By |December 15th, 2015|

The finale of this short story series about Folka from Nika Harper. And be sure to follow her on Twitter!

 

Folka heard the yox’s long moan outside and sighed. It had a tendency to free itself from the barn and yowl, trapped in the cold. Yox are not intelligent, and this one was nearly as old a family member as herself. Her boots were conveniently by the door and she trudged into the dim night.

Though, it was not as it seemed. Immediately Folka was aware that she was weaponless as she watched her yox get dragged through the crunchy snow. There must have [...]

Folka Part 3

Part 3 of this exciting short story from Nika Harper is now live! And be sure to follow her on Twitter!

 

The bear within Bolverk had awoken and he lumbered through the cold forest, hands and feet digging into the icy soil. The rites spoke of primal living, of natural existence, and shouldering the cruelty of desperation. Living at all costs was what mattered. Bears were built to withstand the harshest and worst winters, to flourish in the verdant summers. They could sleep through the cold months if the land had been kindly, but Bolverk shared the winter nights and days [...]

Bolverk knew this sensation. It seared and held on tight, digging as deeply as it could, and he roared in unexpected pain.

The little arrow wasn’t so buried in his shoulder after all; Bolverk sat upright and nearly dislodged it from its place. He shrugged the thin frost off his bare arms, covering them in his bearskin cloak and growled, expecting a fight.

Finding a girl.

Her feet were solid in the deep snow, and her face showed no signs of [...]

He hadn’t even left a letter. There was merely an absence where he was, a hollow where he and their marriage vows might have been. She had heard it from other people, and eventually from her father. If the story was true, it was improbable.

“He had broken his nose, you see, and they say he was weak and prone when the menace found him…”

Folka did not see [...]

Meet the Twins! Hogun and Mogun

By |January 2nd, 2014|

Hogun and Mogun are two identical twins. Their weapon of choice happens to be the axe. That happens to be the extent of their likeness as from that point onward they have different ideas on most things including battle. Despite both having differing opinions on almost everything they are still brothers and will always have each others back in battle.

Despite their smaller weapons, these two brothers are both adept at dealing a lot of damage to their enemies using their axes and their battlefield cunning as Thrashers.

Archers

By |December 21st, 2013|

Archers can deal a ton of damage at range as well as provide some interesting choices on the battlefield. With their great range, you can pick apart weaker enemies or you can choose to try and break down the bigger targets.

Archer abilities include setting traps for enemies. These traps can consist of setting a small area on fire or even placing a hidden trap that will stop an enemy in its tracks. Use your archers wisely as they need to make use of their range and keep enemies at a distance so that they can stay safe.

You can choose [...]

Meet Tryggvi

By |December 19th, 2013|

Tryggvi is a well-known character in his town where he is mostly avoided due to his raucous nature. But, there’s no denying his weight in combat as a skilled spearman, and you’re a wise man to engage his services to fight on your side.

Well known in his home town, for being the guy you hope doesn’t sit next to you in the mead house, or is yelling loudly in the middle of the night or building a collection of spears far more numerous than most men would need in a lifetime. He spends a fair amount of time by [...]

The Dredge

By |December 11th, 2013|

The dredge are an ancient race of enemies who have clashed with men and varl since earliest memory. They were pushed into the icy wastes of the north centuries ago through the weaving ways of the Valka and have been kept largely at bay by the varl, but they’re starting to reappear again in number…

Dredge in-game represent the largest combat challenge as you will often be pitted against these colossal stone-like beings with strength that far outmatch even the most heroic vikings under your banner. Deploy the characters strategically and lead your caravan wisely as it’s often times brains [...]

Meet Sigbjorn

By |December 10th, 2013|

We just unveiled another character from the game — Sigbjorn, a drunken varl warrior who players will stumble (depends on their drink of choice) across.

As always the case you should never underestimate a varl warrior and the same is true for Sigbjorn as long as he’s sober.
