Ring of Rings
Stargate SG1 Universe.
This object is mentioned by some scholars to be an ancients device used to repair and maintain the ring. Both the ascended allies of SG1 and the records of Atlantis record its existence but give few details.
The people of Metus 5 have shown SG 5 inscriptions describing the operation of the device.
A power full being called Lady Tzora arrived on the Metus 5 roughly 7 generations ago. It is unknown whether she was ancient, Goa'uld or even possibly Tok'ra. She came in a large ship; possibly a Hatac? She proceeded to where the gate had been on the planet. The gate had been destroyed centuries before.
Lady Tzora had a new base platform for the gate carved. Bags of materials were brought from the ship. She then activated the gem on her ring by stroking it. It shimmered and the bags vanished and nine tiles appeared in the shimmering light. She laid them out on a table and joined them edge to edge. It was loaded with two more bags. They shimmered and a new larger barrel shaped object appeared. This was repeated twenty eight times. These barrel shaped objects could not be carried by one man, two or three were needed. The barrels could however be rolled by one man but she refused to let them do that.
They placed these in a circle equal to the diameter of a gate ring. She also required the nine small tiles to be stacked on one of the barrels. The whole thing shimmered and glowed. Everything vanished in the glow and then the glow reformed its self into a stargate lying on the ground.
The gate may have been beamed down from the ship however that is a relatively simple process. The process Lady Tzoza seems too complex. The Data at Atantis indicates that the ring mentioned there makes the gate!
It does use raw Naquadah from the area or the ship.
On reactivating the gem by touching it to the gate, the gate became so light that three men could move it by hand with no difficulty. It was stood up on the platform. She touched the gem to the gate again and it locked into place.
The gem was touched a third time and a few seconds later the gate activated. A large round ball came out of the gate and rolled down the ramp. It was a ball of layered cloth. As it was unwrapped it was clear that the object in side had the same symbols as the gate. A new DHD we presume. The DHD was set up near the gate.
Lady Tzora then touched the DHD with the gem. The DHD and the gate activated. Out of the gate came another smaller ball. This ball was unwrapped to reveal a quantity of items that can be identified as ancients data and computing crystals. She took these away.
The peoples of Metus 5 hold that lady Tzora was evil. This was mainly due to the fact that within weeks of her departure a Goa'uld came through the gate and subjugated the Metusi in the name of Lord Yu.
However the connection between Lady Tzora and Yu has never been confirmed. It is possible that Yu dialled the gate blind as the SGC was known to do.
The fact that a ring exists that can create gates on command is extremely important. All efforts must be made to find this item. Its small size and innocuous appearance makes this difficult. We have no precise description. It could be any where in this galaxy. A search of Atlantis has also revealed nothing about the one mentioned in the Archives there. It is most likely that it was taken through the gate when the ancients evacuated Atlantis to our galaxy. The two rings may be the same ring in different hands.
Play balance. If this technology falls into the players hands the players government will demand that it be placed under heavy guard in a secure part of their stealthiest ship. The players loose the ring but gains a bonus to getting replacement gates when needed.
