Scion: Ties That Bind

After the Underworld
The right way to party

Well it was nice to be out of Underworld. don’t get me wrong my dad’s place is nice and all but a lot of things were a little gloomy. But hay were out know and Conner is getting married. I guess that is a good thing. The bachelor party that Johnny through was amazing. although some of it is a bit of a blur. After the party was over we got put through some test by what turned out to be Pan. The test was easier than I though. O’well we passed not clear as to how but we did. Johnny’s party was great but the party after the wedding was better. although I think I might have stared at Aphrodite a little to much. I don’t think you could blame me on that though she is very beautiful. That party eventually came to an end and we all went to sleep. In the middle of the night we all got woken up by what turned out to be Odin. He was very unhappy…that is probably not a strong enough word, he was pissed. After reaming his son up one side and down 3 others he told all of us that we where worthless and that we are going to watch his daughter. So baby sitting some one how is on the verge of becoming a goddess of assassins will make us better scions. Well I don’t see how but this is not the guy you want to argue with, so time to baby sit where is my box.

Seamus and the Unfinished Task

It feels so good to have finished my fathers task……..or at least to put it off for better things, I think he will understand. Ran into Ira in the underworld today and found out that he got smart and left Julian as well. Later that day we got to kill Julian again, ah i never tire of seeing him dieing, or just in a miserable state. He made some new friends since the last time we had seen each other, they seem to be on the up and up, though the other Irish Scion bugs me. He is a nice enough guy and i like him but the odds of 3 of us being together at once is astronomical. But to make everything fair i decided to give him a wedding present. I hope he loves here because the threads that bind them will last longer than even their eternal bodies. Another good thing is the lucky clover is still around and my free drinks for life still stands! Now off to get hammered…….and see if the artifact room is still there.

Ira's New Crew

So it would seam that my re-found moral fortitude has paid off. I might have become like him had I not turned myself around. I might have been right here fighting for Julian on the front lines getting my ass handed to me by a rag tag bunch of snot nosed scions. It was good (if not a bit odd and entirely unexpected) to see a familiar face down in the underworld. Though I must say that it is good to know that I wasn’t the only one that abandoned the idea of following in Julian’s footsteps. Connor dying must have had the same effect on him that it had on me. I wish I had a picture of Julian’s face in those last moments as our team took down the last bastard of Atlantis yet again.

So Hades was rather appreciative of our services. We got both Alysa and Johny back as well as a new friend from our cousin pantheon. Hades also gave us personalized gifts. There no shin-obi but I’ve got myself some followers again. One step closer to following in the footsteps of dear ol’ ma. I’ll build my army at any cost. Well, almost any cost. One thing that I can say has had a positive effect on me since discovering my birthright was learning the value of dear friends. Friends that you would lay your life down for. Not just to save theres but simply to make there life worth livin. To do what you had to do to make things right.

Well, I’ve gotta go see a man about some strippers. How else is Connor supposed to know that Alysa is the one if he can’t withstand a little temptation before the wedding day.

Entry 3
Writing about the fighting is good and all, but really there was so much more to the end of our adventure than that. There was of course the loving on me sweet Alyssa after we got her back from Hades, the dancing and the party. Well I guess maybe it is best to be writing about the fighting after all, it was a good one. So the git, Julian, had himself a tent by the river of Styx way out from the battle, keeping to himself as it were. Really it is his style. The dandy never saw it coming. First I took on his shape and sent his personal guards to the front of the battle leaving him all alone but not defenseless, he put up quite the fight. As it turns out, he can control the River of Styx, and it really has a wallop, especially when you become a giant ice cube floating in it as it were. Then all of the sudden I was flung through the air and Julian was forced to break open the ice cube before I clobbered him, which I did anyways as soon as I was out of the damned thing. The finishing blow came from Dmitri’s arrow right through the git where he dropped dead, and good rid to rubbish.
The best part of the whole adventure was of course returning home to the Lucky Clover where I asked Alyssa to marry me and we had a great time celebrating as it were; looks like we will be off to help some bloke fix some problems with the Avalonian pantheon, but before that I’m getting hitched. Now that will be a great adventure!

Scion Knacks

So, I finally got my comprehensive list of the Scion Knacks all done, and prettied up. However, I can’t seem to find a way to post it onto the forums here for all to download. If anyone has any ideas on how to do that, let me know. If not, send me your email addresses and I’ll email a copy to any who want it.

Log 3 Dad's Place is a mess part 2

On the way there I still was not sure how we were going to kill Julian, but as I don’t think we would normally have the ability to hurt spirits I figure my dad have that end covered. We just need to get there and kill him. We decided to just fly over so we could avoid the large army. We seen form the top of my dad’s building that Julian was camped near the river Styx. When we got closer we seen that there were several well armed cyclops around the command tent. With a bit of illusion and deception we got them to head to the front line of the war. This was seeming to be to easy this next fight was probably going to be hard. So I used an ability and made it so I could take more damage. At the Start of the fight Julian had the river styx over flow and tried to kill us with it. I though it was going to be a hard fight but I was not expecting this. Thanks to my wings I just flew up out of the water. As soon as we could all went for Julian. Conner charged forward and dealt a massive blow. It would have killed him out right if not for a backup that he had. Thats all right I thought it was a good recovery after the river thing that he did. The fight went on with all of us trying to kill him and him trying to kill us. For a bit I was thinking that he would be able to out last us as most of us couldn’t damage him. But are team work allowed us to over power him. After being hit by another strong blow by Conner and Ira (Conner being buffed by are new helper some friend of Ira’s) I jumped off of Conner’s sword and shot Julian through the heart.

