Prepare for harshness as you head north in Northgard. Your Viking clan has found land and has the goal of taming it. This means developing a settlement there, killing the beasts that live there, exploring it, and take advantage of its resources. You will have to do this while surviving the difficult winters and finding balance in your life. It is going to require thought and energy to do all of this. You have to put in time, you have to consider what will work best, and you will have to learn. If you want like to add some extra entertainment value, you can always play alongside your friends.


The Vikings have founded Northgard, a northern land full of treasure and dangers. They are there to unearth mysteries and treasures, coming away with more than they could dream. Doing this is not going to be simple and easy, however. You will have to work hard if you are to get the treasures and wonders that you seek. You will have to put in time and effort, and you will have to build and fight. By putting your all into every battle, though, you can come out on top. You can rule this land and survive the winters that you will face moving forward.

You will have to build an entire settlement on this new land of yours. The settlement will give your Vikings a place to call home, where they can work and live freely. You will want to give them shelter and places to perform basic tasks, giving them the best lives they can have. As you expand and grow, this will become easier to do. You will be able to manage your growing clan, helping them to survive and stay strong.


Vikings are not all fighters and warriors. In your settlement, you will have to assign each of them a job, such as farmer or loremaster. Yes, you can assign warrior, but it is just one of the jobs available. Each job plays an important role in ensuring the survival and growth of your settlement. Make sure that you have people for growing crops, maintaining culture, protecting your people, and everything else you need. All of the jobs available are equally important.

Warriors are a lot more important than you realize. You are not fighting other clans for supremacy; you are fighting dire wolves and other creatures. You are dealing with creatures that could easily tear you to pieces. Make sure that you have warriors prepared to protect you when the time comes.
