Does anyone know of an informative link with descriptions of the 12 steps of the heroic cycle? Everything I find only mentions the steps, but does not describe any of them.
While we are on the subject, anyone know of a link with the archtypal characters?

Well, this names and has a quick description of the steps....
Wikipedia has an article on archetypes

'The hero with a thousand faces' by Jospeh Campell is probably what you're looking for.
Warmed-over jungian babble or a masterpiece, depending on your perspectiv.e

Yes, starting reading through Campbell's book and got too bogged down in all of his babble. I think he got lost in his own thoughts, and I wasn't in the mood to put it all together into something short and to the point. But I know other people have ;)
Thanks for the links.

I found this in an old post of mine on archetypes, it's good -
