Villages and settlements spread over vast seashores and stony plains are full of both hostile and peaceful inhabitants. Some of them have interesting and exciting quests for you!

All your movements are being watched by immortal Olympians - Immortal but not impassive! They have an argument - who can be named the most powerful among them? So the Gods have decided that each of them must train one human hero. The God whose hero turns to be the strongest will be the winner! After you choose one of 3 classes for your character (magician, warrior, hunter) you should select your own God who becomes your patron. Divine tutors are different in bonuses, talents and capabilities, which they can give to you. Game style, quests and secret locations are also different for each character. Your hero must perform religious rites and learn rituals. Also you can find your rivals at special arenas during the game. Sometimes you can gather a group with other Heroes to pass through difficult quests. Numen will give you an opportunity to fight against dangerous enemies like Cerberus, Medusa Gorgone, Haron, Cyclop, centaurs, Nubians… You should be armed well enough to win! You can buy the best weapons at auctions.
