The Danish Vikings

Roster after raiding Ireland, Campaign Season 1

Campaign Season 1

The Danish Vikings decide to raid Connacht and thus attack the lands of Cnut's blood rival. Denmark, in turn, is raided by the Norse Gaels.

Claiming the Irish Cattle

The decision to raid the lands of his blood rival was a simple one, and so Cnut gathered a force about him to cross the seas early in the season when their enemy would least expect to be attacked. The voyage, though, was not an easy one; the seas were rougher than any he had crossed before, and despite his Viking blood Cnut was glad to make landfall at last on the rocky shores of Connacht. The land was fertile and rich in cattle, and so it was no surprise when while raiding one day his men were met by a force of Irish warriors led by the Irish King. The Vikings were decisive, swiftly rounding the cattle up and making off with them before the enemy could prevent them. Cnut's only regret was that he did not meet his rival face to face to settle their feud. But there are sure to be other times...

The raiding Danish Vikings win Cattle Raid against the Irish. They gain +1 CVP and +2 Wealth. The Danish Vikings may now choose to Invade Connacht as a future Campaign Season Action.

Too late, the Danes were unable to prevent the raiders getting away with their plunder.
