Chapter 1: Only The Sun Has Stopped
The sun has stopped in the sky. You are on a caravan journey on a seemingly endless day. Upon reaching the settlement, enter the hall and immediately begin your first battle. Read the on-screen tutorial and become familiar with the basics of the combat system. Focus on movement, attacking strength, abilities, and willpower. Use the information to defeat the enemies in battle.
Encounter Eirik, and chat with him about helping the settlement. Follow him by selecting the marketplace on the location’s overview. Be generous and pay Hadd off with some food money to obtain information. Kindly bring your meeting with Eirik to a close and travel to the mead house in the center of town.
Barge into the hall and begin to battle the drunken men. First, choose the starting position of your heroes. Begin the battle when you are ready, and strategically neutralize the soldiers. It is best to simultaneously lower the strength of everyone rather than focus on one person at a time. If you are not doing enough damage, remember to lower their shields first.
Speak to Eirik and agree to do one more favor for him. Travel to the docks to stall the arriving guests. After speaking to the old friends, invite them to caravan with you and join Hakon in the mead house for a few drinks. Finally, pay a visit to the prince and awkwardly try to be friendly towards him.
At dawn, depart with the rest of the caravan and leave the settlement. Use the low-risk traveling as an opportunity to relax and drink. In the morning, meet up with the fellow travelers and explore the world map. You will soon find yourself in the camp. Take a moment to become familiar with it. Here, you can rest, upgrade your allies, and train. When you are ready, leave the camp and continue traveling.
Speak to the peasant about the missing cattle. You will soon be interrupted and thrown into battle. Learn about deflections and the importance of attacking shields. Defeat the dredge enemies in battle. Take your time and lower their shields, then inflict devastating blows to their strength. Regroup with your allies after.
