Trials by Fire part 1

[The sound of soldiers marching awakens residents on the outskirts of the capital city of Rome] "Thump! Thump! Thump!" [One boy looks through the window to see what is occurring]   "Forward!" The soldiers are returning as quickly as possible to Rome as the General received a message via an eagle stating that Rome was besieged. They hasten forth. When they arrive they find that the enemy has been repelled and have been chased back to Carthage. The City of Carthage has been a long time rival of Rome and this presented an opportunity for the Romans to wipe their rivals out completely. So they sent the army that just arrived to Annapolis so they could accompany the navy across the Mediterranean.  The Carthaginians were not at war with Rome at the time, however they were providing safe haven for Rome's enemies. What's more s that the City of Carthage was near to the mountain that Achilles was left to be tormented on.      The roman army arrived in Africa one month later after fighting countless naval battles with both pirates and the Carthaginian fleet. By the time they  arrived, Carthage was well prepared for a siege. However Rome had no intentions of waiting t out, so they called upon their ally, the Atlas Empire, to assist them n battle. The Emperor responded by sending an army under the command of Apollo to crush the Carthaginians.   Together, Rome and Atlas crushed Carthage once and for all and ended the Black Wars. During the battle, one of the soldiers heard a cry from a nearby hill and rushed to investigate. He found Achilles chained to a rock and slayed the eagle before setting Achilles free. Achilles thanked the man and sped off to find Athena, who was the only one who would truly help him.   Meanwhile the Romans together with their ally achieved a decisive victory over the Enemy.   Since Carthage was in Africa, the Romans gave it to the Emperor as a sign of good will. The Emperor made Apollo ruler over Carthage and a subject to his Empire.    Apollo spent the rest of that century away from Atlas, but always in its people's hearts.       But this was only just the Beginning.   A Easter egg for future parts.

Queen Shannakay and Prince Charles

The long awaited news has finally arrived. Queen Shannakay and Prince Charles have gotten married. Much of the speculation leading up to this moment was whether or not the Queen would have married King Papi, a strong ally and trade partner of Pegasus however with the public announcement made this morning, and the photos and highlights being released to the public, such speculation has been eliminated.    Accompanying the Queen were her two sisters, Arryha and Sky along with her uncle, the former King-regent. From left to right in this picture are; the Queen's uncle, Prince Charles, Princess Arryha, the Queen, and Princess Sky. The Imperial Guard was also present, wearing their respective ceremonial outfits.[Note the sword being held upright] Prior to the wedding, the Queen had to be relocated to ensure maximal security as the nation was at war. However with all the fighting finished, Her Majesty returned to the Imperial Palace and was married less than three days later.

Pegasus News WARRRR

Citizens of Pegasus, this is not a drill.  I repeat this is not a drill. We are being attacked. Proceed to the nearest shelter immediately. The Imperial Palace has issued a full-scale red alert and the Royal Family have been relocated to a secure location. I repeat this is not a drill. We are at war with some of the NSR players. They have launched a surprise attack on us and are gaining immense ground. All military capable personnel are requested to report immediately to any army base.    Pegassian troops have began mobilizing all over the country.  The Erusean military has also been mobilized as it is a client state of Pegasus.  Reserves have been called up for both countries and the DOAB missile system has been activated as the nation enters a new phase of war.          As of right now, any personnel of the NSR and Arrgh are to be exterminated with extreme prejudice.  The Pegasus Empire formally recognizes these alliances as aggressors and will declare war in an effort to defend itself.

The War Ends

@18:00 hours Yesterday, Pegasus Forces broke through the last defensive line of Emperor Ukunada's Forces. As the troops stormed the capital there was unfortunately much loss of life as the civilians were mostly hostile towards the invaders and were thus shot on sight. The city was left in ruins as Erusean planes carried out multiple air strikes alongside the Pegasus Air Force.  As the army made their way through the rubble they were greeted by a detachment that was sent a head to secure Princess Arryha.  The princess had evidently been released by a local who wanted the war to stop and was making her way through the forest when the militants found out she was missing and began pursuing her. Pegasus Special Forces found her after she made an emergency phone call to "Command". They found her, eliminated all hostiles and transported her back safely.  With the Royal safe back home, the soldiers were ordered to rap up and return home. After a few more bombings, military control was returned to the Emperor's forces as the Pegasiian Military withdrew. 
The navy also withdrew and cargo ships which had been stopped by the blockading navy were finally allowed entry into the nation's ports.  A peace treaty was signed between Emperor Ukunaka and Queen Shannakay. This is the second peace agreement and the second war between the two countries however this is the first war which did not end in a truce.

