“You need to have more confidence in yourself, Patroclus. I love you; for you.” He pulls away then, his eyes protective in a way that sets my heart aflame. “Was it my mother again? Do not listen to her. She does not know my heart, only my destiny.”
There were few things Patroclus would say no to when it came to Achilles. When Achilles asked him not to take a summer class, he agreed because Achilles made a convincing point by merely breathing. When Achilles asked him to go on a road trip with him to Phthia so they could spend a week at the beach, how was Patroclus supposed to say no? The answer to that was that there was no way for him to say no because the whole idea had more upsides than downsides.
“Now imagine that you, the strongest man you have ever heard legend of, sent Patroclus – who did not fight or quarrel or rage – into a battle. Imagine that you, who can kill a dozen of Troy’s strongest in a single battle, had one person to protect of any value, and you sent them to die. Over nothing real. Can you imagine?”
Automedon shakes his head. “I am sorry, Achilles. He was so brave-”
“If this was you, who would you be most angry at?”
Even though the mounts currently make me ill, I am still very excited for the possibilities of future mounts when they fix everything. Even jus tlooking at some things in game could be cool mounts like for instance:
even a flying mount
So many fun things to ride! I love it. I can’t wait to see what they come up with.
I was really inspired by @marq-de-laf’s post about Lafayette’s life mask. So I found George Washington’s life mask and ran it through an emoting app just to see what he would have looked like when smiling, cause you know why not?
Managed to unlock this mount earlier today after taking the story a little slowly and just… I don’t think I could be happier with a mount.
Not only is it amazing design-wise, but so much fun to maneuver and super versatile - I find myself able to climb cliffs I would normally require a springer for, able to cross leaps for raptors, fly over quicksand, and much more.
It feels like a very serious end-game mount, and a reward one at that after all the gold and work required for it.
I’m super happy with it, and can’t wait to introduce one within some of my own character’s IC stories !
On February 23, 1945 (72 years ago today) a small U.S. flag was first raised atop Mount Suribachi soon after the mountaintop was captured at around 10:20 am. 1st Lt. Harold G. Schrier, executive officer of Easy Company, volunteered to lead a 40-man combat patrol up the mountain. Lt. Col. Johnson, the battalion commander, handed Schrier a flag saying, “If you get to the top put it up.” The patrol carried that 54-by-28-inch flag, which had been taken from the battalion’s transport ship, the USS Missoula, and up to the slopes of the extinct volcano. Lt. Schrier successfully led the combat patrol to the top. The flag was attached to a pipe, and the flagstaff was raised, marking the first time in history the American flag was raised on Japanese soil. The moment was captured by U.S. Marine Corps photographer, SSgt. Lou Lowery.
There was a roar from the Marines and sailors off shore and on the island, and the blasts of the ship horns alerted the Japanese, who up to this point had stayed in their cave bunkers. The Marines and corpsmen on Mt. Suribachi found themselves under fire from Japanese troops, but Schrier’s Marines were able quickly to eliminate the threat.
