At long last, the heroes set forth from Luleastadhir towards Permia. It was now nearly summer, and the snows and ice had thawed even this far north, opening the roads and trails (and causing the retreat of the dragons and giants lurking in the wilderness to higher elevations in which they are more comfortable, according to local lore).
Orm-Barri warned the heroes to avoid the swamps and rivers to the north, where danger lurks even in the warmer months, and take the trail around the swamps to the south. Yet as they set forth, the heroes wondered what lurked along the river to the north that had so frightened the locals. Estrid used a spell that allowed her to look down on the world from above, as an eagle or raven sees the world. See could see someone wading in the river to the north – a naked women, clothed only in her own long tresses of raven-black hair.
The heroes decided to send envoys to meet this mysterious woman. They introduced themselves to her, and she told them that her name was Hvedhra. Hvedhra made reference to being alone, having lost her former guardian and protector. He had gone to try to retrieve a ring of feather fall from the nest of a mated pair of skergipar (giant birds that can carry off even horses in their talons). She offered the heroes her greatest treasure – magical dust with which to turn invisible ( dust of disappearance ) – if they will brave the nest of the skergipar and retrieve her ring. Although the heroes do not fully trust Hvedhra, they have agreed to seek her ring . . .
