The Great Thane sits and listens to the news with a dour expression, the mead passing around the fire gets lower by larger incriments as he listens to the news. (His Gotti's face remains stony, but a flicker passes over it, either of fear or joy, but no one is going to ask him.

Eventually, when the details are discussed, the Great Thane nods to his skald, who's feet thump to the ground as he brings himself to his full hight and tilts back his head:

Jarl Uhtred

Broad of body

Swift of sword

Down in the dark he died

Jarl Uhtred

Jarl by his own hand

Sword thane and thunder shield

Down in the dark he died

Jarl Uhtred

Man slayer

Beast Bane

Down in the dark he died

Jarl Uhtred

Both master and servant

Both King and Curr

Down in the dark he died

Jarl Uhtred

Servant to no man

Slave to his bane (for a spear found him in his mistress’s land)

Down in the dark he died

Jarl Uhtred

May his ancestors see him and his know him,

Down the line of his fathers and his mothers,

To the halls of the brave were the warriors rest

For down in the dark he died
