SAGA 3: Out in the cold
1 - 3 February 2019
Motu Moana Scout Camp
The Skyldings fared well in the land of the Vanir, home to the four Stags of the seasons. They freed Durathror the Spring Stag, from eternity in a misty prison, and Duneyrr the Winter Stag from the icy elixir that the Jotunnbound were using to poison her mind. The winner of The Wild Hunt, Narla Hallastir, now serves as the Stags’ champion.
But all was not so well when the elves and elfsworn who serve Triandel, councillor of the Ljosalfar, graced the forests with their army. There was but one demand upon their lips, that the baby Peska Svaatalisbarn be handed over in the name of peace. Rumour of some affliction or doomed fate hovers over this child, that they are destined to bring a great change that much is certain. The army was thwarted, and the babe returned to her mother’s arms, but questions of what fate this child will bring to the Skyldings are abound round the Longhouse fires.
With the blessing of the four Stags, the Skyldings have set forth in Elivigar once again, this time to Jotunnheim, land of the ice giants and home to those who serve them. They quest to strike a fatal blow against their enemy for all they have wrought upon the clan of Skyldingheim, and for the great evil they have brought to the nine worlds. Many that were lost are rumoured to be prisoners, slaves or worse to these blue marked foes, amongst them Erik Eliasson, once Jarl of the Skyldings, and Garryn Balliasson, once Claw of the Ulfhednar.
Also amongst their foes dwells the ancient enemy, the Wylfings, who have forsaken the gods and joined those bound to the Jotnar. Amongst them, they gained the power to break the years of peace and strike the fated blow upon Skyldingheim that began this tale of woe, and their bloodshed is demanded as payment for that crime. The fate of those left behind still lies in mystery, as the residents of Elivigar quest forward through the Mists for glory and honour, and one day to find a pathway home.
