Hello. Welcome to the Call of Valhalla. This is a Historical Fiction Roleplay based on the Viking era back in the dark ages. Meaning things will be historically accurate, but I will cover that further in the rules.
This is for everyone who showed interest and supports the accuracy of the period.
1. Respect, you know what this means.
2. Follow site rules, sure things can get dark and gritty for our characters, but you can always keep it from going too far.
3. I am only going to say this once, no god mode! This means no reading thoughts, no knowing things you shouldn't know, NO AUTOHITTING other characters
4. No Gary or Mary sues.
5. Historical accuracy, meaning proper weapons, apparel, etc, no elves...
6. What GM’s say goes! No ifs, ands, or buts.
7. Have fun.
Ok, the back-story FINALLY!!!
It is the Dark Ages, and the fearless people of Scandinavia travel far and wide across Europe and parts of Asia. These ‘Vikings’ plied their skills as Traders or Raiders to suit their goals. Our story follows the events of several proud men and women from the north and their striving to survive in an unpredictable world.
Two ships left from the north end of Denmark (today the southern part of Sweden) bearing seafarers and rations. Their destination was Miklagard (today Turkey). They sailed their ships along rivers too shallow for others, and carried them across massive stretches of land to get to the next part of their journey. It was hard work, but they were hard people. Born and raised in the hostile Scandinavian area, where summers were hot enough to grow grapes, and winters cold enough to bury a full grown man standing straight in snow. When they finally arrived after many weeks of travelling they raided and plundered to their heart's content, the villagers of the land had barely a chance to defend themselves against the onslaught of the north. After a few successful raids they found themselves only a few warriors lighter, but their ships were full of silver, so they set off to go back home. This time they had to take the long way, sail west, round the place called al andaluse (Spain) and go north from there. But it didn’t matter, even weighed down by silver and with the men tired from fighting they would still outrun the Arab’s best ships. They were as good as home already. Or were they?
I know it is short, but this is a roleplay about the characters hardships not a history lesson.
