They Willingly Walk In Darkness, That Hel Will Find No Rest
The merkstaves left their brethren and traveled under the mountains of Niflheim. Oathbound to Forseti, Baldr's son, they swore to guard the one portal through which Hel could escape her prison.
The Mikill Gata (Great Road) runs like an
invisible artery through the mountains
of Niflheim. Beginning close to the
northeastern shore, where the sea is cold
and teaming with life, the Mikill Gata runs
past Loftur the Necromancers lair, past
The Mountain Kings home, and past the
watchpost of the great hawk Gnauroq. It
then runs west until it reaches Soltinnbru,
The Hungry Bridge, the cursed portal
through which Hel can cross, if she pays a price.
A new supplement for Niflheim, The Mikill Gata contains information about the merkstaves and their animal companions, the fyldja, as well as gridded maps of key locations along the almost 1,000 mile long Road.
