In a series of episodic adventures, Erik and his men encounter many dangers, including the Dogfighters, the sea dragon and ferocious storms. Their most persistent antagonist is an evil trickster called the Old Man of the Sea, who three times tries to deceive Erik and his men. They come across many strange realms, especially when they sail off the edge of the world, must get through the vast waterfall and explore realms beneath the lip of the world.
