Free God Rotation – 09/22/15
Every week sees a rotation of five Gods that players can play for free. Here are this week’s.
Aphrodite, Goddess of Beauty (Greek)
There are too few words to describe the radiance, the magnificence, the inequitable glory of Aphrodite, Goddess of Beauty. So wondrous is she to behold that one look can inspire tears, desire, jealousy, and love. Yet, beneath her flawless exterior resides a heart burdened with insecurity.
Bellona, Goddess of War (Roman)
Bellona, the Goddess of War, took no time to build temples or gather worshippers. She favors only those for whom war is life; for that is where she thrives – not on the steps of hallowed basilicas or in whispered prayers, but in the blood-soaked mud, among the breathless armored troops, in the roar of victory.
Arachne, the Weaver (Greek)
Once, a beautiful and talented weaver of cloth and fabric, a single prideful mistake made a monster of Arachne for all time. So wondrous and majestic were her tapestries, it was said the spinner must have been instructed by the patron Goddess of Weavers herself, Athena. To this comparison, Arachne proudly scoffed, claiming not even the Gods rivalled her talent at weaving.
Athena, Goddess of Wisdom (Greek)
In war, there are two kinds of soldiers: those that fight for blood, and those that fight for honor. These different warriors seek different Gods. Ares, God of War revels in the bloodletting, but his sister, Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, is patron to those who fight with dignity, and only when there is no other alternative.
Xbalanque, Hidden Jaguar Sun (Mayan)
As one of the Hero Twins, Xbalanque, and his brother Hunahpu, knew their lives would eventually force them to face the Lords of Death, chiefs of the Underworld who murdered their father, but first they would need to master the arts of hunting with blowguns and the violent ball game Pitz.
