  • Laertes' Son
  • Thank you, King Alcinous.  I am Laertes' Son.  We just came from the battle in Troy, we won the battle with the Trojan Horse trick.
  • Welcome Odysseus!  Please tell me your story of your journey from Troy.
  • Our first challenge was on the Land of the Lotus Eaters,  I sent a couple of my men ahead to explore the Island and they didn't obey my rules - as usual. They ate the Lotus Flowers and it made them never want to go back home and they had to be tied to the ship to be taken home.
  • Lotus Eaters
  • Eat Me! Once you eat me you will never want to go home again. The only way for you to go home will be to tie you down on the ship.
  • Our second challenge was to defeat Polyphemus.  We settled in his cave - unknowingly - while he was out and he came back so we had to make a plan to escape his cave.
  • Cyclops
  • Next we stopped at Aeaea, where Circe lives. When we got there, there were tame wolves and mountain lions.  Circe fed us a meal and turned us into pigs.
  • Witch Circe
  • Land of the Dead
  • You will have to go to the land of Thrinakia.  If any cattle are harmed, I see destruction of your crew and ship. You will be the only survivor. 
  • Our fifth challenge was to make it past the sirens, Scylla, ad Charybdis.  We put beeswax on our ears and my crew tied me up. I lost six of my men to Scylla.
  • Sirens, Scylla, and Charybdis
  • I will take your whole ship and eat your whole crew!
  • I will eat six of your men!
