The Homely Oddity is a location added in v4 of Echo of the Wilds. The Homely Oddity location features a television and several other items familiar to the player.
When the television is inspected, the player appears in a living room. In this room, the player's level of hydration drops rapidly, and the player can go back to the wilds by inspecting to the television again. The room also contains several Junky Meals. Once a player has returned to the wilds, the face of the Haunting Shadow will appear within the television, and prevent you from going inside until another visit to this domain.
