    I actually think it just makes it a lot more convenient, wouldn't having an entire forum dedicated to a game on the forum front page draw more attention to it than an occasional bump on the main discussion forums?

    also just a little question about the berserker trivia, is it addressing what a berserker will be in the game, or are you implying that berserkers actually existed as described? Because that is pretty dubious, the modern interpretation of berserkers is likely as real as horned helmets.

    I like how each newsletter starts with the greeting "Heil og sæl", which is the Norwegian National Socialist version of "Sieg Heil". It was promoted by Vidkun Quisling. That being said, it's of course of norse origin and suitable for the setting.

    I agree. I usually forget they even exist. By the time I visit, most discussions are already a couple of days old.

    I like this an all, took me awhile to adjust to playin an Orlanthi style in King of Dragon Pass, but it were rewardin an really set tone o settin. Plus readin sagas an stuff you get that slightly alien vibe, a man is a king who goes into a Thing declares himself one an walks out alive, or be brave and fierce but not so fierce that your neighbours gather and burn you alive in your home.

    I'm surprised Vikings int gettin more attention an all, got more roleplayin elements than a lotta "proper" RPGs.

    Is the principle of supply and demand, my friend. These threads exist because posters are willing to waste their time with them and not the other way around.

    Fucking hell! Reminds me o me youth when I were on terraces wi me mates, "Come an av a go if you think your ard enough," "Your gonna get your fuckin head kicked in," "Your goin home in a fuckin ambulance," "Hes fat, hes round, his arse is on the ground: Atkinson, Atkinson." Love it if we see some similar funny insults an threats in Vikings, cunt's still me favourite Old Norse vulgarity.

    I'm all for a "Bloody Mess" perk for the characters.

    Have enemies who witness their friends pop suffer a charisma penalty :)

    Bit of both. You can get injuries in specific parts of your body, each with their penalties. The cost to treat those injuries, and the risk of them getting worse, depends on the type of injury. When a character gets killed in combat though, it doesn't have any bearing what pre-existing injuries they had, the dismemberment is more of an aesthetic (and communication) thing.

    so it's like conquistador's injury system, but more detailed with specific body part stuff?

    looks cool, altho probably gotta be funny if you buddy got dismembered in combat, and the doctors are still able to fix them up and running

    Yeah that would be a bit weird. In this case though, dismemberment = death.

    Will Viking include an encyclopedia like Conquistador did?
