Lords of Olympus

Grade: Interlude Log following the Battle of the world tree of midgard

Grace speaking to Erichthonius (Charioteer to Zeus and her Brother) following the return to Olympus:

It started with Hades and the Lion of Olympus. I was a new idea, but ideas are not truly new. Some ideas dissipate but the wave they make across the skein of reality echoes back. For gods like my Mother and Zeus Baselius they are ideas who emerged from the great egg. The dance of Khaos and Phanes left these echoes fully formed as the tapestry of the multiverse formed. Though I have now touched the shores of three others.

I had taken to service for Aphrodite in Sparta in a reflection of the old world. Hercules brought her son to me. Her favor led me to a temple to my mother. There I guided the boys hand. A murder mystery that pointed blame to his father. We found a prince of dreams. Spiro is eager and as libidinous in his mantle as his mother is in hers. But he is spawn of a titan and those rendered madness and chaos. Daniel is of the line of the Primordial.

Did they notice how these things played out? The people under the hill lead us to the lands of Chaos? The prisoner released in chaos ::The guardian of the burning sands::

We found secrets of Poseidon, Hera, and Dionysis. A war to come. The tapestry of the fates showing in the people the future of the gods. The three sisters showed much. And I provided mystic to Spiro….the young hero coming into his own. And it came to Eris. All those years on my earth and all those wars. And I came to her to arrange a meeting of peace.

Eris wanted the events to play out. It is to her nature. And in the end it was to mine. The fall of Zeus and the rise of Dionysus. That prophecy to come. Fragments of a legend of life and Spiro brings life back to the world of the Egyptians who sheltered us during the wars against Typhon. His reward returned the favor of our old hospitality. And then Zeus ends up being killed by this war that unites the Children of the Otherworld, The Sons and Daughters of Heliopolis, and the gods who sit at the crown of the world tree.

The shadow of Eris tracing its veins through Daniel. Discord sewn into the lands of the Sacred river. He opened Erebus’s will to us and the hand of Discord moved with us as our actions are transforming multiverses.

Waves coalescing around me the oldness of the ideas that formed me are taking root. Our actions have saved two other realms. We are now bound to it. We splice ourselves into the events unfolding around Zeus and we become something else. Deities that transcend multiverses. Deities whose power expands beyond just one multiverse.

Hubris is our family motto brother. But the truth is Spiro and Daniel are writing this tale in their heroism. I do my work in the Depths where my mysteries shine.

Episode 4.6

We had delved further into our adventure and, sadly, Spero left us. To where I had no idea. Grace and I delved into what seemed a tomb. There we came upon the ritual, and then, at that ritual, we saw someone escape. That person who escaped turned out to be an elemental of sort, and they did not know why they happened to be there. We dealt with them with haste, and discovered the ritual more, which turned out to be the process for releasing Sutekh the Destroyer from his dimensional prison. We stopped the ritual from fully going through, but the lands were chaotic, ignited with chaos storms. And the islands were called the islands of chaos.

Subtle, right?

Regardless, I personally met with a particular noble who gave me a wary eye, but told me that I was a person of the dream variety, and there were many like me, these dream walkers. He also handed me a star map, and I offered him a return of favor for his graces, and he wished for me to protect his daughter as she accompanied me on my adventures. I agreed, and hope that I can fulfill my promise absolutely.

Later on, in order to further deal with the Sutekh ordeal, I used scrying to get in contact with Hephaestus so he could send us weapons. We had an interesting conversation, and I myself felt a bit of sympathy for his overly flirtatious wife. Eventually he agreed to help. I returned to the island and then we got aid with our plight.

Episode 6

Journal Entry 6:

Once we started traveling in space and exited hyperspace, we encountered the Terran Confederation. They scanned our ship and our ship started flashing red. We then got in to a star battle with the confederation and started to go down to the world below us. Once on the world we got on a hover boat and headed to the temple we needed to go to. Once we got to the temple we saw a chained up Manticore being held by people. I immediately went to see and possibly help the Manticore. I asked to see if I could talk to the Manticore. I then went and talked to the Manticore to see if it was my Manti and it turned out that it was. Then a stormed gathered and made the people leave. Once the people left the stormed stopped. I then caught up with Manti and found out she had done some horrific things. But I moved past it and we then arrived at the temple. There was a barrier keeping us out. Daniel and Grace worked to take down the barrier while I let Manti eat the enemy. After the barrier was down we went inside the temple. But before we went in I made a metal igloo for Manti to sleep in. After went in we saw a deep water pool. We dived in to the pool after Daniel cast a spell allowing us to breath underwater. After that we saw a man dying and helped heal him and he told us what happened. Before we left I meditated and saw a prophecy/vision about my father. I told the group what I saw mostly. We left the temple and went to Atlantis. Once there we went to Poseidon’s court and told him what happened and then we made planned for the future.

