  1. Re: Percy Jackson and the Olympians Artemis Fowl is a 12 year old master criminal in a fantasy setting. He comes up with these big plans to score big. My local expert says they are pretty good. Not as good as Percy or Alcatraz, but a solid second tier. I've not read them yet, but he has the first two, so I will give them a try.
  2. Re: Percy Jackson and the Olympians the premise is that the Greek mythos is alive and well in the current world. As Western civilization has moved west, so has the gods. Currently, Mount Olympus is above the Empire State Building. The main characters are all half-blood children of the gods. Percy Jackson is the son of Posiedon, the only currently surviving decendent of one of the big three (Zeus, Posiedon, Hades). The big three made a pact after WW II not to breed with humans, as those children tend to cause a great deal of mischief. That pact has been broken twice since then, once by Zeus and once by Posiedon. The world is full of monsters, but because of a magical mist, mundanes do not realize it. Instead, they see something that is easier for the minds to accept. Each novel, Percy is assigned a quest. In the first, he has to travel to Hades to recover Zeus' most prized lighnting javelin, which Zeus believes Percy has stolen and is about to go to war with Posiedon over. Percy travels there with his friends, Grady the Saytr and Annabelle, a daughter of Ares.
  3. I'm thinking of introducing my girlfriends 12 year old son to the wonders of the Hero Game System. He is a big fan of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, which I think is just prime for Heros (Gyro Hero anyone?) Anyone have any advice for campaign limits or other bits of wisdom? And you have not read this series, I strongly recommend it. Very enjoyable, even for an ol' curmugdeon like me.
