(Translator's note; Translated roughly from what appears to be Futhark runes.)
Been bout a week now since I got here. This place is interesting in many ways, the flora and fauna, the people. And the wondrous things I have seen. Creatures unlike the beasts from my lands, men and women who become like beasts, new Gods I have never heard of, new magicks, new technologies. It is amazing to see these sites, and be the first from my home to see it.
It is also terrifying. I have realized that normal mortal men are not numerous here. I have met one such man, Richard Barker, and even he fell victim to some strange magick. I assumed he was younger than I, then one day I came to see him aged beyond my years! That was the last I saw of Richard, and it saddens me. But I met his son, a boy who wasn't even born when I met his father, who is now a man. He has great strength, and is tenacious, facing odds and creatures most men would shy away from, and all with so basic of technology, stones and sticks mostly. He is smart however, avoiding things unknown to him, and keeping a good distance in a fight, unwilling to let himself die needlessly.
My first true experience here of how strange this place is, when we where brought to another world! I don't remember how I got here as it where, but a man who was oddly dressed open a portal, a door in the air, to a different place. If I was there for different reasons, I may have stayed longer. It was there that myself and two others ended up saving a slave, it would of been two if things went better.
I realize now, that it's time for me to change my ways as well. My body is not what it used to be after so many battles, so I believe I should add to my skills, and my kit. My arms and armor may not last much longer, but it was good to see that my dirk's silver plating helped in one aspect, and maybe will help in others.
One woman offered me work to help rebuild her home, and I shall do so. I will need to learn the workings of all the things at my disposal to do so, but should not take too long. Maybe this will be the edge I need?
For now, I rest, I wait, and I plan. I shall gather stories, and I will learn more of this place, and the odd people within it. I will do as I am best at, I will stand above all!
