"Hermes, where have you been? I've been looking for you!"

"I have been visiting a wonderful land.  The people there wear beautiful
clothing -- You've heard Hera raving about it.  Athena boasts of their skill
on the fields of combat, and loves eating the splendid desserts they make.
Aphrodite positively swoons over the graceful, courtly men, and their fair
women would most certainly catch Your eye.  Dionysus whines that their
revels are unmatched even by his own. I'm telling you, Zeus, you've got to
see these people to know how wonderful they are!"

"Where is this place? What's the name of this mighty kingdom?"

"It's called 'Ansteorra', Zeus."

"Ansteorra, eh?  I'd like to see these Ansteorrans up close.  Invite them to
join us for a day... Have them dress in their finery, and come here to
dance, to drink, and to have fun."

"It shall be done, O Mighty Zeus!"
