Eivor began to track down her old enemy, Gorm Kjotvesson, by investigating every one of his camps in Vinland.
After she talked to Olav the Unlucky, Eivor traded the goods he gave her with a nearby merchant for a weapon. Before leaving, she spoke to Olav again.
- Eivor: Olav, tell me about your falling out with Gorm.
- Olav: He caught me stealing from his locked chests. I wished to trade with the villagers here.
- Eivor: Then he gave you a good thrashing, did he?
- Olav: Yes, yes. Now I stay in my safe place.
Eivor left the village and set off to check the camps installed by Gorm.
- Eivor: I can hike into the woods, straight for Gorm... or gather raw materials and trade for better weapons.
As she began to run, Eivor kept her mind focused.
- Eivor: Gorm is in these woods somewhere. I will find you, Gorm. No matter how long it takes.
However, Eivor was soon attacked. Wounded to the point of near-death, Eivor collapsed, only to wake up back at the village of Karonhiakèn:iate'.
- Eivor: Gods, hurting all over ... thought I was dead.
Eivor was visited by one of the village leaders.
- Karonhiaktátie': Tó:tek, órie. Tóka' enhsà:iake' kí:ken, entewa'serón:nenhte' tsi saronhiá:ken. Sà:iak. (Don't talk, friend. These berries will ease your pain. Eat them.)
- Eivor: You want me to ... to eat these?
Karonhiaktátie nodded yes. As Eivor ate a bowl of elderberries, Karonhiaktátie sat down next to her.
- Karonhiaktátie': Kahrhakwé:kon iotahión:ni ne ken' niwahiò:ten's. (The woods are full of these fruits.)
After some time, Eivor walked out of a hut and talked to Olav.
- Eivor: Our friends healed me with their berries. I am grateful.
- Olav: Yes, yes. And elderberries have a good taste, too. And good for you.
- Eivor: I feel much better. Do these elderberries grow wild around here?
- Eivor: Yes, yes. All through the land, here and there.
After recovering, Eivor put her mind on track.
- Eivor: Where are you hiding, Gorm?
Before leaving, Eivor spoke to Olav once more.
- Eivor: How did you come here, Olav? Are you a prisoner here?
- Olav: No, no! The cave is my safe place. Safe from Gorm and his anger. Safe from the talking crystal.
- Eivor: I see.
- Olav: Watching, always watching Olav! The talking crystal!
Eivor resumed her hunt for Gorm. She soon saw a camp in the woods.
- Eivor: A camp near the village. Gorm could be there.
Eivor arrived at Steinnhus Camp.
- Eivor: One of Gorm's camps. I might learn where he's hiding. Or find some resources at the least.
After dealing with the men at this camp, Eivor came across a note and some resources.
- Muddy Note:
Heading to other camp.
Remember the code.
Steinnhus, Brúhamarr, Hvallgrof, and Narfljot.
Eivor spoke to herself.
- Eivor: One step closer.
As she explored Vinland, Eivor found herself at Brúhamarr Outpost. As she dealt with the guards and found more resources, Eivor discovered another note.
- Torn Note:
Listen, rats and dogs. Gorm ventured deeper into the woods.
If you spot anything strange, alert your captain.
Any slacking in duty will result in death.
Eivor talked softly aloud.
- Eivor: Gorm must be near. His doom has come.
As she fought with more guards, Eivor recovered another note among their personal effects.
- Bloodstained Note:
We have found a more promising dig site, deeper inland.
It is to the northwest.
We are headed there now.
Eivor continued on her path and found Hvallgrof Outpost.
- Eivor: The leader of this bridge cliff camp may know Gorm's whereabouts.
In the Outpost, she encountered several strong warriors.
- Eivor: Why is this place so heavily guarded? What are you hiding Gorm?
Dealing with guards and obtaining resources, Eivor caught sight of another note.
- Crumpled Note:
The glass ball does nothing in this cave.
I must travel further north to the next site.
Too much time wasted digging these damn holes.
Eivor travelled north and arrived at Narfljot Camp. There, Eivor caught sight of Gorm yelling orders.
- Gorm: Keep digging, you beardless dogs!
