Greetings, Heroes of the Realms,
I was pleased to see you again at the festivities you held at the north border of Rhiassa, The Gilded Lion and Silver Branch Summer Festival. I was pleased as well for you to have met my trusty Saurian Steed, Buttercup. In the years since you saved Norlund from total destruction the benevolent stewardship provided by Tychasaurus has allowed Midgard to prosper, and travel across its wide, fertile plains is mostly accomplished on smaller two-legged species of dinosaurs like Buttercup.
As I mentioned to you when we spoke, while Norlund was ultimately saved through your intervention, right now Yggdrasil, which connects together all of the lands of Norlund, is growing amuck. With Midgard and the other worlds made anew, the ancient tree no longer understands how to interconnect them all and as such, is tearing the lands apart with its gargantuan roots and branches as it tries.
Earlier this year I sent you all instructions on how to obtain your own Saurians Steeds for this quest. Hopefully that is something you were able to do. Their tenacity and their speed will be necessary for your success.
We have communed with the new Aesir and Vanir that have blessed our worlds and we understand what must be done to finally put all of Norlund at ease. You must travel the breadth of Norlund and through different gates enter into the roots of Yggdrasill itself. Once there you must direct its growth so that it can understand how to connect to all the worlds that you remade and stop its inadvertent destruction of our lands.
It pains me to ask anything more of all of you, now that you have given us so much. In the true sense of the word, we owe you everything. But it will all be for naught without this final step. So I beseech you with unending faith in your resourcefulness, your might, and your goodwill.
Strength and Honor,
Baron Ulric of the Jomsvikings
