>This quest is based on Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and heroes of Olympus series, if anyone has read it>character creation will happen later in thread, feel free to decide on a name though. I'd prefer a male, seems like all female protagonists in quests end badly/lewdly"Okay everyone, stay close by. Anyone that wanders off wont be eligble to going to the dance." Mrs. Harrison says to the busload of high school juniors and sophmores. As one of the chemistry teachers, shes leading the trip to some big biomedical lab. Yeah, I know. Chem as a junior. But you try memorizing the differences between neutrons and neutrinos when you're dyslexic and ADHD. Combine that with your parent's distrust of BigPhara, and you get to enjoy a bunch of scribblings dancing on the page whenever you try to study. You file off the bus, shuffling in a line past the blue plastic seats. A brunette woman in a lab coat meets your class at the entrance, giving same speech you hear on a field trip. Say with the group, don't touch anything, raise your hand, blah, blah, blah. You follow the tour guide for an hour, you notice something…odd. And odd by your standards is downright insane by other's. Ever since you've been a kid, you've seen things others can't. First there was the elephant with three trunks. And despite what the police report claims, you are innocent. The elephant unlocked the door himself. Anyway, down the a hallway, a blur of brown and gold rushes past your view. A pair of clicks echo down the hall, and a wedge shaped head topped with a pair of golden branches looks at your group. You lock gazes with the animal, it's black eyes pleading for help with an intelligence higher than some of the people in your math class. Nails click on the linoleum floors, startling the blinged out deer. It shoots you final look, before running for its life. >what do you want to do?one of my first quests, give advice whenever you have it

>>40134590>See if anyone else noticed it, maybe we're insane.
>>40134781seams more likely we are schizophrenic we should probley tell our teacher we are seeing things and hopefully get on a good schizophrenic meds before we get crazy thoughts and become a danger to our self and others.>>40134819or you know deranged think if it from the kids view you start seeing things next thing you know you thing your a god, then the police put 92 rounds in your face cause you were holding a spork and shouting about the monsters

>>40135244>stay with the groupWell, this is a new one. Even some whose never spent a day in his life outside of Boston knows deer don't have horns Mr.T would kill for. But, the prom is a few weeks from now and you never know what might happen there. You look down the hallway as the clicking passes, a Black and Tan shape half the size of a dumpster. A line of steaming liquid remains on the linoleum, slowly burning into the plastic tiles. "-ou can see, this alloy mimics human bones. Due to the 3d printing machines, we can implant marrow int-" the tour guide rambles on, holding up a golden femur. Funny, looks like that deer's antler. She pauses in her explanation as the shape passes, and takes a deep breath in through her nose. Her pupils dilate a shocking degree, the icy blue being completely covered in the black. "...as I was saying, our revolutionary new technique will shape the lives of millions as bone replacement patients often suffer from reduced red blood cells. We wouldn't want that, now would we?" She laughs, followed by some people laughing despite it not being funny. >ask to go to the restroom>ask to go to the restroom, look for the deer>say you're sick, go to the bus>stay with the group>write in

You weave through your class towards the teacher, and ask to go to the restroom. The biology teacher nods and waits until the weird tour guide is finished with her lecture. She points down the way you came, and you take the corner out of their sight.You immediately forget the directions, as you follow a shallow trench in the tiles down the hall. Steam is still rising from it, forming a obvious path the deer and it's pursuer took. You are quickly lost in the maze of corridors, the trench the only reason you can navigate. A fallen scientist huddles in the corner of a room, muttering about Terminators.Ignoring the shattered equipment and the insane scientist, you continue down the halls. After two more rooms(and another scientist), a random pattern of clicking and a low pitched growl fill the narrow hallway. A door lies broken in half at doorway, framing a scene out of Mythomagic. The deer with gold antlers bounces around the sunny cafeteria, it's hooves clicking musically with each footfall. It's rival is much less graceful, a massive Doberman with hellish red eyes. It rams the tables the deer stands on, knocking them over just as the deer hops away. Despite its agility, a flap of fur is hanging off its hind leg with golden liquid dripping from it. >CHARGE>NOPE, I'm off my meds. Time to go>write in

Female despite the QM preference, because just as half-bloods tend to get the short end of the stick in Greek legends, so too do many of the ladies.

