Greek Battle Scenario #1-Medusa!
Medusa is sent to attack both you and your partner. The hero who kills Medusa wins the round!
“The Gorgon Medusa was a monstrous, yet mortal creature that had the power to turn anyone who looked at her into stone. Medusa and two sisters of hers, Stheno and Evryale, were Gorgons, with frightful eyes, brass hands and living snakes on their head instead of hair. Medusa was the only Gorgon who was mortal, however she was more powerful than her sisters.”


Greek Battle Scenario #2- Peeved Poseidon
Poseidon has been angered; he has sent torrential rains and flooding. To stop the destruction he demands a battle of heroes. The battle takes place on the Athenian Acropolis.






Greek Battle Scenario #3-The Underworld
As heroes you have found yourself imprisoned in the Underworld by Hades. Your constant begging to be released has been granted on one condition…a battle to the death. The winner is free to return to their life.
“The underworld is not particularly unpleasant. It is rather like a miserable dream, full of shadows, without sunlight or hope. A joyless place where the dead slowly fade into nothingness.
Geographically, the underworld is surrounded by a series of rivers: The Acheron (river of woe), The Cocytus (river of lamentation), The Phlegethon (river of fire), The Styx (river of unbreakable oath by which the gods swear), and The Lethe (river of forgetfulness). Once across the rivers an adamantine gate, guarded by Cerberus, forms the entrance to the kingdom. Deep within the kingdom is Hades vast palace, complete with many guests.
Upon death a soul is lead by Hermes to the entrance of the underworld and the ferry across the Acheron. There is a single ferry run by Charon to take the souls across the river. Only those who can pay the fare, with coins placed on their lips when buried, receive passage. The rest are trapped between two worlds. The souls then enter through the gates. Cerberus will allow all to enter but, none to leave.”

Round 2
Directions: Please read the following scenarios and then “BATTLE”! On your own scorecard, record whom you played and the winner of each the battle. At the end of round two the class will be divided into two groups and each group will choose a hero to represent them in the final battle.

Greek Battle Scenario #4-Naughty Goddesses
The goddesses Athena and Aphrodite are fighting! They have decided to settle the argument by championing a battle between heroes. The hero who wins for his goddess will forever own her gratitude for it will mean that she won the argument. As part of the goddess’s agreement each hero may ask for a power from his goddess. Choose wisely!  You will need to decide who will represent each goddess.
Athena -“Athena is the Greek virgin goddess of reason, intelligent activity, arts and literature. Athena is the daughter of Zeus. She sprang full- grown in armor from his forehead, thus has no mother. She is fierce and brave in battle but, only wars to defend the state and home from outside enemies. She is the goddess of the city, handicrafts, and agriculture. She invented the bridle, which permitted man to tame horses, the trumpet, the flute, the pot, the rake, the plow, the yoke, the ship, and the chariot. She is the embodiment of wisdom, reason, and purity. She was Zeus's favorite child and was allowed to use his weapons including his thunderbolt. Her favorite city is Athens. Her tree is the olive. The owl is her bird. She is a virgin goddess.”
Aphrodite -“Aphrodite is the goddess of love, desire and beauty. In addition to her natural gifts she has a magical girdle that compels anyone she wishes to desire her. She is the wife of Hephaestus. The myrtle is her tree. The dove, the swan, and the sparrow are her birds. Her favorite lover is the god of war, Ares. She represented sex, affection, and the attraction that binds people together.”

Greek Battle Scenario #5- Sun v. Moon
Directions: Please read the following scenario and then “BATTLE”! On your own scorecard, record whom you played and the winner of the battle.
