Raven said, " Let's talk this nots anymore. To will be taken if the later is , " he says , and now returns empty.

A little later became a bodyguard Raven King Olaf, and asked him to holiday departure . The king gave him.

And Raven was ready for departure he said to Gunnlaugs " done, now our friendship that you wanted me here for hræpa chief. Now I will some time not disrespect you less than you wanted me here. "

Harri said, " Do not sadden me your threats , " he says, " and we'll never come to that I should be less valuable than you. "

King Olaf gave Raven good gifts at parting , and he went away then .

Raven went east in the spring and came to Trondheim and lived their ship and sailed to Iceland in the summer and brought his ship into Leiruvog below heath and were glad to see his relatives and friends , and he was home on winter with his father.

And during the summer at the Althing met uncles , scratch lawyer and poet - Raven .

Then Raven : "Your full ting I would have courts Thorstein Egil recite his daughter . "

Shaft answered: " Is it not previously fiancée Gunnlaugs ormstungu ? "

Raven said, " Is neither passed the policy now , " he says, " a recommendation for them? End is far more His Proud he will now to Check for or store. "

Shaft answered, " We will do as you please. "

Then they went to the booth multitude of Thorstein Egil . He greeted them warmly.

Shaft said, " Raven, my cousin wants to recite your daughter and you knew his family and wealth of financial and cultural good, great uncle catches and friends. "

Thorstein answered: "She is a hot woman Gunnlaugs before and I will keep all matters to him , they were laid . "

Shaft said, " Are we not now passed three winters were referred to with you ? "

" Yes , " said Thorstein , "but neither is summer and the team is still to come this summer. "

Shaft replied, " But if he is not into summer every expectation crust then we have this issue ? "

Thorstein answered: " Here we will bring another summer and you can see what seems expedient but not ponds now this talk longer time. "

And we did it , and they rode home from the Thing .

Not started this talk secret to Raven asked Helga. Ei Gunnlaugur came out this summer .

And another summer at the shaft they moved wooing exceedingly , and said Thorstein loose all cases we Gunnlaug .

Thorstein answered: "I have a very short daughters to see and I would gladly desperate man would that defamation . Now I want to see first Illugi black . "

And so he did.

And when they found them Thorstein said , " Do you think I will loose all cases we Gunnlaug your son ? "

Illugi said, "Sure enough , " he says, " if you will. I check here now little to contribute when I do not do stuff Gunnlaugs my son . "

Thorstein them to handle and they bought that wedding should be veturnáttum Gunnlaugur if the City had not come out in the summer but Thorstein loose all cases with Raven if Gunnlaugur came and visited the Council.

After that they rode home from the Thing, and postponed the introduction Gunnlaugs Helga thought evil to prevail.

10
Now tell Gunnlaug he went from Sweden to England that summer is Raven went to Iceland and the good gifts of King Olaf the parting . General Council of the King took Gunnlaug excellently and was with him during the winter with good honor.

At that time Denmark ruled over the kingdom Knut Sveinsson had but lately his father's goods and vow appeared always fight to England for the boy king his father had done a great kingdom in England before he died in the west . And at that time there was a great army of Danish men in the west and was the chief for the Hemi -importance is called the ostrich - son Harold Earl Sigvald brother Earl , and he held the kingdom under King Knut the king's servants had previously worked .

In the spring the king asked Gunnlaugur a vacation for departure .

He said: " Ei possessive you now to leave me such a war now looks here in England because you are my henchman . "

Harri said, " You shall employ my Lord and give me leave to summer departure if the Danes should come . "

The king said, " Let's see them. "

Now the way that summer and winter and the arrival of the Danes not . And after my summer vacation was Gunnlaugur for departure of the king, and went Gunnlaugur thence east to Norway and found Eric Earl of Trondheim in stacks and Earl took him well, and asked him to remain with him . Gunnlaugur thanked him for the invitation and said he had will go first to Iceland toward semi virgin mother.

Earl said, " Now all the vessels gone , they are expected to Iceland . "

Then one henchman "Here lay Hallfred troubleshooting poet yesterday released under Agdi peninsula . "

Earl said, "That may be," he says. " He sailed from here for five more nights . "

Eric Earl then transfer Gunnlaug out Hallfreðar . Hallfred succeeded him celebrated and gave the wind off shore and were well happy . It was late in the summer .

Hallfred said to Gunnlaugs "Have you news of Raven Önundarson wooing of the beautiful Helga ? "

Gunnlaugur claims to have heard though not surely . Hallfred tells him such that he knew of , and how many people said that Raven would not know óröskari but Gunnlaugur .

