So ~ First post ever on this forum. I had to sign up.

I love this demo. I always loved greek gods and I think it’s a good devlopment here.

Actually about the differents characters, I’m really interested in Aeson. He is the other face of the same coin. And when you talk to him he is so cunning. I wonder if we can be more like him or theoritically not his opposite but different in the end.

And I have a question and another : when we dance with Aeson he begins to say something about the time where you were in the past and how he was feeling… Soooooo is it what I think it is ? (Yes I’m so clear.) In the sens if we continue to romance Aeson. And will it do something about the feelings of the other gods about him if they knew of his previous life ?

Good luck with the game ~ !

I don’t know if you’ve seen it already, but Rohie has a Tumblr where she answers questions about characters and romance stuff (but make sure to read the Before You Ask), post short scenes and stuff like that.


#13393

I did it and I love the tumblr there are a lot of stuff. But I didn’t see any of this. So it still left me with my questions ~.


#13394

How does Tumblr work?


#13395

It’s a blog hosting service/social media site. You should be able to see it even if you don’t have an account. If you have any questions, you could PM me so it doesn’t clutter the thread.


#13396

I’m looking forward to seeing more of Hades. Even though he can’t be dad anymore.


#13397

Okay, so I had done about 3/4s of this before thinking it wasn’t worth it, but I’ll give it a shot. On the way to work, I had the idea to answer this as how my MC would respond. Both to answer this and give an idea about his personality. This is going to be a long post, but the inspiration just struck.

