The players start as whelps left behind to guard the farms while the Earl takes his boats down to Denmark to trade then West to raid the foreign lands. It is spring and the player will have an entire year accumulate trade goods. If they can prove themselves during the Earl’s absence, he may take them raiding next year.

The PCs all own some land and live in a farmhouse but they are welcome to choice a Lapp hut. The Earl lives in a Trelleborg -style barracks.

It is spring so there is much farm work to be done but there seems to always be free time for hunting and training.

Social Background:

The PC and major NPCs form a drengr, which is a gang of youths who are sworn to one another.

Each player should choose a one friend, one ally and one rival from the from the possible PCs or 1st level NPCs. These people with help and honor the PC more then other people in the village except for the rival which will do the opposite. The allies, friend and rival may also be a part of the PCs drengr. This NPC list many also serve as backup characters should your PC come by a early ascent to Valhalla.

Note: Some PC already start with extra allies or rivals due to storyline so it is possible to have more then two friends, allies or rivals. Be sure to record this on your character sheet. You will gain and lose allies, friends and rivals during game play according to your actions.

Then prepare the PCs for a day of training with a few close friends.

Guthorm takes a group of young fighters and steals the village’s ship to go raiding locally. The Earl’s wife was very displeased with this.

During their an adventurous spring in the village, the PCs fought off a surprise boar wildmen attack on the village. Swanhild covered with arrows as Grimhild and Gabriel formed the back line of the shield wall, responsible for killing the wildmen the shield wall let through. Luckily the characters were victorious holding the wildmen off with with the help of the farmer Olf’s orders and the herder Brynhild’s bow cover.

The Earl’s wife threw a feast in their honor for defending the village.

After helping with a dire rat invasion of Eyolf’s shed and Gabriel’s foolhardy bear wrestling (in which Grimhild caught a claw across the face), the players sailed to the village of Islehelm to help the Lady Earl Hallfrid defend against a savage group of wolf wildmen. Many of the Earl’s were sick from wolf bites and Grimhild was unable to treate them. The leader of the wildmen turned out to be a white wolf shape changer but the PCs saved the village from their ravages of with a tactical ambush involving fire. By the fates the shape changers only weakness was fire. Borgar was badly injured during the battle.

They hunted down a small whale to help feed the starving village though Grimhild almost drown during the hunt.
