here is my proposal how to make a snowman “olympus rising style”:
1.) wait until there is fresh fallen snow and the weather is not too cold so the snow perfectly sticks together. don’t panic: “winter is coming”
2.) it is always more fun together to make a snowman, so i don’t want a single hero/unit to have to do it alone.
3.) since it is winter and cold (but not too cold) i would suggest to choose the following “winter setup”:
odysseus with units spearman, siren, cyclops and trebuchet. everyone is kind of naturally prepared for winter. odysseus is also a kind of trickster hero, and this is also perfect for what we want to do ?.. for the powers i suggest asclepius, okeanos and bia. if you think there is enough snow outside and you might need a warm place, chose talos instead of okeanos.
4.) start your mission and have a wonderful walk through the winter wonderland. you can also sing madlens song if you want to. ?
5.) when you have reached the bridge, kindly ask sirens and spearmen to start rolling snowballs until they grow bigger and bigger. hand them over to the cyclops to make them of proper sizes. odysseus heals frozen hands if necessary or supports your troops with snow from okeanos if needed. yes, making snowman is the fun kind of snow shoveling ?
6.) all help together to lift all the snow balls into the trebuchets.
7.) now comes the tricky part: don’t move too close to the gate as you do not want the n.a.s.t.y, b.a.d-a.s.s. perseus immortal gatekeeper (that you have carefully chosen before as kind of revenge) become alive, but he should be within reach for the trebuchets. lets assume this is possible or clever odysseus will have an idea how to do this ?
8.) “fire them off, fire them off, fire them off !!!”
9.) make a picture/screenshot of your perfect snowman-gatekeeper and run before perseus gets you!! (if he comes alive from attacking)
10.) post picture here in the forum (of course not to humiliate the immortal one ?) but for fun and to win a price for this event. ?
