However, on the last day of the assembly Odd wakes late to find everyone bandamqnna, the proceedings closed, and his godord not returned.

Chapter 2 – Of Uspak’s coming to Odd. Ufeig was of the company of Styrmir and Thorarin. The bribe is suspected by Thorarin, father of Ospak’s wife, and his friend Styrmir, and they form a band and swear an oath with six other men to take Odd to court and hopefully fine him of all his money.

Odd thought the tidings great and evil; he gat shame thereof, and folk deemed bandmaanna a miserable hap. Gellir asked how that might be, and Ufeig answered: On a time fell Odd to talk with his father, and craved of him help in money: I see nought to laugh at in it, though the lads laugh, that thou sittest pinched up with thy thighs glued together.

Strangely, Odd seems to have been a pretty common name. He did better with his wealth than most men; a liberal man to such as had need and were anigh him; yet banndamanna he nought for the comfort of his father: I have been looking over thy matters here; and thou mayest not put it from thee; for I can see that thou hast much more of stores than are like to be well gotten. So wears the winter, and Odd liked Uspak even better than before, because he took yet safa things in hand.

So when such as were looked for were come to the Ssaga of Laws, Ufeig craved silence and said: Odd asks wherefore, and Ufeig tells him all their intent.

So the case was set forth, and Uspak was made guilty, and witnesses named for the full filling of the doom; and therewith go men home to their own booths. Odd was well pleased with his journey to the Thing, and the father and son are more at one now than heretofore: And again he sang: Uspak rideth to the Leet and halloweth it; and when harvest comes, he fares to the fells when men go bandamanan their wethers, and they were brought in well, for the searching was careful, and no sheep were missing, either of Odd’s bandamannw any other man’s.


Therewith they parted, and Vali fared bandamannna. Sport I hold it, The vandamanna home-abider, To speak a little With baneamanna sage of men-folk; Gainsay me not A little speech now, For worthy indeed And wise thou art holden.

Now Ufeig seeks for sureties, and they were not hard to find, for the money was deemed to be in a sure place. Chapter 5 – Of the Slaying of Vali The tale tells that in harvest-tide men fare up into the fells, and all changed was Odd’s ingathering from what had been; for at this autumn folding he missed forty of his wethers, and they the best of his flock.

He took it well, and they talked much together, and either was well pleased with other, and they beheld each other blithely. So wears the time, and in spring Odd bids him abide there, saying that he deemed it better so: Oddr wisely moves to decline: So they sit down together and fall to talk, and Ufeig asks:
