Starting another character, this time in Viking Conquest. Actually my first time playing it unmodded, previously I always used Balance Patch mod.
My character is a young Norse woman names Dagný with a dream to become a famous warrior. The mostly same rules as >>31445
playthrough, with some changes to accommodate VC, such as being allowed to use healer even if you sustain injury in loosing battle, because unlike Aut Caesar aut nihil, there are no ways to rise your attributes in VC. Another problem is a donkey/mule to carry stuff, they dont exist in VC, the cheapest alternative is a pony for 6k. So I am gonna just accept it, although I am going to treat lame/swaybacked version as normal for roleplay purposes, because this is way too expensive. But I can carry unlimited amount of items sailing from port to port, I just cant walk with it.
So anyway, I started by deleting my starting money and honey, so my initially I had nothing but a clothes, bow, dagger, and a single coin to my name. I started in Norway, made some money by working in homestead, lumber camp, and hunting boars. Hunting is fun in VC, you have to organically track the herd on overworld. After putting together small capital, transitioned to trading goods,mainly iron and soapstone, between villages and Norways only city.
Just moving around is quite dangerous, the country is absolutely infested with bandits. Although good thing is they are contend to collect "toll" when they catch you instead immediately clubbing you to death. >>31828
I dont think it is. Germanic tribes actually managed to briefly unite and sack couple of their border fortresses, but then Romans peaced out with them one by one until only a single tribe remained in war, which they conquered.
