Was he a hero, a racist, a failed father, or a selfish leader? You decide which opinion to believe and what to dismiss.
Near the mountain's entrance live the walrus people called the Tusklings. They trade and house expeditions, but stay a mystery to the illustrious foreigners nonetheless. And then there are rumors of a people living even deeper in the mountains, guarding treasures unheard of...
