Here is where all Elysium Gates contests are listed. It seems a natural outgrowth from the Ancient Greek theme of Elysium Gates to use the term “Olympiad” – which refers
to the ancient summer festival of games, or Olympics, which began in 776 BC and repeated every four years.
Ancient winners were considered heroes in their own right and were honored for life. The prize won in those days was a circlet of olive sprigs cut from Kallistephanos, the
sacred tree of Hercules, with a golden scythe. This was deemed a crown of noble and heroic deeds.
We can’t promise you the world-wide fame one would get in an actual Olympiad festival, but certainly the feel of amiable competition will be here – and you certainly won’t
have to wait every four years for a chance to vie for a title. The olive crown will also be replaced with something a bit more contemporary (although you might receive an
olive wreath graphic), but the spirit is the same.
So..., come join us. Take part in the events and contests. Show your skills and aptitude. We won’t ask you to hurl a discus or run the hundred, but you’ll get a workout just
the same – and hopefully have a good time in the process.
