SAGA 4: sEEKING THE GODS
9-11 August 2019, Camp Morley, Clarks Beach, Auckland
Elivigar sails on through the swirling mists to Asgard, home of the gods, afterlife of the brave, and foreboding peril.
With Summer’s blessing on Jotunnheim, the Skyldings found old friends and ancient foes. Triumphantly smashing the Jotunnbound of Utgardr, and melting the everliving ice in the hearts of their servants, they freed the Varg from generations of slavery. The fortress now lies in their hands and their Varg-blooded children, and they have offered a safe haven for any Skyldings who need a place to land.
Despite their victory all is not well in the nine worlds.
The fate of Skyldingheim itself was revealed to lie with the self proclaimed “rightful Jarl of the Skylds” Olga Solveigsdotter. To protect her people, the eldest ‘Star of Myrra’ has allied with the ancient enemy - the Wylfings. She is the champion of those left behind, a broken people under the yoke of the Wylfings, and she has branded the Skyldings of Elivigar cowards. Now the curse from the dying lips of Thrain has fallen upon the home of our heroes, who chose to quest forward over returning home in hopes of a brighter future for Skyldingheim.
Elsa Brynasdotter of the Wylfings, and her son Jarl Geir Elsasson, are itching for revenge. They have claimed the child Wylf, son of Arnvi Synsdotter, rightfully theirs, and called for his capture at the last stand of Vargheim. Their thirst will not be quenched until the rivers run with Skylding blood.
Fighting at their side came the elves under Triandel, high councillor of the Ljosalfar, leading her army from the front. No blade or arrow seemed to blemish her golden skin, as she waded through the Skylding ranks, seeking out the babe Peska, now grown, and named “Skylda” for the runes that are mysteriously inscribed upon her skin.
Skylda herself, the child of prophecy, stood fearless on the front line with her people. An ancient tablet newly recovered from some ruins on Jotunnheim revealed the destiny that lay on her shoulders, and names the Skyldings “Aesir’s true servants”, those with the power to change the “fortune and fate” of the nine worlds.
That is if the Skyldings of Elivigar can survive the doomed vision pronounced from the lips of Aelfhun the seer to all she looked upon:
“If you go to Asgard, you will die.”
But go they must, for the Valkyrie Astrid heralded that the gods themselves have awoken on Asgard, and the time is at hand for their true servants to join them.
