"What is best in life?"

"To crush your enemies,
to see them driven before you,
and to hear the lamentations
of their women." 

"Fire and wind come from the sky,
from the gods of the sky.
But Crom is your 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...
...You must learn its riddle.
You must learn its discipline.
For no one - no one in this world
can you trust.
Not men, not women, not beasts."
