Are you still accepting players? If so I'd love to play Eris.

If there's a wedding, be sure not to invite her!

I too am actually quite interested in this idea  as well.  However...how is the male:female ration?  I'd be no fun to throw that off too badly.

Isn't that what caused the problem in the first place, she didn't get invited?

Honestly don't know. Think we're leaning a bit female but not badly at all.

Just wondering if there was an update on whether you're accepting players? If the answer is no that's fine.

No crying when she decides to make you all pay :P

I'm pretty sure it's still open.
Only 4-5 people have actually detailed their characters

Alright, well I will go ahead a do up a CS for her and see where we go from there. I do apologize if my above post came off the wrong way, wasn't meaning to sound pushy or anything. Just ever since I saw this thread this character has been building in my head and she wants out.

Go ahead and let her out.  I'll add mine after I see who you have chosen.

Hopefully, I'll have this soul-sucking report I'm working on finished tonight and than I can get on with the fun stuff.

I thought aphrodite was the love one?

Also, I thought Eros and Thanatos were just psychological names for the two human desires that drive our actions...you know, sex and death...

Aphrodite was more the goddess of beauty. Eros was her companion the god of love.


Kind of like how The roman god of love was Cupid yet they also had Venus.

Not really a 'kind of' case- Roman mythology was pretty much just taking Greek mythology and changing the names. :P

"Eros" is the Greek word for desire.  "Cupid" is the Latin word for desire.  So, the Roman gods are not really different at all, so much as cultural transplants with the names translated.

And Aphrodite is the goddess of Love, Beauty, Pleasure, and Procreation.  Her domain covered love in all it's aspects, including platonic, or 'pure' love. 

Eros purview was focused on erotic love or desire - in fact that's where the word erotic comes from.

In the love department, Aphrodite was the major and more venerated deity.

While a bit simplistic and not entirely (though mostly) accurate, a case can be made to claim Eros isn't a love god at all, but the god of Lust.

Could I play Apollo? Ever since I read the Iliad, being a god that rains down arrows on unsuspecting people would seem pretty fun. Do we need to submit a character sheet or do we just assume our roles automatically when the game finally starts?
