  1. "There wandering through the gloom I first survey'd,
    New to the realms of death, Elpenor's shade:
    His cold remains all naked to the sky
    On distant shores unwept, unburied lie.
    Sad at the sight I stand, deep fix'd in woe,
    And ere I spoke the tears began to flow.

    "'O say what angry power Elpenor led
    To glide in shades, and wander with the dead?
    How could thy soul, by realms and seas disjoin'd,
    Outfly the nimble sail, and leave the lagging wind?"

    Long short, his mother died. I hope this answers all of ye questions

  1. What the hell are you talking about? This is a COMPUTER GAMES forum, not somewhere to talk about ancient Greek Myths so please close this as it is utterly irrelevant to what this forum is about!

  2. O.O I think your confusing the game with one of Homers epics. Perhaps you could try reading the Odyssey. Nowadays its mandatory to have read both the Odyssey and the illiad to pass Ancient history in High school. (but that's totally irrelevant.)
