Why? Why move the capital city of glorious Thebes to wasteland Armana. The way Akhenaton is using his powers, he'll probably have one god instead of many.
Fellow subjects and governors, I, as pharaoh, have decided to move te capital city of Thebes to Armana.
I have failed, failed! what shall I do?
Grand exalted pharaoh, your needs will be accomodated immediatley.
What is he doing? Why is he abandoning the old way? The gods will not be pleased. The gods might punish me for heresy. I will not comply.
I have also decided to make a religious conversion. From now on, Egyptians will only worship one god, the sun god, Aten.
Oh yes grand exalted leader, the one who leads our people, your wish is our command.
That does not matter, messenger. The only thing that matters is that the new religion is working, and I see that things are going well.
Sir, the reports are in. We have lost terretories along the Mediterranean. Our armies are in heavy retreat.
Sir, we've lost all our terretories along the Midterreanean. The army is at a state of mutiny. Also, the new religion is not working. Many people have refused to comply wit the rders and are worshipping the same gods as before.
