Land, Wealth and Fame. This is what inspired Vikings to travel far from home. Fighting dangerous seas, foes and each other. They would go anywhere, anytime and in any weather. You are one of the Viking leaders seeking fortune in the unknown with your long boat and crew. Do you have what it takes to be a great Sea King by making new discoveries, settling hostile lands, crafty trading, and raiding with the fierceness of a Norseman? If so, seek the throne and make it yours.
The Viking leaders of these expeditions were called Sea Kings because of their skills in traveling uncharted waters to destinations few knew. And they wanted to be King, back in their home lands. To fulfill their ambitions, they raided, traded, and settled far away lands to attract followers in their quest to become King.
