Viking Warriors (A Sourcebook for 5th Edition)


Welcome to the Mythic North! Our version of this fantastic region corresponds largely to what are now known as Norway, Iceland, Sweden, and Denmark and incorporates the myths, legends, folklore, and history associated with it and this book is designed to help facilitate adventures in it.

“Viking Warriors” includes: 

* 10 sets of D&D 5th Edition game stats, including those for a chieftain, or jarl; five of his lieutenants, or thegns, including a rune-mage, a war-priestess, a bard, a woodsman, and a scout; and four different sorts of common warriors, or carls. Six of these sets are comprehensive enough that they can be used either as non-player characters or as ready-to-use pre-generated player characters.

* Backstories for the various characters and for their place in a Viking holding called the Hringsgard, allowing them to either be used together as part of a cohesive faction or individually for any number of scenarios or encounters.

* A detailed 5th Edition background, the Nord, that can be applied to any Viking-type characters and which includes rules for shield walls, a dagger-like weapon called the seax, and an overview of regional equipment. 

* Eight new magic items designed for the Mythic North milieu and assigned to the various named characters that appear in this book. 

Be sure to also check out the "Viking Warrriors Cardstock Characters" miniatures that were designed to accompany this volume. 

Three of the characters from this sourcebook can be seen in action in the video that appears below!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
