|Stone 01 - Drawing 01||Narrator||Ragnar was the greatest warrior ever seen in the land, he was of great size, handsome in appearance, generous to his men and fierce to his enemies.||Drawing of beautiful Ragnar starts to glow.||Path 01.|

|Player moves to third glowing tale-teller stone. Drawing of Ragnar being pressed down with shields starts to glow.|
|Stone 03 - Drawing 02||Narrator||So he thought wise to cast his prisoner in a snake pit, until he would tell him who he was. But in the end Ragnar died bitten by serpents, as he never revealed who he really was, until his final breaths. "The piglets would grunt now, if they knew what the old pig suffers. I have fought against foes in fifty-one battles in all, which seemed a splendid feat; I never imagined a snake for the ending of my life; many things may happen which men themselves expect least. Beside the beasts I'll die now, soon I will be a corpse."
These were his last words.
