A Tale of Fallen Elm and Scorched Ash

When Gunvald, the fierce war chief of Hammerfel, returns from the summer raids, he is met with a nightmare. His home lies in ruins, his tribe slaughtered by foreign invaders, and his beloved wife reduced to ashes by a captive dragon. Fueled by grief and rage, Gunvald vows vengeance. He and his loyal crew set out on a perilous mission, only to discover that their enemy, the mighty Wexian army, has ravaged other towns and tribes, leaving no survivors.

At the brink of despair, Gunvald faces a fateful decision: surrender or embark on a seemingly suicidal quest for revenge. It is then that they encounter Balti, a half-elf escapee from the enchanted island forest of Alfheim. Balti’s homeland, too, has fallen under the Wexian army's brutal grip. Desperate to liberate his people, Balti shares a legend of a fallen elf queen and a mystical weapon powerful enough to slay the dragon and repel the invaders.

Driven by hope and the promise of redemption, Gunvald and Balti join forces. Their journey to the tomb of the fallen queen will test their courage and reveal ancient secrets. Together, they seek the enchanted weapon that could turn the tide of war and reclaim their homes.

The Usurper Queen

In the heart of Fjord's Hold, King Sigmund Trollfeller's dynasty teeters on the brink of collapse. The kingdom watches in suspense as Indunna, the king’s eldest daughter, witnesses her family being shattered and scattered across Leifthasir, abandoned by the very crown that should protect them.

With no son to claim the throne, Sigmund's desperate attempts to secure his legacy through the marriages of his seven daughters seem futile. But Sigmund is not a king who fades quietly. Determined to etch his name in history, he resorts to ruthless tactics to secure an heir.

When an illegitimate son is born, Indunna and her sisters face exile, banished from the royal court and their home. But Indunna is no mere pawn. In the rugged lands of Hammerfel, she harnesses her skills in politics and swordplay, rallying an army to challenge the king’s forces.

The realm began as a childhood narrative, centered around the figure of Anya and her companions, and has since evolved into a multifaceted narrative spanning generations of captivating characters and intricate tales.

In Leifthasir, the echoes of ancient gods and mythical legends are woven into the fabric of everyday life. The landscape is diverse and awe-inspiring, from the towering fjords and dense, forests to the vast, treacherous seas. Each region holds its own mysteries and magic, steeped in the lore of a time when gods walked the earth and legends were born.

The capital city of Fjord's Hold, once the stronghold of Gunvald the Unifier, stands as a testament to the kingdom's former glory. Here, politics and power struggles shape the destinies of its inhabitants, with a lineage of rulers who grapple with the weight of their legacy. Amidst the king's halls and ancient structures, the city's pulse beats with the ambitions and dreams of its people.

In the mystical forest of Alfheim, the elven kingdom flourished under the guardianship of Queen Anya and Prince Rathuell. Entrusted by the god Freyr, they ruled with wisdom and grace until the Wexian invasion shattered their peace. The forest, now a place of both beauty and sorrow, holds the secrets of the past and the hope for future redemption.

The sea is a lifeline and a battlefield for the people of Leifthasir. Crews of Vikes navigate these waters, their lives intertwined with the rhythms of the tides and the call of adventure. Their journeys are marked by raids, battles, and quests when the summer waters are safe from ice and storms.

Even for those who do not believe magic permeates the land, from the predictions of the future told by Völva priestesses to the magic of the elder races from long ago.
