The Golden Age [7DRL 2015]
« on: March 11, 2015, 03:16:01 PM »
The gods of Olympus have chosen some lucky mortals to enter the tower. Be the first to climb the 7 levels of the tower to lift the Goblet of Zeus to ascend to the Pantheon!!!1!1 Battle against Hector, Achilles, Helen, Xena, Odysseus, as you all struggle to avoid the minions and challenges of the tower to reach the top. If some other, greater mortal, lifts the Goblet of Zeus before you, do not be dismayed. As long as you were not slain, you may return to the tower to challenge again, albeit older, wiser, but maybe slower, and weaker. Standard roguelike gameplay with a focus on rival heroes that you can form temporary alliances with.

I like the rival heroes idea and the Olympian theme.

Yes! Great theme! I honestly think no RL really took the Greek mythology and ran with it. But "goblet of Zeus" sounds kind of wacky to me, as if "goblets" belong further north. Might something like "cup" or "amphora" of Zeus be more appropriate? Not that it matters, and I may be amiss. In any case, your Golden Age RL has all my well-wishings.

As always,
