Synopsis:
On his quest to complete the Twelve Tasks of Thor, Jon and the Mute Bard enter the Ice King's frozen domain. He must "awaken a rose"? He fights a two-headed bear, sails down a waterfall, fights snowmen - all traps of the frosty Ice King. In a high castle he climbs a "vine" of Rapunzel-like hair and finds a sleeping beauty holding a rose. A kiss breaks the trance. Jon is frozen by the Ice King, but turns a ruby into a burning ray. The Ice King falls. The Fourth Task of Thor is accomplished.
