Greek Gods and Zombies
Latin 3: Halloween Project

Zombies have stormed mount Olympus. Latin speaking zombies. In every other respect - besides speaking only in Latin - they are just regular zombies, doing what zombies do.

There are lots of them.

The gods are not pleased.

Your Task:

Describe the battle between the Greek gods and the zombies. Use English to describe what happens, but use only Latin when quoting what the zombies say.

REMEMBER: These are loquacious zombies. They use at least 10 sentences in Latin throughout your narrative.

Just as the zombies are zombies, so the gods are the gods. You must include at least five different Greek gods in your narrative, and each must have substantially its own character consistent with Greek mythology.

That is, make each god behave according to his/her Greek character.

Be creative in every way, but make sure that:

  • Your zombies meet the 10 sentence minimum requirement.
  • You include 5 Greek gods, goddesses, or heroes who stay in their traditional Greek character.

Here is a list of gods, goddesses, and heroes to help you tell your story. True Olympians are in bold.

Iuppiter/Zeus Juno/Hera Apollo Diana/Artemis
Neptunus/Poseidon Ceres/Demeter Minerva/Athena Mars/Ares
Venus/Aphrodite Mercurius/Hermes Vulcanus/Hephaestus Vesta/Hestia
Bacchus/Dionysus Pluto/Hades Proserpina/Persephone Cupido/Eros
Hercules Perseus Prometheus Faunus/Pan
