Oral tradition is a deeply important aspect of human history. Aspects of oral tradition that guided the bardic performances of texts attributed to Homer such as The Odyssey share commonalities with modern-day Dungeons & Dragons. This D&D module was created based in the world of The Odyssey in order to draw connections to its roots in oral tradition and provide a space to empower modern bards to create their own associated stories.
