Magnus Riese

"And they said to the warrior,
On his return from the southlands,
What did you see?
What were they like?
How did they speak?
And he replied,
They were as towers of charcoal and flame,
They were as death, and famine, and desolation,
And when they spoke embers danced upon their tongues.
They are not as we,
And so we should fear them."

~Strykkässen Saga, Act Three, Verse One. (Trans.)
