The world of the Paranormal has been long since been deemed as fiction. Werewolves, Vampires, Cyclops, Ghosts and of course the ever so terrifying giant squid don't exist. But has anyone ever actually looked hard enough? Glimpses of creatures that seem to be from another world are sighted every day, but are passed off as fake for lack of proof. If people had seen the things I have seen, they would whistle a different tune. My name is Herman and I have something to tell you. That thing you hear going bump in the night is not the wind. That thing you saw running in the woods wasn't a Big Cat, but something much worse. And of course, if you don't believe me, I got a 120 foot octopus swimming around near the docks that would like to prove it to ya.
The story takes place in the early 1930s as the Depression affects the world and it is ever relevant in Sydney, Australia. The story surrounds 14 Paranormal Investigators that are part of a secret world organization called "Paranormal Investigation & Eradication" or PIE for short. This branch of the Organization is tasked with keeping the horrors of the Paranormal away from the public of Australia for their own safety. They are equipped with the most advanced machinery of the time and every member has been gifted with control over an element to help them combat the much stronger creatures of the Paranormal. They readily combat the forces that seek to harm Humanity and will fight those who seek to control the Paranormal for domination of the human race.
It's a time similar to our own, but with one world-changing difference. The beings commonly called the Greek Gods, believed to have faded into the mists of time millennia ago, are living right under the noses of citizens of the United States. The gods' influence has spread across the entire country; Mount Olympus, home to the gods, is anchored to the top of the Empire State Building. The gods aren't the only celestial beings around, however. They have children: half-human, half-god. These special children, called demigods, stay in the one safe haven in the USA, a summer camp known to the inhabitants as Camp Half-Blood.
Demigods train to fight while at camp, for there are numberless terrors that could strike at any time: the Minotaur, Cyclops, and Medusa, to name but three. Without the knowledge of how to combat these monsters, the demigods would be killed as soon as they step into the regular human world.
Recent acts by certain gods have thrown the Olympian Council into disarray; the camp director, the centaur Chiron, believes Hades, Lord of the Dead, has imprisoned another god, Apollo, in the Underworld. The Council, and soon after, the world, will fall into chaos if the situation is not settled.
In times like these, the gods turn to their children for help. They are offered a quest to serve their parents, out in the real world. Sometimes they succeed... other times they are killed in action, and never return.
Two challenges have been set thus far: A team of three has set out to slay the Nemean Lion and bring its pelt to Zeus on Olympus, and five demigods are journeying across the United States to Los Angeles, where they will confront Hades in an attempt to restore order to the Council.