- Norse Man 1: You heard the man! Move those shovels!
- Gorm: Power beyond measure awaits us, men! A mountain of silver to the first digger to open the way!
- Norse Man 2: Gorm, we have found nothing but a gate we cannot open.
- Gorm: I shall call upon our ally. Heed me, Gorm of the Order. Ancient Ones, I summon you! Speak to me, you stone-dwelling god-woman!
The crystal ball spoke.
- Juno: In time, what once was, shall be again.
- Gorm: What does that gibberish mean? Gods burn it all. Keep digging, mules. Power beyond measure awaits. Power beyond measure.
- Eivor: Gorm Kjotvesson.
Eivor followed Gorm, after his speech, as Gorm talked to one of his men.
- Norse Man 3: Gorm, did you find Olav the Unlucky?
- Gorm: I did. I locked him away for thieving. And when I return, I will see that the beasts of the woods pick at his flesh 'til his bones are clean. Nobody steals from me and walks away breathing. What news from our camps?
- Norse Man 3: In truth, they have grown quiet. Little to no word at all.
- Gorm: Hm. No matter. Focus our efforts on the dig.
- Norse Man 3: Sir, I hate to ask, but...
- Gorm: What? Spit it out.
- Norse Man 3: It may be your talking crystal is a Dwarvish trick. As in the sagas when—
- Gorm: Silence! Speak no treason against my Order. We are all-wise, all-knowing, and all-powerful. Better to cut out your own tongue than speak against the crystal goddess.
Having heard enough, Eivor snuck through the camp and assassinated Gorm.
- If Eivor was detected, she exchanged a few words with Gorm as they fought.
- Gorm: Eivor Wolf-Kissed!
- Eivor: I crossed the broad sea for you, Gorm. Are you not flattered?
- Gorm: For one reason only, I see. You snake.
- Eivor: One reason only!
- Gorm: Wait. Wait. This is not the hall of five hundred doors. This is not the rock of the fallen. Where are the women on the winged horses?
Gorm dropped his axes and fell to his knees as Eivor walked towards him.
- Gorm: Where are the Choosers of the Slain?
Eivor circled Gorm before stopping in front of him.
- Gorm: You. My blood enemy.
Eivor gestured to the world around her.
- Eivor: This is Niflheim, the hell of mist and cold. This is where faithless dead come to die again. This is where ghosts fade to mist, to be forgotten.
Gorm stood up, shook his head at Eivor, and replied.
- Gorm: Your meddling has doomed us all, crow of battle.
As Gorm reached to pull out the Crystal Ball, Odin walked from behind him to stand at Eivor's side.
- Eivor: More lies from a liar born. Now speak the truth. What brought the Order to this place?
Gorm showed Eivor the Crystal Ball, Isu markings glowing brightly.
- Gorm: To free a goddess, a creature of power and light ... buried by the Jötnar in ages past.
As he spoke, a beam of light appeared above them, growing in intensity. Gorm, Eivor, and Odin all looked up to its source. Eivor stared at it for a moment, entranced, before looking back at Gorm.
- Eivor: A pity, Gorm. You will not meet her now.
Eivor reached forward and took Gorm's Order medallion as his spirit immediately vanished. Eivor picked up the Crystal Ball afterwards.
- Eivor: Gorm's crystal-eye. It hums with a strange feeling. Unearthly. What was Gorm digging for? Something deep inside this cave? Olav should know his tormentor is dead. I owe him that much.
Before leaving the camp, Eivor investigated the cave where she found a great door of stone, Isu markings carved into it with a recess the size of the crystal ball. Eivor pulled out the ball, which still glowed, and a voice came from it.
- Unknown Voice: The probabilities lead us here. The calculations give us hope.
- Eivor: This... this is not for me.
Eivor tucked the ball away again and left the cave.
- Eivor: I should return to Olav. He deserves to know what happened here.
Eivor assassinated Gorm and received his Crystal Ball among his personal effects.
The first time Eivor runs out of health during a fight, the scene where she learns about elderberries will trigger, regardless of when or how it occurs. Eivor is unable to harvest elderberries for rations until this. It is possible to go the entire Vinland saga without ever triggering the scene.
