Eldrid could feel the chill seeping into his bones from the wall of fog in front of him, causing him to hesitate about entering .

He took half a step in and tried to disperse the fog with a gale of wind .

It had absolutely no effect, as the fog was an ascendant's domain .

Eldrid sighed before stepping forward into the fog, and much to his surprise the only thing that changed was the visibility, as everything was shrouded in darkness .

Suddenly the outline of a person flashed bin front of him before slinking back into the mist, putting him on edge .

Eldrid at this point jumped backwards, attempting to leave the fog, but he found himself further into the chilly mists .

'This doesn't bode well . . . '

Suddenly a wave of tiredness passed through his body, all the way down to his soul . He became groggy and sluggish, the urge to sleep welled up within him .

However Magmus's snoring brought Eldrid back to reality .

Eldrid woke Magmus up and continued wandering in the mist, for what felt like days .

Every "day" he battled the urge to sleep but his willpower kept him going .

After what felt like months (but was only a week) Eldrid arrived at a place where the mist thinned, revealing an old man in rags .

"Young hero, why do you venture so far into the mist? This place is the gateway to Hel, where evil resides . "

"I seek a necromancer who may have passed through here, Leonard Welser . "

"Another man came through here a month ago, he was riding an skeletal horse with eyes of green fire . Would this be who you're after?"

"Yes, which direction did he go?"

"There are no directions within the mist, only destiny will guide you . "

So Eldrid began wandering once again, however this time he ended up fighting off the lost souls of the fog, those who were neither good nor bad .

After an unknown amount of time Eldrid arrived blundered out of niflheim, finding himself in front of a frozen river(1) .

Eldrid stepped onto the frozen waters, but his leg turned blue, a ghostly frost turning his leg blue .

Eldrid quickly cut off his leg at the knee before it could spread any further, leading him to remember the manual Odin had given him .

While Eldrid's leg regrew, he read the manual which showed him how to guide mana through his body and strengthen the cells through the process of rebirth .

There number of stages were unknown, as only after completing the previous stage would the next be revealed .

Eldrid looked at all the diagrams on how to revitalize the cells with a look of agony .

"**** now I need to practice my spiritual control . . . but how?"

[You forget about me?]

'Yes . '

[My feelings are hurt . . . ]

'Get over it, I was in that mist . . . how long exactly?'

[Only a week . ]

"WHAT?!?!?" Eldrid exclaimed in surprise .

'It felt like years!'

[It was boring as hell waiting for you to get out, I risked spiritual corrosion to talk to you as to relieve the boredom . Didn't work though . ]

'Wait if you're bonded to my soul . . . '

[Don't worry about it . ]

After if several seconds of silence Eldrid responded by saying:

'You owe me a lesson on how to control mana better . '

[Fine . ]
