So answer me this then. How the heck is he attacking you? It sounds for all the world like he's got a gun. Just curiosity. As for the name, I used to read a lot of Greek myth but I'd never seen that spelling. As for Heracles and Hercules, I've always preferred Heracles since that's the name I first heard when I read the legend.

Hi Bryan,

Correct. Like I said in my last post Keberos is the Greek spelling of Cerberus. Cerberus is the Latain version of the word that was in the Roman writings with the same creature. They mean the same creature, but I felt using the Greek name was more appropriate for this game.

You will often find this with a lot of Greek myths. There are the Latin translations and the Greek translation of the works. The name of the character you use depends largely on if the English version was based on the Latin or Greek manuscripts. Heracles and Hercules are both names for the same legendary hero. Hercules, the popular name we use, is based on Latin works. Where his real name, Haracles, is Greek.

Anyway, seeing as this game is from Angela's perspective I think she would know the difference between someone's Latin and Greek name. If this is too confusing for player's I can name the creatures by their more popular Latain/English equivilants, but aI thought it would be more fun to use the actual Greek names when and where possible.

HTH

If I had to guess I'd say he actually meant Cerberus, which in Greek mythology was the three-headed dog who guarded the gates to the Underworld. The only difference is I don't believe the traditional Cerberus could use a gun. He tended to use his fangs. Homer: Hey, uh, could you go across the street and get me a slice of pizza?
