      I had several problems with this section where I couldn't find words as well
      as just not knowing what was meant.

      Grace



      Kvæggan Dúkússon kom skipi sínu til Íslands í Nobudal. Þat var á skipi sonr
      hans Óbívan.

      Kvaeggan Duku's son brought his ship to Iceland in Nobudale. On (the) ship
      was his son, Obiwan.

      Kvæggan setti bú saman. Um várit forði Kvæggan bú sitt norðr yfir heiði ok
      gerði bú

      Kvaeggan set up a farm. During the spring Kvaeggan moved his home north
      over (the) heath and made a farm there,

      þar, sem heitir í Nobu. Ok eina nótt dreymði hann, at foðurfaðir hans Jóði
      kom at honum

      that was called in Nobu. And one night he dreamt that his grandfather,
      Yoda, came to him

      ok mælti: "Þar liggr þú, Kvæggan, ok heldr óvarliga. For þú á brott bú þitt
      ok vestr yfir

      and spoke, "There you lie, Kvaeggan, and rather unwarily. You move your
      farm away and west over

      Nobufljót. Þar er heill þín oll." Eptir þat vaknar hann ok forir bú sitt út
      yfir Tattúíná í

      Nobu River. There is all safe for you." After that he awakens and moves
      his farm out over Tattuine River to

      Tattúínárdal, þar sem síðan heitir á Kvæggansstoðum.

      Tattuine River Dale, there which is named Kvaeggan's steads after that.

      Vattó hét maðr, er bjó at þeim bo, er at Mósæslastoðum heitir. Þat er í
      Tattúínárdal.

      A man is named Vatto, who lived at that farm which is named at Mosaesl
      steads. That is in Tattuine River Dale.

      Hann átti þý þá, er Smý hét. Hon var ekkja ok átti einn son laungetinn, ok
      hét hann

      He had a bondwoman there who was called Smy. She was widowed and had one
      son out of wedlock and he was named

      Anakinn himingangari. Hon sagði, at hann væri sonr Fossa, frænda Jóða
      Gormóarsonar,

      Anakinn Skywalker. She said that he was a son of Fossi, kinsman of Yoda,
      son of Gorm

      en Kvæggan vissi ekki þat. Var hann því kallaðr Anakinn himingangari, at
      hann hljóp

      but Kvaeggan did not know that. He was called Anakin Skywalker for this,
      that he leaped

      meir en hæð sína, ok hann hljóp svá hátt, at hann þótti á lopti at ganga.

      higher than his (own) height and he leaped so high that it seemed he went
      aloft.

      Vattó hendi mikit gaman at aflraunum ok leikum. Um þat þótti honum gott at
      ræða.

      Vatto took great delight in games of bodily exercise and play. Concerning
      that (people) thought him good at speaking?

      Anakinn var kappsamr mjok ok reiðinn, ok var hann mjok at glímum.

      Anakin was very impetuous and hot tempered and he was good at wrestling.

      Glímuleikr var lagiðr á Mósæslastoðum allfjolmennr á ondverðan vetr lengi
      eptir

      A wrestling match was arranged at Mosaesla Steads for a great crowd of
      people at the beginning of winter long after

      Kvæggan kom til Íslands. Sóttu menn þar til víða um herað. Heimamenn
      Kvæggans fóru

      Kvaeggan came to Iceland. People looked? there widely about (the) district?
      Kvaeggans servants went

      þangat til leiks margir. Óbívan Kvæggansson var helzt fyrir þeim. Óbívan var
      þá tuttugu

      thither to (the) great games. Obiwan Kvaeggan's son was most ahead of them?
      Obiwan was then twenty

      vetra gamall. Hann var snimhendis mikill ok styrkr at afli, karlmannlegr at
      allri skapan,

      years old. He was very ???? and stronger in power, more manly in all
      aspects,

      nakkvat skolbrúnn ok nefljótr en þó vel farit andlitsskopunum, jarpr á hár
      ok fór vel hárit.

      somewhat brown and with an ugly nose but still with well formed features,
      chestnut of hair and the hair suited (him).

      Hann var kallaðr Víga-Óbívan.

      He was called Slayer Obiwan.

      Þá var Anakinn á níunda vetr. Hann hlaut at leika við svein þann, er Jarjari
      hét, sonr

      Anakin was nine years old then. He got to play with that boy, who was named
      Jarjar, son



      Georgs af Gungastoðum. Jarjari var ellifu vetra eða tíu ok sterkr at jofnum
      aldri. En er

      of George of Gunga's steads. Jarjar was ten or eleven years old and
      stronger at any? age. But when



      þeir lékusk við, þá var Anakinn ósterkari. Jarjari gerði ok þann mun allan,
      er hann mátti.

      they played with each other, then Anakin was not stronger. Jarjar did also
      all that ?? which he could.



      Jarjari tók hann hondum ok keyrði hann niðr fall mikit ok lék hann heldr
      illa ok kveðzk

      Jarjar took him by (the) hand and flung him down, a great fall, and played
      him (or he played?) rather badly and said of himself



      mundu meiða hann, ef hann kynni sik eigi. En er Anakinn komsk á fotr, þá
      gekk hann ór

      he would harm him if he didn't behave? well. But when Anakin got on his
      feet, then he went out



      leiknum, en sveinarnir opðu at honum.

      of the games and boys shouted at him.
