• Placeholder • The Vorkund Experiments

The cities and villages of Melrath are as varied and diverse as they come. The capital of Raelia is the the jewel of this western kingdom, playing host to a merchants, artisans, Aesir priests, as well as a cut throat political landscape dominated by the nobles of Raelia. To the south in the depths of the Myrkvior Forest lies Melrath's second largest, and oldest city, Fensalir. Here people have learned to live alongside spirits and the natural world by maintaining their loyalty to traditions laid down the first Melrathi. To the east lies the small fishing village of Noatun, and to the western mountains rests the Mer city of Verimeer, the brewing town of Alivilda and the alpine village Vormund.

The Vorkund Experiments


The Vorkund Experiments
31 Ashan 721

The letter from Ashling's mother Sol'ange had arrived a bit earlier in Ashan. Ashling had decided to ride to Fensalir and find out what was up but instead she was in Vorkund. Not even in her wildest imagination had she figured that she would end up as a guest in the house of Biarne Slatersen and his assistant Berry Buxwood. A small accident on the road had caused this situation. Ashling's horse Granegal had injured a leg, not by much, but enough to make it best to not ride on her.

Ashling had been leading the mare along the road and looking for a place to make camp for the night when Biarne and "Buxom" had appeared in the company of a group of Ragnari. All of them had been on horseback and headed to Vorkund. The Ragnari had immediately decided that they must save Ashling. No debate. They had a spare horse she could ride on. Granegal could walk beside it without having to carry anything. Even as the soldiers had told her this they had moved Ashling's saddle bags to the spare horse. It would be better to stay in a tavern in Vorkund than under a tree in the forest, wouldn't it? And Granegal would be safer in a stable where no Grendels or other predators could attack the horse.

But, when they had arrived in Vorkund, they had found stables for the horses but the taverns had been full. Hence. Biarne Slatersen had offered to house the Ragnari and Ashling alike. His house was big enough for a few guests. No problems. In lack of other options, Ashling had accepted this and so, moved into a guest room on the upper floor.
