This week Expy, my red dragon friend and mascot, treats us to a quiz on one of his idols: Ladon! Ladon was a majestic, ancient dragon who was so awesome that he forced the greeks to come up with the word "draco". Let’s see if you know your greekyness geekyness!

All questions and answers from Dragons: Fearsome Monsters From Myth and Fiction.

NOTE: Some e-mail clients and RSS readers aren’t able to submit your quiz answers to the website. If you’re reading this from an e-mail subscription or a feed reader you should head to Dungeon Mastering to take the quiz.

This week’s (mini) quiz – Ladon: Greekyness Geekyness!

In Greek mythology there is a monstrous dragon named Ladon with 100 heads who twines his body around a tree in the Garden of Hesperides. How many eyes does Ladon have?


  • 100. Ladon is a dragclops

  • 200. What kind of stupid question is this?

  • 1,000. Greeks like big, round numbers.

  • Pi.

What grows in the tree?


  • Diamond oranges

  • Jade mangos

  • Golden apples

  • Gnomes

Who placed Ladon in the Garden?


  • Heracles

  • Athena

  • Zeus

  • Hera

Ladon’s garden watch was a pretty cool job because it was located in this heavenly location:


  • Corsica

  • Canary Islands

  • Iberian Peninsula

  • Greenland

Let’s say some Greek dude got lucky and pwns Ladon. What happened when Ladon’s blood hits the ground?


  • Dragon trees grow.

  • Mini dragons are born.

  • Said Greek dude celebrates.

Where did Ladon end up?


  • In a grave

  • The Draco constellation

  • Mount Olympus

  • New Jersey

How great is Dungeon Mastering?

  • It’s just great.
  • It’s awesome.
  • It’s uber-awesome.
  • It’s red-dragon-awesome.

    cool!
    I need to brush up on my Greek mythology though :)

    @Johnnay: Ladon isn’t the Hydra – he’s multi-headed but still a dragon

    Almost perfect! Ladon aficionados everywhere are impressed right now.

    Why is my psychology -1? What is wrong with me? Why, Ladon, why?! I am doomed to forever seek out perfection, but to fall short by a -1 suck modifier?? Woe!

    Not too shabby. It’s been a few years since I’ve brushed up on my Greek Mythology. I suggest Barry Powell’s Mythology (not Edith Hamiliton’s – blah!).

    Japanese Mythology has been more entertaining as of recent – can’t beat little bowl-headed turtles that fly on cucumbers. And Hawaiian Mythology is more out there.

    Fun quiz – thanks!

    Astounding! You passed! Are you a dragon scholar?

    Not bad for never even seeing the book and it having been a couple of decades for studing Greek Mythology.

  9. LEONIDOS says:

    Man, Ladon is such a baller…you’d thin Hera would’ve had him keep his eyes on Zeus all the time rather than a tree with shiny apples…

  12. Yax says:

    @Reverend Mike: Well, Ladon’s not such a baller because Heracles pwned him. But she definitely should have kept an eye on Zeus. Here’s a quote from God Checker:

    “HERA: Mrs ZEUS. Supreme Greek Goddess and the Queen of Olympus.

    She’s also a Goddess of Marriage and Birth, which is somewhat ironic considering that her notoriously unfaithful husband ZEUS produced an incredible number of illicit offspring with an entire pantheon of lovely ladies.”
