The Tablets of Destiny and Fundamental Powers of the Universe — and Goodness Knows What Else.

The most sought-after ultimate prize in prehistory, they have been nicked, stolen, chipped, dropped, snitched and snatched more often than you could imagine.

And no wonder, as anyone who possesses the Tablets of Destiny becomes instantly omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient and omniultrasupereverything. Not bad for a crumbling collection of clay lumps.

With ANZU and INANNA trying to grab them from ENKI and/or ENLIL, it's a wonder they ever remained in one piece. Fortunately MARDUK, who was worried about the stability of the Universe, came along eventually and superglued the Tablets of Destiny to his breast.

Where they are now is more than you or me can know. And ME is not 'Me' — it is pronounced 'Mai'. At least so they say, but who says it and do they talk in NAM-SHUB?

In short, no-one has been able to keep tabs on the tablets. Fragments could even be the Ten Commandments lugged down from the mountain by MOSES.
