The bard’s ghost

Svaknir's ghost

Dear Mother,

In a tiny room, J’Zhirr finds the ghost sitting next to a body, presumably his. He died clutching a book in his hands. This must be the lost verse of King Olaf that Viarmo was talking about.

J’Zhirr tries to talk to the ghost but he does not answer. The ghost watches silently as this one reaches down to take the book from the body. Then he vanishes. Perhaps all this time the ghost is just waiting for someone so that his work will not remain lost.
