Was there wisdom used in the making of your first virtual adventure, O Athena? One wonders.
For you, the goddess of wisdom, were reduced to a bikini-clad nymph after opening “The Door Which Shouldn’t Be Opened.” Surely you are wiser than that? Your weapons and armor broke off in the sky and now you’re forced to acquire them by… punching through dirt clods? But why do you have such armaments to begin with? The plants and animals of the earth make war with you, though you did nothing to anger them.
You must find and wield a breastplate, a helmet, and a sword, but you are no goddess of war. Your combat skills are comical; the boars have no trouble ramming themselves against your blade. You landed in a forest that appears as though it were created by a small child. The colors do not sit well with the eye, and the paths forward reveal little logic. And one hopes slaughtering boars and Trojans and flowers pleases you, because you won’t be doing much else until you find the centaur, Dante.
Yes, there are different colored armor pieces and weapons to discover in this tempestuous earth, but if that’s what’s holding your interest here, perhaps your wisdom abandoned you with your garments.
