    SEA-Ideas

    1. A couple demigods go to the same school. A buch of monsters ransack the whole school and terrorize mortals. The demigods escape and relize the monsters are chasing them. They find a satyr who tooks them safely to Camp. Once at camp, they relize there are traitors in the camp and its not the safest place for them.---- for this one l was kind of thinking staying inside Camp Half-Blood. Some demigods are chosen to keep watch of anything suspisious. When they relize the demigod traitors are working for a monster army who plan on attacking Camp Half-Blood. |||||||||| 2. While at home one demigod is attacked by a monster and his/her mother/father is killed. He flees and hops in cab, which turns out to be the grey sisters cab. Him/her arrive at Camp Half-Blood at a bad time. A whole group of demigods have gone missing on their quest. Including many cabin counsolers. He/she is one of the chosen along with five or six other demigods to find this group, only to relize they aren't dead but being held as prisoners.---- for this one l was thinking in the group that went missing, there was a traitor. He/she leads them to a cave that turns out to be a secret lair of some titan. Thats pretty much all l have. Tell me whatcha think?

    Silver - Ideas

    So here are some ideas of mine:<p>1. _____(a demigod) is at camp. A satyr tells him that another demigod is in trouble. The demigod goes to save the other demigod but both are trapped and rescued by yet another demigod.<p>2. ____(a demigod) goes to school. On the way home he/she is attacked. The monster either brings him/her to the same place as Luke(idea for Garrett) or traps the demigod. The trapped demigod is then rescued by another demigod.<p>3. _____(a demigod) is trapped by a monster. He/she kills the monster only to find more waiting for him. He/she is capured and either taken to the place where Luke is(another idea for Garrett) or imprisoned by ____(evil character who is not 'overlord').<> I hope you like these. I will probably add more later. <p>~Silver &star
