The Thegn of Lincoln was a virtual representation of one of Eivor Varinsdottir's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.

Description

Eivor met with Aelfgar to get to know him better.

Dialogue

Eivor arrived in Aelfgarstun and headed inside Aelfgar's home.

  • Aelfgar: Eivor, I'm pleased you came.

Eivor spoke with Aelfgar.

  • Aelfgar: Welcome to the estate, old friend.
  • Eivor: Thegn Aelfgar. It's an impressive amount of land you oversee.
  • Aelfgar: Quite right! I often get lost swimming to my island in this flowing sea of wheat.

  • Eivor: You are flush with land and crops, to be sure. You're a brave man to flaunt your riches from this lonely hill.
  • Aelfgar: It's not bravery, it's trust. I trust that the respect I've earned keeps Saxon and Dane alike from temptation.
  • Eivor: You said you had something to show me when we last spoke. What did you mean?

  • Eivor: It's more a lake of wheat, I think.
  • Aelfgar: I beg your pardon?
  • Eivor: If we're to be friendly, Aelfgar, you should laugh at my jokes.
  • Aelfgar: Ah, yes. You Danes and your sense of the absurd. It's marvelous, quite marvelous.
  • Eivor: You said you had something to show me when we last spoke. What did you mean?

  • Eivor: You said you had something to show me when we last spoke. What did you mean?

  • Aelfgar: Ah, yes, I did. Observe...!
  • Aelfgar showcased a bow to Eivor.

    • Aelfgar: This fine specimen belonged to our ealdorman, Hundbeorht, before his untimely passing. He left it here when we last hunted together. I now wish you to have it.

    • Eivor: It's a beautiful weapon. Finely crafted. Thank you.
    • Aelfgar: I thought you might like it!

  • Eivor: This has the feeling of a bribe, Aelfgar. Are you trying to win my favor for some reason?
  • Aelfgar: Bribe you? Heavens no! This is a simple gift of thanks. For solving the mystery of Hundbeorht's disappearance.

  • Eivor: If this belonged to the ealdorman, shouldn't it go to Hunwald next?
  • Aelfgar: I suppose so. But I thought you a more fitting recipent. You'd know how to use it.

  • Aelfgar: Now, now, take it and come hither. I have a rousing hunt planned for the two of us.
  • Eivor and Aelfgar talk at his estate

    Eivor collected the bow as Aelfgar talked.

    • Aelfgar: Leave aside talk of politics and shiremoots. Let us enjoy the fruits of my land together.
    • Eivor: We're hunting or fruit-picking?
    • Aelfgar: Both, if you like! Whatever you fancy! I'm generous with the yields of my estate, as you will see.

    Eivor followed Aelfgar.

    • Aelfgar: To be plain, Eivor, a great bear has been badgering my estate for weeks. I must do away with it if only to prevent a future tragedy.
    • Eivor: You brought me here to hunt a bear?
    • Aelfgar: Yes, and I'm so pleased you agreed to come! I suspect you know better than most that I have what it takes to lead this shire. Though its line of kings is all but ended, the people of this land still teems with life, with promise. But today, this shire languishes. It needs the guidance of new blood.
    • Eivor: Like me.
    • Aelfgar: I'm sorry.
    • Eivor: I'm the definition of new blood. It may be I should put my name in for ealdorman.
    • Aelfgar: Ah! There it is, that dark sense of humor. Blunt as a hammer, eh? Like the one carried by your ... your thunder god, the, ah ... I don't recall the name.
    • Eivor: Go on.
    • Aelfgar: What I mean to say is, I enjoy the company of your people. Or people like you. What little I've seen of them. And I don't care what stuffy fools like Herefrith or Hunwald say. You Danes are damned decent people! Not dense at all.
    • Eivor: Kind of you to notice.
    • Aelfgar: I remembered when the Danes first arrived, not long ago. The locals were terrified. Not of being raided, but of their spouses being seduced away!
    • Eivor: Are we hunting, Aelfgar? Or is it your hope that I'll braid your hair?
    • Aelfgar: Hunting, definitely. The bear's lair should be nearby.

    Eivor, Aelfgar, and Grim discuss the bear hunt

    Eivor and Aelfgar walked to a man, by the lake's waters, with a dead deer by his side.

