Chief Olav and the viking warriors return from their raid in the south and have found a map to a new world of wealth. They have brought with them treasures and slaves, one of which is a decadent and self-important actor by the name of Rufus. Orm was given the responsibility of acting as chief while his brother, Olav, was on the raid. The great warrior Arvid has an insidious plan to establish himself with a wife and farm, by challenging a great farmer in the village Norheim.
