ODINS RUNES

LIEF ERIKSON HAS FOUND NEW LANDS.  THESE LANDS ARE TO THE WEST AT THE EDGE OF THE SETTING SUN.  THEY ARE GREENLANDS . . .

ALTERNATIVE HISTORY

It could have been the greatest discovery of all time but it wasn’t to be.  Lief was not the man his father Erik was, Erik could have brought hundreds to the shores of America but Erik the Red had fallen from his horse and did not take part in the discovery, he died shortly after.    

The word of the discovery arrives early in Norway.  It is good timing, the population is growing fast and land is in short supply, Erik the Red is a hero and many believe the way is west. 

This is not an easy journey, a season to Iceland, a season to Green land and a season on to Vin Land.

Every second son wants to go.  All they need is a ship and followers . . .


I am starting a skirmish campaign.  Ask the old hands, my skirmish campaigns have always been good.   You need no figures, I will provide them. The games will be played out at meetings but will only take up short periods of the gaming day and not everybody will need to fight.  

Those of you who sign up for the venture will be Jarls, you will lead your followers to Vinland and brave other settlers and Scrawlings alike.   How much you battle is up to you but your settlement is all you have.  You may form alliances or you may go it alone . . .

Like any rush for a New World, you can hang back and wait, but if you do you risk the chance that the best opportunities and land have gone.
