Not to be terribly rude myself but I'm going to be the one to flat out say, your approach to these questions comes off to even me as overly condescending and arrogant. I don't mean this to insult you, but to simply tell you the age old advice; Back it down a notch, chief.
Further, the theme: Greek Mythology. Wasn't entirely myth. Gods are still around today, shifting from their former lives as immortal deities to living amongst mortals, doing whatever they see fit.
Tone: Greek Mythology. There will be emotions, conflict, abuse, magic and all kinds of insanity present. The tone will probably bob between humor, tension and a spectrum of emotions.
Scope: Greek Mythology. The Pantheon are spread all over the world, all holding differing levels of power and the interpersonal relationship between the Immortals themselves are slightly compromised. And now the Titans are rising back up to do what the Titans usually do when they finally break out of their cages, roll up their sleeves and get back to breaking things.
And this is a roleplay, the narrative direction will probably be better fleshed out and explained once the interest check/sign ups are done and over with.
At first I was going to just pass this off as a bit of overaggression by a fan of the GMs or the game. Then I read...
As we aren't requiring anyone to have extensive knowledge of Greek Mythology (I've got enough Greek myth information in my head to fill a small library), I'd encourage you to submit for a character if you'd like to play. There simply needs to be a willingness to research what you don't know about the characters and feel comfortable asking for clarifications or even answers to questions that you can't find.
Verse, that was condescending and rude, and as one of the co-GMs, that is not an attitude I want to see again in the future for this game -- from you or anyone else.
To use your own words: back it down a notch. If you want to be helpful, then be helpful, but no one has the right to belittle another for asking a question.
The fact that one of the GMs of the game is so willing to rabidly lash out at a potential player without bothering to double check or clarify my intentions in my post... well. I've no interest in that sort of Forums behavior. Moirae, I appreciate your attempt to clean up the mess your co-GM made of simple questions, but between his tone and lack of legitimate, informed answers, I think I'll pass.
No hard feelings, I wish you folks the best of luck in this game, but I have no room in my life for the sort of drama that's already shown up.
