Zeus[edit]

The gods are best served by those who need their help the least.
For the moment, let them enjoy a calm sea, a fresh breeze and each other.
  • If I had to punish every blasphemy, I would have no followers!
  • The gods are best served by those who need their help the least.
  • For the moment, let them enjoy a calm sea, a fresh breeze and each other. The girl is pretty and I was always sentimental. But for Jason, there are other adventures. I have not finished with Jason. Let us continue the game another day.

Aeëtes[edit]

  • Rise up, you dead, slain of the hydra, rise from your graves and avenge us! Those who steal the Golden Fleece must die.

Phineas[edit]

  • Lord Zeus, I was a sinner. I have never tried to deny it. But I didn't sin every day! Why then do you punish me every day?

Dialogue[edit]

Pelias: Well?
Priest: Zeus, king of the gods of the Greeks, brighten the ashes that I may read the future. I see... a great tree at the end of the world. And in its branches there hang the skull and skin of a ram. They gleam and shine for it is a prize of the gods, a Golden Fleece.

Phineas: But tell me, what gods protect you?
Jason: None now.
Phineas: You won't pass the Clashing Rocks.
