyseven Origins of Power of Karzh Akkadur

From where comes that crushing might? Where does an empire find the strength to overcome and conquer amidst a teeming tide of savage foes? From where, you ask. From where does power grow?

I will tell you truly, and I will tell you thrice upon thrice upon thrice:

I. Power comes from gods on high.

II. Power comes from will within.

III. Power comes from chance beyond.

IV. Power is found in riches grabbed.

V. Power is found in lives subjected.

VI. Power is found in tribe led.

VII. Power grows from the womb of a mother.

VIII. Power grows from the chimney of a forge.

IX. Power grows from the barrel of a gun.

X. Power springs from mastery of word.

XI. Power springs from mastery of deed.

XII. Power springs from mastery of self.

XIII. Power hails from knowing.

XIV. Power hails from knowing more.

XV. Power hails from knowing more than others.

XVI. Power issues from having the means.

XVII. Power issues from having the means that others do not.

XVIII. Power issues from having the means that others do not, to claim their means.

XIX. Power stems from violence.

XX. Power stems from robbery.

XXI. Power stems from enslavement.

XXII. Power emanates from blind obedience.

XXIII. Power emanates from harsh discipline.

XXIV. Power emanates from raw ambition.

XXV. Power arise from cunning.

XVI. Power arise from ruthlessness.

XXVII. Power arise from iron will.

* On origin line IX: This originally read ”Power grows from the wound of an axe” or ”Power grows from the flight groove of a crossbow” in different versions. However, after the invention of gunpowder weaponry, later generations modified line IX to better suit themselves.