The War is Almost Over

As Pegasus Forces push forward looking for a decisive victory, efforts to locate the princess have been maximized to the highest possibility.  Pegasus's ally, Erusea e have sent troops to assist in the rescue missions and it is estimated that she will be found within the next 12 hours. If this is the case, the war can be expected to be over within 24 hours tops as the invasion was only done to locate the princess.  A detachment from the Imperial Guard is being sent off to join the search. Reports suggest that they have a lead on the location of the princess and will be heading off at an unknown time.

A Sad Story [FTE part 4]

As the battle continued, Pyrrha and those behind her managed to break through the right flank of the enemy at last. They began driving back the monsters and claiming ground with lightening speed. Meanwhile, Arryha as well began gaining ground but was slowed down by the heavy bombardment from archers mounted on a nearby hill.    Female warrior accompanying Arryha In the plains, things were much different, the enemy had driven dobby and the army back. It became clear that unless the battle on the flanks were won and those detachments joined in the centre, all would be lost. The archers in Pyrrha's guard began accelerating their rate of fire as they fired with precision and accuracy into the eyes and hearts of the creatures they were fighting. They had received a morale boost after managing to successfully break the enemy and were now simply cleaning up the left overs. At the same time, Pyrrha took her infantry and charged into the bulk of the enemy's main force from the right flank. This sudden attack managed to crush a large amount of elite units which had been focusing on the battle ahead. They were given little time to realize their mistake and were hence punished for it dearly. Arryha's detachment had also  been successful on that flank and crushed the remaining archers that had taken refuge in a cave. She then turned her attention to the enemy in the fields and also dealt a crushing blow to their army. The Queen of the darkness was not to be defeated this easily however and she made one final charge before attempting to retreat. She charged the one who had dealt a massive blow to her plans, Pyrrha. Pyrrha did not see her coming as she had her back turned towards her allies so she considered herself to be safe. Dobby on the other hand saw her charging and realized whom she was aiming for. Having made a promise to Epi to protect his daughter, Dobby intercepted the Death Queen's blow with his own body. Her weapon went clear through his chest and stopped only inches away from Pyrrha who turned around and drove her sword into the heart of the Queen thus ending her, once and for all.  However the damage had been done. As the enemy retreated, Pyrrha fell beside dobby and took his hand in hers. Dobby, with his last breath created for her, a necklace signifying her ascendancy to take over his role as Titan and told her to let him rest in peace. She closed his eyes after the last breath of air left his body and rose with the necklace still in her hand. She had changed back into her normal self and was doing her best to appear strong.  But truth be told, sh was torn apart inside. They had one victory, however though decisive it may be in truth, the losses Atlas suffered were never to be forgotten or forgiven.  The Romans arrived to a scene of utter destruction. There were dead bodies, blood, crows, flies and other remnants from the war scattered as far as the eye could see. There were only a few spots for one to walk without stepping on the dead or wounded. A scout from Pyrrha's Guard watches from above as the enemy retreats. The survivors of the battle for the victors could be seen resting after 18 hours worth of constant clashing with the enemy. One such survivor was a member of Pyrrha's guard who greeted the newcomers. She was seated in front of a pile of weapons which her comrades had gathered up from nearby bodies. All over the battlefield, different persons could be seen taking up weapons.  The battle had been won but a a terrible cost. There were many sacrifices but in the end Evil lost.

