And wherever it's dark and stormy, Skarin will find nasty enemies he'll need to destroy and dismember in order to make the sun shine brightly over the land once more.
Indeed, that's somewhat how Viking: Battle for Asgard goes: Skarin happens upon a collection of zombie-like characters-sometimes with a group of captured ally soldiers caged or bound to a post-in an area that's seemingly in a perpetual state of overcast and downpour. When he manages to clear out the baddies and free his pals (who then become part of Skarin's growing army), the cloud cover also clears and the rain ends. It's the typical metaphor of evil-represented-by-bad-weather/good-represented-by-clear-skies."
