Among the sparse greenery of the North lie the stories of the people that were not afraid to take what they claimed was theirs...
Travel in time to the Viking Age – harsh, yet riveting period of history. Never knowing what tomorrow may bring, the Vikings were always ready to set out into the unknown. They had to fight and rule, but also to just live in the unfriendly northern lands. And since their hearts were yearning for the adventure, they were often shipping out in search for a better life and treasures.
Visit the Vikings’ settlements hidden in the valleys shadowed by giant mountains, as well as those on the banks of the glacial, crystal clear streams. Enter the pathless forests and discover a world beyond your imagination. But not everything will be as pleasant – you will also have to gather the feeble harvest and struggle with the barely arable soil. Sometimes it’s just better to move on!
Prepare the longships, gather the skillful crew, put on a helmet, grab an axe and set out for the expedition! Conquer, fight and meet other jarls. Be careful when sharing the spoils – it’s easy to make enemies and become a target of a personal vendetta. Decide on your strategy and set the goals. Do you wish to be the bravest warrior? To be driven by the blood lust? To be fair and honorable? Be the Viking you choose to be!
It’s crucial to pick the right armor. Spears, bows, axes, swords – all of these have their pros and cons. Create your weapon of choice and prepare for the combat. Assemble the warriors and throw yourself into the battle. Don’t lean under the fusillade of blows and fight for your life and glory. The loot will be worth it, so don’t let anyone stand in your way, albeit remember that there is not always a happy ending... Sometimes you will have to say goodbye to your dearest companions, as their bodies will flow in the burning boats to rejoin the sea for the very last time.
Even the most courageous need a moment to rest. Can you hear those soothing sounds of the flute? Sit by the fire and listen to the melody whistled under the pines. Watch the sparks fly from the fire and enjoy the company of your friends. Don’t mind the turmoil and the men’s coarseness – drink wine, enjoy the peace, since no one knows how long it may last.
And maybe you will even start a family when the right time comes?
The waves are washing the shore and your feet are sinking in the sand, as you are standing at the border between the dark water and the frosty land. Longboats are bobbing on the sea and your stout companions are talking loudly and laughing somewhere behind you. You are a free man, nothing can hold you back and the whole world is yet to be conquered. What are you waiting for? Just go for it!
You are a Viking after all!
