The Jade Regent
Asvig is a local ring-giver in the area of Kalsgard, in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings. The party came in contact with him when it became apparent that he had set up an ambush when they were journeying to Kalsgard and had also attempted to thwart the party in many other ways (stealing the sword Suishen and kidnapping the guide Ulf Gormundr.
The party collected enough evidence that pointed to Asvig’s meddling that they decided to raid his farmhouse at night. During the raid, Asvig was slain – however misfortune fell on the party as Caleb was also put to death by Asvig’s henchmen. The party decided to use the Seal of Amatatsu to resurrect Caleb.
After searching Asvig’s farmhouse, the party found neither the sword Suishen, nor Ulf Gormundr. However, Asvig}s thrall’s were able to testify that they overheard that Asvig had been involved in stealing the sword and kidnapping Ulf. The last bit of evidence the party gathered was that Asvig was partaking in a wake for his dead liege – Snorri Stone-eye. Stone-eye was to be burned upon a funeral ship the following day and he had amassed much of his wealth upon the ship to be taken with him to the Ulfen land of the dead. The party thought it was likely that the sword and Ulf could be aboard the ship as a good means of covering up their disappearance and investigated.