    • Aelfgar: Ah, my old friend, Grim! How wonderful to see you here! What a pleasant surprise.
    • Grim: What surprise? I came as you requested.
    • Aelfgar: Yes, and how is Grimsby? How are all the other Danes?
    • Grim: I can't speak for all Danes ... but I am well. And itching for a hunt, as you made plain in your message this morning.
    • Aelfgar: Yes, that's right, very good! Speaking of Danes, I'd like to introduce you to Eivor. Perhaps you know each other, as one Dane to another.

    • Eivor: Well met, Grim. Glad to have you along.

  • Eivor: I'm Norse, actually. Something you might learn by asking. Well met, Grim. Glad to have you along.

  • Eivor: Don't be frightened, Grim. But I believe Aelfgar has arranged for us to meet.
  • Aelfgar: O, goodness, I've been discovered. But it's nothing untoward, I promise. I'm an honest man, and I believe that all people should live together in harmony. That's all.

  • Grim: Hail Eivor. Did he lure you here as well, with the promise of a hunt?
  • Eivor: He—
  • Aelfgar: Yes, hunting a bear! That's the point of all this, we're hunting. I promise.
  • Eivor and Grim grew annoyed.

    • Grim: There's a cave up the hill there. Seems a likely place for a lair.
    • Eivor: If the beast is as large as Aelfgar claims, it'll take all three of us to bring it down.
    • Grim: I'm game. Let's get a new fur cloak, shall we?

    Grim, Eivor, and Aelfgar went to a cave uphill.

    • Grim: There is all manner of beasts in this forest. If we don't find the bear, we'll find something worth our supper.
    • Aelfgar: I have a divine rule over the land on my estate. God shall provide, have no worry.

    The trio entered the cave and searched for the bear, only to find a half-eaten horse.

    • Eivor: This is the threshold of a beast's home, there's no doubting that.

    Wolves appeared and attacked the trio.

    • Eivor: That's not a bear... Wolves!
    • Grim: Ach, wolves! Ravenous troll-steeds.
    • Aelfgar: Wolves everywhere, and not a bear in sight.

    The trio of hunters defeated the wolves as Grim looked at Aelfgarstun.

    • Grim: Aelfgar? Eivor? There's something you'll want to see here.

    The trio saw Aelfgarstun being burned down.

    • Aelfgar: Is that ... that's smoke! My God! My estate is burning like a twig!
    • Eivor: Soon to be a sea of fire.
    • Aelfgar: Eivor, you're skilled enough, and I can't tell you how to handle this, but ... please, by God, help me with this!
    • Eivor: I'm in this fight with you! A clutch of puny Mercians don't frighten me.

    The trio ran to save Aelfgarstun from complete destruction,

    • Aelfgar: My people are fleeing. They must get to safety.
    • Grim: Someone waited until you were away to set your world aflame.
    • Eivor: I'll send them straight to Hell, the marauding menaces!

    The trio started to fight the soldiers.

    • Aelfgar: The crops, the fields! They're burning the food!
    • Grim: Food's no good if there's nowhere to eat it! The houses burn, Eivor!
    • Anglo-Saxon Soldier 1: Where is Aelfgar? Bloody Dane-lover? Search every last house, then burn them when you're through!
    • Grim: Die!
    • Anglo-Saxon Soldier 2: Take the thegn! Kill the rest.
    • Anglo-Saxon Soldier 3: Burn this Dane-lover down!
    • Anglo-Saxon Soldier 4: Burn it all! Down to ashes!
    • Grim: Mercian dogs!

    After defeating the assailants, Eivor spoke with Aelfgar.

    • Eivor: The men who'd see you burn are dead. Let's get these fires out.
    • Aelfgar: Agreed!

    Eivor and Aelfgar discuss the rebuilding of Aelfgarstun

    The three put out the fires.

    • Aelfgar: What a mess. A sea of ashes. I thank you, Eivor, for doing what you could.
    • Eivor: You're a man of many riches, Aelfgar. You can rebuild.
    • Aelfgar: To be sure. But I do not look forward to the toil of...

    Aelfgar paused and laughed as he pointed in the distance.

    • Aelfgar: Sweet Lord in Heaven. The bear has returned!

    The bear returned and attacked the remaining civilians.

    • Aelfgar: Away, beast! Away! You won't trouble me any longer.
    • Eivor: Aelfgar, careful!

    After killing the bear, Eivor decided to go to Lincoln.

    • Eivor: The shiremoot will start soon. I should return to Lincoln to see that it goes well.

    Outcome

    Eivor and Aelfgar met with Grim to hunt for a bear. However, Aelfgarstun was raided by Saxons during the hunt and the trio made it back to save the estate. After defeating the raiders, the trio saw that the bear came and killed it afterwards.
