Description: [edit] [history]

This is a story about a somewhat normal human, on a hike on Hardangervidda in Norway, that end up walking out in Alfheimr instead of Earth. Alfheimr is one of the nine realms of the old Norse religion, home of the light elfs. Its quite a culture shock, and he don't really know the language, culture or religion. The decisions he make have consequences, and some will change Alfheimr.

He decide that if he's ever going to get back to Midgard he have to travel to a bigger town, try to find information, make money and so on. So he's trying to be smart, and pretends to be a mysterious traveling magician. Should be easy to fake right?

... and thats the first decision with gigantic consequences, since he doesn't know that only women do magic. A man doing magic is automatically unmanly. Oops.

This project started as Roleplaying campain the Author wrote, with plenty of world building, and its not 100% Viking age. Liberaties have been taken to make it more interesting, and since there's lots of details we just don't know of life in that era, but the main character doesn't know that. But then the Author realised that the players wouldn't do what he wanted to find out, and probably die or feck it all up, since this isn't a normal hack-n-slash RPG world. So the Author started playing all the characters himself with input and character building from unwittingly asked friends and family, and he actually thought that wouldn't feck it up even worse.

The idea was to try to find out what might happen if a modern person went to late Viking times. How much could he actually change? How much technology could he introduce and what? We're standing on a huge techtree and most of that knowledge is pretty useless without the underlaying tech.

The problem is that characters have different agendas, and the main character doesn't know enough about the world and its culture. The Author didn't either. So this story got side tracked fast, and it didn't help that the Author doesn't allow himself to go back and change big things when he later realise that was a bad idea. Only small fixes for plotholes and such was allowed. Those fixes often made it worse. Or better, depending on different characters viewpoints. This isn't the story the Author planed to tell, and he don't know how it will end, but so far its been interesting for the Author to learn more about medieval life, world and technology, and how small simple choices have huge consequences.

Be warned; English isn't the Authors primary language, and its mostly written in first person view. It will be slow.
