Now - centuries later - it is the player’s quest to discover this forsaken place and reveal the secrets buried in the cold depths of Nangrim.

During his journey, the player will find books written in a runic scripture that provide information, story, and hints. In order to be able to read those books, the player must learn to translate those runes. To do so, he is given hints for example in the form of translated fragments, which over time and with additional research, allow translating the ancient language of the Stonebeards.
