-A demigod, also a term meaning

An interesting campaign on structures and ideas. A compelling war on titles and positions.
In one way a mere man or woman cannot be heroic without their rank of Demigod, half-man half-god. Yet throughout history friendship, of various degrees, have been the catalyst for the exploits of "heroes" and councils of friends have birthed Creatures of Frankenstein and journeys through Wonderland, just to give a couple of examples.

I will not hope for a victory or defeat in this particular quest, for my body is the prize, I do hope that the actual victory here is the promotion of friendship and love in at least one person that will produce a thing bigger than the individuals involved.

Consider the best example of the combination of these ideals, http://www.ancienttexts.org/library/mesopotamian/gilgamesh/. Fitting that the original epic adventure should find its way so beautiful onto this chronicling of epic adventures.
