ATTENTION TIMEPIECE – A++ PRIORITY
From the team sent to 2250 BCE:
We have become aware that the Theran people have acquired unlimited access to a Stopwatch Notepad, giving access to technology far beyond what they should have. They have discovered an E.L.E meteor that will impact in approx. 200 years relative (2000 BCE). They are also aware that Thera itself will be destroyed in about 500 years.
The Therans plan to destabilise Egypt by building dam at Aswan, then conquering a now weakened Old Kingdom, then using the dam plus the more favourable geographic location to build some sort of device to launch at the E.L.E.
We await instructions and any additional equipment & personnel that you deem necessary to provide.
