Here are the first sentences I turned into indirect speech. Can you please have a look at them?

1)A knight called Sir Pellinore warned him not to go past that fountain because he should (?) have fought with him first.Merlin told (instructed, ordered) Pellinore to stop fighting because that knight was King Arthur.
2)Arthur told Merlin that he had broken his sword during the fight with Sir Pellinore. He needed to (had to ??) have another sword because he was the king.Merlin invited Arthur to ask kindly the Lady of the Lake for the sword.
3)Arthur obeyed Merlin and asked her kindly for the sword.She agreed to Arthur’s request and told him to take her boat and get it.
4) Arthur got it and noticed that the word Excalibur was written on it. Merlin revealed him the Excalibur was the greatest sword in the world but its scabbard was more precious.
5) In fact, it had a great magic power. He explained that when someone wore it, he/they never bled (they would never bleed). He also advised him to have the scabbard always with him when he fought.
