This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

OOC: I made a naming mistake. The guy with Eric is Scamander. I will get a full reply in later today but have to run to work now.

Scamander is a god of the river that flows through the valley and past the walls of Troy. It is likely that Eric is standing near the source of the river now. In the traditional tales he was an ally of Troy and fought Achilles. But how could these tales have been composed thousands of yearsa gao but also be appearing before Eric's eyes now?

Eric laughs. "Let me guess. That walled city there...Troy?"

Quote from: edster;1023002
The two soldiers fall, the knight dents his tin armoured rear end, the Spartan loses his foam helmet to a sudden breeze.

"This is the thanks we get just for trying to help out," the knight says trying to repair his armour and dignity.

"They can't say we didn't try," the Spartan said.

"We go to all this trouble and look where it gets us," the knight says giving up on bending the metals but now walking with a limp due to the misshapen metal.

"WHat's he want with that plain old road anyway? He got a date or something?"

"Don't ask me to try an explain freshmen; I'm just a knight, not one of them philosopher-kings."

"And I'm just a simple soldier, not King Menelaus."

"You got that right."

"And I'm freezing in this toga. What kind of place is this?"

"Dunno, I just work here."

The glowing road unfolds below Eric's stumbling feet. As he walks on the surroundings change from the quiet New Jersy town to fields and farms asleep under the moonlight. The glowing road loses it's modern paved appearance and becomes a path of cobblestones with wagon wheel ruts to either side. The world is silent except for an occasional caw from a crow or barking from coyotes. Eric feels tiredness in his legs and for some reason the effects of the alcohol do not diminish. The road makes a long gentle bend to the right and passes next to a small cottage with a lit lamp placed on the windowsil. The front door is open a crack and shafft of warm light crosses the path.

"Eric Olsen, you have walked for enough this night, don't you think? Come in and rest," a woman's voice calls from the house.

Thank you for all this[/COLOR]
