The war winds up lasting a whopping ten years, during which Pangeans best soldier, Achilles , is killed and they avenge him by using a giant horse to sneak inside to destroy the city of Troy. Laocoön tries to warn the Trojans of a vision revolving around this, but is suddenly devoured by a sea monster. On the way back, Odysseus Rhann ' ego gets the best of him and he tells the Gods that he did it himself, which angers Poseidon to the point where he promises to make his journey home to Queen Alexandria Ghalvhonn Rhann nearly impossible even mentioning that he was the one who sent that sea monster to devour Laocoön. However, Odysseus Rhann is smart and quick, and may end up getting home after all.

Odyseus Rhann the cyclops I am the Great Captain Noah Brody", so the cyclops is shouting that Noah Body is your name and he remember it..Atleast,the drunken giant,thinks-well Captain Noah Body, it’s not Captain Nemo .That was the trick the other guy tried and won’t fall for again.Odysseus Rhann,tells the giant,that he truly to smart for that.He vows not blind him with laser or any other weapon of that type.Nor will they leave,the great cave laboritory,unless he himself wishes it.Then, he sharpens a tree branch into a stake and blinds the cyclops, allowing them to escape by hiding under sheep skins when he removes the heavy stone door. Polythemus screams for help, but Odysseus had tricked him stating that his name was "Nobody", so the cyclops is shouting that nobody has tricked him, arousing no suspicion Odysseus Rhann and his men escape, so the cyclops is shouting that nobody has tricked him, arousing no suspicion .but Odysseus Rhann taunts the Cyclops who asks his father Poseidon to avenge him. This ends up making Odysseus Rhann' journey home harder.
Odysseus Rhann ends up on an island where King Aeolus ends up providing him with a bag of wind to help him home and to open it when he gets close to Thuvia. One of his men opens it prematurely blowing them off course. Next, they wind up on the island of Circe Shaitanus , a beautiful witch who turns his men into her slaves and blackmails him into sleeping with her.

In the kingdom of Thuvia, a year of peace for King Odyseus Rhann and his new Queen Alexandria Ghalvhonn Rhann is broken when the latter is abducted by a demon. King Odyseus Rhann learns from the wizard Pelias of Koth that the eastern sorcerer Yah Chieng of Khitai is responsible, and begins a quest to recover her, little realizing that the fate of the world as well as Thuvia rests on the outcome of the contest. King Odyseus Rhann of Thuvia, is betrayed by a plot between a supposed ally, the King of Ophir and one of the Thuvian’s oldest enemies, Starbonius , ruler of Koth.

