  9. Heracles was Greek, Hercules was the Roman version of the god. If i had to choose i would say Heracles for 2 reasons…first Hercules is not even Roman …they adapt him from Hercle (etruscan character*) and based his story on Greek Heracles and second im Greek so its only natural to me :wink:

thank you!

… Name in game Gilrael

  1. Prometheus, Cadmus, Achilles, Hades

  3. Who chained Prometheus to the rock varies between Zeus and Zeus’s servants, Force and Violence. Hercules frees him. *To be freed though, an immortal had to die for Prom. Chiron the centaur volunteered to die for him. and did. Hercules did the freeing though, and in some stories seems to have killed the centaur.

  5. Herc and the Argolic Gulf: His 2nd of the 12 labors was to slay the hydra. The hydra lived in Lerna, a region of springs on the Argolic Gulf.

  8. Herc syblings: Athena, Perseus and Helen. Also Dionysis. 

  9. Hercules or Heracles: At this point I guess its a matter of preference or the region where you live. Heracles is the original Greek version but Hercules (Roman adaptation) is much more common. Ill go with the given name as opposed to the Roman altered one.

Thanks,

Hi, my name in the game is alina-sama and here are my answers! 

  1. Prometheus, Achilles, Cadmus have innate resistence to fire, which makes them really powerful. 

  2. Hercules, Perseus, Atena and Helena are Zeus offspring.   (That dude had waaaay to much free time)

  3. Hercules set Prometheus free and Zeus chained him for stealing the olympic fire and giving it to humankind. (And when Hercules set him free, Zeus allowed it because it had beeen an honorable task worthy of “HIS” son…I like this guy less and less now.)

  4. Zeus and Atenea lived officialy on the Olympus, I bet they had a great view!

  5. Hercules killed the hydra in the Argolic Gulf. This as a part of the “twelve  jobs” which were near to impossible tasks that included conquer, killing and defeating places, beasts and monsters, which were supposed to be delivered to an Hera´s representative in order to pay for a crime that Hera herself had tricked him to commit. Each place had a powerfurful meaning to Hera and/or were pressumed portals to another world. And all of the tales are spreaded among different texts but many of them are part of an epic poem now lost.

  6.  Zeus was Dionisius father. (Another one!) 

  7. Facebook, Twitter and Google+ .

  8. Atena and Helena are his sisters from his inmortal father side (Zeus)

  9. Both names refer to the same character but Heracles is the name used in the greek mithology while Hercules is the name used in the roman mithology. 

That´s all! Hope it goes well. And I just wanna say, I really enjoy the game, been playing for months and I´m far from being bored. Keep the awesome work and thanks for the Alliance Wars cause they rock!

From Mexico, with fan love =)

1 Which Hero(es) have an innate resistance to fire?
Promotheus and Cadmus

2 Which playable characters in Olympus Rising are descendants of other playable characters according to Greek mythology? 
Athena, Helen of Troy, Perseus, and Hercules are all descended from Zeus - although Helen of Troy had once been thought to be the daughter of King Tyndareus.

 

3 Which playable character really unleashed Prometheus, and which chained him?

Heracles unchained Prometheus after Zeus had chained him in the underworld with an eagle eating out his liver every day as punishment for giving fire back to the humans after Zeus had taken fire from man in his rage over not getting the choicest bits of meat but being tricked by Prometheus into giving them to the humans. Man, that was a terrible sentence. My English teacher from 5th grade would kill me if she saw that sentence…

4 Which of the playable characters actually lived on Mount Olympus according to Greek Myth?

Zeus and Athena - after all, only the gods lived on Mount Olympus, except for Hades as he was sent off to rule the underworld. Interestingly enough, Poseidon was not sent off to rule the seas but was permitted to stay on Mount Olympus. Perhaps nobody liked Hades’ company?

5 How do Hercules (or Heracles) and the Argolic Gulf relates to Greek Mythology?

Heracles killed the Hydra here as the second of his 10 labors - which became 12 as he failed 2 of them: killing the hydra (he had the help of his nephew), and cleaning the Augean stables in a day (he accepted pay).

6 Which playable character had a relationship with the God of our Wisdom producing building?

Dionysos was married to Ariadne. Dionysos being the wisdom-producing god in this game is ironic to me as he was god of wine and ritual madness - although I must admit that he was the god of the theatre. Really, the goddess of wisdom is Athena.

7 On which social media platforms can you find an official Olympus Rising channel?

Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter - and do the forums count as social?

8 Which playable characters in Olympus Rising are siblings of Hercules?

Technically, Athena, Helen of Troy, and Perseus are all born of the same father - except for Athena, who wasn’t really born - and that she isn’t a human either. Can a god be a sibling of a man?

9 Hercules or Heracles? Why?

Heracles is correct, as that is his Greek name and all the rest of the characters have their Greek names instead of their Roman counterparts. However, the Roman version of Hercules is the popularized version, so that is what appears in the game. Frankly though when I started the game I was surprised to see him called Hercules.

Texas Pine -> Aly edit for the name  

  1. Prometheus, Achilles, Hades, Cadmus. 

  2. Hercules, Perseus, Helen, Athena- children of Zeus

Ariadne-granddaughter of Zeus

Achilles - great grandson of Zeus

Jason, Cadmus, Odysseus- great great grandsons of Zeus.

  1.  Zeus chained Prometheus and Hercules freed him.

  2.  Zeus and Athena were two of the twelve Olympians who lived on Mount Olympus. Hades preferred to stay in the underworld. Hercules, Helen, and Ariadne (as Dionysus’s wife) were all elevated to Olympus in some versions of the myths.

  3. The Argolic Gulf is the location of the Lenarean swamp- the lair of the Hydra- it is where Hercules performed the second of his 12 labors.

  4.  Ariadne was married to Dionysus.

  5.  Twitter, Facebook.

  6. Athena, Perseus, Helen.

  7. Heracles, because he was a Greek not a Roman. I also like that he was named  “glory of Hera” to try to appease the goddess after Zeus’s affair with his mother- didn’t work too well.
