Subrikél's Norse Vikings

Author File Description
File Details
Game Version: Rome: Total War 1.5
Hail, fellow warlords! Welcome to our wizardry to allow thee to call forth Norse Vikings to thy warhosts.

These hardy warriors are especially useful for those wishing to command the warhosts of the Dark Forests. They wear coats of metal as do the swordsmen of other dwellers in wooden houses, and wield the axe of the Northern Forests. This axe may also be hurled against a foe, giving these warriors the ability to kill from afar and follow up with honorable melee.

Their impressive appearance is guaranteed to make dwellers in stone houses soil their undergarments, as they are giants from afar who come to slay and die in battle, for only the best are chosen by Odin’s handmaidens for life eternal in Valhalla.

They are not numerous, for the frozen north is not suited to a large population, and to call them to thy ranks requires great wealth and large ports to which they flock. But in battle they are more than worth the sacks of yellow metal they ask.

We are very proud to present this scroll- the Norse Vikings!

Tis common for us to use the Royal ‘We’ when writing, but in this scroll the ‘we’ refers in fact to two warlords, for two of us have pooled our thoughts and efforts into bringing thee these wonderful warriors. These Vikings began as a brainchild of the warlord Terikel Grayhair who had a desire for armored swordsmen for the People of the Dark Forest, but they were brought to life in our Virtual World by the hard work and dedication of the The Queen of the Ocean of Grass, the talented Lady SubRosa. Thus this scroll and the contents within are the result of a wonderful collaboration.

Within this scroll are all that thou does require to bring these heathen warriors to thy Virtual world. Merely open the scroll enumerated “Read Me” and follow the directions of the runes.

Luck and Fair Winds,

Terikel Grayhair of the Dark Forests
SubRosa of the Windswept Plains

Functionality: 5
The unit is complete and functions as described, the unit is fully integrated into RTW with its own unit cards, descriptions, and projectiles. The missile attack works perfectly along with the melee, nothing negative to say here :).

Instructions: 5
Instructions are complete and allow for a reasonably easy installation, the instructions also foresees an deinstallation, warning the user to backup specific files. Although the instructions are written in a sort of "old" english, it is still fairly easy to understand what do to specifically and quickly.

Originality: 5
First viking mod i've reviewed and i must say i am impressed, everything is perfect.

Graphics: 5
The graphics are very good and seem as if Creative Assembly had designed it themselves, the unit cards are a very nice touch to make this seem even more professional. The faction colors also fit in and it is nice that Terikel thought of adding a merc unit.

Additional Comments:
Overall a very satisfactory and professional mod adding a viking to Germany's roster.

Somebody asked for a screen? Here it is.
Rating: 5

All 5 stars, it works, it's easy to install with explicit helpful instructions, it looks great, and it's not going to unbalance anything.

Great flavour unit for the Germans. (Also good Merc unit for anyone conquering the Germans.)
