Previous: 19. Resolution: Initial misfortune or lack is resolved

Next: 21. Pursuit: Hero is chased

 

Description

Symbol: (down-arrow)

The hero now sets out for home, hopefully uneventfully, although they may be carrying the treasure or artefact gained and bandits could be waiting in the wings.

Example

In Star Wars, they leave the Death Star for Yavin 4.

Discussion

Homecoming is as emotional an experience as the matching stage of departure () and the journey experienced as a sense of triumph that mirrors the departing sense of foreboding.
