‘Beygja’ By Scott Reed

Nameless lords fight over ancient lands, imagined insults, or the glory of the raid. Rað only ever wanted his life to continue as it had, but that time is over. An army has amassed outside his village, and now Rað has been called to fight. Hope lies upon the Savior, a mail-clad warrior who has come to lead Rað’s people to victory. Here, in this unknown place at this unknown battle, Rað’s Affliction began.