Pyrrha and Dobby [FTE part 3]

6,24,48 A number that up to this date still pains the empire to its very core.  Though it marked the turning point in the war, it also was scarred with an unimaginable loss.  The battle began as both the 1st Army and the invading force charged forward. As both sides crashed into the other, crows began circling the battlefield knowing that they would soon be filled. As the fighting continued, Dobby could be seen rallying the men and leading the offense against the enemies skirmishers which were currently dealing plenty of damage to their opponents.  There were over 255,000 men of war on the field with 150000 of them coming from the darkness that seeked to devour all. The roman army was to reinforce the 1st Army before the battle however due to the ambush, they were held back and would not be able to join the battle.   Pyrrha's ability to change how she looked kept the enemy very busy as they could never truly tell whom they were fighting. Four representations of her would surround them and each looked more convincing than the rest. She attracted much of their attention and drew off the bulk of the massive army towards nearby ruins where she dominated them in battle.  The fighting became more and more intense as monsters both unseen and unheard of for thousands of years were released on the battlefield to lay waste to Atlas's army. Many men died attempting to fight or flew the creatures whilst the wizards and witches fought hard to drive them back. Further reinforcements were transported by the By-soft directly into the midst of the battle. Arryha was one who came with the detachment as she wanted to ensure her sister remained alive knowing how reckless she could be. However as soon as she arrived she was faced off with an old enemy as Morgana sent three spirit bombs at her.  The battle had now been separated into different parts with Morgana and her minions clashing against Arryha and the reinforcements on the left flank. Titan Dobby and The main bulk of the 1st Army against Cerberus and the entirety of the enemy in the middle. On the right flank was Pyrrha and her guards and the witches and wizards against all the monsters the enemy had to offer. On both flanks were ruins which made the battles there more of a tactical approach than just a simple head on, fight to the death collision. In the midst however was a large open plain and this was where the battle really took place.  The battle rages on with no end in sight.

More News.

As the war rages on new weapons are being tested and one such weapon being prepped for combat is the MOAB launcher. Having being created last year, it still remains untested and has been loaded in case it will come in handy in the current war.   Also, the first trip to space has been concluded with the safe arrival of the space shuttle which landed in the ocean, less than 500 meters away from the battle-group sent to secure its occupants.  The men and women were overjoyed to return to their planet which looked far off when the had touched down on the moon earlier last month. They had spent a few days searching the planet before heading to the space station build site to begin creating the first ever off planet F.O.B.

War Breaks Out Again.

It would be correct to assume by now that the nation of Pegasus seems to be engulfed in battle almost as often as Israel. However most times it is on a seemingly defensive term. This such case is not much different as it has been reported that Her Royal Highness, Princess Arryha has been ambushed by locals whilst on a diplomatic visit in The Ugaya Aniyvnwiya. Emperor Ukunaka has already made an appeal to the Imperial Palace requesting that his forces be given time to locate and secure the royal for transfer back to safety, however after weeks without any success, Queen has no other choice but to declare war in the hopes of finding her sister and the guards which were accompanying her at the time of the attack.  The Pegasus Army began its assault at 05:02 AM on October 30, 2027. The war began as Pegasan battleships approached the nation's main port. The ships were however ambushed and the enemy won a decisive victory over their opponents thought heavily outnumbered. This turned the battle landwards as the Pegasus Navy fell back to regroup. Emperor Ukunaka sent a peace offering to Queen Shannakay after that massive victory however as her sister was still being held in captivity she decided against it and began organizing a massive land invasion. Meanwhile the fleet was called back to the naval base to begin repairs as the navy would need to be at full strength  to be able to defend against a blockade.    As the war raged on, small battles occurred along the border between soldiers of both sides. The death toll was marked at 356 for Pegasus after naval battle in which 18 ships were sunk including one HMS class battleship.

For the Emperor! [part 2]

As the army marches westward towards Egypt, there is a sense of uneasiness in the camp. None of my fellow comrades knew what we were about to go through. None, save the guard who came back to warn us. Life can be full of mysteries and this was just another one. This was what we were told. That the enemy was a bunch of savages that could and should be put easily back into their rightful place. It seems, the Romans, with whom I was traveling had heard something similar, for their was a calm among the legions until we arrived at the edge of the marshes.  The scouting party had returned and reported sights of enemy scouts. They had been heavily countered and managed only to escape with their lives because of the ever shifting fog looming within the marsh. The general in  command ordered that we prepare for an attack and the officers began ordering the troops into position. Moments later, everything was quiet as we waited.  And waited.  And waited. Suddenly, the marsh ahead of us gave way to a massive, army. Alas, no, it was more of a horde. Before we knew it, they had already began banging against our shields, eager to hammer apart or flesh and bones. The fighting that followed was one of massive blood and gore. At one point in time, i could not tell friend from foe. I simply pushed forward.  The enemy even had cannibalistic dogs that would aim straight for our throats. If not for our superior weaponry and our general's rallying capabilities and strategic mindset, we would have been totally overwhelmed by both numbers and morale.   We won a decisive victory that day. However we did not win the war and that is probably the biggest mistake we ever made. To assume, we had already won.

