Aegis: ‘The aegis or aigis (Ancient Greek: Αἰγίς; English pronunciation: /ˈiːdʒɪs/), as stated in the Iliad, is carried by Athena and Zeus, but its nature is uncertain. It had been interpreted as an animal skin or a shield, sometimes bearing the head of a Gorgon. There may be a connection with a deity named Aex or Aix, a daughter of Helios and a nurse of Zeus or alternatively a mistress of Zeus (Hyginus, Astronomica 2. 13). The aegis of Athena is referred to in several places in the Iliad. “It produced a sound as from a myriad roaring dragons (Iliad, 4.17) and was borne by Athena in battle … and among them went bright-eyed Athene, holding the precious aegis which is ageless and immortal: a hundred tassels of pure gold hang fluttering from it, tight-woven each of them, and each the worth of a hundred oxen.”

The modern concept of doing something “under someone’s aegis” means doing something under the protection of a powerful, knowledgeable, or benevolent source. The word aegis is identified with protection by a strong force with its roots in Greek mythology and adopted by the Romans; there are parallels in Norse mythology and in Egyptian mythology as well, where the Greek word aegis is applied by extension.’

So no more hiding behind shields of gold now is the time to whip out your missiles…

TAGN has responded quickly with a thorough look: aegis and the return of heavy missiles

I think Wilhelm is excited to be able to play with his missile launcher again! ‘All that’s missing is a didgeridoo!’ [He’s talking about the soundtrack but its a nice quote!]

‘Is that a missile in your pocket or you pleased to see me?’

First time I have used that in AGES!

I had a long weekend of family duties and little EVE play (next blog post…) but I was glad to get to work today to check out some EVE blogs.
