The Cattle Raid

Tavish and his men took a stand against Leif the Lucky and his raiding Norse Gaels as they came seeking his prized highland cattle in Scots Northumbria. The Norse Gaels were forced to fight a bloody battle, and many warriors fell. But the cots prevailed and Leif was hacked down on the bloody field. A victory for McTavish with the added satisfaction of seeing his blood feud enemy cut down by his mighty kin. The Scottish skald tells the tale of this great victory in epic form, as only Scottish skalds can.

The Scots gain +1 CVP and +1 point of Reputation for successfully defending against the raid. They gain +1 additional point of Reputation for having slain their blood feud enemy Leif. After the battle they recruit to replace their lost Hearthguard, leaving two of their units of warriors slightly depleted.

The Scots Invade Bulandsness

Tavish led his warband across the cold north sea to the lands of the old enemy of the Scots, landing in Iceland in the shores of Bulandsness. He was met there by the Vikings of Bjorn Ironsides. As soon as his boats had made land, battle began, the Vikings fighting a determined resistance against the invader in a battle in which both warlords fell. The Scots prevailed, Tavish leaving the battle with a heroic wound, Bjorn limping away with a serious one. And thus, the Scots lay claim to the province of Bulandsness.

The Scots win Wolves from the Sea, fought with 4-point warbands, and gain +1 CVP and one point of Land. They take control of the province of Bulandsness. Tavish received a heroic wound which increased his Reputation by one point. The Scots lost 2 Hearthguard but immediately recruited them back and, spending 1 point of Wealth on further recruitment gained 8 Levy with bow.

Roster at the end of Season 4

At the end of the Seasons the Scots roll Warlord Experience on the Fate table. Tavish rolls for a new trait and gets Far Traveller.
