This game is inspired by the legend of the Brisingamen, an enchanting necklace owned by Freya, the Norse goddess of fertility and passion. It was said that Freya owed at least part of her reputation for irresistible beauty to the Brisingamen. According to the legend, while travelling in the land of the dwarfs, Freya, impressed by their fine craftmanship, asked them to make a magical necklace of amber and beaten gold. The dwarfs insisted that there was not enough money in the world to pay for such a necklace so Freya struck a deal with the dwarfs in which she would trade her favours with each of the four dwarfs who delivered to her a segment of the necklace. That deal would set a path to much unhappiness, death and destruction. But that is a story for another game. This game follows the story of the creation of the Brisingamen.
You are a dwarf craftsman making fine jewellery of silver and precious gems. Use your team of dwarfs to mine jewels and set these jewels into settings of fine silver which you can sell to earn the prestige of your peers. Of course the grander the jewellery, the greater the prestige, but you have a quota to fill so you must work quickly.
If on the other hand you help to complete the Brisingamen for Freya, her favours will bring you even more prestige than the finest jewellery. Of course, the favours of a goddess are a temptation that is difficult to resist. Will you be tempted by Freya's offer and turn your hand to crafting a piece of the Brisingamen?
