Hey everyone! This is Rachel Elizabeth Dare writing to you live from Camp Half-Blood. This is my journal in which I’ll be posting about Camp Half-Blood news or just about my life.
Last week 2 new campers were claimed, say a special welcome to John Evelyn son of Apollo and Theresa Spirit daughter of Hecate! Still there are a few unclaimed campers so any if any god or goddess recognizes the names of the kids below please come by and claim them.
- Jamie Silverstone
- Tim Scarlet
- Amy Miller
- Terry Miller (yes, twins)
- Sara Rewel
- Derek Arrowhead (*cough, cough* any day now Apollo)
The quests have been reopened so campers of all ages are able to test their skills in the mortal world! Sadly, this means more work for me. Today Missy Trish age 12 from Hermes, Victoria Carlson age 17 and head of Nike cabin, and Stewart Aaron age 10 from Athena were given a prophecy and quest. I can see why Chiron chose them for the quest. The trio has brains, bravery, sneakiness, and victory on their side. They are starting their journey in the South Sandwich Islands (I know, I didn’t believe there was a place like that either) near Antarctica.
At the campfire last night the spirit of Delphi gave them this chilling (and embarrassing, for me) prophecy:
Three shall cross the blades of ice
To find that the moon will not suffice
Four shall seek the dragon’s gold all burned
To find the crossroads have been turned
Two shall make it back alive
And all will fail to survive
Lovely isn’t it! I just love delivering the bad news! Oh well, at least I’m not delivering any prophecies in the middle of math class.
