The room is dark, but there's a shadowy figure moving around. Then, from the shadow, a ring pierces the darkness. "Hello." The voice answering is male. "Uh huh-... Greece. When?.... Okay. That should be perfect." A tone indicates the conversation is over- "Boy, are they in for a treat..." The voice in the room goes for a lamp, and then flicks on the light."
Okay y'all, I'm running a game. We'll start a months before your guy's trip to Greece. In game, it will give you time to get the time off, or whatever else needs to be done.
Characters can be as varied group as possible, but must be able to work together. They must have been living in Fort Nowhere, Anywhere for at least two years. Age can be anything older than 17- though, you've only recently met your divine parent.
Fort Nowhere, Anywhere is a large collection of buildings, empty lots, and streets. The buildings don't matter unless stated otherwise. The streets are all vague and extremely similar, again, unless stated otherwise. Yet there are several key points that seem to stick out. It is said that the Gods cursed the city to be forever boring. Whether that's true or not is yet to be determined. But something is fishy...
Everyone must somehow know Dex Wild- Scion of Loki. He is a very awesome guy who treats his friends well, and happens to be a world class photographer. He takes pictures of animals and ziggurats, and everything in between. Modeling shots are his favorite, yet he does them the least. It's cause he wants to seem exclusive. So two or three shoots a year, max.
Dex has known of his divine heritage for about a year- a bit longer than any of you. And he has helped each of you with your first quest, whatever it might have been. Maybe he helped reclaim your birthrites, which were stolen by a nasty ogre before your divine parent could give them to you. Or maybe he helped save you from a rampaging Horseman, who sought to destroy you mere minutes before your divine parent showed up for your visitation. Whatever it was, it is important for it to happen right before or shortly after your visitation.
