Friends! Today is Vikings: War of Clans' birthday. Many Jarls have gathered together to celebrate this remarkable date. But an extraordinary incident occurred at the feast: someone stole the chamber owner's sacred sword. One scald kept a wary eye on the guests present and wrote down all that happened in his chronicles.
At the feast, each guest made wild boasts about the feats they had performed, and they didn't always tell the truth. But it is known that the thief is the biggest liar of them all. In the text of this story, the thief lied more than four times.
Read the scald's story and help identify the thief.
Scald: There were 6 Jarls sitting at the table: Bjorn, Ivar, Ragnar, Ulf, and Loki.
Bjorn was the biggest and strongest Jarl among all those gathered. He was the first who raised his horn and told the tale of his recent deeds.
Bjorn: My Clan has the best warriors. Yesterday, we formed a successful Onslaught on our rivals' Town and destroyed 5 million enemy Phantoms. After this victory, we yielded many Lumber from Lumberjacks' Sheds and sent it to our level 4 Clan Stronghold.
In the Stronghold, we unlocked the Ivar's Cap Draft – this pleased the Jarls of our Clan who use ranged warriors. By the way, almost all these Jarls already have Stieg the Sharp at the sixth stage.
Scald: Bjorn drained his raised goblet and returned to his seat. Following him, Ivar told his story. He had been wounded in a recent battle and couldn't stand, so unlike the rest, he remained seated while he spoke.
Ivar: My Clan is famous for its good farmers: we produce millions of resources in an hour! Thanks to that, we have managed to quickly upgrade absolutely all our Stronghold buildings to level 2.
In the upgraded Arms Guild, we immediately studied the Draft of Heimdallr's Horn. We had a stroke of luck recently: one of our Elders who uses only scouts successfully performed espionage. His warriors plundered the Town and brought us almost 3 million Lumber. The rest of the time, we banished Ghosts from our Kingdom. I personally banished about 15 Plague Ravens.
Scald: After finishing his story, Ivar sat down and gave the floor to Ragnar, a young Jarl of 12 years. Despite his age, Ragnar was quite eloquent, even more eloquent than his elder brother Loki.
Ragnar: Skål, Jarls! My Clan has passed through many difficulties and now we're not in fine form. But there was a time when we were one among the best, and I plan to regain our lost glory!
Our Clan already has 139 members, and we continue to grow. Just yesterday we gathered 100 million warriors in one Onslaught and attacked our old enemies. This was a difficult battle, but we managed to win the day and earn many points in the Clans Battle.
Later, to bring ourselves closer to victory in this contest, we trained many warriors and transformed almost a billion Food in the Stronghold. Our Elder helped us earn victory points in the Clans Battle by crafting several standard pieces of equipment in their Forge...
Scald: Loki tried to interrupt his elder brother – he couldn't wait to tell his story and to outshine Ragnar's story with his own. But Einar's heavy hand forced him to his seat. Loki wasn't a fool and didn't oppose Einar, the strongest among the gathered Jarls. Einar slapped his palms on the table and started telling his tale.
Einar: I want to tell you about my glorious battles. They don't call me Einar the Invincible for naught: no one can compare to me in battle.
My victories are mostly down to my skill at choosing weapons. My collection contains virtually every weapon you can imagine, and I love adding to it. In my last battle, I was able to win because my Hero used the Bronze Brooch. The Expert Repute assigned to me by the Konung also helped. On top of this, the valiant Elder of our Clan regularly sends Scrolls to the Stronghold, and we actively upgrade our Knowledge in the Shamans' Residence.
Scald: Einar removed his hand from Loki's shoulder, by this showing that he had finished his story and was now allowing Loki to speak. Loki stood up, rearranged his breast armor, looked around at all the gathered Jarls, and began to speak.
Loki: Our Clan is very powerful, and we actively participate in the Battle for the Throne of Jotunheim. One thing that prevents us from dominating in Jotunheim is that not all our Clan members have a full set of runes. We're doing our best to get the missing runes and strengthen our troops. Yesterday my brothers banished many Moon Wolves to get Storm runes.
Also, all our Clan members use tier 7 troops in battle. Today we finished learning the "Fleetness" Knowledge in the Shamans' Residence. Now our marches progress even faster!
Scald: Loki stood up from his chair and proudly bowed to the other Jarls.
After all the Jarls had told their stories, the chamber's owner thanked them and invited them to go to the courtyard. The guests left the chamber gradually. Each took a torch – these torches they all carried to the firepit. The celebratory bonfire was then set alight.
When everybody returned, the chamber's owner noticed that his sacred sword had disappeared.
