A number of founders of new religions established plans for succession in order to prevent confusion after their deaths. Mary Baker Eddy , the American founder of Christian Science , spent fifteen years working on her book The Manual of the Mother Church , which laid out how the group should be run by her successors.  L. Ron Hubbard , the founder of Scientology , promoted his follower David Miscavige to be the head of the Scientology organization.   Sun Myung Moon , the founder of the Unification Church , assigned the leadership of the church to his wife, Hak Ja Han , who was much younger than he. 
Most details of the war are unknown to the Foundation. It is suspected that the deployment of Colossi (such as SCP-2406), as well as the heavy use of a substance resembling "Greek fire" 35 , that turned the tide of war against the Sarkites. When the war was over, the Adí-üm empire was assumed destroyed along with Sarkic civilization. In reality, Sarkicism would continue in secret - at both its homeland in the Urals and among the tribes that had fought under the banner of Adí-üm (such as among the Thracians and Dacians). The damage to the region was great and many civilizations did not recover, resulting in the collapse of various kingdoms, a crisis of refugees, the decline of art, literature, science, and technology, and the lingering disease and famine from Sarkic biological weapons; an event later known to historians as the Late Bronze Age collapse.
