From the official transcripts of the Wizard’s Council……..
Finally the Wizard’s Council has convened and is poised to act. The legendary sword of the Rathskellar is in the hands of the Happy Little Viking! Is the missing piece of parchment to be believed or will the sword turn the tide of war in favor of the Vikings? Too much is at stake to allow the Viking to keep the sword!

After what seemed like endless debate, Barlekis the Wizard raised his voice. “If there is not one of you willing to meet the Viking on the field of honor then I will take up the magical staff of Rightwiseness and force the showdown! I will recover the sword and bring an end to this conflict!”
