Strategy[]

The first thing to do in this land is to build the wall between the two existing ones near the sea because of the platoon that will move in as an attempt to kill you before the war started. It is also advisable to have your creature kill them before they even move.

Next, build the storehouse and the altar. A good placement for the altar is right next to the creature pen, so you have control over the land just out side the wall. However, if you did not kill the platoon that will patrol that area, the town bell will go off and the consciences will notify you that the city is burning.

If you haven't bought the ranged armory, it is a good idea to do so now, and to recruit two platoons of archers sized 10 - 20 men, and place them on the walls beside the pre-built gate. When the Norse leader orders three platoons to guard your gate to prevent migrations from entering, these archers will gun them down and make them flee. But be prepared to close the gate. If the platoon outside the "creature pen wall" are not dead, it's a good idea to have one of those platoons shoot them down before being stationed at the other wall.

Next, purchase the lumbermill from the tribute menu. There is not a whole lot of wood in the starting area, so using the tribute for this now will save the trouble later when saving up for a wonder in the next land.

If you haven't already, build the armory and create a swordsmen platoon sized 30 - 50 men and put them outside the city gate. They will have to constantly fight the three platoons that are regularly replaced, so keep merging new platoons with the old one to keep the experience, and take care of them more quickly.

To win this land, it is easier to do it by impressiveness because of the low impressiveness total required to capture the capital. However, it is advisable to have your creature or an army keeping tabs on the flow of troops from the city.

Easter Egg Challenge[]

The Norseman Easter egg

There is a Norseman living in a cave along the straight away by the ocean. Pick him up, and throw him as far as you can. If he lands on the ground, you earn tribute IF you broke the previous record and according to how far you threw him. He is seemingly immortal, as he does not age, he cannot die from being drowned, thrown, or burnt. You also do not rack up evil points by doing this challenge, though you may acquire a few. He also provides the player with a small amount of Influence, allowing them to pick up anything the man is close to. However, they will still be unable to interact with him or anything if he lands inside the enemy's Influence.