Gunnlaugur recited this verse :

I am carrying out a little though games,
light horse is now tightly
East wind to Ondra
coasts this week .
Meir sjáumk other , but higher
hoddstríðandi Wait ,
words that I should be
jafnröskr thought Raven .
Hallfred said: "As a company that you would know better than the Raven issues with me . Came I ship my Leiruvog below moor for a few years and I had to pay half a mark of silver carles Raven and I kept it for him. While the raven riding to us with sixty men , and cut the ropes and ran the boat up on clay and create the shipwreck . , I had to sell the Raven autonomy and I paid those goals and my telling him.

And then there was the eintalað weekend and promised Hallfred very vænleik her .

Harri said then :

Remember háðvörum Fiery
ing about while thin
reject hörvi driven
obey ground þýðast
By lautsíkjar were playing
heather , you were younger ,
ells off gims various
coasts that country.
" This is a well written , " says Hallfred .

They took land north Melrakkaslétta Lava Port two weeks for winter and ordered up there .

Thord man. He was a farmer's son because of the smoothness. He joined the struggle with the acquisition of the men and walked them hate him. Then come together with the prisoner Gunnlaug . And the night before was called Thord Thor to a victory . And the day they met they began to struggle . The solution Gunnlaugur both legs away Thord , and smote him a great foot fall while jumping from Gunnlaugs followers, whom he stood , and fell Gunnlaugur them with her.

Then Thord said, " Maybe, " he says , "that it may be no other better. "

" What? " says Harri .

" The cases with Raven if he gets Helga to the anticipated winter nights and I was in the summer of Parliament , it is settled . "

Gunnlaugur answered no trick . It was wrapped leg and passed himself and quite contrary to what þrútnaði .

They Hallfred rode twelve of them together and came south Gilsbakki Borgarfjördur in the pool evening they sat wedding to pay. Illugi Gunnlaug was glad her son and his comrades . Harri said he already will ride down to the city. Illugi said that was not expected and it seemed all but Gunnlaug Gunnlaugur but was unable , however, for the sake of the foot if he was acting not seen and was therefore not go.

Hallfred rode home in the morning to Hreduvatn at North . Because ruled their property Galt and his brother was sinking man.

11
Now it must be told Raven he sat at his wedding to pay and it is most admit that the bride would be rather sad , and it's right down the long remember the young can and it was now and then .

A startling thing happened at that party that the man asked hungers Thorodd daughter Jofridr is Sverting name was Haf Biorn mold- Gnupur son and was to be expected cope in the winter after Christmas up to Skáney . There dwelt Þorkell hungers cousin , son Torfajokull Valbrandssonar . Mother was needed Thorod sister -Tongue .

Raven went to Moss with his wife Helga . And when they had been there a short while , it was one morning before they rose to Helga watches but Raven slept and he slept poorly . When he woke Helga asks what he had dreamed.

Raven recited this verse :

Hugðumst worm on arm
yl dew you beheaded ,
would , doll , blood
bedr your reddened my
knættit shroud of the
ölstafns lend Raven ,
also learnest it ended
fountain, höggþyrnis tie .
Helga said, " I will never cry, " she says. "Do you have deceived me. Gunnlaugur will come out " and cried Sanctify them greatly.

And soon after he moved Gunnraugs result . Helga was now so stiff with Raven that he could not keep it at home and then they went back into the city and put a little of Raven around her .

Now , people expect to tender for the winter.

Thorkell from Skáney invited Illugi black and his sons . And Illugi farmer created the Gunnlaugur sat in the living room and did not expect .

Illugi came to him and said, " Why do not you suppose Uncle ? "

Harri said: "I 'm not going . "

Illugi said, " Go , save your cousin , " he says, " and do not beat yourself such a desire for a single woman and do not know you and you will never lack women . "

Gunnlaugur did as his father said, and they came to the wedding and were Illugi and his sons placed a priority than Thorstein Egil and Raven -law and his band bridegroom another seat opposite Illugi .

Women sat on the bench and sat Helga the Fair next bride and slipped often Gunnlaugs eyes , and there is therefore recommended not to hide from the eyes if a man loves a woman . Harri was well equipped and had the clothing the good Sigtrygg King gave him and he was much superior to other men for the sake of variety , both power and vænleiks and growth.

Small was double delight for the invitation. And on the day when men were away costume the women drew her walk and got ready to go home. Gunnlaugur went to talk to the weekend and had a long talk .

