Tonight I was reminded that Clash of the Titans essentially took the
epilogue of Perseus's story and turned it around to drive the entire story
(in the original myth, saving Andromeda is pretty much something Perseus does
on his way back from the real story, with the entire Cetus/Kraken thing being
totally unmentioned until after the Medusa is dead).
For High Concept Challenge #23, take some classical myth, find a minor
element of it, and use that as the core of a story. It need not be Greek
myth, but it should be ancient and the main story reasonably well-known even
if the element you use isn't well-known.
Dave Van Domelen, careful, Icarus....
