The Sea of Monsters Picture

The Sea of Monsters, as seen in... the Sea of Monsters! I always wondered at the geography of this place, so figured I'd take a crack at it. The original Greek vistas were brought via the Western Wind, Zephrus, yadda yadda blah.

Interestingly enough, the original sea now corresponds to the Bermuda Triangle, within which are the Bahamas. Note to self: the Bahamas are a trap.

On through the breach! The Sympeglades, or the Clashing Rocks, were passed by Odysseus on their way through the sea.

Scylla and Charybdis, two monsters, serve as an alternate entrance to the Sea of Monsters. One can either go near Scylla, a many-headed beast on a high cliff, or Charybdis, a monster at the base of a whirlpool.

Both the Sympeglades, and Scylla and Charybdis, appear whenever you try to go around them, so their placement on the map is a bit disingenuous.

Circe's Island, former residence of a pig-loving witch herself, is now home to a burning spa resort and some rather vitamin C-deficient pirates. Don't.... don't ask.

The Isle of the Sun God, Helios, is now under new management! Sadly, Apollo has been too busy being awesome to herd his Sacred Cattle, so they have been housed in Triple G Ranch, Texas, which, coincidentally, is also under new management!

The Island of the Sirens are home to... the Sirens. Not to be confused with the equally alluring Mermaids across the way.

Ogygia, the Isle-Prison of the Sea Titaness Calypso. In the original Sea, I decided to move it over with the rest.

Polyphemus' Island, home to a rather grumbly Cyclops and some very hungry sheep.

Like the Bahamas, the Isla de Vida were incorporated into the Sea as a native isle of the region. Its western bay is home to some tetchy Mermaids, and at its center is a ruin lost to time... (wink wink nudge nudge)
