Project Minotaur takes place in an environment where humans have advanced to a level of scientific mastery very similar to the one achieved today, but they have an edge that we don't. Gods, in this world, are very real and present beings. However, something recently happened to one of the world's great pantheons, the Greek gods of Mount Olympus, which was so terrible that the remaining gods of the world have gone into hiding. Exactly what happened is unknown, but the cause has been tracked to the quarantined city of Knossos. Victim of a mysterious and deadly disease outbreak following a disastrous tsunami, the city was walled off from the rest of the world by Mayor Minos of the Minos Corporation in order to save the rest of humanity from a virus so deadly it made the Black Plague seem as harmful as the flu. Now the city appears deserted, except for the Minos Corporation's single skyscraper, where lights can still

It was a calm Summer morning in Danville. The birds were chirping, the wind breeze was soft, everything was quiet. Suddenly, a Vortex opened on the city limits. Out of it came out a young man in his twenties, with black hair and dark-brown eyes, wearing black jeans and a black sweater. Looking around, he made sure that nobody was close.
"I'm starting to wonder if I should spent some Summer days here." he spoke to no-one. Turning to the Vortex. "Hey Sabrina, we're here! Don't you want to see the Tri-State Area?"
Out of the Vortex came out a young teenager, around seventeen years old. She was wearing an orange skirt and a white shirt with a pink jacket over it. Her sneakers matched her jacket. She had short blond hair, with a black cap over it and light-blue eyes. She stared at the city in awe. "So that's Danville." she said after a few minutes. Looking at the boy.

And to make matters worse, yesterday a girl appeared in front of her house, telling her to step back because Phineas was her boyfriend.

But the only thing Rocket cared about where the muffins that rested on a tray, covered with a glass cupola. The muffins themselves were brown, with red and blue berries baked into them. The top of them were covered with a perfect thick layer of frosting.

that this time, yes, this time something would happen. In the past she and
her mother usually got out of the house when he was drinking, or he'd come

She jumped as she heard something smash down the hall.
"Oh please, please…what did I do that was so wrong? Why won't someone help

Tears slid down her face as she sat there on her bedroom floor, holding her

There was another yell from her mother and then there was silence.
