Here's the saga of Egill Skallagrimsson, a viking from the distant Norwegian past. He was also kind of an asshole. Anyway, he treks around Norway, inspiring his followers and killing everyone else. Hey, he's a viking! It's kind of what they do.
Around the Chapter 46 mark, Egill gets captured and locked up. He would've been captured and gutted, except it was dark outside and the dude holding Egill prisoner wanted everyone to be able to watch Egill suffer. Gotta love a good public execution. Fun for the whole family!
