Hephaestus' Forged Letters

FAQ (fatuously answered questions)

I was just on my way out of here, when I noticed that there were some quick questions for me, so here's a little postscript....

Did Hephaestus and Aphrodite come into the game at the same time as a coincidence?
As far as I know! As I'm sure a lot of players may do, I had my "if I were an OM, which god would I be" worked out long before I ever seriously considered applying for the job. You see a lot of New Agey veneration of various earth and nature gods (sorry Gaea!) but not a lot of love for those hard-working gods who, if real, would be responsible for all the comforts we take for granted. So let's hear it for Hephaestus, God of Gadgetry, Hermes, God of Telecoms and the Internet, and of course Prometheus, who gave us fire, and started us off on the long road to the techological society we live in today.

As such, Heph certainly wasn't suggested to me, I'm pretty certain Aph didn't know what my pick was going to be when she picked, so unless she says different, it's all a sparkly coinkydink!

Do we blame (your) pegleg on Zeus or Hera?
Actually, that one's all down to Artemis.

If we could build a temple anywhere on any ocean to host rituals and sacrifices in your name, where would you want to put it?
Hard to say. I wouldn't like to get cornered into "mi favirt iland iz." I suppose the obvious pick is Hephastus Forge, isn't it? Cochineal is said to be a volcano crater, so that'd be another option. Havoc and Diastrophe are also suitably volcanic. Blackthorpe on Sage looks a bit like a volcano crater. Immokalee looks about ready to erupt too...

What should be sacrificed there? Would you require a special dance or song or...something?
The worship of Hephaestus should involve the messing about with cool gadgets, playing video games, and crafting stuff. So pretty much continue on as you are.

Mortals say "oh my god".  What do gods say?
Nothing, we just go straight for the banstick.

I once saw, advertised for sale, organic sand. If there's a word that's been completely stripped of all rational meaning, it's "organic."

Aye, but have you ever tried to eat anything inorganic? Some fast food might qualify. (I agree. That's a ridiculous use of the word "organic".)

Yeah, I ate a whole bunch of inorganic stuff as a kid. Including sand.
