Episode 20h – Njal’s Saga (Part 8)


In this episode, we leave the conversion behind and get back to Njal’s Saga. Tensions are running high yet again thanks to the careful plotting of your favorite villain, Morð Valgardsson.  Despite their troubled history with Morð, the Njalssons accept his friendship and quickly find themselves on the wrong side of the law.  With a major lawsuit pending and most of Iceland turning against them, the Njalssons seek help from some of Iceland’s most powerful men, including such notable figures as Guðmund the Powerful, Thorkel the Bully, and the inestimable Snorri Goði.  Will Skarpheðin lead his brothers to glory? Or will fate finally catch up with Njal and his sons?  Find out as Saga Thing takes on Njal’s Saga (again).

    • Nah, Njal and his family make out perfectly fine. The title of the saga, “the burning of njal,” should be read figuratively, as in the bright, burning, and everlasting legacy that Njal and his family leave as they lay waste to their enemies and reign victorious.

      Or not.


      • Could be … Njal the last of Atlantis… that Ilse has active volcanism ,,, just waiting for the final plunge .. he will flee thru the underground caverns, to Hawaii … maybe he is there already … catching the rays ?

        Now we will write our own endings … maybe John and Andy are enjoying the winter solstice with Njal.

        More likely, they are buried under piles, of runic scribbles, from their thing persons

        Cool Yule to all