For the Emperor! [part 1]

Previously in L.O.A. [Legends of Atlas].   [Arryha and Pyrrha were walking in the woods together after just meeting each other. They were using the few hours they had to do all the catching up they needed to do when a howl from a lone wolf in the distance halted them in their tracks. Pyrrha drew her bow and arrow and knelt down. Arryha turned her back to her sister and looked the other way.  Another howl could be heard much closer, accompanied with more howls. The two sister moved slowly backward until they were back to back. They were both prepared to fight. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Although he was seen as the champion of the weak and a great protector, Hercules' personal problems started literally at birth. Elaine sent two witches to prevent the birth, but they were tricked by one of Alcmena's servants and sent to another room. Elaine then sent serpents to kill him in his cradle, but Hercules strangled them both. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aphrodite never liked the concept of covering up one's body right from the start and would only clothe herself if she was to be receiving a visitor. She rather preferred to be half naked or fully so, especially around her husband.  She had guardians appointed to her called 'Cupids' but they rarely needed to guard her against much danger as no man was cruel enough to seek out to hurt such a beautiful being. As such her true guards were the soldiers posted outside her  rooms door which were spelled by her niece Athena so they wouldn't fall in love with her.  --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Perseus was already rounding everyone up with a makeshift army from across the sea when Dionysus asked a destined question “Is there anywhere I can hide?” the rather naughty priestess accompanying him in purple toga whispered of a ship whom they wouldn’t dare hinder. It was there he slept, the priestess a few party goers and his cupbearer [The ex-messenger] keeping him company. Thus Dionysus went on a wine encouraged voyage and to his brother’s dismay he’d participate in a war. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Atlas, a city of wonders, pleasures, riches and might. A city with impregnable walls, gates and civil rights. It is home to every living being that acknowledges the rule of the Titans. Titans they said once upon a time. Now, who are Titans? What are Titans? Where are the Titans if ever they existed? Well, the answer is simple. Look in the palace, in the centre of the world's most thriving region and you will find them. For they really do rule the world!   For the Emperor! June 944 BT [same as B.C.] The city is silent. Though the city stretches from the steps of present day China to the shores of the Mediterranean, all is quiet with the only sounds coming from the rushing of feet. The sounds of war. Just thinking about that day makes my blood run cold. It is the day that the creatures of the underworld attacked.  It all started as a normal week. At least, that's how it is remembered. The night's watch had just finished their shifts when a horn was heard. I was at the West Gate that day, the one facing Egypt and Rome. We had known that the people in these regions were overthrown by some foreign force but as we were further east we never had any reason to get involved.  Or so we thought. A guardsman from our border with Egypt came as if with the wind. He had the look of one who had stared death in its face and lived to tell the tale. The gates opened to let him in and slammed shut as soon as he was within the city. He only gave us a brief explanation before speeding off on his horse towards the palace. The little he provided us with however was more than enough. The city guards immediately began blowing the war horns. All over the city, war beacons lit up to alert the entire region that war was coming.  As the reality of the situation struck the humans, they began to panic. The nights guard had to be recalled into active duty to begin patrolling the city and ensuring everyone stayed in doors. The First Army [1st] marched through the west gate as the day came to an end with Pyrrha and Dobby at its head. Pyrrha's Elite Guard could also be seen marching with the group. With one Titan gone, the rest were left with ensuring the continuation of Atlas.  Our allies, the roman saw the lit beacons and sent a legion to aid us even though they were fighting a war themselves. The legion spent a night at the West Gate before marching off to meet up with the First Army. I was sent with them.

