In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, protagonist Eivor will be tasked with securing alliances with the existing rulers of ninth century England. After building your settlement at the start of the game, you’ll have the choice of first aligning with Grantebridgescire (kicking off “The Song of Soma” story arc) or Ledecestrescire (kicking off “The Sons of Ragnar” story arc). The former includes a multi-part mystery investigation where you have to oust a traitor, and one of the clues you need to find–a yellow longship–is a bit tricky to locate.
It’s worth noting that you can technically deduce and/or guess the correct answer to the traitor’s identity without finding all of (or any) of the hints. However, collecting all of the evidence certainly helps make the decision easier, especially the yellow-painted longship, as it is the most important clue to find, recontextualizing many of the other pieces of evidence.
Full warning: the rest of this article assumes that you have at least reached Chapter 5, Part 1 of The Song of Soma, titled The Stench of Treachery. We won’t tell you the answer to who the traitor is, but we need to discuss the mission and the area it takes place in to point out the location of the longship.