And then said Gunnlaugur verse:

Ormstungu was no
all covered Dag und hall mountain
slow late Helga the Fair
Raven ruled kvonar name.
Barely saw the white flesh ,
hjörþeys father virgin
Eir was given an aura
young, with my tongue .
And again he said:

Expected on I shop for wages ,
wine forgiven your father
fold nemr whistle pans
flóðhyrs , and mother ,
by Bil did eat
both time und clothing,
Ministers have flesh and black
cunning work , so beautiful .
And then gave Gunnlaugur Helga cloak Ethelred 's gift and it was smashed by most. She thanked him well gift .

Gunnlaugur went out and got the horses were saddled horses and many allvænlegir and bound at home in the yard . Gunnlaugur ran behind some horse and rode to the meadow after a while and there was a Raven and Raven became the openings before.

Harri said, " is to escape openings Raven , " he says, " that the threat Ongar I invite you to her , you know to whom you have worked . "

Raven answered and sang :

Samira us two for one ,
Ullr direct flights , full ,
celebrities Ságu ,
fangs in isomer to operate.
Are very many such ,
morðrunnr , the ocean south
I push him at sea ,
identification foam, women good.
Harri said, " Maybe, " he says , "that many are but I do not think so . "

Then they ran to Illugi and Thorstein and did not know they bred with .

Whereupon Gunnlaugur verse:

Eir was given an aura
ormdags the colorful ,
the provision , nor less
My its equal , Raven ,
all be used while the east
General Council of the movement lived ,
the memory menrýris
málgráðr , the noise pedestal.
And afterwards men rode home either side and all was quiet and tidingless winter . Raven then took advantage of not living with Helga then they Gunnlaugur had been found.

And summer men rode multitude Assembly , Illugi black and his sons with him Gunnlaugur Hermundr , Thorstein Egil and Kollsvein his son Aunund from Moss and his sons , Sverting Haf Biorn .

The shaft was still jurisdiction.

And one day the Assembly 's men went to the Hill of Laws multitude and there was the smell of measuring law business then greeted Gunnlaugur a hearing, and said, " Raven Önundarson here ? "

He said he would be there .

Gunnlaugur ormstungu said: "That you know you have got my girlfriend and held enmity to me just for that. I will offer you the combat in parliament on three nights in every Öxarárhólmi . "

Raven said, " This is a good offer, the hope was to you, " he says, " and this I am ready whenever you want. "

This was evil kin of each of them, but it was the law at that time to provide combat vanhluta who pretended to be the other .

And three nights had elapsed they prepared for combat and followed Illugi black son to combat with great force. But shaft lawyer came to Raven and his father and other relatives of his .

And before Gunnlaugur rate out into the isle he sang this verse :

Now I am out of a penny
alvangs been operated,
highly fortunate greppi loved God ,
done, sprain Hjörvar .
Helga the saddle locks,
header will I loose from the shaft
finally a light sword
ljúfsvelgs , the two split.
Raven answered and said this :

Yours greppr each greppa
benefit happier warm welcome .
Here is bensigðum alarmed .
Prepare eggs for lodge.
It will alone widow
young maiden , though we særumst ,
dry plate of parliament
When courage reports .
Hermund he did for his brother but Gunnlaug Sverting Haf Biorn for Raven . Three boundaries of silver he should resolve itself replaced the wound would be .

Raven had earlier cut down on he was challenged and struck him in the shield Gunnlaugs upward and broke apart when the sword hilt that was carved by a great power. Sword caught flew up from the shield and struck cheek Gunnlaug and shone dist him than not . Then ran their fathers when in the midst of many other people .

Then Gunnlaugur "Now I call that Raven is defeated when he should fail . "

" But I call that you are defeated , " says he , " thou art become sore . "

Harri was mad with rage and angry and said not trying to be. Illugi his father said they would try more time.

Harri said, " I should like , " he says , "that the Raven so we faced each other once you were away from father to leave us . "

And this they did to her , and they went home to their booths .

And the next day at the Law was put into law that should be taken by all the duels thereafter and it was done on the recommendation of all the wisest men we were present but there were all those who were wisest in the country. And that has duel walk later date in Iceland 's Raven and Gunnlaugur fought . It has been the third Congress of attendance , one after the burning of Njal , the third after Heiðarvíg .

And one morning, brothers and Hermund Gunnlaugur went for the axes of the wash then went to the other side of the river , and many women were there Helga the Fair in the team .

Then Hermund : " Do you see your friend Helga here beyond the river ? "

Harri said, " I see it for sure . "

And then said Gunnlaugur verse :

Alin was rýgr to defamation,
shrubs caused by Gunnar
I was low wealth to own
óðgjarn , Fira children.
Now svanmærrar ago
black circles under my eyes
land for oil - Gunnar
little need to look.
They went across the river and they talked Helga and Gunnlaugur while. When they went east across the river Helga stood and stared at Gunnlaug long after .

