Gods and Monsters and Heroes

Game Master Daxter

This is the story of a time long ago, a time of myth and legend. The gods used to be petty and cruel plaguing mankind with suffering. However, that time has long passed. The gods themselves have grown out of their petty squabbles and feuds and have realized that they were wasting their gifts. The gods are far closer to politicians than the lords they were in the time of old but no less powerful. In fact the gods themselves now live on Earth in the Hall of Olympieion. The building is less of a temple and more like a government building. The campaign takes place on ancient earth and will mostly center around the country of Greece and its neighboring countries.

Loot!!

Okay, I made a list (because I heart lists), and it looks like we have seven actual submissions:

  • Kali Soy - Human Ranger
  • Galoria Ginodesa - Half-elf Rogue
  • Varocles Seaworthy - Dwarven Cleric of Poseidon
  • Amphitryon - Half-elf Gloomblade Fighter (Joint submission with Kyronai)
  • Kyronai - Half-elf Bonded Witch (Joint submission with Amphitryon)
  • Teledoros - Human Arrowsong Minstrel Bard (Shared background with Polyοἶνος)
  • Polyοἶνος - Human Bacchanal Skald (Shared background with Teledoros)

    Galoria, your character sheet says Warden (which is a ranger archetype), but your submission post and abilities indicate a no-archetype rogue. Let me know if I have you wrong on the list.

    We also have a couple posts expressing interest, but I haven't seen an actual submission from them. If I missed you on the list, please speak up!


  • Useful list!

    2x Ranged (Bard/Ranger)
    2x Melee (Fighter/Rogue...though spear and dagger are very different)
    3x Casters (Cleric/Witch/Skald)

    Also 3x Humans 3x Half-Elves, 1x Dwarf

    All in all it looks pretty balanced!

    ”Balanced? With all of those longuns and pointy eared freaks?” Varocles just shakes his head in disgust.

    I believe that the polite term is “knife-ear”

    Varocles responds, ”I’ll remember that, should I decide to be polite about it.”

    "Knife...you wouldn't be pulling his leg with that one, would you sir?"


    Thank you Andostre for making the list! And yes Knife-Ear is on the list of good fantasy slurs. I will officially end recruitment in about 7 hours once I'm off work.


    Bluff: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (13) + 1 = 14

    ”How could you think that? What, I’d sooner pull a dwarf’s beard than his leg! Not that I could do either, given that I am standing up.”

    Petty much nailed down the crunch. I'm in Bonnie Scotland (GMT+0)

    Regards background...

    Born to a rumoured dalliance betwixt a Satyr and his mother - one of the famed prophetic Sibyls, Polyοἶνος was always fated for a higher purpose of the gods.

    He grew up in the rolling hillside of Mount Parnassus and early in his life he was always fascinated with the troubadours and entertainers who would travel through to Delphi to perform honorific Paean and Prosodion to the gods and heroes.

    Whilst his mother was an oracle of Apollo, the rambunctious faun-blooded youth preferred the festivals Dithyrambs; celebratory songs performed especially in dedication to Bacchus the god of wined joy.

    Possessing of a divine voice, and bawdy flair young Polyοἶνος soon fell in with the fellowship of poets, musicians and thespians. His education in life, love and libations saw him devote his body and innate talents to the life of an itinerant skald in service of his .

    Bacchus too saw his potential as a servant and apostle, oft sending him divine guidance whilst the carouser was in his cups. Of course no-one believed the colourful warrior-poet, but he remained firm in his conviction of Bacchus' higher purpose for his strong voice and arm.

    So it was that after his latest transcendent vision (after copious jugs of wine) he found himself stumbling into Athens, and the promises of the famous Demeter Harvest Festival... Seeking company and further divine inspiration the skald soon found kindred souls and troubadours to share with wine, song and (mis)adventures with. Amongst his new companions the young bard Teledoros impressed him as one almost rivalling him in talent and charisma!

    "A potential Iolaus to my own Herculean talent!" Polyοἶνος would toast, jape and toast some more...

    Then I’m roughly 40 minutes to 4 hours south of you, haha.


    Google is telling me that Houston is also GMT-5, so I don't know what to tell you.

    Houston is GMT-5 right now, Washington DC is GMT-4 right now, when we “Fall back” we’ll be at -6 and -5 respectively.
