Skannersfjord lays far beond the northern waves. It is grim and frostbitten kingdom conquered by Evrik Grunelander three generations ago. Recently, events have disturbed the relative peace of the settlers; the beast stalks the land and demands blood sacrifice. Those who survived the encounter can tell of skulking tall wolf, emerging from black mists when the sun sets. Not many people can tell this, anyways. They say the beast cannot be killed by mortal hand, but the wolf-spear of great hero, Ulfnarr, will put it to rest.