Why not go for the best goddess and be born from Hestia then? Or Demeter.
hey QM do we have good grads in history take this from a person with ADHD and dyslexic, even with it you can still get good grads. It's harder but if our mother is supporting you you can get a in all subject.
>>40136976of course you like the god of rainbows faggot
>>40137143That is Iris.Eris is the goddess of chaos; remember the whole Troy thing. She started that.
Unnaturally colored animal, check. Other animal that breaks the square cubed law, check. Seems like a pretty normal day. You wait for the dog to crash into a table, then book it across the cafeteria. Your hands fumble across the counter looking for a weapon. Silverware scatters on the floor, a sound that makes the dog's ears shoot up.Your hand finally closes on a black plastic handle, the blade sheathed in a wooden knife rack. You pull it out, spinning around to protect the deer. ...and now the dogs looking at you. At least you have a weapons now, right?Your paring knife wobbles in your hand, the blade extending three inches from your grip. Perfect. The giant dog turns to face you, steaming slobber dripping from its maw. The monster's plate sized feet rocket off the floor, a single leap propelling it a quarter of the way across the cafeteria.Another leap sends it flying once more, the golden stag forgotten. The world seems to slow down, as you contemplate what to do. >hide behind the counter>run to the stag>Stab the doggie>write inRoll a 1d100 with your choice, best of three Sorry about the wait

>>40137185>hide behind the counterGive the stag time to recover and get into position, then we can pincer the beast.
>>40137199Isn't one of the main characters the daughter of Athena?
>>40137313Yeah but Athena can be pretty bitchy, see Medusa and Arachne.
>>40137330No I meant that Athena was a virgin goddess and she has a kid.
>>40137369she makes children by thinking them into existing
>>40137369Well yeah but Athena reproduces like how Zeus made her. She thinks up a kid if she likes a guy enough. So reproduction via hand holding basically.
I didn't know that. I just thought Hestia would be a cool mom.
>>40137369i thought that Artemis was the virgin goddess
>>40137546She was one of a few. Athena never had kids, and Aphrodite had a magic pool or something that made her a virgin when she swam in it. Though that sounds silly and I'm not too sure about that. Hera too; she made Hephaestus all on her own as well.
The giant dog falls toward you, slobber sparkling in the sunlight. You sidestep to the left, matrixing away from the flesh ripping teeth and claws. You instinctively spin the knife around in your hand, holding it like an ice pick. You slash it forward, the blade sinking to the hilt. Then past the hilt.Your hand punches into the monster's hind leg, the paring knife falling to the floor. ...what. The. Fuck. The stag runs up to the hound as it slams into the concrete counter, the tiles cracking in it's face print. The golden stag rears up on its hind legs, milling its front hooves. The blackish material of the deer's feet slam into the dog's back. The dog's legs splay out with the impact, scrabbling on the smooth surface for purchase. >kick the dog while it's down>run>mount the stag>something else>>40137606There's debate on Hephaestus, the myths vary. You can ask her later
>>40137546Virginity is one of Artemis's domains, but they are both virgins.

are there any mortals who can see through the mist?

