The gods never stood a chance. Enkidu used his tracking skills, and I used my knowledge of how the gods work. We broke in and captured them before they knew what had happened!

They said we would soon beg them for forgiveness. Why? Because they said that only the gods can maintain order, and soon every city will be at war with every other. And they say the forest people will not obey us: so nobody will get any timber. Without wood the economy will collapse. But they said we could stop now and they would pretend this never happened.

Are they right? Should we give up, go home, and live the rest of our lives in peace and quiet? Or are they bluffing? Can we run the world just as well as they do? Or should we go to the forest people, and take control there? But what if they out-think us? Or should we do something else?
