Quest for the Whorled Cup: Finding Loki's Skettle ...

Sven Eriksen and his vikings have landed somewhere on the coast of africa; they must go in land to get Loki's Skettle which contains the first part of the map to the Whorled Cup. The skettle is held in awe by the local Wangiri tribe.
---oXo---

Sven and his men haved landed and moved inland, they have been watched secretly by native scouts..
The native Wangiri tribe assemble in the nearby village, ready to go out and repel the intruders...
The vikings moving forward catch sight of the natives ....
The vikings charge forward and after a brief encounter in which they find the natives tough fighters, they fall back ..
The first group of natives fade back into the jungle but another larger group appear ....
A crocodile hoping for a quick snack finds that the vikings are not an easy meal; Hafnar fells it with a well aimed sword blow; angered by this attack he goes off on a personal quest to find and kill any other weird animals in a nearby thicket .... Hafnar is not seen again ...
The natives fall back to their village as the vikings surge forward ...
battle is joined as the vikings and natives fight in the village .....
The vikings cut down the natives and prepare to move on, but a large beast passing by halts their progress
After the grey beast has gone they move on, passing between the rocks they enter the ruined temple precinct
More of the Wangiri tribe appear out of the jungle to defend the temple ....
In charge the vikings keen to get to grips with the opposition ...
The natives are beaten and the survivors run off into the jungle, the vikings secure the temple ...
Sven and Elfric look at their prize - Loki's Skettle ...

  1. Great story. I wonder what happened to Hafnar? I also have no idea what a skettle is.

  2. The Skald tells his tale well, no mention of the many casualties who had to be carried back to the boat, their wounds a strange green colour.It is hoped that Hafnar, whose helmet caused him so much anguish was not captured by the natives, unhuman cries were heard as they made their way back to the longship.

  3. Sounds like something out of Prince Valiant (but more succinct! ha ha). Looks like fun, too.