>>40138749there are, but they're rare.
While the demon dog is still on the ground, you shuffle around to be at the side of the deer. It's shoulders are about as high as your neck, though the constant movement go its feet makes the animal look taller. The golden chandelier attached to its skull helps as well. Each side has eight points, all a flawless shimmering goldOnce the stag's done pummeling the dog(a disturbingly long time for a herbivore), you place your hand on its shoulder. The muscle vibrates like a guitar string, producing a slight buzzing noise. In a moment of idiocy that will no doubt become a local myth, you swing onto the animal's back. It's whole body buzzes this time, it's antlers vibrating like tuning forks. A moment passes where you're positive it will buck(puns, lol) you off, until the vibration dies off completely. Mimicking the movies, you bend and place your head near its ear. "Nice to meet you, strange genetic monstrosity. I'm Alex" The beast seems to understand, making whatever noise a deer makes in response. The stag begins walking away from the dog proudly, throwing a final, two legged, kick to the monster in farewell. You decide that it's best not to climb down, not least because they never show how to on TV. You'd think they'd have, like, a public service announcement. The golden hind pushes a door open to the outside with its antlers, the strange gold metal gouging into the steel door like it were butter. The smell of pine trees greets you, mixed with smog from nearby cars.
>>40138830>apparentlyThat was (sorta) voted on, but did it come up in the story yet?
>>40138906Your mount takes off, the landscape blurring with speed. The world changes almost instantly from the land outside Boston, to a cold grey beach. The sea seems restless, beating the shore like it owes it money. The stag kneels down into the sand, waiting for you to get off. You pet it behind the ears, moving down to its neck as it stands up again. Your mount nudges you with its snout, carefully maneuvering it's antlers to not take an eye out. You can almost hear the stag's thoughts as he turns. "Find your home, Alex. When you are in need, remember your father." The golden stag disappears in a blur of brown, leaving behind a track in the sand. Something gleams in the sand, half buried by the stag's hooves. You reach down to it, and pull a piece of gold antler from the sand.
Alex _____, Son of Eris.Dad is some sort of Supernatural rip-off; went from being either being in the military/hired guns to a monster hunter. Sort of went off the deep end for a long while before showing up one day with a kid. Questionably sane, has his good days and his bad days.
>>40138830Dionysus is a god, anon.
>>40138949Guess he's the son of some kind of nature deity.Probably won't be Faunus
I hope everyone else in this thread knows there's more than one half-blood camp and the Roman demigod camp is based as fuck
>>40139043This (? Dunno, maybe Erebus has already decided... But it's worthy the try!).
>>40136936I think it'd be best to have the QM roll for it on a table.And the BIG 3 have very few children anyway.
>>40139093Isn't he fit and handsome too though? I just thought Disney made him chunky.
>>40139043That sounds pretty cool.
>>40139043Impossible. Normals cannot see any magic shit for what it is, so they can't be monster hunters. A minotaur would look like a big hairy dude.In-universe, two guys dueling with swords looks like two guys just pointing guns at each other and threatening each other.
>>40139215In the books he's a former hippie in a Hawaiian shirt who had to switch to Diet Coke on Zeus' orders
The stag pointed towards a hill with a massive tree, so you start walking towards that. A sign hangs off one branch, hanging above a pile of purple cables wrapped around the tree. As you walk closer, the cables start shifting and smoke rises from one end. The sign changes as well, flickering between a sign for fresh strawberries and a Golden Fleece. Life is already so god damn weird, you rode a deer, tried to kill a giant dog, learned about bone replacements, and now there's a giant pile of smoking purple cables. Not going to question that. You pass the giant pine tree and Puff the purple dragon, heading toward a three story farm house. Some bizarre summer camp materializes out of no where, a massive stone theater taking the place of a field. Kids, and I mean kids. There's probably five people you can see that can drink. Most are wearing orange or purple shirts, with some strange writing on them. One girl looks about your age, her orange shirt tied up and sun colored hair in a pony tail, looks up from her horse. The horse with wings. Okay. That's not weird. Shit, she's riding over here. Quick, be cool. Don't do anything stupid Alex. "Hey, who're you? New guy from Camp Jupiter?">well?
>>40139375 see >>40138833
>>40139518I dunno I rode a golden stag here. Looks like I got dumped into Greco-Roman mythology.
>>40139518"Aha, no. I'm Alex. I just helped a damn fine stag with golden horns kick some demon dog thing's shit in, and I got this." Hold up the piece of antler. "You're very pretty. Wanna go see a movie some time?"
>>40139548Being a monster hunter would be really dumb anyway.At least in Supernatural, when you kill something it stays dead, and whenever new monsters, they're new monsters. The old monster had kids before you cut it's head off. Big whoop.In this series, the minotaur that Percy kills in the 5th book is the same one he kills in the first book which is the same one Theseus killed. They're all the same monsters from the myths, because they die, go to Tartarus, and after awhile they're reformed. It's a losing battle.>>40139518>camp jupiterYESYESYESYESYESYEYSYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYES

