Did you know that, according to reputable sources*, the Vatican controls 1/4th of the world’s gold supply? Nearly two thousand years of accumulation, despite the efforts of such figures as Saint Lawrence to redistribute it, have led to a vast collection of gold art and artifacts, as well as more monetary forms. As the Catholic Church is an old, large, and powerful institution, perhaps this is not terribly surprising to most people who’ve heard of it. But let’s look a little deeper.
Behind the Gold
As we know, at the beginning of human history, the Annunaki travelers from Nibiru came to Earth to mine gold from the Sumerians so that they could combat global warming (or cooling?) on their own planet. Modern scholars are not entirely sure how this process worked, but the Annunaki appear to have seeded their atmosphere with particles of gold. Their various excavation sites left humanity with a reverence for this precious and useful metal that continues to this day.
But few know the story behind this legacy. Ancient Aliens theorists have begun to reveal it to the public, but how long has the Vatican known this and kept silent? Is this, perhaps, their real motivation behind hoarding all this gold (unlike actual investments, this kind of wealth does NOTHING for them) lies in what they know of the Annunaki…and what they’re keeping secret.
There are a number of ways this connection could play out. What if the Vatican is much older than Christianity and is descended from an ancient pact between its founders and the Annunaki? Next time Nibiru swings by, they’ll have the gold ready and waiting.
Or perhaps the Vatican is the opposite. Maybe they were founded by people who deciphered these texts and their religious connections are a cover-up for keeping at least some of Earth’s gold reserves away from the Annunaki. Perhaps they’re preparing for when the Earth needs the gold for its own atmosphere.
Maybe they’re not related at all–at least until the Annunaki come back. Suddenly, a conflict arises. It’s an easy source of gold, but how will the Annunaki get ahold of it?
Where You Come In…
This could fit in a number of ways into a game or even a campaign. Are you trying to break down the alliance between the Vatican and Annunaki and save our gold? Has one side or the other hired you to save/steal the gold? Is your team’s goal to convince the Vatican to collaborate with the Annunaki so that they won’t re-enslave humans to mine the gold for them?**
*and conspiracy podcasts, of course!
** yes, the irony of talking of enslaving humans to mine gold given the conditions in gold mines right now does not escape me…and hey, maybe that could work into your game narrative.
