The Vikings

Food is scarce in the Norse lands, and you and your sister, Freja, have heard tell of other Vikings travelling to England to start a new life. Led by the village headman Grim, however, some of your fellow villagers are more intent on pillaging and stealing than settling alongside your new Anglo-Saxon neighbours. When Freja is captured by King Alfred, you’re pulled into the fray. Can peace prevail?

  • Keep an amulet of Thor’s hammer to bring you luck