P4 Summit

The Government structure has been released to the public today. This comes just moments before the annual P4 Summit during which Pegasus's Allies and the Queen along with her chief officials will meet to discuss matters concerning the different states. It is believed that during this year's summit, the issue of refugees will be addressed. It is well known that previously, the other heads of States had demanded that Pegasus accept refugees from other nations other than Erusea however this command/request was never carried out. In fact, the Queen ordered that the army mobilize and maximize border patrols. That year saw the number of immigrants to Pegasus fall by 97% and it continued declining until another summit was held to determine what must be done.  The capital city will host the P4 Summit this year and as such, security around the centre of the city should be expected to be very secure. Traffic will also be terrible if you are heading towards the centre of the city. It is therefore advised that on that day/for that week, if any individual wishes to reach the centre of the city, the quickest way would be to walk as traffic is expected to reach extremes.

Final draft of the new government system is to be completed today.

Today the people of Pegasus, more specifically, their respective representatives voted on a new system of government at the Citadel earlier this morning. The new system will give citizens a complete outline of the government however will not actually change the roles of the persons currently in power. This change does not however affect the Queen nor the Imperial Staff. A full outline will soon be made public as to the changes made.

The First Mission to Space

04/03/2018   Today marks the first manned mission to space ever to be done by the Kingdom of Pegasus.    In a remarkable turn of events, the first space shuttle piloted by humans within the shuttle itself, lifted off from the Markham Space Complex. At 8:00 a.m. this morning, it was officially announced that this historical feat was finally passed by her majesty and that the mission would be under-way by evening. There were fifteen engineers on board plus the four pilots.  They will begin the creation of the Pegasus Space Station which will orbit Earth.     There was much celebration as the astronauts were escorted by the police down the streets of Markham for their final appearance before heading off on the short twelve hour trip to space.

Episode 1

The front entrance to the Imperial Palace in Pegasus. The Kingdom of Pegasus Never Forget! Never Surrender! Never Forgive!   Pegasus News Agency | Documentary | September 20, 2026     Modern day Pegasus was first known as the Kingdom of Tver located near Muscovy in the year 1444. Dmitry was the monarch of the small nation. Dmitry, even though he had a small army at the time, always looked at his neighbors around him to see which one would be an easy and profitable conquest for he wanted to reach the sea as quickly as possible so he could form a navy. The first opportunity came when the Muscovites sent a warning to Tver stating that should Tver declare war on any other nation, Muscovy would declare war on Tver. King Dmitry took this as an offense and so did his people. Even though Muscovy was much bigger than Tver, there was a public outcry for war and by September 1445, Tver declared war on Muscovy. Through the use of great strategy and the hiring of mercenaries, Tver defeated Muscovy and released their vassals. Tver also gained the region of Rzhev. Less than a month later, Tverian troops invaded Muscovy’s previous vassal, Yaroslavl, and made it a vassal of their own. This was to prove a vital move for future battles as this vassal became a major ally to their overlord and would, in the future, be the ones who break the siege on Tver’s capital city. Now that he had secured more land, Dmitry began expanding his trade with the Lithuanians. They were at first hesitant as Tver did not share a border with them but after the Tver – Muscovy war, the capture and annexation of Rzhev had put the two in direct contact with each other. With the truce with Muscovy still active, Dmitry turned his attention towards reaching the sea. One of his advisors showed him that there was a very small country to the north of Lithuania that would grant him access to the sea. However another advisor pointed out that there was no way to reach it without having to pass through foreign lands. The shortest diplomatic route would be through Lithuania but they would never allow Tverian troops to march past there capital at such a close range. In fact, the shortest route would have taken Dmitry’s army right to the outskirts of Vilna. To ensure that the Lithuanians would not feel threatened, Dmitry arranged a marriage between the princess of Lithuania and his grandson. As they were each just 16yrs old, it meant that such a marriage would provide a long lasting bond between the two nations. The Lithuanians accepted the offer as it ensured them safety from invasion and the 1st Tverian army began marching towards Riga. In the early months of 1447, Tver finished fabricating a claim on Riga and declared war. By March, the same year, over 30,000 troops besieged Riga making it the largest operation carried out by Tver up to that date. The government of Riga surrendered a month later and Riga was annexed by Tver. At the same time, the Tverian government officially gave Rzhev and its citizen’s full citizenship and recognized it as a core province. This increased regional stability for a time. Peace followed and for the next few years, Dmitry focused on rebuilding his nation, technological advancements and the upgrading of his military. However, by the mid 1450’s Dmitry had once again turned his attention to reaching the sea. Even though Riga was located at the Baltic Sea, the distance between it and the actual Tverian border prevented it from becoming a Core state which was vital to begin being able to build a navy. Thus the Tver – Novgorod wars began. The first war saw victory for Dmitry as he gained Kholm however the real victory over Novgorod did not come until the second Tver – Novgorod war. Unfortunately, Dmitry did not live to see this victory and it was his son, Dmitry II who oversaw the war. By 1476, Tver controlled all of Novgorod’s provinces with the exception of their capital. Tver also annexed all of Finland, most of the Livonian Order and had even, by using the royal marriage between Tver and Lithuania, claimed the Lithuanian throne, invaded Lithuania and capture the capital thus making Lithuania a vassal of Tver. This made the amount of land directly owned or belonging to a vassal, by Tver expand massively.

