As you can see above, I *did* remember my Reshuffle cards. Sorry, no merciless berating today.
I followed the advice of this post , and found Jotun to be an almost agreeable battle, having previously dispensed with both brothers. Fortunately, it keeps track of who has fallen to you, so I didn't have to re-battle Ullic, which is the battle that I got my posterior saved in by Blake.
Off to Ravenscar!
Oh, btw, am I the only one that wants a Grendel for a pet?
