Well as the last one to vote, I can't really see me changing much here. I haven't really got much of a say in this, so its going to be for his inactivity. I haven't seen O'Mally here for a week? so a 1 day ban doesn't really explain it all...

Day 4: Enter Calchus

dawh sat by the ocean on a large flattened boulder. He was idly skipping pebbles across the water's surface when he sensed the presence of a fellow God behind him. It was Hera. Hera took a dignified stance behind dawh, never actually looking at him. As a matter of fact, dawh didn't hazard a glance in her direction either. He simply continued to toss the randomly strewn pebbles. "What news Hera? I know you are not here to take my life... if you even could that is." "Hah! Let it be known to you and the world that I indeed could if only Zeus had not forbade my interference with others from Olympus. And why would I want your life dawh? Why indeed? I think you know. Yes. You know all too well..." "So then why do I get the pleasure of your company? Please enlighten me Hera for I grow weary of this conversation." "How it pains me to deliver you good news... " dawh twisted his head around to see Hera staring off into the deep water. Was she looking out for Poseidon? Maybe. But no matter. dawh's thoughts stopped then.

A shivering man in a dark cowl emerged from behind Hera. "You have successfully satisfied Olympus' condition today. You may now use this prophet's power, albeit as random as it is, it will certainly come into usefulness sooner or later. Now, I'll take my leave for I fear I can't hold back my anger any longer. Farewell dawh." "Hmm. You as well Hera. And thank you for the news." Both ended the conversation in half sarcasm and half truth to their words. dawh rose from his lounging position and walked over to Calchus who simply stood in awe of the God, cowering and looking down at the ground. dawh then clasped Calchus on the shoulder and whispered: "Forget your worries friend. We have much to talk about."

Me too ;) . And just to be clearer about the Day post since there were some questions: basically dawh was a God and therefore not able to be sacrificed. And the Achaeans fulfilled the recruitment criteria for Calchus. So now Calchus has sided with the Achaeans.

As for what the recruitment criteria was in the past and what it was when Calchus got recruited, I'll post those requirements when the game is over.

Don't fear mighty Trojans! Today's events are not a disaster. They are the opposite. What happened today will unite us as Trojans and allow us once and for all to rid our shores of those filthy Greeks!

Paris and Agenor, we need you tonight! Paris please choose to protect PG! That is crucial! Agenor we need you to to keep a watchful eye on me.

Stay brave in battle Trojans and we'll make it through the Night!

Just keeping everyone in the loop: the night has been delayed because there have several back and forths with actions and whatnot that needed answers. I just need one more PM and the Night will be finalized. B))

Night 5: Heavy Violence and Wicked Twists

Diomedes took in every word from the wise old Nestor. The warrior thanked the old man and departed from Nestor's chambers. Nestor sat back for a moment wishing he still had his youth. That he could enter the fray with the same vigilance and power he once called his own. But alas, time had taken its toll on the experienced warrior. Nevertheless, he rose, drew his sword and vowed to fight until his dying breath. He couldn't help but notice though, that Diomedes was already 30 paces ahead of him cutting down Trojan after Trojan with a renewed fighting spirit.

***

Odysseus was careful in his actions. Unbelievably to him, the coward Paris was actually in his sights. He would not waste this opportunity. "Paris!" Odysseus yelled at the fragile young prince. Paris paused his descent down to the beach and looked Odysseus right in the eyes. "Ha! You think I fear you?! Perhaps I'm no match for you in a duel, but I've escaped more sticky situations than you could possibly endure." Somehow I doubt that, Odysseus muttered to himself. Nonetheless, he charged Paris, but the Prince was surprisingly agile and he was able to unleash his arrows at a lightning pace almost rivaling the skill of Apollo. Odysseus was forced to take cover, but he took solace knowing that his endurance would prove superior.

***

Brandonb knew he was in over his head. He heard the thunderous crashes coming from up the hills. It was the Mankiller Hector to be sure. He knew he would stand almost no chance against such a foe. Almost immediately after the thought, Hector exploded several Achaean soldiers to his right and sent them tumbling away, all almost certainly dead from the God-like blow. He readied his spear and prepared to launch it at his next target: Bb.