Evander has an odd interview

What’s the maximum amount of time your character can sit still with nothing to do?
“Absolutely nothing? I’d probably give myself a couple of minutes, if that, before my mind needs some activity. A song, mull over something I did a while ago or plan on doing… I could be sitting there not physically doing much of anything and my mind pretty much can’t remain inactive.”
How easy is it for your character to laugh?
“I’m not always easily amused–never really have been. And I lean more towards dry humor, especially after being on the run. But I can laugh, if that’s what you’re wondering.”
How do they put themselves to bed at night
“Best way is for me to let my mind calm down and let sleep take over. Knowing that I’m in a safe area does wonders for me.”
How easy is it to earn their trust?
“Well… in theory, it’s actually pretty easy to do this. Um… If you’d rather I didn’t go into some side story to try to give an analogy about my views, then, really, just don’t screw me over and you’re probably okay.”
How easy is it to earn their mistrust?
“Mistrust is usually in proportion to the betrayal, in both length and level of mistrust. I’ll let the small things slide pretty easily, but I can be a bit of a hard-ass on more important things. If I assume it’s your responsibility to keep an eye on me and you fail to do so (coughZeus*cough), we’re going to have some issues.”
Do they consider laws flexible, or immovable?
“Pretty much, I consider them immovable. I’m not about to pull a Javert and call for the year-long jail sentence for a man for stealing a loaf of bread, but when the law is clear on murder, keep your weapons to yourself. Even within the grey area (I’m not about to act as though I’ve never done anything wrong in my life), I’d rather you at least try to act morally.”
What triggers nostalgia for them, most often? Do they enjoy that feeling?
“Usually when someone is able to have a normal family moment. It doesn’t have to be some '50s era level of stereotypical sugar-coated nonsense, but, when someone my age is able to feel content and happy around their parents (especially when I was back on Earth), I sometimes look back to more… pleasant times in my life. I’d say that I love that sort of thing, but then I come back to the real world and feel more… vindictive. Same with watching other teens hanging out with their friends–until I came to Olympus, I hadn’t really had that kind of thing for a while. Yet another reason I want a normal life. I want to be able to share in joy again.”
What were they told to stop/start doing most often as a child?
“Aunt Alice (…Athena, technically) and… well, Hades… Well, the two of them always encouraged me to ask questions. Of course, I had learned to pick up on when it was a good time to ask and when it wasn’t (and there were the rare times when they really couldn’t explain certain concepts to me). On the other side, I remember a few times where my elementary school teachers noticed that, while I certainly played well with others, I mostly did so silently. They encouraged me (subtly and not-so-subtly) to open up around my peers. It was somewhere around 6th or 7th grade when it started to become more natural for me (at least by my standards). Athena and Hades didn’t need to do much to curb any bad habits around the house; a simple ‘Evander, don’t do that.’ with an explanation as to why it was bad was all I needed. Or we reached a compromise.”
Do they swear? Do they remember their first swear word?
“Well, I’m not exactly swearing other word, mind you, but it’s more important for me to survive than to watch my words. My first swear word was probably ‘damn’ or something.”
What lie do they most frequently remember telling? Does it haunt them?
“The wording’s a bit off here, honestly. ‘Most frequently remember telling’, as in I frequently remember it the most or that I’ve told that lie the most times? But I’m guessing it’s the first. ‘I’m okay.’ I haven’t bothered to keep count as to how many times I’ve told others this during my time on the run, but I’ve said it because I didn’t want any questions. It was easier that way. But, no, I wasn’t, for differing reasons. Saying that it haunts me would be a bit much, but I wish I could’ve known more people to reach out to. Would’ve saved me some trouble.”
How do they cope with confusion?
“If it’s a matter of not knowing information, I’d look it up or wait to find someone or something to answer my question. A person confusing me is more difficult, but I usually try to observe them. I’m not a fan of simply being content not knowing.”
How do they deal with an itch found in a place they can’t quite reach?
“Find or make a back scratcher. I usually prefer wall corners or brick walls, as they have the right texture.”
What color do they think they look best in? Do they actually look best in that color?
“Darker blues, greens, brown, greys and black tend to be my go-to colors. No pastels or anything too bright.” (He’s not wrong, but could use some white interspersed with all that. Maybe after a while living in Olympus.)
What animal do they fear most?
“I guess ‘Humans’ is too obvious and cliched. Actually, dogs, if I had to answer that. Most ‘scary’ animals are pretty avoidable if you know what you’re doing. Dogs… I have a habit of associating them with attack dogs. Friendly ones I’m okay with, but I have a habit of tensing up when I hear barking. Eh, sorry Artemis?”
How do they speak? Is what they say usually thought of on the spot, or do they rehearse it in their mind first?
“I… I mean, it kinda depends on the situation. I’m known for speaking in short sentences or a few words, but I’m also got the habit of going polysyllabic on people. Punctuated with a few um’s, uh’s, and what-not. Sometimes coming off as nervous.And while I’m not big on spitting out my first thoughts, I don’t bother with rehearsing unless I have to.”
What makes their stomach turn?
“Stomach viruses? That, obvious fake niceness, and straight-up liars.”
Are they easily embarrassed?
“…not exactly. Though, there are situations I’d rather not deal with.”
What embarrasses them?
“I’m not used to the idea of people fussing over me that aren’t Athena or Hades. Sort of like I’m not good with looking weak. And… I’m pretty selective over talking about my time on the run. And, um… Let’s just say there’s some things I’m simply awkward discussing with the opposite sex. Not that much experience, especially with someone closer to my age.”
What is their favorite number?
“Good question. Never really had much use for one, but… I always keep leaning towards 4. Not sure why.”
If they were asked to explain the difference between romantic and platonic or familial love, how would they do so?
“Romantic love is sort of one if those warm fuzzies kind of love… I honestly wish I was better at answering this without googling it, but I’ll give it a shot. I think it’s a lot like a warm blanket with a cup of hot cocoa with plenty of cinnamon and nutmeg on a cold winter’s night. Or that could just be my ideal. Platonic love reminds me of Callie and I. We’d probably not make good romantic partners, but we’d stand by each other if it came down to it. Not that good an example, but it’s the best I have right now. Familial… I guess I have to use Saint for a good example. I’ll admit to wanting to knock some sense into him, but the fact remains that he’s my brother. I haven’t known him for long either, but there’s a sense of belonging and kinship around him. We won’t always agree, but he’s sort of all I have.”
Why do they get up in the morning?
“School? Something new and weird to learn about this place? Trying to regain a normal life? Having actual friends? The off-chance I’ll get to see Av-… Forget I said that last one.”
How does jealousy manifest itself in them (they become possessive, they become aloof, etc)?
“Probably more aloof than anything. I don’t really remember this being too strong of an emotion.”
How does envy manifest itself in them (they take what they want, they become resentful, etc)?
“This, however… I usually have to bottle up such emotions and act aloof, but I can also get resentful and vindictive if it’s especially strong. When Aeson returned from his trip to fetch that glorified paperweight, I wasn’t happy over feeling like others were seeing me like the bad guy. I wasn’t mad at Aeson or any of the others. Just frustrated over my situation.”
Is sex something that they’re comfortable speaking about? To whom?
“Well, if it’s from a biological perspective, I could speak to anyone mature enough. If it’s more… interpersonal in nature… Um, well, Avery… I mean, she’s about the only one I can think of to help contact a counselor about such issues. As for performing the act (I’m sure that’s relevant to the question)… I’d rather just get the whole Cronus thing over with. I… sort of, um… my only first-hand experience happened while on the run and wasn’t one I care to remember. Gun to my head, though… There’s a certain blonde who, if she’d be okay with it… But, if not, then I totally understand. Yeah.”
What are their thoughts on marriage?
(After regaining composure from previous question) “I’m strictly monogamous, and I’m inspired by marriages lasting 50 or more years. So you can imagine my take on Zeus.”
What is their preferred mode of transportation?
“Buses and trains for long-distance travel. On foot for short distances.”
What causes them to feel dread?
“Chaotic crowds and Hunters. And Cronus.”
Would they prefer a lie over an unpleasant truth?
“The truth. I’d rather just get it over with instead of finding out later.”
Do they usually live up to their own ideals?
“I try to, and… I sort of try to make attainable goals. Ideals are a little too fluid, but I’d rather not disappoint myself.”
Who do they most regret meeting?
“Saxon. It was enough that I had to be part of another death, but the accusation that I caused it still haunts me. And, for reasons that are a bit complicated, Aelin. I still feel a sense that I care for her memory, but losing her hasn’t made my life any better.”
Who are they the most glad to have met?
“Not counting family… Aelin, for being a key part of some of my last good memories before I was on the run.”
Do they have a go-to story in conversation? Or a joke?
“Aside from something that happened that day or a particular memory that’s popped up? Can’t think of any.”
Could they be considered lazy?
“Um… Selectively active would be a better term. I put in the effort where needed, but I don’t like wasting energy where I don’t need to.”
How hard is it for them to shake a sense of guilt?
“It isn’t easy. I have to convince my own self that it isn’t my fault, especially if it’s something serious. Even then, lingering doubts can be pretty strong.”
How do they treat the things their friends come to them excited about? Are they supportive?
“It usually depends if I understand any of it, but I don’t like putting down others because of things like that. If it’s a mutual interest, however… I can absolutely geek out.”
Do they actively seek romance, or do they wait for it to fall into their lap?
“At this point, surviving to next year is a dream. Love? I wish I were so lucky. Then again, it’s about time I did something to make my own destiny. I want something of a normal life, and love’s part of it.”
Do they have a system for remembering names, long lists of numbers, things that need to go in a certain order (like anagrams, putting things to melodies, etc)?
“I try to associate a thought with a name until it sticks with me. Calypso–>music genre, for example. Other than that, I’d have to write it down just so I have a physical copy.”
What memory do they revisit the most often?
“My first actual date with Aelin, or the closest thing we had to one at that age.”
How easy is it for them to ignore flaws in other people?
“It depends on the nature of the flaw. I can ignore quite a few things, but serious issues aren’t easy for me to keep silent about. For the most part, though, it’s a case of me being some level of irritated but tolerant.”
How sensitive are they to their own flaws?
“I try to be observant of them. Quite honestly, my perfectionism often gets directed at myself. Sometimes even more than at others.”
How do they feel about children?
“I generally don’t mind them. Being raised as an only child, I never had the experience of helping out a younger sibling or being on the receiving end. Relating to kids my age wasn’t always easy, for that matter. But as long as they aren’t annoying or anything, I’m okay being around them. Now, having some of my own is another thing. Until I can raise them in the sort of environment I’d prefer, I don’t know if I could have one. It was enough that my biological mother couldn’t be there; I’d want to help raise my own child and watch them grow.”
How badly do they want to reach their end goal?
“After all of this… I’d rather not betray the gods or hurt those I care about, but I would really appreciate things going as smooth as possible. The gods want a hero, and I want a normal life. I’ll play their game for as long as they don’t hurt me or my friends. Though I wish I had a better understanding of things.”
If someone asked them to explain their sexuality, how would they do so?
“I’m attracted to the opposite sex. Um… Really, I don’t have much first-hand experience with it, so I’m pretty confused with some of the details outside of a textbook. Aside from Aelin, it’s been pretty one-sided.”

