Kate  | 351 comments Unfortunate times are upon us,
filled with bitterness and gloom,
Meyham and madness run wild,
and the earth will go into a doom.

What can you do to evade thise fate?
How must you act to live on?
Pray to the gods young godlings,
the descision is their's is you're gone.

message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

Wait, I think I would add a game for this... anyways, guys, when you make a prophecy, we are going to crack the prophecy (not literally crack it...) as in trying to make sense of what is it trying to say. Use people from the group if you can.

I can, I am a borned Haiku Maker.
There will be a quest awaiting.
The gods will be fading.
There is only one hope.
If you can find the Pope.
Save the Pope's life.
Then you will have a knife.
If you do not save the Pope.
You are such a dope.

message 36: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie (chasmofbooks) Here's what I found:

Consulting the Oracle. No one knows for certain how the process of consulting the Delphic oracle worked. However, over the years, a traditional account has been widely accepted. According to this description, a visitor who wanted to submit a question to the oracle would first make an appropriate offering and sacrifice a goat. Then a priestess known as the Pythia would take the visitor's question into the inner part of Apollo's temple, which contained the omphalos and a golden statue of Apollo. Seated on a three-legged stool, the priestess would fall into a trance.

After some time, the priestess would start to writhe around and foam at the mouth. In a frenzy, she would begin to voice strange words and sounds. Priests and interpreters would listen carefully and record her words in verse or in prose. The message was then passed on to the visitor who had posed the question. Some modern scholars believe that the priestess did not become delirious but rather sat quietly as she delivered her divine message.

Anyone could approach the oracle, whether king, public official, or private citizen. At first, a person could consult the oracle only once a year, but this restriction was later changed to once a month.
