After recuperating from the stela battle and giving Hansel a fitting funeral, the Knights of the Hart took Shuriken’s information about the “Horn of Dungar” and decided to visit Norway in search of the Artifact. Haldor was originally from the region and was curious as to who “Dungar” was as well as why he was mistaken for him in the VX. They sailed to Myre, Norway and outfitted themselves with winter wear, as the Northern Norway October was as cold as American winter. Their first encounter with Ayslish magic was a strange portal spell that warped them to a secret hideaway, where they fought a group of mercenaries, before finding their way out. Itzcoatl obtained a protective armband from the spoils.
They were provided housing, as roughly 1/2 the population of Myre had either fled or died in the invasion, and unoccupied cottages were plenty. They decided to rest for the night and make the 4 hour trip to Nyksund the following day. In the middle of the night, they were awakened to the sounds of metal clanking and discovered a mercenary force approaching Myre. The Knights jumped into action, catching the invaders by surprise, but only then did they notice the invaders were many more than they first thought. The fight was over 3-to-1 in favor of the invaders.
