Main Quest (Act V): The Warrior Princess > The Power of Nerthus > Scandia under Siege

This is the third chapter of the Main Quest of The North (Act V). A mysterious artifact that Ylva believes will greatly aid her people is kept by the Cult of Nerthus, a twisted and powerful nature cult that holds sway over the wildlands beyond Glauberg. You must go to their underground sanctuary in the Suebi Lakelands and slay the four Elders that guard the artifact. Doing so will not only further your own cause, but also greatly please the Glauberg Prince, to whom the cult has been as a thorn in his side for a long time.
