The evening mists start appearing at a meadow near Ullene.
Ullene is probably one of many examples of Swedish locations being named after the Norse god Uller (or Ullr/Ull). He is the god of single combat and the god who travels on skis. He is also considered to be the son of the goddess Sif and the foster son of the god Thor. His residence is called Ydalir. Apart from these basic facts not much else is known about him. His name is often part of Swedish place names however, which makes it plausible that he once was one of the more popular gods and that his following was vast. Why that was the case is anyone's guess.