Odysseus, still under cover from Paris' arrows looked Bb's way and saw Hector taking aim. He quickly released a tied rope that was keeping a mountain of logs in place. Having set the trap up in the dark of night whilst no others were around, the pile was overlooked by all who approached it during tonight's battle. The logs careened toward Hector who was forced to leap them and dodge one way and then the other. He survived the gauntlet, but when he regained his composure and looked for his former target, Bb had used the precious time to escape. This sent Hector into a murderous rage and he slew the six Achaeans that had advanced into his blindspot during the delay tactic with one fell swoop of his fabled spear. He stabbed the spear into the ground with all the men still attached and let out a fierce battlecry. Bb covered his ears from his hiding spot beneath a tarp covered in brush and grass only ten paces from the Mankiller. Relief filled Bb as he attentively listened to the pounding footsteps quiet as Hector sought out new prey.

unreality stood watch outside Troy's castle, without fear, for Aphrodite stood by his side, ready to whisk him away at the hint of danger. "Oh no!" she screamed. "What is it Goddess?" unreality looked to her with concern. "My Paris! My beloved Paris! He's in mortal danger from that foul Odysseus! I must go! I must save my beauty!" "Wai.. Wait! Wait! ...Damnit! What about me. To Hades with that lanky, coward Paris and all... ugh!" unreality was so busy being angry, he had not even bothered to notice Diomedes' approach. unreality was pierced clean through the chest with his spear. "But... no... way... you... you will soon face my vengeance!" "Tell me please, how you intend to exact vengeance without a head?" unreality reached for his sword despite his wound, but Diomedes was ready and loosed his sword from beneath his shield. He blocked unreality's sword with shield and then lopped his head right off in a deft circular swinging motion. unreality had only blood left for his mouth to spew. No more words. Diomedes watched his prey die and then jaunted across the fields to find another group of Trojans ripe for killing.

***

Paris was out of arrows, quiver emptied. Foolishly he spent them all without ever a clean shot at Odysseus. He screamed for JS who appeared almost within the instant. Odysseus raised his sword to end Paris' life, but JS blocked it. All the warriors seemed to stop fighting in order to watch this pivotal duel. Paris fled for safety leaving his savior JS to die as a martyr. Paris cared not for the man, only his own life. Aphrodite found him, swooped down plucking him up and returning to the Trojan Palace. Odysseus called after him: "You coward! Get back here and face your demise!" "HAHA! That's not how I role...play! Later, fools!" Paris comforted himself in Aphrodite's arms as she smoothed his hair and landed just outside his bedroom window to lay the young prince to bed. Meanwhile back on the battlefield JS and Odysseus went at it like madmen. Clang! Clang! Their swords were near breaking with each clash. Then Odysseus got the upper hand and sent JS onto his back with a brutal blow to the face with the side of his shield. Odysseus leaped onto JS and prepared to finish him off with a final blow when Agenor entered the stage and threw Odysseus off of JS. JS retreated, appalled at his defeat. Odysseus and Agenor stared each other down, but Odysseus did not lack the discipline to retreat when he was out of stamina. Both sides went their separate ways. Agenor spat on the ground in Odysseus' direction. "You'll wish you hadn't done that." Odysseus said aloud without ever looking back.

***

The Achaeans returned to their ships before the dawn only to find GC completely paralyzed. He was sitting on the bow of one of the ships as if he was in another world or daydreaming for that matter. Odysseus shook him to his senses. "What is it GC? What has gotten into you?!" "So beautiful... more beautiful than I could ever have imagined. The lady Helen Odysseus. I'll never forget that face for as long as I live." Odysseus shook his head and looked back up to the Trojan Castle. He suddenly became aware of Calchus' presence to his left. The old man in the cowl simply tugged on his hood and wandered away. "Hector fights bravely, I dare say. So let us begin fresh this day. Wine, water, food, they have the reserve, but an utter defeat they surely deserve." Odysseus' brain began to hurt from the constant oddities of the night. He permitted himself a brief respite and a nap and fell to sleep as his head touched down.
