The Moat

The Steps of Knowledge

One of the most feared and powerful of the greek gods was Poseidon, the god of the sea. The greeks feared Poseidon's violent temper, which manifested itself in thunderstorms and earthquakes. Poseidon's awesome power was strengthened by his mighty trident, which never left his side. Legend has it that one morning Poseidon awakened to find the trident missing! He bellowed to his slumbering wife.

"Aphortrite, have you seen my trident?"

"Poseidon, if you've seen one Trident you've seen them all."

Poseidon sent out a warning to all of Greece.

"Unless my trident is returned by midnight, I will unleash such fury upon this land that no creature will be safe!"

The Greeks searched high and low (mostly low), but to no avail. At five minutes before midnight Greek standard time, a young fisherman named Cretus stood trembling before Poseidon.

"You're royal wetness, a near-sighted stingray mistook your trident for his brother. I retrieved it, unfortunately it is broken in two."

"You are a good and honest soul young Cretus, even if you smell like a trout."

As a reward, Poseidon gave Cretus half of the broken trident. And the other half found its way to the temple.
