The Theme:
The Tone:
Informative, while we didn't have an actual story about the Gods, our section broke down how the gods acted and were seen. Also how they ranked on Olympus.
Our "story" claimed that the Greeks believed the Gods to be one giant (incestuous/asexual) family. They started from one god and gradually bloomed from there into what they are today. An Unstable Family.
BAM!
You've Been Olympified...
See ya Gods and Goddesses!
