Eivor enountered a drengr yearning for death.
- Hogne Sea-Tossed: Have you been brought by Njord to send these sun-bleached bones to the bottom of the sea? Do you have the courage to face one thrice-cursed by fate?
Eivor spoke with Hogne.
- Eivor: Salt-licked soldier, you've ... lived here for some time.
- Hogne Sea-Tossed: I call to Njord, Lord of the Sea, till my throat bleeds with grief, but he only sends fish and other things to sustain me. And now you have come.
- Eivor: Why do you complain to Njord like this? And what has it to do with me?
- Hogne Sea-Tossed: I scorned the gods and pitched into the sea for my arrogance. Thorgest thought me dead and sailed off into legend.
- Eivor: The old King of Dublin? That Thorgest?
- Hogne Sea-Tossed: Send me down into Njord's cold embrace. I can't simply give myself to the waves. Will you give me an honorable death?
(Accept – "I will fight you.")
- Eivor: You will sleep with sea-serpents this night.
- Hogne Sea-Tossed: I will not make this easy. I must earn this death.
Both Eivor and Hogne walk to an open space.
- Hogne Sea-Tossed: I pledge this death to Njord.
- Eivor: Your death.
- Hogne Sea-Tossed: Whoever falls first.
- Hogne Sea-Tossed: You must cut deeper. I was Thorgest's strongest.
Eivor began to weaken Hogne amidst their battle.
- Hogne Sea-Tossed: Ah, it is like when I fought at Thorgest's side.
Hogne was weakened further as the fight continued.
- Hogne Sea-Tossed: This is my day, do not let me down.
Eivor defeated Hogne and spoke with him one last time.
- Hogne Sea-Tossed: At last. A fisher once told me I would find peace near the sea. Yet know, another sad survivor of Thorgest's crew still walks...
Hogne succumbed to his wounds as Eivor sent him off to Valhalla then claimed the Dublin Champion Breeches from Hogne's personal effects. Thus, Eivor traveled around Ireland searching for Hogne's crewmate and soon came across the Giant's Causeway in northern Ulster, where she heard a woman shouting aloud as she carved a piece of wood.
- Blud the Giant: Dead! Dead! And dead! You can never eat too much death!
Eivor spoke with Blud.
- Eivor: Stop, drengr. Have you lost your wits? Why berate a man long dead?
- Blud the Giant: This soldier promised deathly peace. He claimed he'd bested foe after foe, each left more dead than the last.
- Eivor: He is dead himself. You cannot kill him better.
- Blud the Giant: I sailed with the mighty Thorgest! I deserve my place in the great hall! An honorable death is all I ask. Could you, stranger, could you give me a just fight and, at long last, release me from this cursed life?
(Accept - "I will fight you.")
- Eivor: You have suffered mightily. You deserve a seat next to Odin.
- Blud the Giant: Let it be so!
Both Eivor and Blud walked towards the middle of the causeway.
- Blud the Giant: Come. One of us will find the great hall.
- Blud the Giant: Much more promise than the others. You do not fight like a dolt.
Eivor and Blud continued to battle as Blud started to weaken more.
- Blud the Giant: I begin to weaken, stranger. It is now that I am most dangerous!
Eivor looked certain to win the duel against Blud.
- Blud the Giant: Valhalla calls. But I shall not die easily!
Eivor defeated Blud and spoke with her one last time.
- Blud the Giant: You have released me, clever stranger. Another of Thorgest's crew, such as I, survives. I long to see him at Odin's feast.
Blud succumbed to her wounds as Eivor sent her off to Valhalla then claimed the Dublin Champion Armor from Blud's personal effects, as well as a note.
- Final Words of Thorgest
I, the Viking Thorgest, here scribble what words I can.
Time and wounds are the only foes I cannot defeat. Here, I will rest in the cam waters of this lake, so unlike the stormy sea which brought me to this isle.
Can any man gainsay my deeds? I have conquered those I could, and made peace with those I could not. All except the treacherous Malachy! He who dangled his daughter before me like a polished bauble, then took to anger when I wished to better acquaint myself.
But all that is years past. Time now for the cool waters that greet me, my pockets filled with stones.
Following the drengir's last words, Eivor traveled and explored Lough Neagh. In the middle of the lake, Eivor found a small island and probed its surroundings, looking near its shore and underwater until she found Thorgest's skeleton and claimed his personal shield.
- Eivor: The mighty Thorgest. A fitting remembrance.
Eivor defeated Thorgest's last two drengir in ritual combat. After the last battle, Eivor investigated Lough Neagh and discovered Thorgest's resting place and claimed his shield for her own.
