Then answered many who stood by, and all with one mind, that it was a slander of wicked men if such lx had been spoken, and Thorolf would be found guiltless. Egil relentlessly jibed Bard about the deceit with sarcastic poetry, and his unquenchable thirst embarrassed the host. Eirik was furious, but Arinbjorn Thorisson convinced Eirik spare Egil’s life if he could compose a poem in his honor.

He came to Leka, and twenty of them went up to the house, while ten guarded the ship. Harek entered into talk with the king, and their talk turned on this, that he asked about the king’s journeys in those parts during the summer.

Snorri was said to have been descended from Egil himself, and, between andlived at Borg, where Egil had his farm.

Thorolf, Skallagrim’s son, settled to go with Bjorn, and Skallagrim gave him mean for the journey. Hildirida’s sons took the business in Halogaland; and none gainsaid this because of the king’s power, but Thorolf’s kinsmen and friends were much displeased at the change.

In fellowship with him was one Kari of Berdla, a man of renown for strength and daring; he was a Berserk. Many men plunged into the sea; but Skallagrim’s men took one of the boats, and rowed after and slew all that were swimming. Thorolf went to his father, and father and son had some talk together.

Egil married his brother Thorolf’s widow, Asgerd. But the truth is, O king, that though thou hadst somewhat less force than those who met thee, yet the farmer folk took flight when they saw thy fleet.

Kveldulf gave him a long-ship, and Kari of Berdla’s sons, Eyvind and Aulvir, resolved to go on that voyage, taking a large force and another long-ship; and they roved the seas in the summer, and got them wealth, and had a large booty to divide. That river is now called Thjors-river; its stream was then much narrower and deeper that it is now.

He also sought diligently after those men who had been in the counsels or confidence or in any way helpers of Skallagrim and his folk in the deeds which they wrought before Skallagrim went abroad out of the land.

On hearing of his death, the king summoned Hallvard Hardfarer sagw his brother, and told them to go on a message for him eastwards to Vik, he being then at Throndheim. Skallagrim was a good iron-smith, and in winter wrought much in red iron ore.

The people of the country knew nothing of Thorolf’s voyage. Kveldulf refused to assist the local king of Fjordanebut rebuffed Harald’s overtures as well, incurring his wrath. Thorgils’ crew, apprehending no danger, made no defence; they found out nothing till many armed men were aboard, and so they were all seized, and afterwards put on shore weaponless, with nothing but the clothes they wore.
