February. During the wedding festivities of Gautland King Siggier to Signy (22), a disguised Odin (1372) plunges the mythic sword Gram into the trunk of the great tree Barnstokkr, and issues a challenge for those present: only the worthy can pull the sword free. All the attendees fail save for Signy's brother Sigmund (22). Siggier comes to hate Sigmund for his feat.[4]
May. Signy's father and brothers, including Sigmund, come to Gautland at Siggier's invitation. The Völsungs are ambushed, and King Völsung is murdered. Nine of the ten brothers are tortured over successive nights until they die. Sigmund escapes after biting off his sister's mother-in-law's tongue (she's a wolf at the time), killing her. Sigmund hides in the forest, and Signy begins coming out to supply him.[5]

  • Aboard a Vine vessel headed to their homeworld, the human slave Aric (24) finds the sapient plant creature Shanhara, the entity that is the X-O Manowar armor. Aric bonds with it, and leads a slave rebellion. Aric barely manages to escape the Vine fleet alive, with most of his allies killed.
