Just post your questions here. I'll help guide us through the storybook here.

I was having issues with it. I'll remake it as soon as possible.

Symbolism in the oracles prediction~

Kingdom of the Sky: Zeus's domain

White Stag: Artemis

Last stanza tells about the fates of three people.

The rest you can figure out or just work with as you go.

I'm not sure if any of the specific people would refer to Keira, but I KNOW she would have some difficulties in this - Hades seems to be presented as the challenger here - As her father, this would be hard for Keira - Just thought I'd point that out -

If any stanza were to apply to her, I think it would be the one that says -

One shall thwart the bond that can't be broken

- and that would just be because, you know, Hades is her father - pretty strong bond there - Yeah... Just thought I'd point that out to everyone...

Do you want us to start planning what should happen here? Or should we wait?

I think it would be more fun if we watched our characters mature throughout the story and then figure out which stanza best fits which character....

What do you think?

Yes, that was actually the intended point of the poem. I wouldn't just assign people lines. That would be pointless.

And here is a copy of the poem


"You will venture to the island of the Demon King
He's forever watching, always waiting,
To watch you struggle with Hades's knot
And lose what, in vain, you've always sought.

You'll travel by the river that runs forever
Follow the white stag, a curious endeavor
Who'll show you the way that you must fly
To reach the kingdom of the Sky

One shall thwart the bond that can't be broken
Two shall wish they'd never spoken
The others will find the truth... following what is real
Just enough to complete death's deal"
“One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes”

Actually, Hades could be one of the offenders but not the main one. I will reveal more throughout the story.

as this i have a few ideas

You will venture to the island of the Demon King
He's forever watching, always waiting, (( maybe not the under world, but to the sea of monsters, where they seek an old sea spirit)


To watch you struggle with Hades's knot
And lose what, in vain, you've always sought. ( Hades knot, is death of course, and the sought could be the answer for the quest)

You'll travel by the river that runs forever
Follow the white stag, a curious endeavor ( well in the sea of monsters a river that runs forever, there that leads to a the hunters camp)

Who'll show you the way that you must fly
To reach the kingdom of the Sky ( maybe by sky they mean to find the knowledge you seek, so she points us the way to go, through a monster or such)

One shall thwart the bond that can't be broken
Two shall wish they'd never spoken ( well yes i think it should be between a god and half blood, then maybe a romance between two of them that ends badly for them, or two friends get into a fight that splits the group)

The others will find the truth... following what is real
Just enough to complete death's deal ( well maybe the fight makes the three above leave in anger or fear then the rest come and learn the knowledge, then they escape death from a great evil)


I just think it should not be so cut and dry as it sounds, maybe they think it goes a different way but it takes some different ways

Gah, sorry, I gotta drop out. I'm kind of overwhlemed.
There once was a cat.
He wasn’t particularly fat.
Fuzzy was his favorite mat.
And really, that was that.

Oh, but did you really think so?
Keep reading, it’s just the start of the show!
And as for how far this tale will go…
Well, even the cat doesn’t know.

I was thinking that the "river that runs forever" might refer to the river Styx. And in terms of main antagonists, maybe one of the Titans would work well in that role?

i think that is to obvious, the prophecies usually just sound easy, but are usually the opposite, or hard but then are actually basic.maybe we should try to get creative with the lines and go somewhere else with them. Or

This is an example of one from the latest Percy Jackson book. It was given to Annabeth, Percy's best friend and the leader of the Athena cabin.

You shall delve in the darkness of the endless maze.
The dead, the traitor, the lost one raise.
You shall rise or fall by the ghost king's hand.
The child of Athena's final stand.
Destroy with a hero's final breath,
and to lose a love that's worse than death.



In that, Annabeth and Percy and their friends went through the Labyrinth, the endless maze.
One of the campers they found in the maze ended up being a traitor.
Pan, the lost god, was found in the maze.
They met King Minos, the ghost king. They survived though.
They found Daedalus, the maker of the maze and a child of Athena, and he died.
Annabeth's friend that betrayed the camp ended up not dying, but something worse.

See how it works out? That's how it will somehow go along in the storybook.
