About this creation
Untitled MOC Group homepage MOC Athalon homepage Cronus was now the lord of the universe. He sat on the highest mountain and ruled over heaven and earth with a firm hand...This was man's Golden Age. Men lived happily and in peace with the gods and each other. They did not kill and had no locks on their doors, for theft had not yet been invented.
But Cronus did not set his brothers free, and Mother Earth was angry with him and plotted his downfall... She knew that one of his sons would be stronger than he, just as Cronus had been stronger than his father. Cronus knew it too, so every time his Titaness-wife Rhea gave birth, he took the newborn god and swallowed it. "Can I have some mustard please, Rhea?" ...When Rhea expected her sixth child, she asked Mother Earth to help her save the child from his father. That was what Mother Earth was waiting for. She gave her daughter whispered advice, and Rhea walked away smiling. As soon as Rhea had borne her child, the god Zeus, she hid him. Then she wrapped a stone in baby clothes and gave it to her husband to swallow instead of her son.
"Hmm, rather pale complexion... nothing a little hydrochloric stomach acid can't fix!" Cronus was fooled and swallowed the stone, and the little god Zeus was spirited away.
"Lord of the Universe... pshh, more like Lord of the Dumb if you ask me..."

Okay, check list for things that went wrong last time:
Good: your turn, judges!
