o.0

I know :P It's going to be pretty lengthy but I'm trying to give some background information for the player in case they come across unfamiliar name's in the game I'm creating for EGD.

Deucalion and Pyrrha
Deucalion, the son of Prometheus, and Pyrrha, the daughter of Epimetheus, were husband and wife. Deucalion was a kind son and he went everyday to the Caucasus Mountains to try to ease some of his fathers’ unbearable pain. Since Prometheus (whose name meant forethought) was wise and could see into the future, he told Deucalion of the great flood that Zeus was planning on using to wipe out the inhabitants of the earth. Prometheus had Deucalion and Pyrrha construct a boat which would hold all the animals of the earth and save them from drowning in the flood. When the flood came Deucalion and Pyrrha were well prepared and saved all the animals that came on the boat. They landed on Mount Parnassus where they received advice from the Oracle of Delphi to throw the “bones” of mother earth over their shoulders to repopulate the earth. Deucalion and Pyrrha figured out that these “bones” that the Oracle referred to were actually stones. So Deucalion and Pyrrha threw stones over their shoulders and once those stones touched the ground, a new and stronger race of humans sprouted up from the dampened ground.

Prometheus’ Punishment
To punish Prometheus, Zeus chained him on the Caucasus Mountains with unbreakable, adamanite chains. Prometheus could escape only on two conditions. One was if Prometheus told Zeus who would dethrone him, which Prometheus refused to do. The other was if first, an immortal volunteered to die for Prometheus and second, if a mortal unchained him and killed the eagle Zeus would place there. This eagle was to eat Prometheus’ liver every day. Since Prometheus was a titan, he was immortal, and his liver grew back each time. Because of this, he survived the eagle’s feast, but his cries of agony could be heard over a distance of many miles…

The Great Flood
Zeus began to look upon the human race that were infected with all these evils and began to become disgusted with them. On the earth below he saw them lying, stealing, cheating, lusting and worshipping false idols that they made all kinds of statues and figures for. He decided to wipe the world clean of this ugly race and decided to do so by creating a flood.

Pandora’s Box
(Warning, sometimes Greek Mythology is sexist. This sexism is most evident in the next tale.) As punishment for the humans cheating the gods, Zeus had Hephaestus create a human of stunning beauty. Aphrodite taught this human how to act and gave her lavish gifts of wealth and jewelry. Zeus gave the human a lying tongue and a deceptive heart but what he was most happy with was that at the bottom of her heart he gave her irresistible curiosity. He then gave her a box, which he told her NEVER to open, but did not tell her what the box contained. This human was the first woman to be created. They gave the beautiful woman as a gift to Epimetheus. Though Prometheus warned his brother never to accept gifts from the gods, Epimetheus was so won over with the woman’s beauty that he gladly accepted. Epimetheus made sure Pandora didn’t open the box, but one day he had to leave for a while to take care of some business. He told Pandora not to open the box while he was gone, but everyday leading up to that she had been staring at the box wondering what could be inside. After a few minutes of Epimetheus’ absence she couldn’t take it any more and decided to open the box to get a little peek and what was inside. When she opened it all kinds of evils like greed, lust, corruption, envy, pride, and deception flew out of the box and infected the world that they inhabited. Pandora closed the box to save one last good thing before it flew out of the box though. It was Hope.

Cheating the gods
Since the humans had no fur they quickly became cold as the temperature decreased. Begging for warmth, the humans laid on the cold floors of the earth and began to slowly die. Because Prometheus loved his creations so much, he decided to steal fire from Hestia’s hearth in Mount Olympus and then brought it down to the human’s so that they could have warmth. Zeus found out but was not mad once he smelled the delicious meat cooking over the fire. Zeus decided he’d come down to earth and choose what share of the meat he would like to take each time the humans sacrificed and animal. Zeus obviously planned on taking the best for himself and the other gods and goddesses on Mount Olympus. However, Prometheus hated to see that the only meat the humans were going to have left were low in nutrients and very awful in taste. So Prometheus taught them to put their worst meat beneath a cloak of good meat and season it so that it would smell good to Zeus. When Zeus came to choose what meat he wanted, he chose the best-looking meat, like Prometheus had planned. However, when Zeus realized he had been cheated he grew mad with rage.

