The Great Hall of the Aett, rang to the sound of mirth & merriment as the Wolves celebrated the final hours before commencement of the Great Hunt.
As time had progressed towards this momentous occasion, each warrior had spent some time away from the others, preparing his chosen weapons of war. As the time came closer the Jarls (spelling?) gathered to them their warriors, ready to stand and be pledged to the cause.
A sudden great pealing sound echoed around the hall, as one of the Wolf Priests, beat the great sun-disc of Russ, calling for silence.
As one the voices of those present drops to a hush, the only sound heard throughout the hall is the crackling & spitting of the logs burning in the hearths.
The Rune Priest, known as Rhapp the Harmonious, or Rune Priest Rhapsody, due to the melodies he used in his reciting of the sagas. Stepped forward and struck the ground 3 times, as was his way.
“In a very short time we shall embark on our fifth great challenge. We will bring light to the darkness which has shrouded the Imperium of late.
I wish you all the very best of luck in your endeavours. In 3 months Terran standard from now, I hope to see you all here in the Great Hall, where we hall feast to our victories and lament our fallen warriors.
During these 3 months, I expect that you will all create mighty sagas, which over the fullness of time will be recorded in the histories of the Fang.
May the Allfather smile upon your endeavours.
Go now, as if the fangs of Morkai are snapping at your heels. Make Russ proud”.
As the venerable Rune Priest stepped back, a new figure emerged from the shadows .
The great craggy features, of Kieran Coldheart came into the light.
“Before you now lay the gates to the strategium. Just now they are locked, but soon they will open and we will be permitted to begin. I would urge you to go to the Strategium and become familiar with the rules of the challenge. If you are unsure of anything, make your concerns known and advice shall be sent to you.
For some, it is merely the beginning and your legend will start here today.
Fully 1/3 of our number have never taken up the challenge before, so I bid you welcome. I hope you have prepared well and heeded the lessons sent to you Remember we are all of one pack, so if you require anything to not be afraid to ask.
For others it is a chance to seek further glory and build upon your already mighty sagas, I for one look forward to creating a new chapter in the Edda of Kieran.
For a select few. You have returned to correct some ancient wrongs & to remake vows once broken. I urge you not to over extend yourself this time. Let the previous challenges be a lesson to you and to all of us here.
A boastful warrior will shout & make many vows, but a true warrior keeps them!
I thank you for coming back to the Fang, redeeming your honour and righting ancient wrongs”
All of you gathered here are now Einherjar.
You, now more than ever, represent the Space Wolves Chapter
By your pledges and your deeds, you will show the galaxy, what it is to be Fenryka!!!
Do not let me or the Great Wolf down”
Here are some words of wisdom before I wish you well on your journey ahead
