HallsteinThe quakes in Helvalla may have ceased, but the damage that they have done seems to know no bounds. The island of Ulfrheim weeps, weather becoming wild and unpredictable as a show of their islands scars. The land seemed to still be recovering, a ripple effect of the massive amounts of damage that the world shaking earthquakes caused. Everyfel was praying to whomever would heed their cries, begging and hoping that the new moon would bring forth the change that they so desperately needed. And so, every Felvarg waited on baited breath as at last the new moon made its ascent. But the moon did not bring them peace, in fact she carried a storm unlike anything the island had seen before. A winter storm struck Ulfrheim, freezing everything in its path as it ravaged the lands below in the middle of the night. Felvargs awoke to the wicked howling of the wind, their idle fires no longer enough to keep the cold at bay. Farmers are left to scramble to their fields in a meagar attempt to save their crops, fisherfels raced to their lines and boats, pulling and tying everything down so that they didn't lose their entire livelihood. In a matter of hours, ice floats started to form over the fierce waves of the Hungry Wolf, pushing the chilled ice towards the shores of the Village of Hearth. Massive walls of ice boxed the villagers in, separating them from the lifeblood that was the ocean. The ice formed so rapidly upwards that it tore anything that dared stand in its path, tearing boats asunder like they were nothing but a mere stick. Splintered boards from the damaged ship stuck out of the ice wall like thorns, crashing into anything else that lay undamaged. Docks themselves were severed from their roots, splinters flying into the nearby village. Some boats had managed to stay intact, but were swallowed by the wall of ice, remaining completely encased inside. Unfortunately, the villagers of Hearth were not the only beings to be affected by this barricade of ice. Hallstein had been resting on the village's shore just as the storm hit, leaving him stranded between walls of ice on the beach. Panic fills the tusked beast as he is cut off from his home, his deep bellow making the walls around him quake. His paddle like tail slams against the beach, trying to make the walls come tumbling down, but his efforts were futile. Not caring about his own safety, he startled to run at his barrier of thick ice, slamming his massive body against it. Shards of ice and wood crumbled around him, scratching his thick skin as they fell. The torn boat planks threatened to spear the beast as he continued to careen himself against the wall, desperate to return home. Already an alarm was sent to assist the villagers, but a new one went out just as quickly. Efforts have now turned to helping bring Hallstein back to Hongerige, before he harmed himself -- or Hearth. If he managed to crash one of the ice walls down, it would collapse on Hearth, flattening it into the frozen ground without warning.
Objective:Depict your Felvarg trying to safely break down part of the ice in order to allow Hallstein to return to the ocean. Be careful, shards of ruined boats stick out every which way, some too unstable to even support the weight of a Felvarg.
