Your Field Guide to Spotting Agamemnon

If you want to have a chat with Agamemnon, you'd better be prepared to pay some homage. He was the king of Mycenae and the commander of the Greek forces during the Trojan War, so he's totally used to everybody being humble when they're around him. To get a word with the king of kings you'll have to head down Elysium, the city of the blessed dead, where he holds court these days. He'll be the big dude with the beard and gleaming crown, surrounded by sexy love slaves, loyal warriors, and a ton of subjects, whom he's intimidated into doing everything he says. Be careful when you're talking to him. He's totally full of himself, and he's got a nasty temper. Say the wrong thing, and you might end up on the wrong end of his spear.