"Aha, no. I'm Alex. I just helped a damn fine stag with golden horns kick some demon dog thing's shit in, and I got this." Hold up the piece of antler. "You're very pretty. Wanna go see a movie some time?""Um...no, strange lady on a winged horse. I'm Alex. There was a giant dog, and some deer with horns made out of gold, and now a dragon wrapped around a tree. I'm pretty sure this is all a dream, so might as well try this. Wanna go see a movie some time?""First off, you aren't in a dream. You're a demigod. You know your mortal parent...""My mom""Okay. Your dad is a Greek god. Don't worry, he'll claim you by the end of the week. One of our councilors, Percy set it up a few years ago. There's a few exceptions, but you'll probably get claimed soon" the mounted girl sounds wistful, sounds like it took her a while to be claimed. "Second, we'll get you to Chiron and he can answer all your questions">do you have any urgent questions you want? This is gonna be the info dump for the thread
>>40139989Ignore the top quote, I forgot to delete it when I was writing
>>40139989Ask who her god parent is.
>>40139989Wait, you're saying the Greek gods are real?What is a demigod?What do you mean "claimed"?Who is Chiron?Who are you?And I'm still waiting on the movie question.
>>40139989"Uh. What the fuck is going on?"also >>40140182
>>40139989So why is this camp named after a Roman god?

>>40139989>>40140386This please, we're a tad bit confused, course that might be due to the fact we did leave sanity behind oh some hundred miles ago so hey there's taht!
>>40140316"Yes, you'll get used to it. Some people are Roman though. You should see the fights that Greeks and roman kids have when they have the same parent.

>>40140747Well, Megan, this is a lot to take in. Anywhere I could just sit for awhile? Maybe get a bite to eat?aw yiss time to cuddle up during movie night
>>40140747"Oh cool. I take it you guys aren't gonna be as cool about alcohol as my mom is?"
>>40140747>How do you know all this stuff?
>>40140747"How is it determined whether someone with an Olympian parent is Greek or Roman? Is there any meaningful difference?"
>>40140908"The orientation film. It'll explain a lot.">>40140888"Sorry, camp half blood is 100% dry. The dome stops all alcohol from entering. One of mr.D's policies. Any that hits the dome, turns to diet coke. You can get any nonalcoholic drinks you want though.">>40140828Sure, the unclaimed all tend to eat together. Dinners soon , I'll show you there after you talk with Chiron."I'm gonna write up the next turn if you guys don't have any more questions
>>40140747"Greek and Roman stuff huh? Does that mean I get chariot? Oh, or a Cool helmet?"
>>40141120That's enough for now, I think Chiron might be the official infodump man
>>40141120>Does this dome stop people from leaving? Am I stuck here?
>>40141120>Sorry, camp half blood is 100% dry.WHY
dang I was kind of hoping we could get zeros or Hecate as our God parent. What are some badass Godfathers we could get?
>>40141238Because Big D is under prohibition and takes it out on everyone else. That's why they call him Big D.
>>40141120So do we get training...actually better idea do we just go see the oreintation film in the mean time? Better question! Whats the deal with the horn bit I got here?Also Op you might wanna continue the quest or something as so far its kinda dragging on here...
>>40141238Middle to high school kids, dude>>40141353We could still get Hecate.http://camphalfblood.wikia.com/wiki/Cabins

His dad's pretty cool tooMegan walks her hors-Pegasus with you to the big farm house. It's white with blue trim, three stories with Christmas lights on the porch. Another glance at them, and they shift into little balls of flame. A man in a wheelchair is sitting in front of a table, playing cards with a short pudgy guy and a guy with goat legs. A saytr, that's what they're called. "Hello, how might it Megan? And who is your friend? I don't believe we've met. I'm Chiron, you may have heard of me. I'm the trainer here in camp half blood." The wheelchair bound guy says, then places a card on the table. "If you don't have any questions, I'll have Megan take you to see the orientation movie">last big info dump
>>40141471I thought Chiron was a centaur
>>40141585he iscurrently, he is in his hidden form, where he is wheelchair-bound.
>>40141471Major or minor god?I hope it's minor.