Journal Entry Five:

After joining my friends again we set off to go to different land. But first Daniel went off on another quest with a nymph(Daughter of a centaur) girl. So me and Grace traveled on the Olympian Road. Once we finished traveling on the Olympian Road we arrived on a strange desert planet. Once there we saw a merchant caravan then they started to flee in all direction. At first I was confused then I saw a Giant Worm and immediately named it Floppsy. I tried to see if I could talk to it/tame it but it resisted so me and Grace and I had to fight it to protect the merchants. as we were fighting Floppsy I stabbed it in a part of its head that made it docile and I tamed it. After I tamed Floppsy I road it to a city. Once we got to the city I got off Floppsy and told him/her/it to go and wait for me. After that Grace and I found a Cantina by the name of Gamma Incel. But before we got to the bar I told grace About my little Adventure. We entered and I saw casino tables all around. I looked at Grace and she just nodded her head and I went Poof (Meaning I went to go play some games). Later while I was playing Grace called me over from the V.I.P section because she had found a captain (who was actually a Gynoid Assassin Pleasure bot) and a ship. (I had Won 22 Thousand Credits) After I was there Grace negotiated a price to use the captains ship and Grace offered to possibly enhance her (what ever that means). After that we went and boarded the ship. I simply stood inside it in amazement, Investigating it, planning an escape root and trying to find games to play.

Episode 4.5
To the Realm of Faerie

Journal entry 4.5:

While I was walking behind my friends I couldn’t move or talk and was summoned to a different realm. when I was summoned I was surrounded by a three foot wide circle of flowers. I jumped out of the ring and walked toward a mound of dirt and it talked to me. It took a human form and said it was the god Balor form the Irish Celtic pantheon and sent me on a quest to find the pieces of the holy grail. I went on the quest and found a boat. This boat had skeleton that’s ribs had necromantic runes etched on them. Spero then took its magical bones “honorably” and then sailed for two days. After two days I saw an Island surrounded by fog and went ashore. On the shore there was a row of swords sticking out of the shore. I continued on to explore the island and dueled a goddess and won. She called me dishonorable and I challenged her to a duel of wit and won. Then I asked who was that and found out she was The Morrigan and then I was summoned in front of my group.

Episode 4
Daniel Amada POV

I can say for certain, that my run in with these two godlings was peculiar to say the least. Their names were Grace and Spero, and they were calm and frazzled, respectively, upon my first impression. I had come upon them in a ball of sorts, a joyous occasion it should have been, which had devolved into a murder from the cult of Dionysus, the blood and gore painting the walls like the art project of a five year old. Crude. Earnest. No finesse. It was a butcher’s job to say the least, and the two godlings next to me seemed to be unphased by the entire endeavor.

I’ve always been a scared individual, however. Though my face does not show. It is not a particular piece of pride for me. I was rocked. The job was strikingly inhumane, to put it bluntly.

Regardless, we found out the cultists stole a crown, which seemed to be of utmost important for a ritualistic undertaking, which I’m still trying to gather information on. We will find out later, it seems.

Later on, Spero summoned Hermes. At will. T’was like Hermes was a magical fairy godmother. He just appeared in a puff of sparkles and smoke. I remained stoic, thanking my poker face.

Hermes unfortunately did not know anything about this matter. He disappeared, doing, again, a grand impression of a fairy. Sparkle, sparkle, puff, puff – gone.

So the group decided to go meet Ares (because of course that’s what they do, meet gods on a whim. Along the way, we came upon a minotaur in the temple of the god, who was compelled to attack us. We tried to talk to him, but my glamour remained ineffective, admittedly. Grace decided to deal with this matter in haste. She crushed the minotaur into paste into righteous fury.

