Episode 08 - Curiouser and Curiouser

Welcome to the eighth episode of Vikings True20 Actual Play. When we left our intrepid band, they had been joined by a Basque pilot named Sancho sent by the Etruscan. Bad timing on his part as Sven Helmcarver had disappared and his crew blamed the warband. To add to the warband's troubles, Audun had fallen into a mysterious trance.

The intro and extro music is from Warrior ( The SoLariS Remix ) by SoLaRiS available at ccMixter. You can find out more about SolaRiS at Jamendo. The music playing during the game is from the albums Himlens Polska by Eric Ask-Upmark and Dram by DrĂ¥m available at

Novgorod was a very important Norse/Rus trading centre on the Viking trade route to Miklagard (Constantinople). You can read a very brief explanation of the route at Wikipedia.

Wikipedia also includes information on the Slavic peoples, including the East Slavs, such as Koliga, the Basque and the Etruscans.
