Songs and Sagas

We were cast out. Our brethren struck our names from memory. Guided by gods and spirits, we stand firm in our conviction. Alone, we are called to venture beyond the mist. To chart the land. To cleanse the shadows. Along the way, we pay our respects to ancestors and deities. 

And one day, all shall hear the echoes of our destinies fulfilled as they ring out in songs and sagas.
