Frequently Asked Questions
Where do scenes take place? Over the journals. Post in the community any scenes you may start. Additionally, we want this game to be set up like a story so we ask a minimum of 3 paragraphs to be written per post
Do I have to have read the Percy Jackson books to apply?: No, this is why we don't have the main characters around. We liked the premise so much, we wanted to be able to appeal it to many people who haven't heard of the books. Beware of spoilers though if you do apply and get in.
Will you ever need someone to play Percy, Annabeth, Nico, etc? Maybe. Just not now.
Can I play a God? Yes, you can but we only ask that you first take on a demi-god, satyr, or nymph and prove through them that you can take on the part responsibly.
Do characters actually go on quests? Yes, they do! We mods have quests planned. However, consider that usually it is the Gods and/or Chiron who chooses who goes on the quests and they are going to choose people who work hard and put a lot of devotion into their work. Hence, we want to see you roleplay your character being devoted to training and have it make sense for your character to do so. But also, don't lose heart! People chosen for quests are usually required to take a few people along too.
Can I play the child of a deity from a different pantheon? No.
Can I play one of Artemis's Hunters? Yes, you can. In fact, in the game, the Hunters are currently at Camp Halfblood waiting for further instructions.
How are journals dealt with in the game? Everyone is connected to Olympus Net, a joint venture by Hephaestus and Hermes. It is a way to keep connected to family and to spy, er, keep up with everyone. Every cabin has one computer that is connected to Olympus Net. Hopefully, everyone knows how to share. Journals aren't a requirement, but they're good ways to develop characters and just plain fun.
Where do the children of minor gods stay? They do not say in the books, so they stay in Hermes' cabin.
Can I be a child of Zeus, Poseidon, Hera, Artemis, or Hades? No.
How many characters can I have? As many as you can keep up with.
Is slash allowed? Yes, but keep within reason. Not everyone in the world is gay just like not everyone in the world is straight.
What is the rating? PG-13. Most characters are going to be under twenty. If you must do a sex scene, please do fade to black.
How does the power system work? Each deity has a portfolio of that that god or goddess stands for. Your character has abilities lying in all of it. Some may be minor, like if prophecy is covered, your character might only have slight intuition as opposed to outright visions. Your character can only choose two aspects of that deity that you can be very focused in. It takes the form of one ability that falls under one aspect of a deity's portfolio. If you choose, for an example, your character is a child of Athena. You can choose Athena's affinity with the crafts and your character can spin better than expert and really fast too.
