A Vaguely Familiar Halloween Treat

Posted by Gweilo on October 30, 2006

Does this look vaguely familiar? Warning: prolonged scrutiny may subliminally influence you to carve up a pumpkin for Halloween!

Zeus Heaven is pleased to announce that designer GLWizard has conjured up a new custom adventure for Poseidon. It is entitled “Vaguely Familiar”, and can be downloaded here.

Rumor has it that some aspects of this new adventure have a Halloween theme, so check out these tricks and treats from the playtesting.

“Vaguely Familiar” is rated at “Titan” difficulty, so it should provide a nice challenge for advanced players. It is the first installment in the “Common Threads” adventure series, in which a player’s patron Gods are linked together by something they have in common. It sounds like GLWizard has much more planned for us in the future!

Can You Launch a New Industrial Age?

Posted by Gweilo on October 25, 2006

Be prepared for conflicts among the Gods, as some will oppose the new Industrial Age.

Once again, Nightwolf has released another original custom adventure for Poseidon. His newest release is entitled “Industrial Age”, and it offers a player many different challenges. See for yourself in this selection of teaser screenshots from the playtesting.

In Nightwolf’s own words: “You’ve got all of the building necessities at hand – Marble, Black Marble, Orichalc, Copper Ore and Wood. But if you look further, you’ll see that you have nothing else… including food. Can you turn this into a ragingly rich city?”

“Industrial Age” contains 5 episodes, and is rated as a moderate difficulty challenge. It is now available for download here.

Expanded Oracle of Random Oddities

Posted by Gweilo on October 23, 2006

The Oracle on the Zeus Heaven homepage is no different from other ancient oracles – it spews out random oddities in an unpredictable fashion. Yet many players have honed their gaming skills by studying and applying these random oddities. Rumor has it that the Oracle may now reveal many new and interesting oddities. The Zeus game (and its expansion, Poseidon) continues to attract a strong fan base, and expanding the knowledge of the Oracle is a reward for their loyalty.

Who has bestowed this new knowledge to the Oracle? Some say the Gods themselves are responsible, but others say Nightwolf and Pecunia should be thanked.

So how many Random Oddities may now be revealed? Test your knowledge of the Oracle by participating in the trivia contest at this forum thread.
