The Norse Are Coming!

NORSAv1.9.1b

In what had once been a one-way tide flowing south towards the shores of the Empire, the Sea of Claws turned into a battleground as vessels of various types clashed and collided. The sea became choked with flotsam and jetsam – listing raider hulls, a broken mast, a tattered sail, a barrel of salted fish, a bloated corpse. The Norse, who dearly held the tradition of raiding and pillaging close to heart, allowed themselves to be swayed by a bit of gold – they were going to fight and raid anyway, so why not get paid to do so? As Norseman killed Norseman, dwarf, and orc alike, chaos reigned in the Sea of Claws. The scope of the war of the Age of Reckoning has now turned to engulf the peoples of Norsca. Will the forces of Norsca sway the tide of battle or will they act as a force for balance? Read more…

The Norse Are Coming! ~ Intro

Torches swayed from side to side as a group of Norse raiders entered a dark tangled forest on a cloudless yet moonless night. The striking of a flint a few meters ahead caused the man at the forefront of the Norse group to halt and signal the others to remain still. Another strike of the flint and a fire came to life, curiously purple in color.

“Why stop now? Your flickering torches give your presence away far more than any noise you make,” a slender figure said standing behind the fire. As the Norse approached the beauty of the figure became apparent, though only half of the face was visible while the other half was covered in darkness.

A stout Norse warrior with a peppered beard grunted, “The crone you sent said you would have words, words we could profit from…” Read more…

License to Pillage Guide

LtP LE PageNorse Templev1.9.1a consists of the License to Pillage live event. An early spring thaw has lead to earlier-than-anticipated raids by the Norse. Typically absent the massive threat from the forces of Destruction, the Empire’s navy would patrol the Sea of Claws and intercept the raiders whenever possible, but now in the Age of Reckoning the forces of Order are hard-pressed from all sides to hold off the enemy. The forces of Order are tasked with repulsing the northern raiders from the shores of Nordland. Join the forces of Order in the fight for the shores of the Empire! Read more…

Norsca ForestAs winter comes to an end and the Sea of Claws becomes free of the ice, which had acted as a barrier between Norsca and the Empire, spring ushers in a tense season. The raiding this year has come particularly early catching the defenders of Nordland offguard. What comes as an oddity is the observation that the raiders take very little in terms of loot, perhaps as to leave their vessels light for faster strikes? What is certain is that the Sea of Claws is soon to run red with blood. Read more…

NorseA gentle breeze carried the salty mist into town as the last rays of the sun clung to the western sky. Soon nightfall would descend upon the town and with it the thick sea fog that some perceived as a blessing, others as a curse. Stirragen was a fishing hamlet on the west coast of Nordland too small to be noted on any maps, and its citizens hoped that this fact alone would preserve Stirragen from the dangers the night brought with it.

“Should have a thick fog tonight,” Theoff, a young lad with peach-fuzz sprouting from his chin, observed.

“A curse to keep us blind against the threat that lurks beyond,” an older man with a face which had battled sun and salt for many seasons replied. Read more…

At The Gates ~ Karak Eight Peaks

January 12, 2014 7 comments

k8p-3At last the time has come for the dwarves to address one of the greatest grudges ever inflicted upon them – the fall of Karak Eight Peaks. Standing before the massive defiled gates, the Oathbearers spearhead the attack with the help of their allies to dislodge the Greenskin from the World’s Edge Mountains. The grand statues of once proud kings are profaned by Greenskin filth, adding to the drive behind the dwarven host. Though the mountains crawl with a living slick green film, the forces of Order are undaunted by the task before them. Now is the time to strike at the forces of Destruction. Read more…

At the Gates ~ Karaz-a-Karak

karaz-a-karak-1

The steady beat of drums echoes off the once peaceful gates of Karaz-a-Karak. The Bloody Sun Boyz have arrived leading a swarm that covers the valley floor in a deathly shade of green. Under the strain of the living tide that bears down upon them, the massive gates of Karaz-a-Karak groan echoing the sentiment of the defenders inside. The Bloody Sun Boyz hope to write a new chapter in the Great Book of Grudges, a chapter starting with the slaughter of Karaz-a-Karak. Read more…