Not very long. He gets bored very easily.

How easy is it for your character to laugh?

He finds everything easy to laugh at. Especially himself.

How do they put themselves to bed at night

There is no pattern besides falling asleep on a mattress after contemplating the meaning of life and other topics with no answer.

How easy is it to earn their trust?

It is easy for Andrew to trust people with most things.

How easy is it to earn their mistrust?

If you do anything worse than take some of his food at lunch, and he’ll have a hard time trusting you. Andrew tends to hold grudges

Do they consider laws flexible, or immovable?

Nothing is illegal if the cops aren’t around!

What were they told to stop/start doing most often as a child?

He was always told to stop fooling around and take things seriously.

Andrew rarely swears and if so they are usually mild. His first “swear” was crap.

If they were asked to explain the difference between romantic and platonic or familial love, how would they do so?

Andrew would probably make a joke saying no one will love him in a romantic way

Andrew would start insulting who ever has what he wants. Probably put a flaming bag of crap on their doorstep.

This forum has made my day~
Can anyone jump on the Q&A?


#13407

So, you guys, a little question, if it’s okay. When the Gods do the reveal, do you have to blackmail them no matter what?
Cause that doesn’t sit well with me


#13408

No. If I remember correctly, you can just accept whatever they offer, which is immortality I think.


#13409

Blackmail for the win! Lol but seriously the only thing that the gods would offer you is immortality. But if you blackmail them, you can force them to leave you alone, bring your dead friend back to life and be immortal.


#13410

Wait, you get to choose? Or…?


#13411

You can choose to either force them to make a deal with you (this is basically blackmail that I just talked about where you can force the gods to give you three things that your MC wants.) Or just go along with them but they will only give you immortality but that’s only if you win the Trails.