>Dad turns out to be Hermes...We take after our mom more.
I'm kinda hoping for a big curveball in terms of the parent. After all, who says it has to be a dad? If goddesses can birth kids immaculately, then the gender of their partner shouldn't be particularly important.
>>40141963Hermes was p cool in the books, from what I remember
>>40142016Maybe Hypnos and we can have sleep overs all the time... but probably unlikely since we don't seem to be narcoleptic.
"Now, I'll let you go. Enjoy the film"You follow the blond girl, to a small building attached to a cabin made of mud and a thatched roof. The movie has the old 70's style you see constantly, with clips of the various activities at camp half blood. There's the climbing wall with real lava, pegisii stables, chariot races, capture the flag, lanyard making, sword fighting, alchemy, and sing alongs. After the orientation video, you walk with Megan to the stables and put her Pegasus into one of the fields. Together, you walk to a large paved area with wooden picnic tables. There's no roof, which seems kinda silly seeing how you're in long beach. Megan claims it never rains here, yet another piece of magic you don't understand. Kids, from second graders up to a couple of college age, swarm the tables as a horn echoes across the valley. Girls come out of the woods, quite literally. They push out of the trees, their skin and hair tinged green. Barbecue is on the menu, with fresh vegetables that shouldn't be frowning this time of year. You begin to take a bite of your steak, until everyone stands up and throws some of their food into fires at the ends of the tables. Following them, you cut off a piece of your steak, then fling it into the fire with a potatoes slathered in butter. "Hey dad, don't really know what I'm doing, but here goes. Thanks for not killing me with a lightning bolt or turning me into a duck. Feel free to claim me when you have the time. Peace...or war. If you're ares I guess" you think as you throw the food into the fire. A smell like fresh cookies and perfect barbecue, mixed with fruit and fried foods. It's not how burning food is supposed to smell, but you're not gonna complain.
>>40142016good point, there is still hope for Eris
>>40142016>inb4 our mother who raised us since birth was A FUCKING GODDESS THE WHOLE TIME
>>40142266>a goddess raising her own kidThat would make her Hestia, because she's the only one who actually seems to truly value family that way. That would also make us nonexistent, because Hestia never had any children.

>>40142342Well it wouldn't have been the first time a god broke an oath
The next day, you are given a sheet of paper with your class schedule. Given isn't really the word, seeing how it was just a paper airplane that flew though the window of the unclaimed cabin. You try out each class, most are focused on combat. Archery, sword fights, blacksmithing, tactics(taught by a grey eyed girl), team based weapons, gymnastics, wrestling. You excel in your last class, and swords weren't too hard. All of the instructors are betting on your dad, Aphrodite has the longest odds. >wanna guess who is is?Three days pass like that, with Ancient Greek lessons as well. Oddly enough, the Greek comes naturally. Latin is harder, but still better than English. A magic megaphone covers the camp with sound, announcing that tonight will be a game of capture the flag. Romans versus Greeks. As far as you know, you'll be on the Greek team. Sorry, got pulled away and writing up the next scenes
>>40142365It would be the first time a god deviated from their nature.The Big 3 couldn't keep it in their pants because that's who they were.Hera doesn't have any demigod children because she's the goddess of marriage, so it would be contrary to her nature to cheat.
>>40142400Hopefully we contacted our mom at some point during that time skip, let her know we're alright.
>>40142400Loki, cause why not?
>>40142400>good at wrasslin>okay at swordsNothing really to go on
>>40142445A minor God associated with Ares?>>40142414Well it would make for a big twist in any case
>>40142400Probably just Ares or a minor god, unless we get thrown a curveball like male sex not technically breaking Athena's chastity.
>>40142444Did some looking.Rick Riordan wrote another series about Egyptian mythos shit that's canon with this series, and he's writing a new series with Norse mythos.So, yeah, Loki is entirely possible and we're about to get shipped up north.>>40142507Nike? She's got a cabin
>>40142400Heracles is a god. Technically.
>>40142562>Rick Riordan wrote another series about Egyptian mythos shit that's canon with this series, and he's writing a new series with Norse mythos.It is also hinted that China might have there own gods.
>>40142400Is our mom Palaestra?
>>40142562Pretty sure we're Greek, given that we learned that language the fastest.Just in case:>How easy is it to learn other languages, like Nordic?
>>40142625Yeah, but it's not like the Norse pantheon just doesn't exist at all
>>40142562Maybe? I can't think of many other martial-inclined goddesses. Possibly Eris?
>>40142612Son of Chi You confirmed.>>40142650Maybe. It's just really, really unlikely - a distant relative at most.
>>40142532Actually it was stated in the books that Athena's children are more the physical manifestation of Athena Vulcan Mind-Melding with mad scientists.

