My father mentioned you. He told me about the time when you discovered Greenland together. You have some shields as a memento, right? Can you show them to me?
I've been living in Greenland half my life after father brought us here. We have our freedom but the weather is harsh. Gather some wood for fire and I will tell you more.
One of our sailors, Bjarni returned home after a year of roaming the seas. He says there is land west from here with trees and pastures. I have to see this for myself.
My father Erik wanted to find a fertile land for us but he failed. I will now fulfill his dream. Go ask some villagers if they would embark with me on this journey.
Good relationships with your crew are essential on a long voyage. No viking has ever said no to some roasted fish and ale. Bonding over a dinner is always easier.
My father's ship is still in good shape. Just a bit of obligatory maintenance and she is good to go. Floki's craft is truly magnificent.
Mother bid me to help her rebuild the stable behind the house. However I have no time for that now. Could you lend her a hand instead? I would be very grateful.
We are ready to go. Just buy yourself a warm coat before we set off. The northern wind can freeze you to the bone.
|9||Did you see that?|
There was a whale, it appeared over the water for a moment. A magnificent creature. We have no time to catch it, but some fishing equipment might still come in handy.
I think I can see land in the distance already. Let's get closer and inspect the beach. We can also try out the fishing gear. There are many fish in the water.
There are signs of campfires on the shore. The land is obviously inhabited. Ready your weapons and shields in case the natives are not friendly.
One of our men got lost. Maybe the natives have captured him. We have to send out a searching party. I hope they find him alive and well.
|13||He is back|
Fool! Scaring me like that. Nothing happened to him he just wandered in the woods and found some grapes. This is indeed a fruitful land. Let's build here some shelters.
This is a wonderful place to live and farm. The soil is fertile, the weather pleasant and I have not seen so many trees in my life. Let's call it Vinland after the grapes.
There are some people that attacked us in the middle of the night. They killed some of my men. We need to be alert! Bring our weapons and make sure they are sharp.
I don't want to live in fear of an attack at any time. We could try to offer natives some gold, but we need some shields to protect us.
They did not accept the gold. They were looking like they don't even know what it is. I must think about this problematic situation. I have always better ideas while eating.
Send the men to gather some grapes. It's too cold for them to grow in Greenland so it will be a wonderful gift for my family at home.
|19||It's not safe here|
We should return home. Let's pack our ship full of timber and grapes and go. I will tell my father about Vinland and we might return sometime later.
|20||We are back|
Greenland is already visible on the horizon. It's cold with lots of ice and snow but it is good to be home. I am grateful for your help and farewell, sailor.
