WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

(Minor Spoilers)

Meet Beorn: A little Viking who pines for the exploits of legendary warriors. Instead of traveling lands teeming with fantastical beasts, illustrious heroes, and glorious battles, Beorn mulls about. A least he's got enormous mugs of chocolate milk to chug on tap. Life's not so bad for Beorn, but he knows he's meant for more.


Luckily, a wizard bestows the petite Norseman a map and whispers affirmations of fate into Beorn's ear. Crudely drawn images on a piece of parchment is all the motivation Beorn needs and, armed with his adventure map, he sets out on a quest for adventure. Quests don't always go as planned, though, as Beorn proves he has a huge heart and a penchant for mischief.


What perils loom on the horizon for Beorn? Will he achieve legendary hero status? And are hot wings on the menu during his journey?
