Most die never saying what they meant to. Never hearing what they should. Made mute by fear-- and deaf by pride.
Deep beneath the impossible mountain Rúnhallr is a stone of power called valdrsten. To mine its wealth one must release a foul humor which drowns our loved ones, turning them into vengeful sea-draugr. 

Against this dire history a Valkyrie named Hildr recruits dying warriors for her own secret purpose.