Dionysus and Perseus (Part One)

Since the beginning of his life, Dionysus was different from his kin. Unlike his father whose eyes saw cities and walls rising as he walked and talked, his actions dictating the structure of civilization. There difference was not noticeable to the outsider however and there lay the fault, whispering to him of grand plans and immense prestige he would drink his wine and listen. Not a word reaching his heart, not a thought clouding his mind.   His father argued with him day in and day out, telling him what he could accomplish if only he set his mind to the task. But he would not, for a thousand days he grew older and none wiser. The only skills he collected those of simplification, of delaying and persisting in his arrogance and drunkenness. He would amount to nothing, yet still he would be tasked with accompanying his cousin, perhaps a change of scenery would spark his mind. Thus, the venture to the Eastern city was born, a fledgling settling but one surrounded by fertile lands and valleys of gold. Perseus met his brother at noon on the third morning since the trip was decided, sword sheathed at his side. Grey Armor tight across his chest, his horse was thin but strong and Dionysus upon one of war felt strange rising to meet him, drunk as he was and swaying like the water skin at his side. “Hello dear brother, a little late, are we?” Asked Perseus jovially. Taking it for sarcasm Dionysus drank once more and set out down the dirt road soon ending and leaving them traversing wide fields of grain. Villagers gazing up at the immortals on rare horses, feet covered in dirt and clothes stitched at home comparing to their golden silk and iron plates. As solemn as Dionysus was wine loosened his tongue and the two cousins were as brothers once more, travelling to an interesting and mysterious land promising unheard stories and words. The first obstacle in their path appeared on the third day, when the fields and rolling hills turned into hard stone and sharp valleys, jagged pillars cutting open the sky and letting rain burden their passing. When traversing one of the first paths they were forced to turn back after an avalanche blocked them, the second path they trod evaded them as it split off into many tunnels and valleys to easy to get lost in. The third path was easy if not a little risky as their horses without saddle marched down a thin cliff with fast streams running beneath them and the mountain out into the rocky plateau. They made it through this landscape and many more, of stone and ice as well as of sea and storm. They found that unlike the mighty capital of their land the land in the east was perpetually split, a city on two sides of a great lake traversed each day by hundreds of small boats. This was a nation forged in the fires of struggle and determination. Neither of the brothers were very fond upon arrival. Greeting them at the gates a man draped in rough cloth asked them their business. After hearing their stories of a city in the west he laughed and let them in peacefully though it didn’t seem like he believed their story. Oddities such as this continued and tormented Perseus, it was like no one in this city truly cared about outsiders at all, fact and fiction made no difference to them. They just tolerated the perception of others...that was unfamiliar especially when coming from a kingdom of living creators. The real questions did not arise until they passed from the entrance to the trading districts “Perseus, I always thought you were the more civil of our lot, but i guess i was wrong if you’ve taken us to a city where no one cares who we are or what our goals may be” snorting at the suggestion Perseus remained steadfast “Think what you will, but as the successor to all our institutions i’d have expected you to be revolted by this place, not eager...” he said with a knowing eye. Dionysus like his brother claimed was happy to be in this city, here he wouldn’t be bound my any godly responsibility nor expectation. Here he could shine in a way only he and another fifty percent of the population knew how. Three days after their arrival a messenger finally arrived for Dionysus, resting his head on stone slabs in a stout building, bottles of wine carpeting the floor. “The Noble Perseus, son of Forethought and diplomat of all Atlas has requested your presence beside him in the halls of our Chief Agamemnon. To be quick about it too” The young boy asked handing the note to the god once he was finished. Dionysus picked it up and turning it over saw the handwriting of his busy cousin, this meeting now seemed boring and for a moment there he thought he’d enjoy the company of mad men and interrogators. Not to say his cousin wasn’t either of those...as this meeting would be with one statesmen or another wherever he was.   “Chief’s a pretty ridiculous title. Are you sure he isn’t a king or lord of some type?” Dionysus asked the boy as they closed in on the square topped pyramid. “No he is a chief, for he rules our people on this side of the lake. The other chief rules on his side, our gods don’t select our rules we choose them and place them upon the pavilion before the gods.” “Hmm, i don’t like it” Dionysus said blatantly looking at the fancy colors and rich oranges “not at all...i prefer marble and well...real leaders” The boy was not impressed and refused to converse with him for the remainder of their walk. When they did arrive he silently disappeared and Dionysus got to enjoy waiting for his brother to finish his own talks with this “Chief” of theirs. A slightly plump man, with little clothing and a spear twice his height. Like everything else in this city Dionysus could only describe him as “Odd”. When all was said and done, Dionysus rejoined his cousin in a small temple when the moon was high in the sky and the stars were visible...albeit barely as fog cornered this whole region. “Accomplish anything?” he asked to which Perseus replied in excess “Well I spoke to their leader and convinced him of our plight, to add new allies to our kingdom and discover new lands. He believed us unlike the so called priests he has at his command. Tomorrow I’ll head out to the other side of the lake and visit this Great library they claim to possess. Your task will be to remain here, maybe help them grow a bit and become more civilized. No need to tell savages of our location” at that Perseus smiled a bit preying on the teachings of our many mentors ingrained through countless hours of repetition. “Yeah...I don’t care. Though, since we have some freedom i guess i could give it a shot” Perseus thinking his gambit had worked mentally stoked himself for the future. Meanwhile Dionysus enjoyed the prospect of no possible supervision for possibly weeks in a city full of miscreants and savages.   In a parade of his own making and atop a chariot of his design, Dionysus “Civilized” the nation. In his own manner of course. Coming to a stop near the entrance to the city he saw a single figure atop a horse, Grey metal defining broad shoulders. “Uh oh” Tigers turning and running the length of the city the parade began operating in reverse, confusing a great many people and spilling hundreds of wine casks. If he wasn’t so frightened he might have cried, ever desperate to escape he found himself at the end of the city only the port providing refuge. Perseus was already rounding everyone up with a makeshift army from across the sea when Dionysus asked a destined question “Is there anywhere I can hide?” the rather naughty priestess accompanying him in purple toga whispered of a ship whom they wouldn’t dare hinder. It was there he slept, the priestess a few party goers and his cupbearer [The ex-messenger] keeping him company. Thus Dionysus went on a wine encouraged voyage and to his brother’s dismay he’d participate in a war. Continued: Dionysus goes to Troy