Gunnlaugur saw them back across the river and sang this song :

Brámáni shone bridge
brims of lights sky
Shake hörvi Greater
hawk Fránn me pain.
But the ray Counties
then gold mens Peace
blepharitis moon and rings
Basic harm me.
After this time has elapsed men rode home from the Thing, and was Gunnlaugur home on Gilsbakki .

And one morning he woke up there were all men except the hospitality he lay. He rested in the locked bed Committee of sediment. Then the twelve men in the hall , all the followers fully armed , and had come Raven Önundarson . Gunnlaugur sprang up at once, and could get their weapons.

Then Raven said : "We no trick should you be stopped , " he says, "but it is my errand here you shall hear. Hómgöngu You told me in the summer at the thought , and that you do not actually have . Now I offer you we both go away from Iceland and outside in the summer and walk to the island in Norway. , there will not be a kin to our stand . "

Harri said: "Say boys brain and this choice I will gladly accept . And here is accepting Raven , " he says, " the article you want. "

Raven said, " It is a good offer, but we will ride first time. "

And this they did .

This was kin of each of the two large badly but did not do for themselves, their fierce as it was presented to establish that the slowed .

12
Now to tell Raven that he lived his ship in clay weight. Two men are those committees came up with Raven , sisters sons Onund his father. One called Masks other than Olaf, who were both stout men . All kin Raven was quite similar when he went away , he said so , said the Gunnlaug battle scorers he said he would have a serious problem bounty weekend and said either have to fall for one another.

Raven then sailed out to sea when they got wind and came with his ship in Trondheim , and was heard of winter and not Gunnlaugs in the winter and there he waited Gunnlaugs summer . And yet another winter he was in Trondheim named Lifang .

Gunnlaugur ormstungu took ship with Hallfreðar problems please north on the plains and they were very delayed and sailed out to sea when the wind blew and made a small Orkney winter.

Earl son of Hlodver ruled the islands for Gunnlaugur and went to him, and spent the winter of Earl and respected him. In the spring created Earl of war . Gunnlaugur expected to travel with him, and fought in the summer around the Hebrides and Scotland and had many battles and was Gunnlaugur the bravest and the bravest boy and the hardiest of men wherever they went. Earl was centered home early in the summer, but Gunnlaugur took ship with the merchants , sailing to Norway and they knew Earl with great friendship.

Gunnlaugur went north to Trondheim on Hlaðir meeting Eric and Earl was early winter and the earl welcomed him and invited him to remain with him and accepted him. News Earl had previously traded their Raven, and says Gunnlaug he suggested banning them from berðust in his state. Harri said he would employ such Gunnlaugur and was there for the winter and generally aloof .

In the spring one day withal he went outside and Thorkell his cousin with him. They walked away from the town and the golf courses for the man was ringing. And in the ring were two men with weapons and fencing . Was named Raven and other Gunnlaugur . Those who stood by said that Iceland intends light, and were slow to remember his words . Gunnlaugur felt that this was accompanied by a large subject , and here was a great game of drag and withal he went away quietly .

And a little while after he tells Earl he said no longer bother to injured and mocked his retainers matters Raven and asked Earl get a leader in Live -importance . Earl was told earlier that Raven was gone from Lifang and gone east to Sweden and he gave Gunnlaug leave to go and gave him two leaders for the trip.

Now go Gunnlaugur of Hlada the seventh person in Live -importance and the mogul Raven had gone there with a fifth man Gunnlaugur came that evening. Thence withal Vera-dale, and was always in the evening that Raven had been the night before . Gunnlaugur goes on till he came at the last town in the valley is a column named Raven had gone there for moguninn . Gunnlaugur stayed not trip and went in the night . And in the morning sólarroð they saw one another . Raven had come there were two lakes and among lakes courts were smooth. It called Gleipnisvellir . But out in the water were other small peninsula called Ding ness . There were Raven in the peninsula were five. They were his uncles with Raven , Grim and Olaf .

When they met, Gunnlaug said : " It is well that we have found . "

Raven said he would not revile "and now each option is you want, " says he , "that we all fight or two and are an equal number of each. "

Gunnlaug said well too if either is . Then they said relatives Raven , Grim and Olaf, and said he would not stand by when they berðust . So said Thorkell and black cousin Gunnlaugs .

Then Gunnlaug to the Earl : "You shall sit by and provide hvorigum and be a narrative about how our meeting . "

And so they did.

