Story 53 : The Bastard Son© 2016
Occasionally even the best of men can make the smallest of mistakes. But sometimes these mistakes grow overtime, and come back to haunt you !
King Alfrekr of Ranrike sent his mistress Eydis, and his bastard son, to the Land of the Rus. Out of sight, out of mind, was his thinking. However, Oski, his exiled son, has grown into a fine young man..... a skilled warrior, and a great leader. With the prodding of his mother Eydis, a woman scorned, he is now ready to avenge the dishonor that was thrust upon his mother and himself, and claim the crown of Ranrike for himself.
Two great forces stand between Oski, and the throne that he believes belongs to him. One is the Ranrike army lead by King Alfrekr and his legitimate son Gormr. The other is Great Odin himself !
But will Odin side with his old friend Alfrekr, or will he decide to support the great warrior Oski. Find out here beginning Sunday, April 23, 2016.
