This conceptional album – set in the fantasy world Ellínór – tells the story of thirtythree brave merchants from the land of Thousandsprings that sail above the Great Center Sea to the Eastern continent of Nórthór, where they hope to find new possibilities of trading. At the same time in Nórthór there is an uprising of eager dwarves that attack major parts of Nórthór to suppress all other folks to reign above the West of the continent.
Everything begins with a discovery of a huge amount of copper ore in the Southern Mountains of Thousandsprings and the question, where to sell it. Thousandsprings lies in the West of El’úthó and is a relatively poor folk by then. The king and his counselors see the discovery as an opportunity to reach wealth and prosperity, but without having an idea of where the wealth should come from. The neighbor folks on the El’úthan continent are not wealthier than the Men of Thousandsprings themselves and the Western continent Líthon is an unknown and unsung place that is feard by every El’úthan. The only possibility, they can think of, is the faraway Nórthór, deep in the East, at the other side of the Great Center Sea. Eventually the king decides to send his most famous and bravest shipmaster, Hjálmar the Brave, on an adventurous journey far into the East, without knowing something about the Uprising of the Eager Dwarves.
