793, the peaceful monastery of Lindisfarne is attacked and pillaged by men who rise out of the mists, cleaving the waves in powerful ships.

Soon, the Norsemen will no longer be satisfied with looting, theft and pillaging. the armies of the powerful Scandinavian kingdoms will come together in fleets to descend upon Europe, conquering countries, ransoming kings and emperors and founding colonies.
