Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
Remember to stay in character. IF you didn't receive a private message, that means that you are human.

Aboard the ship Argos, fifty heroes embark on a legendary quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece. Legends such as Jason and Hercules were among their number. However, this is the untold story of twelve of the Argonauts, members of a hunting party, who encountered an unspeakable horror. When the Argos reached land, twelve Argonauts, mj23, Tails, Tenser, DarknessMush0323, Metricus, Timber Wolf, drunkninja, Kong, sabby, Billy Hoyle, mignelli, and oasis were chosen to hunt for food and explore the land. However, three of them had a terrible secret.

I realize it's a bit short on story. It will get better. Please do not complain if this isn't an accurate portrayal of mythology, either. I will let you guys decide the personality of your character and its motivations.

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
okay. My character is absolutely jacked out of his EYES. Well actually ive done that for the last few games, so I wotn do it again. My character will be average build, not brilliant but lots of common sense, and lots of smart on field tactics.

{OOC: @Tails: I believe we're suppose to go by our forum nicks and we are non-famous Argonauts. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I shall be Tenser, the Canadian Argonaut who only speaks in French and has a secret grievance against Oasis for founding NAMBLA!}


Enfin nous avons atteint la terre! Je me suis développé fatigué d'écouter le vomi sabby au-dessus du bateau.

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
My character is the kind of guy who is always frowning and doesn't have a kind side, but he means well.

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
I am sabby the swordsman. My abilities with a sword and shield are second to none. Unfortunately, I find out that I have multiple Achilles heels at the most inopportune times.

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
Yes, you must use your forum nicknames. That's why I referred to you as such in the first post.

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
It's alright. We already have a French Canadian Argonaut(despite the fact that neither France nor Canada exists at the time). I'm not too interested in authenticity. I just want everyone to have a good time.

Wolves, I expect your vote in the next 24 hours.

mignelli 08-01-2008 08:25 PM

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)

Metricus 08-01-2008 10:52 PM

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
My character will be a muscular tough guy who has dreadlocks and solves everything with his fist. He also carries a big sword on his back and doesn't give a second thought to lobbing the head off anything that moves. Ok maybe thats a little extreme, but still.

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
You'd think, given that this is Greek mythology, that there would be a few Greeks out there. ::)

The Argonauts find themselves in a deep forest perpetuated with gloom. Some of them grow uneasy, but night has fallen. Timber Wolf looks around, and doesn't like what he sees.

"Are you sure we should be stopping here? I don't like the look of this place."

Sabby replies, "Would you rather keep marching, kid? I sure don't. My heel is killing me."

"You're afraid because of a little darkness?" drunkninja growls, "What kind of Argonaut are you?".

Timber Wolf throws his arms up in annoyance.

"Fine, have it your way. I don't want to argue with you."

DarknessMush0323 laid down next to a tree.
"Good, we can get some sleep."

At dawn, everybody woke up to start the day early. Something did not quite seem right. Kong took a mental roll call and realized that DarknessMush0323 was missing.

"Does anyone know where Mush is?"

Everybody looked at each other awkwardly. Nobody had seen him at all since they woke up. Billy Hoyle went to the pack mule to grab his sword and armor, but is shocked to see his arms, along with everyone else's, were gone.

"Our weapons are gone!" he yells, "This must have something to do with whatever happened to Mush. He's probably dead."

Tenser curses in French. While looking around the tree, Mignelli comes across a note.

"Ay, look at dis!"

Mj23 takes the note and reads it to the group.

"You may have noticed that there is a missing Argonaut. DarknessMush0323 now inhabits the underworld, and you will join him soon enough. We are among you. -The Sons of Lycaon"

Tails looks up into the tree and sees what's left of Mush. Vomiting, he manages to point it out to Metricus.

Metricus looks at it for a second, then climbs the tree. As he climbs, he remarks, "Why are you throwing up? It's just a corpse."

The corpse is buried quickly. As they finish, they notice an awesome presence among them.

Oasis recognizes it immediately.

"By the gods, it's Charon himself! But we're not dead yet. Why is he here?"

Charon, best known as the ferryman for the river Styx into the underworld, paused for a moment to regard each Argonaut.

"Great heroes like DarknessMush0323 don't die this easily. I was surprised to see him this early, so I thought it would be best to find out why. The sons of Lycaon are among your number. They may appear human, but underneath they are bloodthirsty monsters. They use the form of a wolf to make their kills. I am afraid that a terrible fate has befallen you. You must destroy the three of them if you wish to survive."

Charon pulls out a silver sword and tosses on the ground.

"This sword can destroy the wolves. Be sure to choose the right ones. I am sorry I cannot help you further. The gods will not interfere in this matter. You must do this yourselves. Good luck."

DarknessMush0323 has been eliminated. You have 2 days to vote on who you think is the wolf. The hunter has already made the prediction.

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
\ooc\ metricus-youre supposed to go (ooc) or \ooc\ when your talking Out Of Character

Timber Wolf 08-02-2008 01:00 PM

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
Timber Wolf said

A broadsword or a claymore? I prefer Claymore's myself, but that's because it's more or a blunt tool that's so heavy it cuts through you anyways.
OOC: that was directed at metricus, I fell behind in the posts and didn't see the 2nd page :-[
OOC: Since this is mythology, does anybody burst into flames magically just cause they pissed one of the gods off ;D

and to those who don't know what I'm talking about in the joke in my last post Tails and sabby should know what I'm talking about, i hope...

mignelli 08-02-2008 01:26 PM

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
OOC: guys what are you doing? If your talking out of character, make sure you put an OOC followed by a colon to signify your talking "out of character" If your talking in character, make sure the phrase is in the form of a quote.

Timber Wolf 08-02-2008 01:57 PM

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
OOC: sorry I keep making mistake's, I'm still new to this :-[, I'm not ruining it for anyone am I?

Metricus 08-02-2008 04:57 PM

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
Gah, I'll lob the head off the next person to say OOC.

OOC:Hows that for in character?

mj23 08-02-2008 05:48 PM

Re: Bane of the Gods (Wolf Game)
ooc: FAILED!
