Twilight of the Gods
Feel free to do your own historical research and bring what you learn into the game. The setting is a mythic, magical and D&D-ized version of 800-1000CE Scandinavia.
- Settlement of Iceland has just begun
- Raiding in England, Scotland and Ireland has also begun
- The king of Denmark and Norway (same guy) is in the process of converting to Christianity
- Christianity is a new religion to Scandinavia, accepted with hesitation in Norway and Denmark, not popular in Sweden or Finland
Historical accuracy isn’t necessary, though, and there will be plenty of departures from history as we go along.