I was amazed by her power, and terrified by her judgment. The minotaur was controlled, compelled, not doing anything wrong, yet she squashed him like a bug.

I wasn’t too happy about the proceedings. Not just for the brutality, nor my own human morality, but the fact it was a missed opportunity to garner more information. We could have knocked him out; I could have invaded his dreams. We would have understood the immortal being who had it out for us.

A shame. More mysteries remained.

We proceeded to meet Ares, and I found out Spero was a child of his lover, Aprhodite (I would say it’s a plot twist, but it made sense.) He seemed a bit lost on the whole matter of the situation too. Ah. Yes. Olympian competency at its finest.

Frankly, however, I was a bit shocked about the whole situation and still processing how all these divine beings just interacted. So forgive me if my next notes are scant in nature.

He agreed to aid us with his finest soldiers. And so he did. We met with them (and radiant and proud they were.) We also traveled further to another boat, and upon this boat, we saw the very realm and whether shake, as if the realm seemed to tear apart.

It was a reminder of the power I needed to garner.

We came upon an island, then, meeting a group of centaurs and magical warriors, who gifted us weapons and armors for our quest.

And that is the end of this first entry.

A new player enters the fray

Journal Entry Three:

When Hercules and I arrived in Sparta I asked him which God’s Temple I should visit, Hephaestus or Ares. He told me to visit Athena. So I followed his advice and on my way to the Temple I walked along side a fellow Red Head but I didn’t care and continued on my way. I went to a private worship room and asked Athena if she could help and teach me. Athena Asked me who was my divine parent and just told her Aphrodite (No one needs to know about my father). She said my mother was a bitch and i told her she was wrong and don’t talk about my mother that way. Then she said to her daughter to teach me as she pointed towards the door. From a crack in the door came Grace who was spying on me (creepy). She then lead me around Sparta to find Hercules to learn more of what to do. We found him in the Red Light district drunk and needed help walking so we both helped him walk by taking one arm each. He then proceed to puke and we both dodged. He told us where to go and so we went after taking a pit stop for clothes. We then both end up on an Earth that was completely colonized by the British. We are in ( ) and find out there is a party the the Royal Prince is attending. On the way we in counter a ( ) which makes me extremely uncomfortable. We sneak in and then find a women running and screaming covered in blood and gore.

Episode 2
Journeys into a land of Disappointment

Journal Entry Two:

So when I hatched from my cosmic egg I saw a big buff man wearing a Hawaiian dad shirt, cargo shorts and sandals. like I wrote earlier this made me very embarrassed because I was making a joke to Hades. But to my surprise both Hercules and Hades seemed to be talking to each other with out moving their mouths. So my curiosity got the better of me and I tried to join the conversation and got told by both Gods to not interrupt them while they were talking. So I shut up and let them finish talking and after they finished talking they decided that I would travel with Hercules to train, teach and get me ready for what ever they had planned. I was sad to see Hades leave but he told me he had things to take care of in the Underworld and that we would meet again. But before he left he gave me a gift the ability to travel through the Hadean Road. Once Hades had left Hercules let me get dressed and then we left and traveled back to my original home (Classical Earth still trying to understand that). Once there Hercules told me he had things to do so he was giving me a week to my self. I decided to go and visit my mother. I grabbed a boat and set sail to my home, but as I was sailing a storm started to from so I asked/prayed to Poseidon to let me have good wind and nice seas to get home fast. To my surprise the storm stopped and I felt a presence giving me a thumbs up and a head nod (kind of like Poseidon was saying you got it man) and then I got home very fast. Once I got home I embraced my mother in a giant hug. I then went on to tell her everything I had learned and been through and to my surprise I figured out she knew what I was talking about. She then told me she was Aphrodite and I was in complete shock. Then she said she no longer had interested in me and was bored. After that she was trying to leave when I insisted on asking her questions. She humored me and answered some of my questions and told me somethings then left. I then felt very depressed and decided to call Hercules to take me to Sparta with him so I could see if I could talk to Ares and Hephaestus. But not before cleaning up my home so that way i would have a place to come back to.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Set the Campaign’s game system

Let people know what game system your campaign is using, and give your players access to any system-appropriate character sheet templates that have been made. You can use them for NPCs too!

4. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

5. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

6. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to you and your players.
