So, Earth 27 doesn't exist in NeOlympus, but these character backstories exist there?

Are you going to update this? Because it would get cramped with the new (and future) characters in it

In NeOlympus, the Minotaur is the reincarnation of the same ancient monster.

As part of their efforts to adapt their divine powers to the different cosmology of Elysium (the world which "NeOlympus" takes place in), the Olympians poured the souls of past heroes and slain monsters into the Well of Souls. This act stabilized the magic on this new world.

As a result, the souls of monsters now inhabit the bodies of newborn children and upon reaching their teenage years, those with monster souls undergo changes that transform them into the monster of myth. The Minotaur is one such example.


The current Minotaur is the fourth reincarnation of the beast. Rather than live in exile or confinement as it has in previous lives, the Minotaur became a gladiator in the fighting pits of the Spartan Empire, often given the charge of executing criminals and heretics for sport while entertaining the masses who come to watch such spectacle.

The Minotaur's name is Asterion the fifth.

what is the story about all this?
Reply
:iconroysovitch:
Roysovitch Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2017  Professional General Artist
The Olympian gods are reimagined as actual beings that need worship to survive. When we Earthlings stopped worshipping them, they set out to find a new world in a new dimension that they could use for subjects. They conquered the gods of this new world, adapted to its new esoteric patterns, and built a new society where they were the only religion.
Now they've advanced the culture and technology of this new world into a steampunk-esque technological revolution era and things are beginning to unravel for them as the Titans are threatening to break free of their dimensional prison, a cult of heretics are beginning to question the gods' divinity, and Ares and Athena are about to go to war with each other.

Steampunk Greek Gods? That sounds awesome. Is this completely original?
Reply
:iconroysovitch:
Roysovitch Featured By Owner May 10, 2017  Professional General Artist
Yes. I have reimagined their origins, past stories, and then modernized them by having them abandon Earth to conquer a new world, usurping the primitive godd there, and convincing the peoples there to worship their pantheon.
Almost two thousand years later, the tribal people of this new world have developed an industrial world where the Greek Gods are not just stories but divine celebrities, leaders, and iconic figures.
But all is not well in this world they call Elysium. The Titans stir in their prison, old rivalries threaten to unravel everything, and a secret heretic movement conspires to overthrow the gods from the shadows...

You mentioned wanting to do animals/monsters in NeOlympus, would they be visible to the populace, or would they be like folk tales?
Reply
:iconroysovitch:
Roysovitch Featured By Owner May 11, 2017  Professional General Artist
Somehow missed this question. Probably due to the stupid comment glitch.
Monsters are visible to the populace and much a fact of life for Elysians. Dealing with monsters is actually a necessity of life.
Travelers stick to roads and routes that are well-guarded, make sacrifices at the temples or pray at the shrines of gods like Hermes and Poseidon to ensure they'll have a safe journey.
Heroes and ambitious mortals alike are hired by towns to get rid of local monster problems while other locales hire trappers to capture the most impressive creatures to hold in displays at zoos.
Of course, monsters come in all shapes and sizes. So while a sphinxling might be common sight at a zoo, the Sphix itself is a truly unique creature that would likely ne impossoble for a non-heroic mortal to take alive... and Typhon would be a challenge even for a god like Zeus to take on (so it's a good thing that Typhon is imprisoned in Tartarus)

It's all good.

So are sacrifices just crops, animals, and sometimes money on Elysium, or are there humans as well?

Looking up Typhon, and then Echidna.. Yikes.

Human sacrifice is only done in the name of justice, in the form of criminal executions.
That said there were some zealot movements in more barbaric times that practiced human sacrifice and it was common for even civilized nations like Sparta and Corinth to sacrifice their captured enemies before battles to curry favor from the gods during wartimes as recently as two hundred years ago.

There's that. Using your recent chapter as an example, if a normal person heard Apollo saying "I'm in need of a muse." Would a woman or a father with a daughter be able to offer themselves like that?

We still have a few gods to tackle and then I'd like to do a handful of Titans and some secondary gods, maybe even a male and female version of the mortals from different parts of their new world to give an example of the different cultures. We also want to do some monsters.
Not many Titans play a vital role as individuals in the story at this point so it isn't that vital to see many of them, also several of them are completely dead.

The originals died but upon coming to Elysium, their spirits were put into the reincarnation cycle with the heroes as a way to help maintain the gods' myths and legends.
Now some people become monsters about the time they reach adulthood (like Medusa, gorgons, the minotaur, Arachne) and other monster types are just a new species introduced to Elysium (like Sirens and Harpies).

I went with a very obscure version of Dionysus' backstory that actually makes him the son of Hades and Persephone as I wanted to make sure that Hades had a kid that was important to the Pantheon.
