I'm thinking about making a character based around Greek mythology. So, I would like to know if anyone's using Greek mythology; And if so, how?

Also, what is the state of mythology in the CVnU?

I've made two Greek mythology characters tonight. I'm quite big on Greek mythology. My angle on it is normally a Demigod warrior.

We had a discussion and I control Ares and Hera. Hera has now left Zeus, and she and Ares, Zeus' least favorite child, are now married and plotting to take over Olympus together. Hera is also plotting to overthrow Ares, because it turns out she's a Lesbian, and she's going to work with Clara Mass and try to swing Abigail in an antagonizing way, because her family lineage has something to do with the gods. This, I haven't sorted out yet, but I was given control over them, so I can make it up as I wish. Of course, I'm kidding.

@spectrion: Well, thank you. ^_^ Execution is where it really matters. Though I really do plan on the little Clarice part.

@jaegerjaquez: I'll be on the look out for that. Should be a good read.

@spectrion: Just for that, I'll time it for when you disappear, that way there's one less pressure of someone seeing me do not-well.

@jaegerjaquez: You know I've been here for about six months consecutively right? When will everyone realize I ain't goin' no where no matter how hard I try? xD

@i_like_swords: Ok......

@spectrion said:

@jaegerjaquez: You really had me going for a second. lol

@jaegerjaquez: Me as well, I was like "Noooooooooooooooooo!!!!"

LOL

So far, this is what I have....

  • he's a son of Orran and Atalanta.
  • Orran is one of Zeus's oldest half-mortal children.

So most of what I'll be using, is Atalanta and her journey (heavily), the Kraken, A Phoenix, and a few minor greek monsters, and the city of ancient Piraeus.

@superstay: My Greek Mythology knowledge is based on the animated movie Hercules and a couple of miscellaneous stories here and there. :)

@jaegerjaquez: LOL How?

Mercy, Andres and Duchess are the only three that have anything to do with Greek Mythology so far as I know.

@superstay: I think it is mostly Greece but I think there is a few Native Americans stuff around.

@superstay: Nobody's touched Norse, Hindu, and Egyptian mythology. Wando does have some stuff with Egyptian mythology but I'm not sure he still RPs.

One of my characters had an interaction with Anubis, Hades and Lucifer, that is all the mythology for me.

@antonio_knightfall: Clara's role in GM still confuses me haha.

You said she wasn't an Olympian but she was related?

I have an Artemis account and therefore at this point am the one controlling her.

I also have a daughter of Artemis account.

@morte_knightfall: @shadowswordmaster: Yeah, I guess Greek is just the funnest to play around with

@_steel_: @antonio_knightfall: Who's an Olympian?

@fate_doctor: Wow, talk about hell on Earth

But, the reason why I asked, is because I wanted to put them in a new realm. Like a 'God realm', separated from this modern, meta-being infested Earth. I was just wondering if that would conflict with some else's use of them. Also, I don't know if I'm high enough of the RPG totem pole, to make this sort of universal change to the CVnU.

@morte_knightfall:

Well, I'm talking to Mercy about it....And I'm thinking about making a Power Girl type scenario. Where my character is from an alternate reality version of the ancient world and it's gods.

That way I wouldn't conflict with anyone
