The Ancient Greek Mythology Crew. Dec. 11th, 2008 @ 03:18 PM

Hay, welcome to the Greek Mythology Crew.

This crew is for user who enjoy and love the ancient greeks and their wisdom.

Their are many gods of the greeks, twelve main gods and a few lesser. Their are also the Titans which are the mums, dads, uncles and auties of the gods on Mt. Olympus.

Let me strart by saying that everything originated from Chaos, which gave birth too Gaia (Mother Earth) and Uranus (Sky). Which gave birth too the titans and so on...

Their were also many heros from the greek mythology... Like Heracles, Theseus, Persues, Bellerphon and many more.

I just gave you a breif encounter of Greek mythology and barely scratctched the surface.

Their are many more things lke the voyage of the argonauts, the trojan war. The Odyssey. The minotaur, and medusa.

I hope you find out alot of greek things in this thread, like hercles 12 labours and discuss things that intrest you the most!
Also about Spartan hoplites and their phalax formation.

Have fun.

Rules:
No Spam
Reasonable posts.
Grammer- we need too know what your saying.

Have fun discussing greek culture and mythology!

hey, i enjoy Greek mythology, its' pretty interesting. Right now in English I happen to be reading Antigone. As for a favorite God, I don't think I hacve one, so I will default to the god Zeus, the king :). P.s., Im not shocked to see few NGers interested in mythology. It requires intelligence to comprehend, after all

I liked hercules 12 labours. Too bad he died. Full story of how he died:

When Hercules was trying to take his bride Deianeira home, he had to cross the Evenus River. Nessus, a centaur, served as ferryman. First he rowed Hercules across and then, as he started to row Deianeira across, he tried to rape her. Hercules, justly enraged, drew one of his poisoned arrows and shot the centaur. Before he died, the centaur persuaded Deinaeira to take some of his blood to use as a love potion should Hercules ever cause her to worry. The blood was poison and deianeira soaked hercules tunic in it. The tunic stuck too hercules flesh and when he went too take it off, it ripped his skin off.

The 12 labors are these labors that hercules had to do in order to be forgiven. He was driven into a frenzy by hera and he killed his wife and kids.

Some the the labors are the nemon lion, the hydra, and the capture of cerberus.

Yeah the 12 labours were what Hercules had too do for his cousin (which was a king). He had too do it for forgive-ness. Hera made Hercules mental and he killed his wife and kids.

Oh by the way Merry Christmas guys! :D

It's only called mythology because of the Jesus loveing faggots.

I support this thread. I do enjoy a good tale of Mythology. I particularly enjoy Greek and Norse mythology. My favorite ones include the creation of certain mythical beasts and their work.

I think the God of War games really put a nice touch on the whole thing. A little distorted; yes, but still attractive.

I might post here once and a while. I'm really interested in Greek mythology, and want to know a bit more about it.

Trivia: Hercules wasn't actually a god.

But I'm sure you all know this.

Seconded, Ever played Rome: Total War? The game is amazing, it simulates a real battle ECT: If you make the soldiers run after the enemy for ages they get tired and can't run for awhile. Its amazing and too top if off....

My favorite unit! The Spartan Hoplite! Which even includes the Phalax formation!

While were talking about spartans, has anyone seen the film 300?

Amazing film about a Spartan 3 day stand-off against a massive persian army.

Its a good movie, but not really true. Ya 300 Spartans did fend of the persian army for 3 days, but the persian army was normal people. Not the monsters that the movie shows
