2,700 years ago, a great poet, emerging from a dark age, recorded for posterity the memories of a heroic age hundreds of years earlier, back in the Age of Bronze. This poet later came to be known as Homer.

Homer's poems were part of what brought about a renaissance in Greece, bringing to life the tales of epic heroes overcoming great trials to achieve true glory. In weaving the tale of his heroes, Homer did the same for himself. Their epic became his own. Their immortality became his own.

Like Homer, and his heroes, I will construct my own epic - in words and deeds. This is my story.
