As we come to a close in our Delve journey, we look at the Hero’s Journey laid out by Joseph Campbell. How does this apply to our show? More important, how does this apply to some of the prevalent fiction and mythology you have actually heard about? And what can it all mean in gaming? These questions and many more partially answered on this episode.
In this episode we discuss Stage 1: Departure. What happens when the hero gets their call to adventure, maybe kicking and screaming? What happens at the first boss battle? Why are we talking about The Little Mermaid?
