First, that's not necessarily the official bio. Second, Feylund is home to legendary adaptations of mythological creatures (Sudema being the prime example).

I have no problem with mythological creatures being from Feylund. I'm just trying to figure out how a monster from Feylund inspired a myth on Earth.

And in case anyone is wondering I'm not taking this too seriously. I'm just having some fun speculating about magical beings from fictional universes.

No worries, McHotcakes. That post from GB followed a more serious debate than your question about Asterios's background. But Heroscape is a game, and not a simulation or a narrative, so there will often be inadequate answers to questions like yours. Which you already knew, I think, but I responded anyway.

I knew there probably wasn't a serious answer to my question. I was just curious if anyone had a theory.

It's like asking what happens to Optimus Prime's trailer when he transforms, or when does Batman find time to sleep? Obviously there is no real answer but its still fun to speculate.

That's what my original question was meant to do. I had no intention of bringing down the unit or anything, and I'm sorry if anyone took it that way.

Re: The Book of Asterios

Well, as the main author of Asterios' bio, this is what I can tell you :

Originally, Asterios was from Earth, at the time I wrote the bio (at that time, Asterios also had a power allowing to loot his horns ornaments once he died, hence the reference in the bio). The lore of Heroscape made us originates him from Feylund, and the sake of design simplicity made us drop the looting power.
The bio stayed like it was. We liked it this way.

Also, if a mythical being from Feylund can inspire Earth's myths (like Sudema, Asterios, ...), how can one be sure that Theseus is really a greek hero ? Perhaps he was from Feylund too, but was adopted by greeks that made him one of them when the myth arised on Earth. It is good for one's pride if the heroes have the same nationnality, right ? In the same way, we know for sure that Asterios is from Feylund (who with a sane mind would believe such a creature really existed on Earth, right ?), but the myth says that the minotaur is the (step-)son of Minos, King of Crete. Doesn't that prove that the myth is a distorded view of the reality ?

Does this argument convince you ?

Re: The Book of Asterios

One of my observations when people discuss History in games, movies and TV shows is the confusion with "actual" earth history and "fictional" earth history. There is nothing to say that there is a Theseus in fictional heroscape history. For example we know that Spartacus did not vanish from actual history to fight in some alien war.

Keep your histories (real and fictional) seperate and you will not have any issues.

Actually his death was never confirmed. For all we know he could have been recruited in an inter dimensional war.

I wouldn't put it like that. I believe you're perfectly free to "activate" an SA and not attack. It's just that typically that would have no effect. With this one, it does.

I'm phone-posting at the moment but check to see if the print link has the following string at the end: "&act=down." If so, delete it and try again.