After a early dinner, tables are set out completely empty. Chiron, standing up on his horse legs, announces the rules of the game. You must grab the flag and return it you your side. Killing will result in dessert privileges will be taken away from two weeks. With a sweep of his arms, arms and armor appear on the tables. People swarm the tables, pulling cuirasses on over camp shirts and hefting shields. The Romans grab spears with blunt heads, sharp enough to catch in shields. You get a sword and large round shield, the bronze, leather, and wood surprisingly light. Your helmet and cuirass are as well, and the sword well balanced"Okay Alex, you're gonna be on the offensive. Follow the horde, and don't get lost. The Romans love fortifications, and they had two hours to build. Don't kill anyone, we start making s'mores this week" a black haired guy says, his green eyes almost covered by his helmet. He pulls a pen out of his pocket, then holds a leaf bladed sword after he pulls off the cap. The horn sounds, and your team slams into the roman legion that's formed up across the stream. A wall of water slams part of the roman team, sending their armored bodies crashing into each other. You rush forward, pushing against the wall of rectangular shields. A hard push sends your opponent to the ground, and you leap over him. You bounce on top of an upraised shield, jumping past the massed infantry. >attack them from behind>run, follow the other Greeks>write in

Been writing, sorry for not responding
You whack at the unprotected calves of the Romans with the flat of your sword. Should've worn pants, you skirt wearing pansies. A son of Apollo rushes past you, his helmet polished to a mirror finish. You try to follow him, but he's carrying only a spear, instead of your sword and round shield. He leaps like a gazelle through the brush, while you break through the branches like a bull in a china shop. At least your shield takes most of the impacts. You break away into a clearing, earthen walls ten feet tall topped with armored figures meaning scorpions. As you watch, a spear flies from the weapon to stab through a shield, leg, and into the ground. A Pegasus swoops down, and a medic pulls the injured girl onto his mount.A javelin stabs your shield, bouncing off the bronze. You duck behind it a bit, two other Greeks forming a miniature testudo. One guy's face is split by a blinding smile, a son of ares. The other is a girl in form fitting armor, bronze conformed to the shape of her body. Aphrodite, most of them have that kind of armor. In front of you, a square earthen fort houses the flag. It's guarded with ten ballista, mounted on the walls. Each one has four legionaries guarding them. In the center of each wall, a guy stands with what looks like a flamethrower. Might want to avoid them. >battle plan?
>>40143476Put yourself in their shoes. Predict when they're going to fire, and try to dodge. We'll only have to avoid two or three shots, and if we can get a group to follow after while their aim is on us, we might be able to overwhelm one of their positions.
>>40143476Flying testudo with hoplates, Ares Boy trying to burn the scorpions and ballista, and someone magik up some ramp ladders
>>40143476Hoplite run til we're under the ballista's arc of fire, then flank around and take out the ballista one by one.
>>40143476Avoid the ballerinas at all costs, we'd never survive even a glancing blow
>>40143476Run back into the woods, flank around. It'll be slow and take time, but hopefully will be worth it.
>>40143476try to see if we can use any powers to help us
>>40138906>>40138949>>40139518>Whatever noise a deer makes>Beating the shore like it owes it money>Puff the purple dragonThis is gold.
>>40143476The problem with legionaries was that they are too ridged and when scattered cannont fight effectively. Short range of their spears and gladius are also limitations.We need something to break them up, then take them down piecemeal.Who can conguer up water to turn that wall into a mud pit?
>>40143476Ten crossbows, four sides - at least one of the sides is weaker than the other. Have Ares take out its flamer with the javelin they so politely gave us, then try to scurry as best we can.
>>40143706I found some sort of deer gif so I'm posting it.
>>40143691The spinning makesthem such effective killers
>>40143700We don't even know what powers we have so it's going to be a total shonen moment
>>40143771>>40143476Addendum: See if we have any way to break the wall down.
>>40143664>hoplitethe only correct answer if we are greek
>>40143811Didn't Roman tactics historically defeat the hoplite formation in battle?
>>40143867Can this be canon?
>>40144102>mfw i know nothing of ancient history because american education just glosses over it unless you are at university level going for a doctorate
"Okay, stay together. You" you look over to the son of Ares, "focus on the crewed weapons. What's with the flamethrowers?""Supped up fire extinguishers. They can blast you from twenty yards out. As long as we stick together, and keep our shields up, we'll be fine.""Cool, thanks. Me and Aphrodite go for the flag. Once you get the flag, drop your shield and run. I'll hold them off till we win" you look over at the daughter of Aphrodite, she nods and pulls the sword from its sheath. "ARES!""APHRODITE!""TO BE ANNOUNCED!"With your terrifying war cries, you charge at the space between two ballista. It takes a moment for the weapons to adjust, and thanks to your diagonal charge, they have to be lead your miniature testudo. One fires early, the bolt glancing off a shield and straight upwards. Hopefully it doesn't hit a medic. The second aims well, the blunt head catching in the bronze of the girl's shield. The yard long wood and iron weapon sticks in it, her arm dragging with the extra weight. The eight legionaries close on your trio, dropping from the wall and forming a U around you. The son of Ares mutters an instruction in Greek. On the count of three, you ram your shields into theirs. Their combined mass stops your allies, but you shoulder aside two guys in steel lamellar. The rest of your group pours through the gap in the wall, expanding it into a wide hole. You stand against the wall, ringing the helmets of the fallen Romans. They won't be fighting for the rest of the day. >climb the wall>last stand>run away>write inRoll, 1d100

