Awesome, thanks. I do wonder why it’s basically plot required to blackmail the Gods.


#13413

Well if you hate the gods (there’s a option that allows you to choose how you feel about them.) And I’m sure the blackmail was added so the players could have a choice to force them to do what the MC who hates the Gods wants them to do him/her/them.

Personally I just love the idea of seeing Zeus crapping his pants when I force him to swear on River Nyx to not break the deal with me or he’s gonna die. He’s actually afraid of Nyx. But then again, we’re talking about the King of Gods who is afraid of Cronus, Athena, Hera and depending on which myth, he’s also afraid of Hades and Poseidon.


#13414

I’m pretty sure you mean Styx.
Nyx is a goddess of night and doesn’t really play a big role in the mythology, while the River Styx is one of the rivers of Hades. Any vow you make upon the river Styx must be upheld or it will kill you. God or mortal.


#13415

Honestly there’s too many people and places in the mythology to keep track of. But they do say that Zeus is scared shitless of Nyx plus I wouldn’t exactly call her not playing a major role since she happens to be the goddess of night and one of the first beings to come into existence.


#13416

I’m just a tiny bit disappointed that Zeus is the only father now. There was so much potential with Uncle-Dad and Broseidon xD Also that glitch when you choose not to give a speech is driving me up the wall.


#13417

I know I wanted to do a stoic MC but somehow I ended up delivering an inspiring speech


#13418

Right?! And I didn’t want to blackmail the gods just like that. I also still don’t get if you get to ask for what you want or you have to pick all 3 things. The latter just seems a way to force the MC into immortality. -_-


#13419

For me blackmailing them was better since you get to be free, become a god, and have your first bf/gf back from the dead, when the gods only offer you immortality, it was also a bonus for my mc who hated the gods


#13420

Meh, I mean, I can see my MC pulling something similar, but maybe not right off the bat. Makes the MC seems greedy. Also my MC wouldn’t want immortality, and bringing back the first RO has a big potential for disaster.


#13421

The thing is if you ask them later, they wouldn’t have sworn by Styx and wouldn’t be bound to give you your demands


#13422

Fair. Mostly what bothers me is the lack of choice. They’re both basically the same thing. (Also the fact that I can’t play past the no speech part -_-)


#13423

I seem not to be able to get Hades as a father I kill Saxon and with as my highest stat but no cigar just poisiden


#13424

Both Hades and Poseidon have been removed as fathers, Zeus is now canonically the Bearer’s father.
The game is currently being rewritten, as such the demo doesn’t yet reflect that.

We’re not sure when the game will be updated, however.

I hope this answered some questions.


#13425

Hades will always be my dad.

Sweet new picture btw @impeccably-stressed


#13426

True. If father’s day would come then I’d ditch Zeus and spend some quality time with Hades.

Meanwhile Aeson is sulking in the background.

@impeccably-stressed Nice profile pic pastel queen :sparkles:


#13427
Yeah, Hades is the best Uncle-Father a Bearer could ask for.

Insanely Jealous and Insecure Bearer: Sure, Aeson, Hades may be your father, but is he your uncle too??? I don’t think so!!!

@MichaelCrank @Fay thanks, you two! i just felt it was time to actually start using my own art for my avatar instead of stolen comic book frames other people’s art.


#13428

We’ll take Aeson’s place as the #1 daughter/son.

We’ll push him off his throne, goodbye Aeson

Hades is about to get a replacement.


#13429

And Poseidon will always be the father of Evander.

But since Zeus is the only father now, I guess the parental Godly figure who Evander connects the most with will be…Athena. :grin: I just can’t picture my main Bearer ever warming up to Zeus or tolerating his behavior for too long. And while he did love Hades, the love never went beyond that of a love for a uncle (unlike Damon, who saw Hades as a father figure, which led to conflict in feelings when he reunited with Hades when Damon was originally a son of Hades).

So I guess that makes Athena his father-mother-mentor? The Goddess of wisdom is certainly the one who I can see Evander unconsciously mirroring the most in mannerisms aside from Poseidon (he may not be a possible father anymore, but I like to think that anyone who learned Evander was a Demigod were very convinced that the boy was a child of the God of the Seas.


#13430

Zeus being dad means my MC is basically an orphan ಠ_ಠ

(No love for Athena here and Hades is better off as uncle)


#13431

Aww

but Poseidon at least seem to have a sense of humour ! :kissing_smiling_eyes:
