    but that said, i still like the idea, so i wont be disappointed in any case
    Well it kinda is a western-centric mod to be honest, the Vikings mostly raided the British isles and northern Europe, so i think it is a good thing that we have most of the factions in the west.

    In my opinion the only reason we have the rest of the map is 1. to make it different from all other mods (the first REAL dark age Europe mod) and 2. So my glorious Danish raiders can sail to Constantinople and sack the city of the worlds desire haha

    I don't think it was Danish vikings who besieged Constantinople. The Varyags that settled in Rus land and attacked Constantinople were of Swedish origin.

    Hey mate - work is going sort of slow. I have a preview just about ready to post and was waiting on our 2D artist but unfortunately he has not been active lately so once I am back home I will post the New preview.

    I was browsing the hosted mods forum and found this. It seems interesting, though I don't know if it's still being worked on.

    There's just one thing; as a speaker of Old Norse I have to take exception to the title. 'Vešr' means 'Weather' or 'Wind', or even 'Wether' (as in a castrated sheep), but we'll assume that's not what you meant. I checked all three Old Norse dictionaries I have and none listed 'Vešr' as meaning 'Storm' in either West or East dialects, or even in Gutnish. The correct translation of 'Storm' is 'Stormr'. 'Hriš' is exceptable, but usually only used in compound words.

    Anyway, good luck with the mod. I've always had an interest in vķkingarnir ok heišnir menn.

    Hello mate! The mod is, in fact, still being worked on. I am working on finishing a preview so hopefully soon there will be one.

    Hmm, strange... The University of York Old Norse dictionary (clicky) says that Hriš or Vešr both translate to storm... Although "heathen wind" kind of sounds cool

    Hmm. I've heard English speakers use Weather to mean Storm, so it's not inconceivable that speakers of Old Norse may have done the same, but I can't say I've ever read it. Very curious that that dictionary doesn't contain the word 'Stormr' considering it's so closely related to the English word (both being derived from the Proto-German 'Sturmaz') and is the most common word for 'Storm' in the Sagas.
