Percy Jackson book series author Rick Riordan called the Capture the Flag sequences the most like what he had envisioned when writing the first book.

That felt like the scene that I remember imagining in my head, [We were] on the beach watching kids fight each other with swords. Totally normal day. — Rick Riordan to the Daily Beast.

The kids remember how difficult it was wearing armour and fighting with swords in a hot Vancouver summer.
