The Greek Underworld

Back from the dead?  Not in the Underworld, where the ghosts of the wicked go to Tartarus, a volcanic torture field of lava.  The mild ones go to the Asphodel Fields, a rather boring spot.  Elysium is where the awesome ones are bound for.  How to get there?  The river taxi of Charon.  And it’s ruled by Hades king of the Underworld.  So if you conk, be at least good enough for the Asphodel Fields.