Then they underwent , fought fræknlega everyone . Grim and Olaf both went against Gunnlaug one and ended their business he killed them both , but he was not wounded .

This proves Þórður Kolbeinsson in a poem he wrote about Gunnlaug ormstungu :

Barn before Raven privacy,
hugreifum voyage
THEY Gonda and masks
Gunnlaug a universal heavy .
He was the instigator
hugmóðr fueled blood
Ullr ruled push falls
unnviggs , three died .
Raven sought during and Þorkell black cousin Gunnlaugs fell Þorkell for Raven and gave His life . And all their comrades fell at last . And then they fought with two large strokes and safe onslaught is granted each other and pursue only one in intensity . Harri had the sword Ethelred gift, and it was the best weapon. Gunnlaugur struck them at last to Raven huge hit with the sword and escape Raven leg . Raven fell but not to either override and then strain and one favored since the residual balance .

Then Gunnlaugur : " Now you're consensual , " he says, " and I will not fight you anymore maimed man . "

Raven said, " So what , " he says , "that really has the games on my part , but I still would well suffice if I had anything to drink . "

Harri said: "Fraud me not , " he says , "if I bring you water in my helmet . "

Raven said, " I will not betray you, " he says.

Gunnlaugur went to the doctor and fetched a helmet and brought it to Raven . But he stretched out against the left hand but struck in the head Gunnlaug with his sword , and that was very great wound .

Then Gunnlaugur "Ill sveikstu me now and unsportsmanlike left you where I trusted you."

Raven said, " Yes, " he says, "but it worked for me I love you not hug his holy of the beautiful . "

And then they fought still intense , but it ended at last Gunnlaugur bar of Raven and Raven had since died. Then the leaders of Earl and bound head in Gunnlaugs .

He sat while and then sang this verse :

But we did meet against
mótrunnr in flight Spear
while utterly difficulty hearts
Raven advance equal basis .
Here were many morning
metal flew on Gunnlaug ,
hergerð spirit of hard
circle þollr , Dinga ness .
Then , they were dead men and brought Gunnlaug his horse after it and brought him up into the Live -importance . And there he lay for three nights and received all of the priest and then died and was buried in the church .

All seemed great harm to both their Gunnlaug and Raven , with the events that happened to their executions .

13
And the summer before that tidings out here in Iceland, dreamed Illugi black and was the home of Gilsbakki . He thought that the Gunnlaugur come in his sleep and was very bloody and sang this song to him in his sleep . Illugi would , indeed, he woke up and said that since the other :

I knew Raven , but Raven
sharp egg came into the shin
hjaltugguðum chop
rhythm fish like armor ,
then hræskærri warmer
received fen ari wounds.
Divided the baseline scepter Gunnar
Gunnlaugs head bush.
It happened south of Moss the same night that Onund dreamed Raven came to him and was all bloody .

He sang this song :

Skins swords and sword
sword - din I did.
Were tested in stripes
randgálkn for ver beyond .
I bloody think blood
Blood gögl of Skorrastaðir .
Sárfíkinn received wounds
sárgammr still on the march .
And in the summer after the second parliament said Illugi Onund corresponds to the Hill of Laws , "What do you want me for my son, " he said , " your son is Raven betrayer of trust ? "

Aunund answered: "Remote Returned I think so , " he said , " adding he dearly as I thought at the meeting. Nearest and I will benefit beg you for my son. "

Illugi said, " Teach them the Nakki the womb , your cousin or your ættmanna . "

And after parliament 's summer Illugi was always very sad .

It was said in the fall that Illugi riding home from Gilsbakki with thirty men came to Moss early in the morning . Aunund came to church and his sons but Illugi took two of his uncles . Was named Björn than other Thorgrim . He slew the Bear fóthöggva Thorgrim . Illugi riding home after that and this was no rétting of Onund .

Hermund Illugason chassis by Gunnlaugur little brother and was not his but avenged that if this were done.

A man named Raven and the brother Onund at Moss. He was a great sailor and had a ship that was in Hrútafjörður. The spring riding Hermund Illugason home one anyway and north Holtavörðuheiði and so Ramfirth and out of Borðeyri to ship merchant others. Merchants were very prepared. Raven was number one in this country, and many men with him. Hermund angry at him and thrust the spear through him and rode away. But they were all terrified members Raven Hermund. Ongar arrival compensation for the slaughter of this and this leaves their replacement Illugi black and Onund at Moss.

Thorstein Egil married his daughter Helga time went to that man's name was Thorkell Hallkel. He lived in Helga went home with him and became his devotees little because it will never cease to think Gunnlaug though he was dead. But Thorkell was a doughty man, and wealthy in money o

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
