OK, here's the plan. The gods have the best land, while the mortals have desert. I say we take control of the gods' forests!
The gods' palace is in the middle of the great cedar forests. From there they decide who gets the precious wood, and they pass judgments on the kings of the world. They think they are untouchable because nobody has ever dared challenge them.
So, should we make a direct assault on their palace? But they might have good defenses. Or should we use our brains and try to out-think them? But what if they out-think us? Or should we do something else?
