    I'm replaying this right now. It's much improved from when it was released, greatly enjoying it. The atmosphere is really superb, I just fucking love the idea of these games. Roleplaying in historical settings is awesome. And I love the "split" in the campaigns. It's great when you get finish up the first part and head across the sea. Such a cool thing.
    Next game though... please look at the looting system again because as of right now, that is easily the worst part of Expeditions: Viking. Just mindlessly clicking all the containers and taking everything feels completely out of touch with the rest of the game. I mean, you don't have to take absolutely everything in Ribe but it's all there, right in your face with no consequences if you take it (well, unless you mess with the few containers marked as owned). Those beautiful areas deserve so much better.

    Also, I don't have a save handy anymore but I had one crash with this latest patch. When you're entering the tomb in that village area far to the east of Ribe. I chose to sacrifice 3 thralls to gain entrance. And at the end of the sacrifice dialogue (I think my final choice there was "My thanks" or whatever) the game crashed. However, it managed to autosave there as well so I didn't have to replay a whole bunch of stuff.
    But still, maybe something to look into there.

    Hell yeah, can't get enough historical fiction. I imagine it requires a lot of research on the developer's part to achieve such a level of authenticity. If you haven't played it already, check out Expeditions: Conquistador. A major historical figure vanishes and you're left to fulfil his role.

    Aaaaand finished my replay. Great game, much more enjoyable now than it was on release. Just a lot more stable, the "surprise round" does a lot to take some of the frustrations of combat away, the changes on how to cap out skills are good, resource management/healing injuries while camping feels a bit more balanced. As I said before, my biggest annoyance about the game is the looting system which feels odd and a bit of a timewaster.

    I opted into the beta right before I finished the game. I have to say that being able to get up on the palisades for the fight where Skjern is attacked made the fight a *lot* easier than I rememberd it (maybe I remember it wrong though, not sure) but it's fine. Just makes sense.

    Great stuff.
