glimmering light beyond the veil
reaching the edge of the horizon
unseen shores where he set sail
noble mind was enlightened
notable wisdom, his new dominion
runes of power, to mortals provided

Asvald takes off the dagger from his belt and in his left hand he grabs an apple from a reed basket on the table, chipping off a green succulent morsel from it as he
He let himself float along the watery alley bound in tall dark walls of stone, a narrow canyon submerged in Aegir's veil. He swam to the surface to draw breath, when, out of a sudden, something grasped his foot, a hand trying to drag him under! He startled in sheer surprise glancing beneath and saw a woman-like creature dashing away from him, a naked shape covered only in floating brown hair. A nykr<i>
