That's How the Cookie CrumblesAs you’re walking through the Village of Skalaness in the dead of night, you spot a large figure sat upon the crops edge in defeat.
You’re not quite sure what compelled you to engage in the giant beast that had its figure shielded by the deepest of darkness but even so you spoke, “Everything alright?”
The figure turned its head slowly, piercing blue eyes slicing through the darkness and burning into your soul. Immediately you were filled with regret as you defensively took two steps backwards. The massive figure rises, and turns as it approaches you slowly, each step is proud as it sends a shockwave within the ground so thunderous you can feel it within your own pads. Just as it steps within the light you realize the figure is no other than Mani Mani
, a welcoming, familiar and friendly face, and his demeanor? It immediately changes the moment he recognizes you. The monstrous titan lights up as his golden retriever energy floods out just as quickly as the many falls within Ulfrheim that bursts free of the Islands icy grip.
Mani Mani exclaims with excitement, his paws now patter impatiently, “A favor if you will? I will make it worth your while,”
Mani throws a satchel of various currencies before your paws, one glance inside tempts you before even hearing his request. Mani nods his head towards Haldor’s Pass, its peaks just visible upon the moonlit night, “The Pass, within the highest peaks if you follow your nose there is a merchant's cart known as The Helbiscus Crumble. This very cart is owned by a dear friend of mine, Theo!”
Mani groans dramatically, “Fenrir has asked me to guard the crop upon The Maw last minute, an order I must take, but my dear friend Theo, he has spent the entire day baking me a treat I had intended to fetch on this fine evening.”
Everything was becoming more and more clear, but Mani breaks your train of thought as he hones in, releasing a whisper within your ear, “Helgraham Snaps!”
He declares, causing you to retreat, your neck now arched towards your back to avoid his embrace. “Seek out The Helbiscus Crumble within Haldor’s Pass and return with my order of Helgraham Snaps and all of this coin? Well it can be yours.”
You were headed to Bardr anyways, and so you could take the long way through Haldor’s Pass, into Bardr and then hook back to Skalaness and drop off Mani Mani’s Helgraham Snaps. Three birds, one ax! You agree to help the large curly beast, and in doing so he immediately ushers you off into the direction of Haldor’s Pass. Just as you’re nearly out of earshot you hear Mani shout out, “Mind the fiery balls of lava!!”
You’re sure to shout back reassuring him you will and only when your words tapir off his words weigh that much heavier. Wait? Fiery balls of what? When you return Mani Mani will be so please, so much so he is bound to write you a love letter or two.
your Felvarg stood before Theodores cart, The Helbiscus Crumble fetching Mani Mani's Helgrahm Snaps while fiery balls of lava fly overhead.
