The ancient Greek god, Apollo enjoyed having temples built in his honour. He liked the gifts and attention. His special powers were respected and he had the power of knowing the future and his temples were all filled up with many people asked what would happen to them in the near future. He got fed up of all the questions so Apollo decided that he needed an assistant.
Your new home.
Apollo had the magical power to make others know to predict the future. So he got a young, pretty girl and turns her into an oracle.
Well, you are going to...
Apollo´s rules for the wise oracle were that she needed to tell the truth, but she could not be too specific and there might be some misunderstanding, this was going to be fun!
FIGHT FOR OUR KING DYING...
Apollo speedily found a perfect young girl and magically turned her into a real oracle. He specially amde a vast and wide temple for her to be in and to make it to her home.
Word rapidly spread through the whole place and extremely quickly everyone showed up for the young oracle to answer their interesting questions.
One day, a king came to ask the oracle if he´d win the battle and she replied, a great king would easily win the battle and the weary king left the temple, happily. The next day at the war they lost and the king died. The oracle had told the truth, she had to. What a pity he had not listened.
