Olympus

The celestial home of the gods, atop the highest peak of Mount Olympus.

 

This mighty citadel, built upon the raw stone of the Mount Olympus, was made as a place to rule over and discuss the affairs of the mortals far below.

The houses, thrones, tools and weapons of the gods, as well as the mighty gates and the many metal furnishings, were forged of gold, silver and orichalcum by the god of the smithy, Hephaestus. Black and white marble makes the pillars and floors, while strong grey stone makes the mighty walls.

The lowest level, circled by the mighty walls, broken only by the Gate of Olympus, contains the Olympic Stables and the Forge of Hephaestus.

As one goes up, one passes through streets, terraces and gardens that wind between the houses of the Gods, until one comes at last to the top, where the massive Olympic Tholos dominates the city, containing within it the Forum of the Gods in the lower level and Zeus' Throne Room in the upper.

It is from here that the Gods rule over the mortals below, and the rule of the gods is mighty indeed.

 

But there are some who say the time of the Gods is coming to an end...
