Loki states that this is because "Freyja" had not slept for eight nights in her eagerness. The gods think that this is great, and flay the skin from the otter to make a bag.
Upon seeing the skin, Regin and Hreidmar "seized them and made them ransom their lives" in exchange for filling the otterskin bag the gods had made with gold and covering the exterior of the bag with red gold.
At the falls, Loki spreads his net before Andvari who is in the form of a pike , which Andvari jumps into. The stanzas of the poem then begin: Loki mocks Andvari, and tells him that he can save his head by telling Loki where his gold is.
Andvari gives some background information about himself, including that he was cursed by a " norn of misfortune" in his "early days". Loki responds by asking Andvari "what requital" does mankind get if "they wound each other with words".
Andvari responds that lying men receive a "terrible requital": Loki looks over the gold that Andvari possesses, and after Andvari hands over all of his gold, Andvari holds on to but a single ring; the ring Andvarinaut , which Loki also takes.
Andvari, now in the form of a dwarf, goes into a rock, and tells Loki that the gold will result in the death of two brothers, will cause strife between eight princes, and will be useless to everyone.
Loki returns, and the three gods give Hreidmar the money from the gold hoard and flatten out the otter skin, stretch out its legs, and heap gold atop it, covering it.
Hreidmar looks it over, and notices a single hair that has not been covered. Hreidmar demands that it be covered as well. Odin puts forth the ring Andvarinaut, covering the single hair.
Loki states that they have now handed over the gold, and that gold is cursed as Andvari is, and that it will be the death of Hreidmar and Regin both.
Further, with the hoard, he will have red gold for the rest of his life. Hreidmar tells them to leave, and the poem continues without further mention of Loki.
This stanza is followed by:. In the second of the two stanzas, Loki is referred to as Lopt. After some debate, the gods agree to these conditions, but place a number of restrictions on the builder, including that he must complete the work within three seasons without the help of any man.
The gods declare that Loki deserves a horrible death if he cannot find a scheme that will cause the builder to forfeit his payment, and threaten to attack him.
Loki, afraid, swears oaths that he will devise a scheme to cause the builder to forfeit the payment, whatever it may cost himself.
The two horses run around all night, causing the building to be halted and the builder is then unable to regain the previous momentum of his work.
Loki and Thor stop at the house of a peasant farmer, and there they are given lodging for a night. Thor slaughters his goats, prepares them, puts them in a pot, and Loki and Thor sit down for their evening meal.
Thor invites the peasant family who own the farm to share with him the meal he has prepared, but warns them not to break the bones. They continue through the woods until dark.
The four seek shelter for the night. They encounter an immense building. Finding shelter in a side room, they experience earthquakes through the night.
The earthquakes cause all four but Thor, who grips his hammer in preparation of defense, to be fearful. The building turns out to be the huge glove of Skrymir , who has been snoring throughout the night, causing what seemed to be earthquakes.
All four sleep beneath an oak tree near Skrymir in fear. The four travelers continue their journey until midday. They find themselves facing a massive castle in an open area.
The castle is so tall that they must bend their heads back to their spines to see above it. At the entrance to the castle is a shut gate, and Thor finds that he cannot open it.
Struggling, all four squeeze through the bars of the gate, and continue to a large hall. Inside the great hall are two benches, where many generally large people sit on two benches.
Loki, standing in the rear of the party, is the first to speak, claiming that he can eat faster than anyone. A trencher is fetched, placed on the floor of the hall, and filled with meat.
Loki and Logi sit down on opposing sides. The two eat as quickly as they can and meet at the midpoint of the trencher. Loki consumed all of the meat off of the bones on his side, yet Logi had not only consumed his meat, but also the bones and the trencher itself.
It was evident to all that Loki had lost. Thor agrees to compete in a drinking contest but after three immense gulps fails. Thor agrees to lift a large, gray cat in the hall but finds that it arches his back no matter what he does, and that he can raise only a single paw.
The two wrestle but the harder Thor struggles the more difficult the battle becomes. Thor is finally brought down to a single knee. The next morning the group gets dressed and prepares to leave the keep.
The contests, too, were an illusion. The old woman Thor wrestled was in fact old age Elli , Old Norse "old age" , and there is no one that old age cannot bring down.
Only a wide landscape remains. Loki is mentioned in stanza 13 of the Norwegian rune poem in connection with the Younger Futhark Bjarkan rune:. In , a semi-circular flat stone featuring a depiction of a mustachioed face was discovered on a beach near Snaptun, Denmark.
Made of soapstone that originated in Norway or Sweden, the depiction was carved around the year CE and features a face with scarred lips.
The stone is identified as a hearth stone; the nozzle of the bellows would be inserted into the hole in the front of the stone, and the air produced by the bellows pushed flame through the top hole, all the while the bellows were protected from the heat and flame.
The stone may point to a connection between Loki and smithing and flames. This figure is sometimes theorized as depicting the bound Loki.
A depiction of a similarly horned and round-shouldered figure was discovered in Gainford, County Durham and is now housed in the Durham Cathedral Library.
The midth century Gosforth Cross has been interpreted as featuring various figures from Norse mythology and, like the Kirkby Stephen Stone, is also located in Cumbria.
The bottom portion of the west side of the cross features a depiction of a long-haired female, kneeling figure holding an object above another prostrate, bound figure.
Above and to their left is a knotted serpent. This has been interpreted as Sigyn soothing the bound Loki. The notion of Loki survived into the modern period in the folklore of Scandinavia.
In Denmark, Loki appeared as Lokke. An example from reads as follows:. And in Thy , from the same source: Olrik detects three major themes in folklore attestations; Lokke appeared as an "air phenomenon", connected with the "home fire", and as a "teasing creature of the night".
The tale notably features Loki as a benevolent god in this story, although his slyness is in evidence as usual. Regarding scholarship on Loki, scholar Gabriel Turville-Petre comments that "more ink has been spilled on Loki than on any other figure in Norse myth.
This, in itself, is enough to show how little scholars agree, and how far we are from understanding him. In , Jacob Grimm was first to produce a major theory about Loki, in which he advanced the notion of Loki as a "god of fire".
After World War II , four scholarly theories dominated. In , Jan de Vries theorized that Loki is a typical example of a trickster figure.
In , by way of excluding all non-Scandinavian mythological parallels in her analysis, Anna Birgitta Rooth concluded that Loki was originally a spider.
Anne Holtsmark , writing in , concluded that no conclusion could be made about Loki. When a block is placed while sneaking, the placing action is mimicked on all of those positions, allowing for one to place a large amount of blocks at once.
This ability also extends to destruction using the Terra Shatterer or Terra Truncator. Such a power does not come for free of course.
The Ring of Loki can also be combined with the other two rings of the Aesir in a crafting table to create the Ring of the Aesir.
