Oh no! What will happen next!? Find out on Wednesday πŸ˜‰

ALSO: I never thought I would ever be saying this, but I think Zeus is becoming one of my favourite characters. He’s just so dramatic and over-the-top.

BTW: In the first picture the person directly behind Zeus is Dionysos. I wanted to sneak him into the story. πŸ˜›

  1. Briareus is kind of disturbing, which just goes to show I should probably NOT come up with character designs late at night.
  2. Thetis is much sassier than I had originally thought she would be, which pleases me greatly.
  3. Achilles didn’t necessarily blackmail his mother, but I wouldn’t put it past him, especially with Thetis’ sketchy relationship with Peleus (there will be more details about this in the future).
  4. I only now realized that half the time I use Latin spellings and half the time use Greek spellings for the names of people and places… which is inconsistent of me and I apologize. If I ever put this together as a book I’ll have to go through and fix that. Ah well. When you do research you’ll see it’s pretty inconsistent out in the world too.

Next time we will learn what is going on with Odysseus…

No one ever listens to the smart people in epics. NO ONE. (It’s just as bad in Song of Roland, if memory serves correctly.)

Also, poor Phoenix is having an identity crisis.

NOTE: You probably are wondering who the Myrmidons are. Or. Maybe you aren’t. BUT IF YOU ARE: The Myrmidons were a group of warriors from Thessaly, in Greece. According to legend Zeus took a colony of ants and zapped them into a group of warrior-men (myrmexΒ is the Greek word for ant). I’m not really sure why Zeus did this, but I’m sure it amused him.