An Update:

The Pegasus Army made a significant breakthrough today in the defensive war against the United Lost Cities.  @ 8:06 pm Orbis time, General Rhoden ordered Pegasus troops which had now besieged the capital city of the ULC to advance. Amozonia had been damaged before the advance due to air strikes done by the brave pilots of the Air Force. There was much rubble to climb through to advance and this meant that most of the time the soldiers would have to advance in the open. To make matters worst, air support was no longer possible as the entire air force was preoccupied in keeping hostile aircraft at bay. The only good thing about the entire ordeal was that the enemy could not support their ground forces from the air either.  10:00 pm  Pegasus troops had captured the city hall and centre. Although there was still small pockets of fighting left throughout the far outskirts of Amozonia, defeat was now imminent for the ULC. 11:00 pm  The ULC has been conquered. The ground forces of Pegasus secured there last air fields and army bases disabling both their army and their air force. The ULC government signed a peace agreement in which they paid Pegasus for the minor damages that had been done to Pegasus's capital city. The peace agreement also had the ULC withdraw their blockading fleet in exchange for the withdrawal of the Pegasus Army from within its borders.  This is a great victory for Pegasus as it not only ensures the safety of its citizens but it also proves to the world that Pegasus is more than capable.   *Declaration of Existence*

Aphrodite and the Titan of Forethought (PG 16+)

