GullinburstiGreens burst through the once frozen forest floor, Heidrun takes a deep breath in preparation for spring. The once dull trees wake and take a drink from the Island as they welcome the warmer temperatures that will soon arrive. For the first time in weeks a mist of rain washes over the winding passages of Heidrun in waves with a hunger for heat.
You trot along the beaten path as the snap of a twig causes you to turn a shade of defensive. You gaze within the darkness of The Pass but see nothing. For days now you have felt as though somefel or something had been following you, yet even now you have yet to see any living breathing thing to determine just what pair of eyes were burning a hole through your back. You check for Freyja’s satchel within your own satchel to be reassured it still safely sits within it, and much to your relief it is there, right where you left it. Freyja has tasked you with delivering this very satchel to Ylva, who was meant to meet you in Hvalsey. What the satchel held was unknown however, a detail Freyja deemed need to know. What Freyja also failed to mention was Hvalsey stretched the entirety of Heidrun, and so this quick trip had turned into a week-long trek in search of Ylva.
You know all too well that reaching Heidrun’s meadow meant Hvalsey no longer carried on, and with only a few miles left you grow uncertain Ylva will show. With some thought you realize since entering Heidrun you had not seen another soul, and while these areas were usually scarce for travelers, it was odd to be entirely barren as it was. It was too late to turn around now, as Heidrun’s meadow broke into view up ahead. Your gallop roared to a halt, and with a spin back in the direction you came from, your concerns were made valid given Ylva was nowhere to be seen. What now?
Another snap of a twig behind you once more causes you to spin briskly, except this time when you do you're suddenly face to face with the revered Gullinbursti. The wild boar stands proudly, square before you. The flora and growths upon his back glow as steam can be seen rolling from his nostrils. His brute figure is surrounded by spring and where his hoofs were placed the snow had melted and within the melted patch flora burst to life. He clearly wants something, his eyes locked upon your satchel. Your eyes grow wide with concern, the last thing anyfel wanted was to engage in conflict with a worshiped beast such as Gullinbursti. It was a death sentence to attack back, even in self defense. Do you unveil Freyja’s satchel to Gullinbursti in an attempt to appease him? Or do you stick to your plan of delivery and instead try to calm the crazy that has filled the usually calm beast's eye.
Objective:Depict your Felvarg face to face with Gullinbursti as he proudly stands before you. The snow beneath him will be melted and filled with greens and floral, while snow still clutches onto the Island.
