So You Think You Know Mythology...

All right, ever since someone (Asha forgive my bad memory) created a mythology quiz, I've been wanting to have a contest. So, here's my call to those ancient adepts, let's have a Mythology Contest!!!

Your job is to..., well tell ya the truth, I really haven't thought over the specifics. But, it will be new, fresh, innovative, and above all else, fun! Whose interested? Say "aye"!

Well I don't know too much about mythology to participate in this contest.

But at least, to make this more 'visible' and attract some people's attention, perhaps you could HCM those that participated in Anti's mythological quiz (Lex, Anti (), Guarder, etc) and tell them about this thread. Some people don't really bother to look in this forum that regularly.

Pending formal creation...

This contest will soon be active, but in the meantime, I'd like to ask for additional contestants. I'm HCM'ing the participants of Anti's mythology quiz...

EDIT - It seems Anti put the contest in the VW, so...nuff said. Its history, so now I haven't the slightest idea who participated.

Let me see if i can remember.

Hera had the Giant watch over one of the 4755884933049930-0400r9495950+994949 wives Zeus had. I cant remember which wife though. Maybe Io.

Hermes was sent by Zeus to kill the Giant.
He waited till it fell asleep & quickly Slayed it.
I guess he did not SEE that coming

This was supposed to be a test.
I figure i would throw an easy one & see who can get it

It's been awhile since i read Greek Mythology.

Zeus only had one official wife.  He didn't let that stop him from sleeping around tho.  Hera was Zeus' wife

Also Zeus unlike Odin and the like was not all seeing.  The greek gods were the most flawed of any mythos.