The content here may not be suitable to all viewers. As such, as a precaution, if you are younger than 16 years old skip over this entry. If you find the use of the word 'naked' and other depictions of nakedness (not visual but written) offensive, I also highly recommend that this entry be skipped. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. Signed by: In the beginning, after the creation of the heavens and the Earth, the Titans each created a wife. The women were to be the first goddesses and as such were the immortal partners of the Titans. The Titan of Afterthought, being the master in diplomacy would require a wife to suit the part. After much consideration and sculpting, the final form of his bride was complete. He gave the breathless body life and thus created Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty.   Aphrodite and The Titan of Forethought. Aphrodite never liked the concept of covering up one's body right from the start and would only clothe herself if she was to be receiving a visitor. She rather preferred to be half naked or fully so, especially around her husband.  She had guardians appointed to her called 'Cupids' but they rarely needed to guard her against much danger as no man was cruel enough to seek out to hurt such a beautiful being. As such her true guards were the soldiers posted outside her  rooms door which were spelled by her niece Athena so they wouldn't fall in love with Aphrodite.  The story of Aphrodite's love is one filled with drama, romance and an intense lust for men. She was particularly fond of romance stories and would form many of her own until her last one was found out by her husband. It was this same act of romance that placed one hero in such torment that it took another thousand years before Hercules found him and freed him.      ♥ Aphrodite and Achilles ♥   The love story of Aphrodite and Achilles started with an argument between her and her husband. So intense was it that it formed a massive lightning storm which lasted one whole week. Mortals called it the result of the devil and his wife fighting and would forever more label all thunderstorms as such.  "You are never home! Can't you spend this one night with me?" "Woman! Have you forgotten that i have more important things to attend to during the daytime?" "More important than your wife?" "I give you my nights, my holidays, my weekends and you still say i give nothing! What more do you want?" "For you to stay with me [sobs] I can't bare to see you go." (Lightning stops but rain starts to fall) The Titan walks over to her and hugs her tightly, kisses her on her forehead and tells her how much he loves her but the damage has already been done. As soon as he left, her cupids flew into the room. They dried her tears and told her about a mortal they had found that would ease her pain. His name was Achilles and he was a warrior. He was a demi-god, the result of the Titan of Innerthought affection with a mortal woman. She immediately changed her appearance to one that seemed more mortal and went after him. When Aphrodite, appeared in front of him, he was taken aback by her beauty. He had not known whom she was but he could tell from the aura radiating from her presence that she was at most, an immortal.   She sweet talked him into staying with her for the night in the nearby forest and had her cupids create a romantic scene for the two of them to lie in.  They fell in love and would visit each other day after day in the woods, keeping their affair secret from the rest of the world. Aphrodite would always hide her true form, lest her husband or other immortals recognize her and hold her accountable for her actions. They would meet up in the woods, talk, do great pleasures, eat fruits and talk some more. She always stayed awake while he slept, to watch him at peace and to protect him for though he was a great warrior, fighting in the Trojan war and the Greek civil war, he was also a mortal and this made it possible for him to be killed by snakes, arrows, etc.  One day however, whilst in the forest with Aphrodite, Achilles heard a massive explosion and the sound of battle. He thought it was an invading army coming in to take over Greece and ran off to fight. Aphrodite sped off after him and caught up with him right at the edge of the forest. From there they could see the battle occurring right in front of them. There were two noticeable persons in the midst of the fight and Aphrodite immediately recognized them. One was her first son, Apollo and the other her husband. She grabbed onto Achilles and begged him not to go to fight. The commotion they caused drew the attention of everyone fighting and they all stopped and looked. Both froze and the cupids arrived too late to hide them from view. As quick as a flash, Titan Dabs was at their side. He recognized his wife in her disguise and became furious as he caught her cheating. instead of punishing her he decided to kill the man however she pleaded with him not to. Apollo then suggested to his father, a more fitting punishment, turning him immortal but not a god or titan and nailing him to a post on the highest mountain. Then, set eagles to eat out his stomach. As he would be immortal, he would be revived 30 minutes after death and would go through the same agonizing pain of the eagles eating out his stomach again and again for the rest of time. This punishment suited Dabs and he agreed to his son's proposal. The suffering of Achilles was to also be a reminder to Aphrodite that she should not falter again. And she never forgot it.  Achilles and the eagle.
