Well like i said it is not really that i focused on the story since i rather focused on the facts so the vikings would seem a bit more real, i tried to find everything i could about the vikings. So basically it got messy because of that sorry again... But when i am back to using fantasy it would be easier Also all the names mentioned are used by vikings the battle outside york is real, the soldiers he was expecting was real but no the amount tough I even checked up on the ranks like huscarls and bóndi (freemen) and that they were not fond of using bows, they wanted to get close to get the kill. It was not enough honor in bows, the vikings excelled in melee and cut down 10-1 ratio most of the time. When they want to curse someone they put nid in their name, they can curse someone by putting a horse skull on a pole pointing to the home of the one they want to curse. The vikings thought the power of the words to be equally as powerful as the sword. They did not want to drown as they would not go to valhalla then, the god of seafaring is commonly known as Njord or another name i don't remember. Thor is the god of the thunder with his hammer mjöllnir or something, Odin is the god over all the gods and got two birds which i dont remember the names on. So basically all this did i find just to make the vikings seem slightly real Basically this contributed to the poor formulating of the story since it was really just an explanation of how they got there i really wanted it to be accurate so sorry for messing up the story again.

Huginn and Muninn =)

I read again and was thinking one more thing..... i did not do any research so could be wrong ..... isnt the number 10k for units little unrealistic for vikings? tho i guess nordlands werent much populated and to collect that much army? The other thing is, werent vikings under somekind clan leaders, so it would be also little impossible to have 10k vikings under one leader.
Well i dont have much knowledge about vikings so can be wrong and this is just my thinking =).
In my opinion if this is prologue its little too much detailed and goes too much in story, i would end it where they woke up and saw land.

well like i said the numbers were unrealistic but everything else was as realistic as i could research it to. I mean the Norwegian vikings were perhaps in the lowest numbers, but occasionally to get a larger pray the vikings gathered boats as they went till they had a HUGE army as to win the fight. For vikings a common enemy united them most of the time. Also sometimes the sami (those who live in north of Scandinavia and a bit of Russia) that lived a bit souther then the others could join the vikings, but it was less frequent than the vikings attacking and pillaging the sami people. You know what, look at "veiviseren" it is a Norwegian version of the pathfinder with a similarity (basically it is the same story just in Norway with the vikings still evil. but it is the sami people instead of the native Americans.)

Ok i got a very sad announcement (i cant write at all this week ) Today we suddenly got 5 projects (still make a song thingie we got a dancing project and make a dagger (for me) also we got make a news paper and make a presentation about devastating biological weapons of mass destruction) Also we got some deliver tasks most commonly known as make a presentation about what all the five main religions have in common and this week we got a trip to the neightbor town and a day when we are supposed to visit another school so this week is totally stressful Sometimes i wish god existed because then he can save me A N Y D A Y Damned school, just when i thought the homework scaled down a little it was only because of this Well i won't be much on this forum this week so hopefully you make some good stories when i am away welshie. (P.S Even if this might seem a bit unrealistic it is totally realistic i don't think they even bothered to look up on who have a project when and where so they stacked everything over a week or three.) Also that make a paper is not totally for this week (we are just going to write a bunch of papers to have a starting point.)