>>40144166I was lucky enough to learn a lot of this shit back in middle school and high school. I don't know why but I had some extremely based history teachers in my time
>>40144302You are wearing a Corinthian helmet, with the horse hair plumeWriting
>>40144401Hey, I have a that!
>>40144353i had a good world history teacher for middle school, but you know the way it's structured. breeze though all the ancient stuff and only really focus on the last 300-ish years.>>40144401is the plume going back to front or side to side?
>>40144420Back to front with white horse hair. Side to side is for councilors.
>>40144420My entire sixth grade history course was entirely devoted to Ancient History followed by a breeze through of the Middle Ages through the Crusades. My 7th and 8th grade classes were all pretty much last 300ish years and modern stuff though
>>40144541fucking lucky. i meant to say high school, as my middle school didn't do world history. it was american history and world geography.
The only time I actually learned this stuff is when I joined a club that took a field trip to Greece.
>>40144617were you approached by greek neo-pagans?
"πάνω από τον τοίχο" the son of Ares says, your brain instantly understanding it. The corset waisted and armored girl drops her shield, then spins along the sloped wall to hide behind you. You step forward to give her room, hiding behind the massive shields from the stabbing short swords. The slight girl pushes against your hips, walking her hands up the wall. She steps up onto your shoulders, 140 pounds of flesh, bone and metal. Added onto your height, she climbs over the wall easily. Two guys fall from the wall, swords half out of their scabbards. They land on top of the legionaries, leaving all five open to strikes to the head. Your other partner throws his shield up to the girl on the wall, then runs up the wall with a strength borne of years of conditioning. Left with a single opponent, you slam his shield again and again. Each strike reverberates down your arm, but it's a lot better than what the other guys feeling.A sword skitters off your cuirass, stabbing into the hard packed earth wall. You pull him forward by his extended arm, then slam your pommel into his arm. Something breaks, and he falls to the ground gripping it. You slip the round shield onto your back by its carrying strap, then are pulled up the wall by the son of Ares. One of the guys with fire extinguishers is jogging towards you, his weapon pointed at your feet. The flag is planted in the center of the fort, with five people guarding it. Other Greeks are swarming the walls, the fire extinguishers are blasting the people climbing the walls, but there's only four of them to the thirty Greeks>battle plan?
>>40144860Wait at the top of the wall, pull a relay. Someone gets the flag, throws it to us, then we throw it to someone already on the ground, who doesn't have to fight through legionnaires to get on their way out.
>>40144860If we got rid of those four guys on the walls with the extinguishers I bet our thirty troops could swarm the place real easy. Maybe we should all Gang up to take a few out before going for the flag?
>>40144860be the true son of arkantos.pick up a spear and throw it at the guys with the fire extinguishers
>>40144860Javelin at the guy approaching then charge with shield up while he's distracted.

