On the Isle of Sceapige (5) - an uneasy calm

An uneasy calm has settled over the island. The vikings seem to be content to stay on their half of the island. The saxons have sent for help from the mainland, meanwhile they keep a look out from the ridge which divides the island.
A saxon woodsman who scouted out around the viking encampment reported back they were repairing their boats. Are Sven Erikson and his men about to leave or do they have other plans ?


  1. A northman slave in my household informs me that scraping and re-caulking the boats is a routine job, so you might not be able to read much into this report. Then again, why march across the island where enemy scouts can see them coming, when the vikings can come by sea?

    Perhaps you need to consult the soothsayer and have the runesticks cast...
