I won't be able to post as often as I used to but I should be able to every day or so, maybe a few times per day. Anyway, heres my idea!
Titans Rise Again....
We are demigod kids and we have to find a series of lost weapons and armor under Zeus' orders because the Titans are rising again and we need to stop them! Now, these weapons are of both Greek and Roman origin. Here they are:
The Armour of Achilles, created by Hephaestus and said to be impenetrable (Greek mythology)
The Helmet of Hades, created by the Cyclopes for Hades. It made the wearer invisible. Also used by Perseus. (Greek Mythology)
The Aegis, Zeus' shield, often loaned to his daughter Athena, also used by Perseus (Greek mythology).
Poseidon's Trident, used to create horses and some water sources in Greece. It could cause earthquakes when struck on the ground. (Both Greek and Roman)
The Thunderbolts of Zeus, given to him by the Cyclops in Greek mythology, or by Vulcan in the Roman mythology. (Both Greek and Roman)
Heracles's bow, Which also belonged to Philoctetes, its arrows had the Lernaean Hydra poison. (Forgot where this one came from XD)
Now, you are allowed to pick which god whose kid you are. It's good if you know a bit about mythology. I will be a son of Poseidon (totally original XD)! There may be a little romance involved so I would prefer a girl since I am male XD.
Each of these weapons/pieces of armor are hidden across Europe. Here is the location of the weapons.
1. Armor of Achilles - Ural mountains - Russia
2. Heracle's Bow - Hamburg - Germany
3. Poseidon's Trident - English Channel - Between England and france
4. Zeus' Thunderbolt - Gibraltar Strait - Between Morocco and Spain
5. Hades' Helmet - Roman Colosseum
6. Aegis - Aegean Sea
Appearance: Mahmoud stands tall at around 6 foot. He has dark black hair as he is part indian and part arabian. He is medium-built. His skin is dark and tanned, with scars all over his body from previous quests. He normally wears black pants and DC shoes with vibrant colors. His shirts vary in color and make. He has a scar running through his eyebrow and eye rendering that eye useless. He has multiple battle scars over his neck, back, and chest. He has sturdy legs and large feet and hands. His arms are well shaped and thick.
Personality: He is secretive and keeps to himself. He talks rarely but has opened up a little bit recently. He is the leader type. He loves music, especially dubstep. He loves having fun and fighting. He is an amazing fighter, specialized in using the bow. His arrows always hit their mark. He is decent with a sword, not the best however.
Also, I would prefer a newbie demigod, one who is not as experienced. Be creative!
((By the way, it is Dj-dark/Monsieur-Fluffybuns/Dark-Ninja for those who know me. If multiple people apply for this spot, I guess I will have be fair and pick by who is best RPer. I repeat, it is NOT first come, first serve. Sorry bout that!))

Name: Astrid Delano
Appearance: Astrid has copper red hair that falls just to her shoulders, usually wearing it straight with her bangs pulled back into a clip. Her green eyes have flecks of gold in them and are rimmed in dark black eyeliner, her skin is pale and imprinted with a small birthmark just below her collar bone. She stands at about 5’6 and wears dark jeans and t-shirts with cool cut outs and designs along with her favourite pair of boots.
Parent: Artemis (If that is alright?)
Personality: TBD (Sorry, I find that it’s easier to make a characters personality as the story goes on.)
Bio: Astrid knows that she is a demi-god, she has for a long time but has never actually had to fight for her life since she has never been in any real danger. She lives with her father in a small house and goes to school like a normal teenager, having a small group of friends that she hangs out with every now and then but mostly keeps to herself. She likes to read and has a collection of various swords that she loves, occasionally sparing with her father whether it be with the swords or just hand-to-hand combat.
((Let me know if that is alright, pleeeeaase!!))
((Brilliant! So, this is going to start off with us both being teleported to Mount Olympus to meet with Zeus. He gives us this quest to find all these weapons then rendezvous with him and Ares (a god and demigod need to work together to kill a god) in Greece, the first realm of the gods to fight and kill the Titans that are beginning to rise again. We have 20 days to go across the whole continent. I like a challenge. The locations are in the order above in the thread description so Ural Mountains first. :D))
((Yay! I'm glad she's acceptable! ^ . ^ Okay! I'm excited and nervous to start this XD Could you start?))
((No problemo! And don't be nervous! XD))
Mahmoud was sparring with some new demigods at the camp. It was one on five and he wasn't even breaking a sweat. He was one of the best warriors at the camp but he was humble. But when it came to fighting, he was fierce. He was one of the few children of the big three. Then, it happened. He vanished and felt himself being pulled, transported through space and time. He landed hard on the floor of Mount Olypmus and looked up. Was that Zeus? Does this always happen to me? Like serioously? He could do nothing but gape.
