An account of my journey to a new life.

Prompt curtsy of Fandango

Atrikd I wonder if you will ever read my letter or experience the feeling when one first sights land after a long sea journey. Dawnrider carried us safely to this new land. I believe that our craft has magic in her timbers. The crossing that we undertook, carried us across the ocean you know as the sea of the northern lands or Vestrhaf. Vestrhaf tested our resolve, even if we did not see any of the fabled monsters. The ocean itself was monster enough for us aboard Dawnraider. So many waves higher than our mast crashed aboard, repeatedly swamping our provisions, so that our food became rancid and our water brackish. But now we have reached a new land where we hope to settle and start a new life. Our seer believes that we will succeed and that a mighty cities will one day grow from our labours. Dear wife the Dawnraider is to return to Nidaros. Dawnraider’s captain hopes to fetch more who wish to emigrate and leave the tainted land of Nidaros. He says that those who follow the old ways will leave and come here. Please come Atrikd.

    The story has a legend like feel, something about a medieval voyage to an ancient land. I googled Nidaros too, very interesting!

      Thank you Piyali, a story based on a legend is just what I was hoping to write,
