Centuries ago, a man named Skaldrun came to work in Daemonheim, only to find himself the target of a terrible curse which had an unexpected benefit. As he stood encased in ice, growing insane as he stared at the same wall, Skaldrun became a magnet for all the stories of Daemonheim. They filled his mind like a great library, and his madness enabled him to choose from the stories and act a part in them, as if they were a play. The stories kept him occupied for centuries, until an adventurer stumbled on him, and freed him...
Break Skaldrun from his icy prison and he will offer you that same ability: to take part in sagas as if you had experienced them first-hand. While you won't gain any rewards as you play the parts of such diverse characters as Thok and Sir Owen, you will find that experience and Dungeoneering token rewards await once you reach the true ending of each tale.
To start playing sagas, you must first unfreeze Skaldrun in Daemonheim, heating him up using a tinderbox and logs, or a fire-based spell. Skaldrun appears randomly on the frozen floors of Daemonheim, so you should look for him on floors 1-11, on complexity levels of 2 and above. You must have a Dungeoneering level of at least 11 to find Skaldrun in Daemonheim.
If you are in a party with players who have freed Skaldrun already, you will still be able to find him within the dungeon (as long as you meet all of the requirements). Those who have freed him previously will simply not be able to see him.
Once Skaldrun is defrosted, you can talk to him and find out more about his history before he leaves for the surface of Daemonheim. You will need to visit him in the Fremennik camp, west of Thok, if you want to play through a saga; there is too much danger in Daemonheim for Skaldrun to risk storytelling there.
There are currently five sagas available from Skaldrun. To play one, you need to find a related item in Daemonheim that jogs Skaldrun's memory. You will find these twinkling on certain floors of Daemonheim, as follows:
- Three's Company - A bearskin (floors 1-11)
- Vengeance - A collection of swords (floors 12-17)
- Nadir - A damaged device (floors 18-22)
- Thok It To 'Em - Scribbled notes (floors 30-35)
- Thok Your Block Off - A rock and twine bundle (floors 36-40)
Each saga comes in two forms: abridged and unabridged. The abridged version has a Dungeoneering level requirement and includes most, but not all, of the saga's story. For completing an abridged saga, you will be given the abridged tome, which offers a small amount of Dungeoneering XP and Dungeoneering tokens.
To experience the full tale, you will need to play the unabridged version. This has the same Dungeoneering level requirements as the abridged tome, but also has additional skill requirements. Unabridged sagas contain secondary objectives and you will normally need to figure out what they entail for yourself. Complete all of these secondary objectives to 100% (you can see how many were completed or missed on the end interface) and you will receive an abridged tome. This will give you a choice of XP in the skills that were required to play the saga.
You can replay sagas as many times as you wish, but you may only receive one abridged and one unabridged tome per saga. If you have not received an abridged tome, but you have completed the unabridged version to 100%, you will receive both an abridged and unabridged tome.
For completing the sagas, you are usually given a selection of Dungeoneering tokens and XP. As you replay the Sagas, your rewards will be reduce for each time you repeat one of the stories.
Tokens are given as 100% on the first play through, 80% on the second, 60% on the third, 40% on the fourth and 20% thereafter - resetting each Runeday. This means that, if you play through Three's Company, and then play Vengeance (on the same day), the total tokens that you can win by playing through Vengeance will be reduced to 80%.
