London confused Oyster, Travelcard & London Pass

Britain - boards.cruisecritic.com
I having a little trouble getting the Oyster Card & Travelcard straight in my mind.

I think the London Pass is a card that prepays entrance fees to various sites and may allow discounts other places and has no connection to Oyster & Travel Cards. It may or may not be worth it depending on what we intend to visit.

Oyster Card allows travel on buses and tube etc and has a maximum amount that will be charged to card in any one day. You purchased card and "top off" to add transport funding.

So where does the travel card come in? I was told that you could add travelcard to oyster card and that was pretty much where I got confused. I've read the transport London page and I'm still confused.

TIA for explaining. Helping this confused, first time international traveler, from the midwest where we don't have tubes and multiple modes of public transportation, make sense of it all. Planning to be in London 6 days if that makes any difference.
