All out-of-character mumbo-jumbo can be found here including intros, outros, general chat, forum games, and much more. This is the more laid-back area of the forum full of silliness and the like.

Sounded like a good idea...
The character application section. Post your applications in the appropriate forum. Pending is for 100% completed applications, do not post anything else in this forum or you will be dealt a penalty. Incomplete is for those who want to take time creating their application. Once an application is complete, inform a mod to have it moved to pending. Tartarus is for dead applications.

The approved applications. Come here to spy on various characters, or just get an idea of how their roleplayer will be playing their character. If you, as a player, decide to read any of the applications, remember to keep all information separate from your character's knowledge if they do not already know the information given in the application. This is a violation and will result in a penalty.

It is made of white marble, and has a row of twelve columns, upon which are topped statues of the Twelve Olympians.

After traversing the surrounding wilderness and ascending the sheer cliffs of Mount Othrys, one would eventually find themselves facing an imposing sight. The Palisade is a massive wall of stone that encircles the realm of the Titans. Created from the earth to protect the Titans from the wrath of a vengeful Uranus, these battlements have never been breached. The large gateway leading into the Titans' realm is no less impressive, or impermeable.

Past the Palisade is the cramped but sprawling Acropolis, a multi-tiered city of palaces that grow more impressive as one nears the peak. From the center of this city rises a large, fortified tower. This stronghold was once the home of the first generation of Titans, now it serves as the seat of power for the rebellious immortals.

Throne Room

At the top of the tower sits a great hall with high vaulted ceilings supported by magnificent pillars. This was the throne room of Cronus; the king of the Titans. Now it has been adapted by the immortals as a council chamber for their brewing war. Though the massive seat of Cronus remains empty this room still serves as a place of power.

Beneath the Acropolis lies a twisting labyrinth of tight passages and earthen rooms descending deep into the heart of Mount Othrys. Here you will find the amories, dungeons, and cellars for those who dwell above. This maze offers both protection and a means of escape from, as well as entrance to, the Acropolis to those who know them. The Olympians were guided through these tunnels during the Titanomachy, however the passage they took has long since been sealed.

Beaches and Harbors

Here is all the beaches and harbors in the Realm of Men. It is Poseidon's domain here, and all who wish to have safe passage upon the seas, must pay homage to the Lord of the Seas. But the seas can also be very dangerous, containing such beasts as the six-headed monster Scylla and the whirlpool Charybdis. Tread carefully when in Poseidon's domain.

Poseidon's Underwater Palace

This is the underwater Palace of the Lord of the Sea, Poseidon. It is a marvel to behold, and only a select few ever get to behold it. It is where Poseidon spends his time when not on Mount Olympus, or venturing in the Realm of Men.

Rivers of the Underworld

A very complex series of rives flow from the mortal world to the Underworld. To pass into the Underworld, one must travel amongst one of these rivers. The rivers are The Acheron (river of woe), The Cocytus (river of lamentation), The Phlegethon (river of fire), The Styx (river of unbreakable oath by which the gods swear), and The Lethe (river of forgetfulness). Once across the rivers, you are met by a looming adamantine gate guarded by Cerberus. Peering through the gates, you see nothing but a grove of elm trees, with the very tops of a black palace int he distance. You have no choice: you must venture through the Grove of Persephone, or turn back.

Hades' Realm

Here, you can see and make your way to all the strange places within the Underworld that Hades rules with an iron fist and steely gaze. In the distance, you can see Hades' palace, but before that, are large areas of waste, dead and dying plants, macabre creatures, and depressing souls.

Palace of Hades

The Palace of Hades, is the home of the God of the Underworld, Hades, as well as the Queen of the Underworld, Persephone. It is a massive palace made entirely of black stone, while the inside is home to numerous suites and furniture, with everything draped in a blood red velvet. It is here where Hades resides when not on Olympus, however, the Palace of Hades lies empty since the kidnapping of the Lord of the Underworld by the Goddess Hestia.

Tartarus is an abyss used as a dungeon of torment and suffering that resides beneath the underworld. As a place so far from the sun and so deep in the earth, Tartarus is hemmed in by three layers of night. It is a dank and wretched pit engulfed in murky gloom. The Titans were released from Tartarus following the kidnapping of Hades, and were allowed freedom. Tartarus is now home to those people deemed unfit to help the Minor Gods in their war against the Olympians.
