My best friend Subotai prays to the four winds. He says his god is stronger. That it is the everlasting sky! And Crom lives underneath him.
I am skeptical of this.
My Father told me that Fire and wind come from the sky, from the gods of the sky. But Crom is my god, Crom and he lives in the earth. Once, giants lived in the Earth. And in the darkness of chaos, they fooled Crom, and they took from him the enigma of steel. Crom was angered. And the Earth shook. Fire and wind struck down these giants, and they threw their bodies into the waters, but in their rage, the gods forgot the secret of steel and left it on the battlefield. We who found it are just men. Not gods. Not giants. Just men. The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. I must learn its riddle. I must learn its discipline. For no one - no one in this world can I trust. Not men, not women, not beasts.
This I can trust.