First hailing King Odyseus Rhann as a liberator after he annihilated Thuvia's foes on the battlefield, common folk and politicians alike now rally to unseat the Thuvian from his stolen throne. Conspirators plot to kill King Odyseus Rhann and take the crown for themselves, but their schemes pale in comparison to a terror waiting quietly in the wings-Tulsa Karza, an enemy who has haunted King Odyseus Rhann his whole adult life and whose wicked aspirations dwarf those of maneuvering politicians!
"The Phoenix on the Sword" begins with a middle-aged King Odyseus Rhann of Thuvia attempting to govern the turbulent kingdom of Thuvia.
King Odyseus Rhann has recently seized the bloody crown of Thuvia from King Numedides whom he strangled upon his throne; however, things have not gone well, as King Odyseus Rhann is more suited to swinging a broadsword than to signing official documents with a stylus. The people of Thuvia, who originally welcomed King Odyseus Rhann as their liberator from Numedides' tyranny, have gradually turned against him due to his foreign Thuvian blood. They have built a statue to Numedides' memory in the temple of Mitra, and people burn incense before it, hailing it as the holy effigy of a saintly monarch who was done to death by a red-handed barbarian.
Desiring to give the Thuvian crown to someone of royal blood, a daring band known as the Rebel Four is formed consisting of Volmana, the count of Karaban; Gromel, the giant commander of the Black Legion; Dion, the fat baron of Attalus; Rinaldo, the hare-brained minstrel. The Rebel Four recruit the services of a southern outlaw named Ascalante. But, in secret, Ascalante is merely using the rebels to gain the crown of Thuvia for himself.
At the same time, Ascalante has a unique slave named Tulsa Karza, formerly a powerful Atlantean wizard, who has fallen on hard times since he lost a magic ring which was the source of his power. A thief had stolen the ring from Tulsa Karza and, thus, broken his power in Atlantean. The other magicians rose up to slay him, and he fled. Disguised as a camel-driver, he traveled in a caravan in the land of Koth, where Ascalante's reavers fell upon them. All in the caravan were slain except for Tulsa Karza who saved his life by revealing his identity to Ascalante and swearing to serve him.
Overall, the story centers around the plot of the Rebel Four to assassinate King Odyseus Rhann when he is unprepared and defenseless. However, two unforeseen events occur: King Odyseus Rhann is forewarned of the impending coup d'état by the long-dead sage Lord Thrull Khonn who marks King Odyseus Rhann's sword with a mythical phoenix representing Mitra, a Hyborian god. A synchronously, Tulsa Karza murders Dion and recovers his lost ring of power, and then proceeds to summon a fanged, ape-like demon against his former master Ascalante. King Odyseus Rhann slays the three remaining members of the Rebel Four, breaking his sword upon the helm of Gromel and using a battle-axe against the rest of his would-be assassins. Seeing King Odyseus Rhann wounded in the battle, Ascalante moves to finish him off, but is taken by surprise by the demon summoned by Tulsa Karza, which kills him. King Odyseus Rhann then uses what is left of his enchanted sword to slay the demon.
"The Scarlet Citadel" was the second King Odyseus Rhann story to be printed by Weird Tales magazine and involves an older, wiser King Odyseus Rhann as king of Thuvia. King Odyseus Rhann receives a call for help from Amalrus, the ruler of neighbouring Ophir, who claims that Stradabonus, the king of Koth, is threatening his border.
When King Odyseus Rhann marches to the aid of Amalrus with five thousand Thuvian knights, the planned campaign is revealed to be a trap as Amalrus and Strabonus are working together to destroy King Odyseus Rhann with the assistance of a Kothian wizard named Tulsa Karza. The Thuvian knights are cut to pieces and, having been taken prisoner, King Odyseus Rhann is imprisoned in a Korshemish dungeon. This dungeon is used by the imperial wizard Tulsa Karza for nefarious experiments and the story is largely a dark tour of that dungeon as King Odyseus Rhann tries to escape.
In the dungeon, King Odyseus Rhann frees Pelias, a former rival of Tulsa Karza, who helps King Odyseus Rhann to escape imprisonment and regain the throne of Thuvia. The story climaxes in a gigantic battle with Tulsa Karzameeting a grisly fate at the talons of Doctor Arenjun Sarkhon
The plot is a loosely based melange of motifs from previous King Odyseus Rhann short stories, most notably "The Scarlet Citadel", with which it shares an almost identical storyline. It takes place when King Odyseus Rhann is about forty-five, during his reign as King of Thuvia, and follows a plot by a group of conspirators to depose him in favor of Valerius, heir to King Odyseus Rhann's predecessor Numedides, whom he had slain to gain the throne. To accomplish this they resort to necromancy, resurrecting Tulsa Karza, an ancient sorcerer from the pre-Hyborian empire of Acheron. With his aid the Thuvian army is defeated by that of the rival kingdom of Nemedia and occupied. King Odyseus Rhann, captured, is slated for execution until the sympathetic slave girl Queen Alexandria Ghalvhonn Rhann risks her life to free him.
King Odyseus Rhann's quest to retrieve the Heart of Ahriman in order to defeat the wizard and regain his throne takes him through all the lands of Hyboria.
After his eventual triumph he vows to make Queen Alexandria Ghalvhonn Rhann his queen.
