Scandinavia adopted Christianity during the height of the Medieval times. Although hesitant, the population of Denmark, Sweden and Norway eventually converted, subjugating themselves to the Holy See. They were promised to receive absolution.
Little did the Nordic people know how this path to absolution actually looks like: any mere priest can sell indulgences which save you from the hellfire, bishops are exploiting the very cities they promised to protect and the Pope pays more attention to its own personal gains than to the fate of Catholicism.

In times like this it is not strange for a [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] like [Root.Monarch.GetName] to question the authority of the Papacy. During one of [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] rides through the wilderness of [Root.GetName] [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] encountered one of the old rune stones created by our pagan ancestors. [Root.Monarch.GetHerHisCap] curiosity about the Old Gods has been unleashed...

[Root.Monarch.GetName] travelled into the thick forests of [Root.GetName] with a small group of the closest advisors and servants. After all, a [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] as [Root.Monarch.GetHerHim] can not survive in the wilderness just by [Root.Monarch.GetHerselfHimself].
After several weeks of travelling, searching and philosophizing, the curious [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] and [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] company eventually found a forsaken temple with a small collection of idols of the several gods of the Norse faith. Upon touching them, [Root.Monarch.GetName] suffered a seizure and lost all of [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] senses!

Two days later, after [Root.Monarch.GetHerHisCap] servants established a small camp, the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] finally woke up from [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] unwanted sleep.

It has been months since [Root.Monarch.GetName]'s sudden loss of senses. Although it only prevailed for a short time, the... visions [Root.Monarch.GetName] claimed to have seen changed [Root.Monarch.GetHerHim] drastically.

No longer was [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] busy with the matters of the Church nor did [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] seem to care about the security of the state. Instead, the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] studied every single script; every single documention about the old Norse religion. Although some worried about [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] sanity, the chats with [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] revealed that [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] had not lost [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] sharp mind in any way.

One day though, [Root.Monarch.GetName] vanished completely and messages from [new_norse_province.GetName] reached the court...
