Welcome to Gaia! ::

You are greeted by the sounds of crashing waves and wild neighing as you approach the ocean shore. The salty smell of the sea invades your nostrils as you break the crest of the hill and a cool ocean breeze ripples your clothing. As you take in the view, several things capture your attention.

First of all, there is music in the air. A sweet melody that the makes one who hears it believe at first that they are imagining it, when in reality, the mellow sound is originating from a giant clam shell, which is sitting in the sea. You notice a windy path, made of sand, that cuts through the sea straight to it. You want to walk into it, to listen to the sweet music, but you restrain yourself, and look closer at the odd shell.

From your view on the hill, you can see that the sand path turns into an oyster shell staircase that descends into the bottom of the giant shell. A rippling of water joins the heavenly chorus as a fish head, perched at the top of the shell, releases a steady stream of brilliant blue sea water into a pool below. The water gives you a tranquil feeling; like there is not a care in the world.

Behind the shell is an even odder sight. A life-sized sand castle is baking in the sun, complete with a draw bridge that is lowered to an entrance in the shell, several brightly colored blue flags bearing a golden trident, and four towers that are eye level with you. You start to walk forward towards this magical sight, but you stop when you hear whinnies to your right and left.

Looking around, you discover that where the sand of the sea ends, a field begins, and stretches up the hill and as far as the eye can see. In these fields are dozens of groups of wild horses, tossing their manes about and grazing on the green grass. They don't seemed bothered by you, and even seem willing be ridden upon. As you walk forward to stroke the blinding white mane of closest one, you stop to read a wooden sign you have just noticed jutting out of the ground.

“Welcome, landlubbers! Welcome to The Room by the Sea!”

Lost in a wave of confusion? Maybe you missed something! Check here every now and then for what happened recently.



Day 1
The party opened without a hitch, and guests arrived from near and far to experience the Room of the Sea. However, after a couple of hours, the hype started to die down a little. As some of the guests began to leave, one had the idea to start a beach volleyball game. The hosts got interested, and turned it into the most epic volleyball game ever seen, inviting the other Gods to join in. Zeus and Hestia arrived from Mount Olympus to help out with the game. Unleashing their awesome super powers and volleyball skills, the Gods were undoubtedly victorious.

However, Poseidon admired his trident more than his teammates, and even more than his wife, Amphirite, which put her in a bad mood. She switched sides, and after battling it out volleyball style, Poseidon accidentally hit his wife in the face, causing her to cry, and flee the scene.

Confiding in Delphin, Amphirite told her that she was coming up with a plan to seek revenge on Poseidon for loving his trident more than even his own wife. What will happen? Only time will tell, at this year's Room by the Sea.



Day 2
Day two in the Room by the Sea was calm until the end, where a crisis began. Amphirite, angered at her husband for his love of his trident, accidentally gave it to Eris! Using it's powers, he turned the husband and wife of the sea in mortals, and hid the trident away! As an added ingredient to the mixture of trouble that is being brewed up, Amphirite is flirting with other guests, to give Poseidon a taste of his own medicine! Will this conflict be resolved? Stay tuned tomorrow for the stunning conclusion!


Day 3
No major plot events have occured yet.

User Image Good try, inferiors, you thought you had me found
But your attempt was fruitless, you'll never get me bound
Now I'm off to explore gaia, a pitiful seeming mound.
While I doubt that the apple falls far from the tree
I'll go hide in a charity and see if I can steal a fee
