What more can be said? The legendary epic of the hero king Odysseus, wandering home from the Trojan War, given no rest nor clear path by the gods, driven around all of the known world, beyond it, and to the underworld and back.

Fighting all manner of monsters, horrors, tricksters, coming home at last to his country, he finds suitors seeking his wife's hand and his domain. Showing the might and wit of his fame, stringing the bow that only he can string, reclaiming after years of weary toil his home and family, he rests.

This is a tale without peer, a story of the man who could outwit the Trojans, and all of the gods in a time of powerful, fickle and frivolous deities.
