Eivor visited the local seer for advice on her visions.
- Offerings for Valka
2 chickens from Snaefrid to annoint her crops
1 sheep from Thora for her child's blood-blessing
1 goat from Dag for more skin salve
Eivor left the altar and entered the Seer's hut, interrupting a ritual.
- Valka: Hamu-ram... Hamu-ram...
- Eivor: Valka?
- Valka: Hush. I need silence to hear the songs of nature. Hamu-ram... Hamu-ram...
Eivor noticed Valka's mother sitting in the corner.
- Eivor: Svala?
- Svala: She gives praises, and she is greeted.
- Valka: For your hearing, I harken, O Ancient Ones! Great Odin, great Freyja, I give you thanks for your gift of seidr (magic).
- Svala: She gives thanks, and she is blessed.
- Valka: Eivor, it has been some time. What brings you so far to see me?
- Eivor: I... I have come for your advice. On a private matter.
- Valka: Come.
The two made themselves comfortable.
- Eivor: Is your mother well?
- Valka: Her mind is a jumble. She speaks to spirits. I fear her final winter has come. But she has me. Now let us speak to your needs.
- Eivor: I have had a vision. A powerful vision. It may have been my battle lust, or a delirium caused by the cold but...
- Valka: Describe it for me.
- Eivor: After seventeen years, I saw my father's axe again. And when I touched it, the vision came on fast. There was a wolf, howling and fierce. And then a figure. A graybeard in a cloak with a single eye. He bid me follow him.
- Valka: Ah! The High One! He calls to you. Perhaps he means to speak with you. Deliver a message. Only through seidr will you see more clearly and unravel the threads that sit tangled upon your mind. This will not take long.
Valka turned to her table and began mixing ingredients.
- Eivor: What are you brewing?
- Valka: An elixir to loosen your hugr (mind) and unwind your thoughts. You will enter a waking sleep and journey to the world of dreams.
Valka raised a finger to emphasize her next point.
- Valka: It may confuse or disorient you, but you must take note of all you see.
Valka finished the elixir and handed it to Eivor.
- Valka: Drink... if you seek true understanding.
Eivor consumed the elixir and collapsed entering the land of her dreamscape. She awoke on Valka's floor.
- Eivor: (groan) Hm? I saw nothing, Valka. Felt nothing.
Eivor exited the hut.
- Skuld: Havi! Havi! Havi!
- Eivor: Do I walk among the dead?
Eivor ascended the snowy mountain.
- Eivor: Sigurd...? Sigurd. Brother... When did you arrive?
Eivor saw a wolf but it ran away as she approached it. Eivor on and saw the cloaked Odin and the Nornir weaving fate.
- Eivor: What is this?
- Urðr: Hrm-mah-mr-mah, hrm-mah-mr-mah... Hrm-mah-mr-mah, hrm-mah-mr-mah...
Eivor continued up the mountain, meeting a wolf guarding a doorway. She entered and heard Sigurd.
- Sigurd: (scream)
- Eivor: Sigurd? Brother? What is this?
The snow storm cleared partially to reveal Sigurd was missing his right arm at the elbow.
- Sigurd: There was no other way, Havi. Our fates are fixed.
- Eivor: Sigurd!
- Eivor: Sigurd! What has... what has happened?
Sigurd reappeared in front of Eivor.
- Sigurd: This was not for you, Havi.
Eivor reached out to Sigurd only for him to be yanked backwards by an invisible force.
- Eivor: No!
Eivor awoke just as a giant wolf approached from the mist.
- Eivor: Ahhh! Ah!
- Valka: Steady, Eivor. It is Valka. I am here.
- Eivor: Gods, I thought I... wh-what was that?
- Valka: Tell me everything.
- Eivor: I-I-I was on a mountain in a violent blizzard, climbing towards the summit, following a wolf.
- Valka: Hm hm.
("Odin and the Nornir were there.")
- Eivor: I saw Odin. And the Nornir, spinning the threads of fate. They were watching me.
- Valka: Hm. Not watching. They were showing you the way forward. Your life. Your path. What lies before you, and where it ends.
("The wolf beckoned.")
- Eivor: And the wolf was eager for my attention. As if it were... beckoning me to follow.
- Valka: You are the Wolf-Kissed, fated to carry its mark for life. In this case, it might represent your ambition... or your fear.
("Odin's Hall opened to me.")
- Eivor: I saw the gates to Odin's hall of slain champions. They opened for me.
- Valka: Shades of Valhalla. For which you are destined.
- Eivor: I do not know what else to say. M-my memories are faint, hazy.
- Valka: Did you reach the summit of this mountain?
- Eivor: I did, yes. Sigurd was there. Wounded, in pain. His fighting arm was missing. Then the wolf reappeared, the size of a dragon, twisted and terrible. It fixed its eyes on me and struck! Then I awoke.
- Valka: The gods favor you, Eivor. They always have. You will have your glory, and you will earn your place in Valhalla. But these portents carry a darker truth. The missing arm, the trail of blood, the beast. You will betray your brother, Sigurd. That is the meaning of your vision.
- Eivor: That cannot be right. I would never betray Sigurd. He's my brother, my family.
- Valka: The Nornir have spoken, and this is their message.
- Eivor: No, this is wrong. Or you misunderstand. That cannot be right!
- Valka: You will betray Sigurd.
- Eivor: Odin fought against his fate. It can be done.
Eivor left the hut with more questions than answers.
Eivor sought the advice of the seer Valka and learned that her visions meant she would eventually betray Sigurd.
You can visit Hildesvini's Crag cave on your way to Valka and find there five snowdrops which can only be collected during this memory. Using Odin's sight will help you to find them. However they seem to have no impact on the mission and will remain in your inventory after completing it. Most likely this quest item was supposed to be used in this memory but was ommited eventually.
