Each stage requires a different method ot move forward:


Move off of start by doing something noteworthy in class. Win the Kahoot!, be brilliant, win at Hermaphroditos, or do something else and make your claim that you have answered that call!

Just having a Blue Chosen One Star will automatically allow you to leave this spot (and you get to keep the star!)

Making it through the Maze of Theseus will get you past this level.

The Call to Adventure

You have been called, but going on an adventure is not cheap. Once you have earned 3 drachmas, turn them in and move on to the next stage!

Making it through the Maze of Theseus will also get you past this level.

Refusal of the Call

Heroes often refuse the call to adventure. Bilbo was happy at home. Spider-Man was selfish and didn't care about others. Luke Skywalker was all talk and no action. Something must happen. Bilbo was tricked by Gandalf. Spider-Man's Uncle Ben died due to Spider-Man's selfish behavior. Luke's uncle and aunt are killed by stomtroopers (a lot of uncles die to make a hero...). So you need to find your mentor. You need to find the ones who will inspire you to greatness. You will need . . . signatures!

Get this paper either from Lord Alford or print it out. Get the required signatures and turn it in to move forward!


Making it through the Maze of Theseus will also get you past this level.

Supernatural Aid

Heroes are often given assistance. In Star Wars Ben Kenobi gives Luke the lightsaber and comes back as a ghost to tell him how to win. In Lord of the Rings, not only does Frodo have Gandalf to bail him out of trouble using magic, but he also has a magic sword and magical armor given to him by Bilbo.

You are going to research and find supernatural aid (objects or assistance) given to mythological heroes (from any culture) and some more from modern day movies or books. Then you will let me know what supernatural aid you wish you had for your adventure.


Lazy and do not want to do the research? Well, that's not very heroic, but you can turn in a Blue Chosen One Star to bypass this square if you have one. Making it through the Maze of Theseus will also get you past this level.

Crossing the First Threshold

The hero must leave his/her/its comfort zone. This can be challenging for the hero as he/she/it is just getting started. Bilbo joins the dwarves and leaves the Shire. Luke Skywalker boards the Millennium Falcon and leaves Tattooine. Neo exits the Matrix. Stitch crash lands on earth. Peter Parker shows up in public dressed as Spider-Man. Dorothy lands in Oz.

Our first threshold will be to stop relying on classmates, and to openly delcare war on them. Once you do this, you will have crossed out of freindly territory and now have made all your enemy. Here you must wait until someone else comes to this space. In order to leave, you must defeat this person in a game of Amazons or in a game of viking chess (if we are in the Norse unit yet).

If you are on this spot and you get challenged, you MUST defend yourself by playing. Throwing a game will get you moved to FALLEN HERO. Not a good game player? After three tries, you also have the option of paying 5 drachmas to leave this space.

Making it through the Maze of Theseus will also get you past this level.

The Belly of the Whale

The hero is now fully submerged into the realm of darkness. Bilbo is in Mirkwood. Luke Skywalker is in the Death Star.


Making it through the Maze of Theseus will also get you past this level.

The Road of Trials

Must complete 8 of these trials:

    1. Something
    2. Something else
    3. Something different from the first two
    4. Something not entirely unlike the previous three
    5. A thing
    6. Make Ambrosia and Nectar.
    7. Complete the Bible and Mythology chart
    8. Bring in a penny with a date of 1970.
    9. Complete this Harry Potter/Mythical Allusion chart
    10. Beat Mr. Alford in a game of Amazons
    11. Beat Mr. Alford in a game of Viking Chess
    12. Turn in THREE Drachma

    Making it through the Maze of Theseus will also get you past this level. will count as completing 3 of these tasks(as long as you haven't already used that to get past a previous level).

    Turning in a Chosen One Star will count as three of these tasks.

The Meeting with the Goddess


Atonement with the Father

You are at the mercy of a parent or guardian here. You must get an Antonement sheet from me, then take it to your parent or guardian. They will decide what your task is and then sign it when they are satisfied.

Magic Flight


Crossing of the Return Threshold
