The members of MEGA have started a new campaign, the fourth in our ongoing series.
Rather than a serious effort to best Lee or Rommel or Halsey, this campaign is merely intended to
capture those brutish days when Norsemen sailed upon the frigid North Sea and made their
fortunes mostly by visiting mayhem upon civilized shores. Each player will play the patriarch of a
household. With a small force of underlings (House-karls and simple karls) players must balance
the needs of an extended family for food and protection with a need to raid and conquer. The
object is to become a Norse Legend by amassing 1,000 "reputation points." Points are earned in
combat, through pillaging and the like. The Viking were a vibrant, if violent, breed and this game
is meant to played with reckless gusto.
The campaign began with four players randomly selecting the people and items necessary
to play the campaign. The set up time took about forty minutes.
This page provides links to the sagas that are being written as the campaign progresses. Each
saga is written by the player involved, so they will give you some different perspectives on what is
going on. If a player is absent one week the entry will either be blank or very short. For the
campaign rules see " Pigs and Glory." For some material
on random events and treasures, see "Battle Troll."
