The Account of Snorri Rangnarssonar

____


This is the account of Sorri Ragnarssonar, as taken from the book Snorrisaugar.

Snorri Ragnarssonar was born to Anna Mardonsdåttir and Helden Ragnarsson.  Although he lived with them, Snori took the name Ragnarssonar, meaning 'Ragnar's Grandson'.  This was due to his close relationship with his grandfather; his real father was a drunk and a thief.

Snorri's father was finally put in prison for stealing several pieces of jewelry from a neighbor.  At this time, Snorri was 16, which was the age of manhood on Ancient Alba.  Since he had denounced his father's name and instead taken his respectable grandfather's, Snorri was not shamed like the rest of his immediate family.  

Unfortunately for him, Snorri's mother blamed him for his father's imprisonment, telling him that if he had helped with the crime, they would have gotten away with it. She openly mocked him and disowned him. Broken, Snorri left his home village of Bjergsmorgonsstarre and sought out work in the closest city, Suğurhamn,

In Suğurhamn, Snorri attended the Håskollann Suğurdamns, where he trained in Blacksmithing.  After his graduation, Snorri opened a shop in the large port town.  One of many such blacksmiths, he had much fierce competition. To cope with the competitors, Snori led an expedition to the north of Alba, where few men lived.  He wanted to find the ancient mine of Minğrulrakinn, in search of Minğrul, a revered metal which gives surprising strength to swords...

Here's 200 words in my conlang. (English first, Alska second)

The words themselves do not exactly match up, as the genitive case in Alska takes up 2 words where it would take 3 or 4 in English, but I still get 200 words across with the same message.
