FC: The Quest for the Gorgon's Head | Josh Goyke Sean Cimino

1: Years and years ago, a miracle came from the gods. Danae, The daughter of king Acrisius, received a son from the gods one day. His name was Perseus, and he was said to be the one to kill Acrisius. | Acrisius discovered Perseus and sent him and Danae off in a chest. | They were found by Dictys, and Polydectes fell in love with Danae.

2: Polydectes, however, did not want Perseus, so he sent him to the Gorgons to retrieve a Gorgon's head. | Polydectes invited all his royal friends to a wedding celebration, and all but Perseus had a wedding gift. | Perseus wanted to obtain Medusa's head for the celebration, and the oracle told him to go to the "land where men eat acorns." | Hermes came in to help Perseus, to fill in the specifics about the adventure.

3: Perseus needed possession of the Nymphs of North, and needed to visit the Grey Women in order to obtain it. | Perseus then went to the Grey Women, waited for them to change the one eye that they share, and grabbed it from them, demanding information.

4: Hermes supplied Perseus with the sword that wouldn't break over Gorgon scales. Athena then gave him her shield to use as a mirror against Medusa, since sight of her turns you to stone. | Hermes showed Perseus the way to the country of Hpyerboreans because you couldn't get there by land or ship. | Perseus finally received a Magic wallet that fits anything in it, winged sandals, and an invisibility cap from Hermes. | Perseus began his adventure for the Gorgon's head when he found them sleeping on their island.

5: Athena poionted Medusa out to Perseus and guided his sword to cut Medusa's neck and get her head in the wallet.

6: The other two immortal Gorgons then awoke, and tried to chase Perseus, but could not because of his invisible cap and his flying sandals. | On the way home, Perseus found the beautiful Andromeda, who had a punishment of being sacrificed to a sea serpent.

7: Perseus arrived at the perfect time to save Andromeda, and free her from the chains and the sea serpent. | After falling in love with her beauty, Perseus went back to Andromeda's parents and asked for her hand in marriage. | Finally, both went back to Polydectes, but Denae and Dictys were no where to be found. | Perseus then went to the King's palace, pulled out Medusa's head, and turned everyone at the celebration to stone.

8: Dictys was made to be the king of the island. Perseus and Andromeda then went to talk terms with Acrisius. | In Argos, Acrisius had been driven away, but no one could find him. However, the King of Larissa in north was holding an athletic contest, where Perseus accidentally threw a discus into the crowd of people, killing Acrisius on impact. | Now that everything had been resolved and settled, Perseus gave Medusa's head to Athena, who put it on her shield. | Perseus and Andromeda, now married, lived very happily for years to come, with their new child Electryon.
