I simply LOVE the fact someone just stepped up and took over this thread without an admin. The cats away, so the mice will play. LOVE IT.
And thank you for picking a topic we'll all enjoy whether we participate or not.
Now I'm gonna go watch the Harryhausen movie of the same name. That movie kicks ass.

Pirithous' Battle with the Centaurs
Pirithous was the king of Lapiths, and the son of Zeus. Pirithous and his frind Theseus were known in legend as "the strongest men that Earth has bred, the strongest men against the strongest enemies, a savage mountain-dwelling tribe whom they utterly destroyed." Among the guests at Pirithous's wedding to Hippodamia were the centaurs, who, after havig too much to drink attempted to carry the women away. Fighting ensued and the Lapiths defeated the centaurs.

Hey, you only opened this thread yesterday. Give it some time, people have to find it. I haven't checked the other thread, but is there a link to this one in it?
Anyways, i drew a gayish greekish dude in my sb i drag around everywhere, but since i was at a book convention all day and didn't have any time to doodle around and then i was too beat to think of any jason.... i need more time.
So, i hope to post something later this week, as soon as i've figured out what the argonouts are again and what i'm supposed to do with them. Was Jason the same guy who got the goatskin? Anyway, thanks for giving me a good excuse to read myths again.
Thumbs up for the initiative btw. Keep at it, cos i'm too lazy.

"no one seems interested"
BAH! Maybe if you're going to do the CHOW, you could actually post the thread in the the CHOW area so people know that it exists. This is the challenge arena, not the community activities. For some people the challenge arena is like cage-fighting, and the community activities is like playing checkers.
no one is going to go to a cage-fight to play checkers.
the community activities needs mod-powers to post or whatever sooo..uhm find a mod?

Orpheus from The Argonauts.
The Argonautic expedition
Despite Orpheus's Thracian origin, he joined the expedition of the Argonauts. Centaur Chiron had warned Argonaut leader Jason that only with the aid of Orpheus would they be able to navigate past the Sirens unscathed. The Sirens lived on three small, rocky islands called Sirenum scopuli and played irresistibly beautiful songs that enticed sailors and their ships to the islands' craggy shoals. Once shipwrecked on the rocks, the sailors became supper for the Sirens. However, when Orpheus heard the Sirens, he drew his lyre and played music more beautifully than that of the Sirens, thus drowning out their alluring but deadly song.