The Creation of Man
 Prometheus, along with his brother Epimetheus, had created all the creatures in the world. Zeus had given them this task and gave them a box of gifts, which were to be bestowed to the brothers’ final creations. Epimetheus hastily created all kinds of animals and since he was done sooner he was able to give them all a lot of the gifts that Zeus had stored in the box. On the other hand, Prometheus had taken his time to sculpt beautiful humans that resembled the looks of the gods and goddesses. He made his creations out of soft clay, which Athena breathed life into when he was finished sculpting them. By the time he was done, Epimetheus had already given the gifts such as, fur, tracking noses, night-vision eyeballs, strength, and fantastic running speed to the animals he created. All that was left in the box for Prometheus to give to the humans was Love.

Mt. Parnassus
The city of Delphi rests on a slope of Mount Parnassus. Many people traveled far and wide to reach the sacred temple of Apollo, which contained the Oracle of Delphi. This oracle was said to be the most sacred oracle of ancient times and before making important decisions, many people would come to visit the oracle to receive their prophecy.  Greeks considered Mt. Helicon to be the home of the Muses. However, the Romans came to believe the true home of the Muses was in fact Mount Parnassus. In Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Deucalion and Pyrrha land on Mt. Parnassus at the end of the great flood where they are told by the oracle to repopulate the world by throwing the “bones” of the great mother behind them.

Apollo
Apollo was the son of Zeus and Leto along with his twin sister, Artemis. He was the god of music, prophecy, colonization, medicine, archery (hunting), poetry, dance, intellectual inquiry, and the carer of herds and flocks. In Rome he was known as Phoebus Apollo for he was also known as the god of light. His main domain, however, is largely the arts and music. He conducted the Muses, a choir of brilliant musicians who were also goddesses. One of Apolo’s amazing feats, aforementioned, was when he killed Pytho on Delphi.

Apollo had a son, Ascelpius, who was the god of healing. Unfortunately, Ascelpius’ mother, Coronis, was punished for falling in love with Ischys while she was still pregnant with Ascelpius. Apollo asked his sister Artemis, goddess of the hunt, to kill Coronis for her crime. Artemis did so and while Coronis’ body burned on the funeral pyre, Apollo pulled out Ascelpius…

All games MUST be PUBLISHED ON JULY 7th, no later and no earlier.


Is it okay if we already published our game as a private game but are releasing it to the public on the 7th?

Oracle of Delphi
An oracle can be a priest, priestess, or other creature whom a god was believed to have spoken through. The oracle can also be a location or shrine where words of the gods are spoken. In the game, you will see that the Golden Statue of Apollo is referred to as the Oracle and is the object which the gods shall speak to you. In history, however, there is in fact a golden statue of Apollo along with the omphalos within the temple of Delphi. This temple contained Apollo’s oracle.

Delphi
In Greek mythology, it is said that Zeus released two eagles from opposite ends of the earth to locate the exact center of the world. It has been said that these two eagles met at Delphi and that is where Zeus placed a large, egg-shaped stone called the omphalos, which means “navel” (center of the body).

The earth goddess named Gaia, who also was the mother of all things created, placed an oracle in Delphi which she guarded with a large serpent called Pytho. Apollo decided to kill Pytho and he forced Gaia to leave Delphi. Ever since, the oracle that Apollo placed there has been known as the Oracle of Delphi.

Athens
The patron goddess of this ancient Greek city-state was Athena, the goddess of wisdom and war. Though she known for her terrific fighting skills, Athena always uses logic and brilliant tactics to win in battles and lead her armies to victory. Because of this, Athenians value knowledge above everything and have erected colleges in honor of Athena.

Mythical Beings
I
Book of Lore

Our story begins within Syphus Hall, a dorm room for the Arch-Scholar of the Athens College. You have studied for many years to get to this position, and for once you finally get a good night’s sleep. Yet in your dreams you see a hand rise from the gates of Tartarus and break open the bars that keep him imprisoned. Then, you wake up suddenly to the sounds of screaming as your instructor frantically tries to tell you what is going on. It is once again time to resume your journey…
