Ithaca – A Remediation of the poem for a gaming module

This entry was posted in Adventure Games, Books & Literature, Fantasy Games, Online Games, Role Playing Games by Cleave on

Here is the video that was originally created for the Online Games: Literature, New Media, and Narrative by by Jay Clayton of Vanderbilt University, offered at Coursera

The actual NeverWinter Nights 1 game modual can be downloaded from the following link Ithaca_NWN1. My wife and I spent 35 hours on the creation of the mod and then about an hour setting up for the video. If you down load the mod, it was made with NWN not NWN2 with all expansions as well as CEP 2.4 available at the The NeverWinter Vault

Here is the poem that was used in creating the various different game areas.

Ithaca

As you set out on the way to Ithaca
hope that the road is a long one,
filled with adventures, filled with understanding.
The Laestrygonians and the Cyclopes,
Poseidon in his anger: do not fear them,
you’ll never come across them on your way
as long as your mind stays aloft, and a choice
emotion touches your spirit and your body.
The Laestrygonians and the Cyclopes,
savage Poseidon; you’ll not encounter them
unless you carry them within your soul,
unless your soul sets them up before you.
