Hello everyone! I figured since I mentioned that the Champions' mission would coincide with a Camp equivalent, it'd be good to get said equivalent moving. This comes after Akela IM'd the Hephaestus Counsellor for help when she was attacked by another set of CoO members (the Council had sent an experimental group and they perished; that being the reasoning on that).
The Basics Leading to This
Akela Kalili is a daughter of Hephaestus who has the gift to control Greek Fire, a thing bestowed upon her family by Prometheus, her ancient ancestor. Whilst she cannot summon it, through forgoing any usual Hephaestus powers, she can manipulate it in various ways. Subsequently, she is an asset to any side.
Naturally, her allegiance is to Camp Half-Blood. She resided at Camp for a year or so before being installed as the Guardian of Hephaestus' Nevadan Workshop. There, it is her job to protect the various projects being worked on by a select number of Hephaestus children whilst she herself has a small squadron of automatons to protect her.
Recently, the Champions of Othrys have found her and, after sending out an experimental group who perished to her defences, have sent out another group soon thereafter in hopes of catching her off guard. During this fight, Akela IM'd the Hephaestus Counsellor and asked for help. Alexander, paired with a dream sent from Hephaestus, Camp has decided to send a group of demigods to her location in hopes of either securing her or transporting her back to Camp for safety.
Alexander and Hephaestus' Messages
|Lord Hephaestus ~ God of Fire & the Forge|
"Seeking excellence means choosing to forge your own sword to cut through the limitations of your life..."
|"Over the past few weeks my Nevadan Workshop has been the subject to a number of attacks. I wish I could tell you the attackers' ulterior motives or identify them, but I cannot do so. I ask for your assistance as not only can I not intervene due to a majority of my children working there, but other children of the Gods come to the workshop near daily, therefore making it hard for any other god to assist."|

The Premise of the Quest
The Quest Goers will traverse the United States to get to the Nevadan Workshop to find and retrieve Akela (that is, presuming they don't fall behind the CoO mission equivalent whereby the latter will have their objective achieved).
Like all quests, they will face a number of monsters along the way and will have some run-in's with some NPC Champions.
This quest will reveal more information about the Champions to Camp, however that information will be given by Alexander in the conclusion of the quest. (AKA, I don't wholly know how much info to reveal and therefore I'll come up with it when the quest finishes!)
The quest will need six members and we will be selective on who we pick. Fret not! If you aren't picked for this quest and you signed up, you will have first priority come the next quest. A child of Hephaestus would be appreciated but is not mandatory.
Nymphs can go on this quest but, due to there being the uncertain nature, head counsellors will not be able to. Lieutenants will be able to go.
God Parent/Creator (+ Cabin position if necessary):
Any particular expertise in weapons?
Why should you go on the Quest?
Please note that the character MUST have a page in order to go on the mission. Mission sign-ups will be open for one week and will close on 18 December 2017 at 6 PM (GMT).