You pull one of the bolts out from a quiver by the ballista, spinning it around to face the legionary with the air cannon. You fling it at him, just as the daughter of Demeter taught you. It flies off line, missing the roman by a few inches. The son of Ares follows your lead, and throws the bolt at the young roman. A metallic *clank* is followed by the bolt being shot out of the tank on the roman's back. He flies off the wall, propelled by the sudden burst of compressed air. You take a moment to thank the goddess of luck, then slide down the interior side of the wall to the courtyard on your shield. A sword chops at your head, catching in the bronze of your helmet. The strap breaks when he pulls it back, and the bucket shaped helm flies towards the flag. Another Greek has already grabbed it, but is surrounded by four Romans. She's using the flag as a quarter staff, stabbing at the faces of the legionaries and ringing their heads like gongs. "THROW ME THE FLAG" you shout at the girl in Greek, one of the Romans looking over in understanding. Despite it, the girl launches it toward you. It lands point down, the purple silk spreading against the packed earth. You grab hold of it as the Romans swarm you, only to move on when you throw it over the wall. Someone curses in Latin, followed by a "thanks" in Greek. All that's left is to wait, and you get to spend it fighting against ten legionaries. Your sword is longer than theirs, and you drum on their shields from out of range. A horn sounds, followed by everyone pulling off their helmets and putting down their shields. Now that it's over, your sword and shield feel as heavy as lead.
>>40145625>>40145423shit wrong one
>>40144860Throw our shield at fire extiguisher guy, Captain America style. That is the reason we're using round shields, right?
>>40145652I REMEMBER THAT GAME!
>>40145760As do I!
"Hey buddy, you got something in your hair" a roman legionary says, one of the people you were fighting a moment before. You run your hands through your black hair, but can't find anything. "Stop being a douche Harry. You're getting claimed," one of the Greeks. You look up, a blue light the size of a basketball is floating above your head, holding something. A medic pulls out a digital camera, takes a picture, then hands you it. A wooden club is crossed by a quiver of arrows, all set in front of a lion head. Chiron, who'd galloped over when a medic paged him, takes the camera from your hand and examines the picture. "Hail, Alex (the hell is your last name?), son of Hercules, Son of Zeus, Patron of Heroes, Doorkeeper of Olympus, God of Strength and Bravery"With that, I think well close this chapter of half blood quest. Any comments or advice?

>>40145933>one quarter god...you realize Hercules IS a god right?The son of two gods?Even earned his place as a god much more than most of the primary gods?
>>40145886space out the writing and focus on the world around the character. some minor grammatical errors but overall decent
>>40145974that's gonna be awkward when we meet him, also does this mean we get to call Zeus and Hera Gramma and Grandpa
>>40145886>Son of HerculesYes. Awesome.Can we vote on Megans divine parent? I still think we should have a child of Tyche on the group. Tyche is cool.
>>40146015Zeus, yes. Hera isn't the mom. Alcmene is. In the Disney movie Hercules is the son of Hera and Zeus though
Probably not since Hera isn't Herc's mom. His mom was a mortal Zeus banged. Hera was super pissed about it and made his life hell. It was so bad he killed himself.
>>40146075I thought Herc died after putting on a poisonous animal hide his wife gave him, who in turn received it from a centaur that tried to rape her?
>>40146189Hera orchestrated that, and the poison was just so painful he killed his second wife and set of kids, then burned himself. Hera was also the reason he killed his first wife.Been a while since I read it, so I might have gotten some wires crossed but he def burned himself to death, I remember that.
>>40146237Oh, also just remembered. Hercules was his Latinized name, in the original Greek he was Heracles, which meant "Glory of Hera" or somesuch because his mother was trying to save him from her wrath.

>>40147540I think Erebus just made a small typo. OR ,aybe it`s well known that Hercules likes his Roman name better because his greek name means "Glory of Hera" so people use that name even for his greek form.