((I'll try not to!))
Astrid had just gotten home from school, she ran up to her room and threw her battered black backpack onto her bed before turning around and going back downstairs. She found a note on the fridge that read,
Be back soon.
Jessie was her dad’s best friend that had decided to move in with them so that he could keep her company when her father was at work. Needless to say she saw right through that and knew he was there to keep an eye on her when her dad couldn’t. She was just about to go into the basement to get a few hits with the punching bag when she transported and landed painfully on a cold floor. She pushed herself up and looked around, she could hardly believe what she saw.
He looked over to the sound of another thud and saw a beautiful girl. What is going on? He shook his head and composed himself. He stood up and bowed. "Lord Zeus, what have you call-" he said but was abruptly cut off by the god. "I need your help, those pesky titans are back. I need some demigods so I called for you." he said as if hating to ask mere demigods for help. "But, what can we do?" he asked, slightly confused. "I have a quest for you, take this map and find these weapons then meet me in Greece. You have twenty days." Zeus said in his booming voice as a map of Europe with a dot in the Ural mountains magically appearing. "As you find one object, the next spot on the map will show" Zeus said, confirming his suspicions. "This girl is your partner, now run along" he said. Before Mahmoud could even utter another word, they were being transported again, landing on the soft, snowy ground of the Ural mountains in Russia. He felt and his bow was strapped to his back and his sword in the sheath. He pulled the map out again.
Astrid had listened to the conversation between the boy and… Zeus? She couldn’t speak so she just listened and watched before she was again transported. She stood up and brushed herself off, she didn’t like the feeling of being transported, it irritated her and threw her off. She looked around again and sighed, she had no clue why she was picked to do this. She had never even fought a single thing in her life and now she was on some kind of mission with some random guy that she had never seen before. She found that she had a small dagger strapped to her thigh and a sword was strapped to her back, resting in between her shoulder blades. She reached back and pulled it from the sheath, finding it to be one of her own… her best sword, the one she worked with the most. She replaced it in the sheath and looked over at the boy. “What now?”
"We follow the quest, duh!" he replied, observing the map. It zoomed in and showed they were not too far away from the first location. Maybe a mile, 2 tops. He sighed, he liked to do quests alone and now he was stuck with her? She probably had never even been to a demigod camp let alone fight. She was a plain clothes person. He put the map in his pocket after folding it up and began to follow along the route the map showed him, wordlessly. Zeus was so annoying at times. 20 days to go all over Europe. He was so surprised. This quest would be difficult, even for him. He had even beat Percy in swordfight and was one of the strongest demigods in the world. And now he was stuck with this noob who probably didn't even know what she was doing. He was happy it was cold in his camp and so he was wearing a coat. It really benefitted him in this freezing situation. This would be one he.ll of a trip.
“Thanks, Einstein. I could have figured that one out for myself.” Astrid rolled her eyes and started after him, staying a few steps behind him. Great, first time I get sent out to do something awesome and I get stuck with some jacka$$ with a super ego. She was thankful that she had worn a long sleeve shirt with her jean jacket today, she wouldn’t be warm but she wouldn’t freeze to death either.
"Shut up, we are already stuck with each other, don't make it worse. The first place is just over this hill, expect some fighting and try to stay alive please." he said, not sure if he meant those last few words. He unsheather his sword and twirled it around expertly. They went over the snow covered hill, ankle-deep in the snow. Suprisingly, he saw the entrance to an abandoned mine of some sorts. He cautiously walked down and began to peel away the lengths of wood covering the entrance with the help of his sword, popping them out one by one. It was pretty easy, this was on old mine, the wood weak and the nails rusted. After enough were aside to slide through he entered and grabbed one of the lit torches on the wall to light the darker path down ahead. He looked back then turned forward slowly starting down the passageway.
Astrid followed behind him, grabbing her sword and keeping it firmly in her hand. “Try to stay alive please…” She mimicked him under her breath, slipping through the entrance after him. She couldn’t believe him… he didn’t even know her and now he’s treating her like an incompetent, little child. As she followed behind him she was starting to think that maybe he was right to treat her like a little kid, she was not quite afraid but not at all confident about being in this dark tunnel… She knew what could possibly lurk in the dark and that is what was unnerving about the situation, however the familiar weight of the sword in her hand was enough to keep her calm for the time being.
