CE 234 - Battle of Kadech
The Battle of Kadech marked the final annihilation of those pesky Abel loyalists, and it paved the way for centuries of prosperous Cainist rule, the building of the Pyramids of Gila, and all that!
I've always thought that war is the most fun a fellow can have with his clothes on. Although, I admit, the fact that only -Cain- can kill -Cain- may have had something to do with my enjoyment of it. I imagine it wouldn't be quite so exhilarating if I could have been seriously injured. Still, those spears and clubs really sting!
As you can see from the illustration at right, I never could get a decent tan! Also, back then I used a bow and arrow. That's how the artist saw it, anyway - I seem to recall firing energy blasts from my hand, actually, but I guess this was the best way to do it without some nice 3D lighting effects.
I was never a big fan of all that strategy nonsense. At Kadech, we just hopped in our chariots and rode forward at top speed. Most of my troops were slaughtered, yes, but all of theirs were wiped out, so I call it a great victory! I used this strategy in every battle until I got cavalry. Then I charged them forward, instead of the chariots. Tanks, too.
Of course, the really great part of the battle was after we won, when the dozen surviving Abelites sued for peace. They gave me one of their Princesses as a peace offering - and that was far enough back that she still looked a lot like the Antitype! Needless to say, I had to do my duty as Father of Mankind once again.
