((This is my first serious IC thread, so feel free to PM me comments))

The wind was playing with Agnarr's long hair as he stood in the bow of the ship, watching Thain come closer. He turned his head back northeast, back towards home, though with no homesickness. Shaking his head he turned back towards Thain, picked up his few belongings and made himself ready to leave the ship.

The dock was not very busy, only a few sailors and guards walking around. He smiled to himself, happy he had not landed in a city. He asked a local man where he got get some honorable work, and was explained how to get to the so called “Trade & Tackel”.

It was a comfortable small building, and Agnarr ordered a room at once, with the last of his money. The next days, he worked a little for Donale Tackel and got used to the people and surroundings.

After a few days, he could feel something draw him to the south, where he had been earlier slaying kobolds. In the end, he could not resist it anymore, and traveled back to the kobold lands. Then the kobolds came, wave after wave, he held them at away with his mighty axe, but there was too many of them.

Then suddenly, a might Brown Bear rushed out of a small valley, tearing of limbs from the now frightened kobolds. When the bloodbath was over, the bear stared up at Agnarr with intelligent eyes, then turned and started to walk back to the valley.

“What just happened?“ he thought to himself, but before he could find an answer, the bears head turned, watching him, as if waiting for him. He took a step forward, and the bear started walking again. Agnarr followed the bear into the valley, to a cave.

Inside the cave was two other bears, both eyeing Agnarr as he entered. There was also a tiny lake, where the water was refreshed from an underground waterfall. Without knowing why, he walked closer to the lake, bending down to take a sip from the lake.

The water was delicious cold, and yet it warmed his bod. Feeling as something was happening, he tried to stand up, but could not, as if the upper part of his body suddenly had gotten heavier. Then he could see his mirror image in the water, looking down to his former hands, he confirmed the picture in the water; He had turned into a bear.

Feeling the bestial rage only a bear can feel when someone is taking their territory, and slaying their prey, Agnarr released a ferocious roar and stormed out of the cave followed by two bears. Their claws and teeth riped and teared at the kobolds and the ground was soaked with blood.

After a time, all the kobolds was either dead, or had fled into the cave-systems.

Finding himself lying on the road closer to the Crossroads, he stood up, remembering what had happened like a dream. Wondering what had really happened, he turned his head, and could see bear tracks coming from the south, and ending just below him.

In prayer, he thanked his Ancestors for granting him this honor, wondering if they had granted him a ever bigger honor: To be a Shaman of the Bear.

A time later, Agnarr was helping Murin with a task in the ogre halls

At first, it was a suitable fight, Agnarr had fought ogres before. They cleaved their way through the masses of ogres. The ogres never stoped coming, yet, the small party pushed forward. Murin was one of the strongest fighters Agnarr had ever met, he could only watch with awe while the stout dwarf cleaved his way through the ogres.

As Murin disapeared around a corner in front of him, Agnarr was ambushed by five strong ogres. He clashed into them with a ferocious roar, unleashing his full rage. Yet, they was too strong for him. As his rage started to fade, it began turning into desperation. His heart pounded like a war-drum.

Out of desperation, he shouted with all his breath;
Ancestors and great Uthgar! Grant me your strenght, this one time!

His call for aid was answered, somehow. Agnarr felt new strenght in his arms, and hope returned. Releasing a great roar that could be heard far away down the tunnels he hit the closest ogre with all his might; a head fell to the ground.

A while later, the fight was over. Agnarr stod panting and bleeding amongst five dead ogres, barely able to hold his weapon. Falling to the floor himself, thoughts flew through his mind:
Did his ancestors realy favour him? Did the powers of the Bear Totem rest in his body, eager to emerge?