With Julian dead my dad came out and stopped the rest of the army. It was cool to watch. When all was said and done my dad gave us a reward. Each of us got are own thing. I got my bow improved. Time to go home. It was interesting to see where my dad works and all but I don’t care to go back any time soon. However everything my dad gives comes with a price.

Irratble Ira

The longer I’m down here the more I feel like the world will never go back to the way it was. Every moment in this hell hole feels like an eternity of rage and anger welling up inside me. Hades sent us on some bitch quest to plug a hole in one of his walls and take down a cyclops forge that was causing him some issues. We had to pass by some judges, old scions of Hades, to get to the uncontrolled parts of the underworld. They were easy enough to satisfy as Conner spun tales of myth and legend, at least that is how it seemed even knowing that the stories he told were of our own deeds. I have an unrelenting nagging feeling that we spent more time wandering around than we bargained for. We had a would be guide offer to take us directly to our destination but his price was to high so we passed. As we continued on we passed a castle of Atlantian design. Needles to say I was careful to give it a wide birth, not wanting to get involved in anything Atlantian. Finally I grew weary of our timeless march and consulted the bones. I threw down some centaur bones from labyrinth and set them ablaze. I watched as they cracked and popped in the twisted heat of the fire until the fire consumed itself. The bones cracked one final time and as I studied them I could feel something come over me. The prophecy didn’t just come to my mind as I read the bones like I expected, instead it was so much more. I could feel the power of The Morigan flowing through me, more strongly than usual. I could hear her voice overshadowing my own as a prophecy came forth from my lips, bestowing knowledge to myself and my friends of equal parts what must be done and what is to come. A chill ran down my spine as I realized that we had to go back to the castle…and ask that fucker Julian for help.

Thinking about what happened next makes my skin crawl so I’ll just cut to the chase. Fuckhead Julian betrayed us, we managed to destroy the forge and snag a few weapons, but not before Julian’s personal army had the chance to gear up. Now they’re on there way to battle for control of the underworld. And it’s up to us to me…up to US to stop him!

Entry 2
It is one thing to get screwed over by your enemy, it’s another to be screwed over by your enemy after you killed him while he is screwing over one of your other enemies that is dead too. If it doesn’t make sense I understand, I am still a little pissed off about the whole thing anyways. A while ago when Ira and I first met up, we took out a useless git named Julian, a scion of Atlantis as it were. Well the bastard is down in Hades somehow and building an army. The two of us knew not to trust the skin full of shite but we hadn’t much of a choice. So after a wee dander through Hades that lasted the devil knows how long Ira had a prophecy that led us to the git’s castle. After negotiating as it were with the git we took off towards the tunnel to complete our part of the bargain with Hades. The trouble was that the forges were being controlled by Daniel and he had quite the few Cyclops on his side. Well the git used his army of ghost to take over the forges, he handed us Daniel, and then we were forced out, not much of a choice in all reality. Then, by holy Mary and Joseph, good Doc told us that he could light up like the sun itself and give us a chance to really give it to em. So, while the Doc lit up like BOB we nicked as many weapons as we could find and I blew the forge straight to hell. After blowing both ends of the tunnel and heading back to meet with Hades we were given Alyssa back. We were going to be as scarce as hen’s teeth after reaching an agreement of a trade for Daniel for Jonny when Hades decided that instead we would take out Julian, as his army was coming to join Hades for a pint, without an invitation. We will belt the git one more time and hand the hole to Hades and the bullocks with him.

Log 2 Dad's Place is a mess

Well we made a deal with dad, went better then I thought it would. So we went off to complete are part of the deal. After a bit of travel we came to 3 people sitting on a throne. These people were the judge’s to determine where the dead would go, look’s like a dull job. With a few stores we got through and started going down a road to a place we would much rather not be. But a deal is a deal. after a lot of wondering and some encounters with a dead person and some harpies. Ira managed to get us some hints on where to go. We went to a place where there was a castle made out of mist. It was controlled by an old enemy of Ira. We managed to negotiate and he told us where the forge was and took us there. It seemed to easy he had to be up to something. After getting in the forge I did some scouting and found out that there are 26 Cyclops, just a little more then we can deal with. This is where Ira’s old enemy stabbed us in the back. He used hes army to take out the Cyclops and the kicked us out. how ever one of a party is the scion of Apollo we went back in and he made light come out of hes body. This drove off the dead and we blew the place up. After that we went back and gave the person who was running the forge to Hades in exchange for are other friend but there where some complications. Hades wants us to take out the leadership of an army first or the usurper as he is now called. This guy is trying to take over my dads place. Grated I haven’t known the guy that long, ok at all. But this makes me made this guy is going to…..die. You know when I think about it i’m not to sure how to take down a dead guy. Will figure something out.

Ira's quiet reluctance

Honestly, since we got back from south America I’ve just been going through the motions. Katey is dead, along with the rest of the old crew. And as long as we’re being honest, I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this mission. I worked so hard to put them all in hell and now we’re down here trying to get them out. If Connor wasn’t like a brother to me there’s no way I’d be letting this happen. I know he loves her but she can’t be trusted. I’ve been temped to make a rescue attempt for my sweet Katey as well but truth be told she’d probably just belt me one and insist that she neither wanted nor needed my help. That’s just the way she is, prideful, don’t kneed anyone…at least thats what she wants you to think. Maybe I’ll do it anyway, prove to her once and for all that she doesn’t need to keep me at arms length. Of coarse I’d have to get my head out of my ass first, I’ve been all manner of outa sorts since we put everyone down here. Damn, my life has been nothin but one mess after another since the first time I stepped into the Lucky Clover, not that it was a thing o’ beauty before. Maybe some time down here in the underworld will do me some good, give me the chance to clear my head for a bit. Well I suppose we’re off then, to save Connor’s girl. Never did like her, but if it’s important to Connor then I’ll do it.
