Release History fileEdit

"Viking sailors routinely crossed the North Atlantic from Scandinavia and Britain to Iceland, with only simple navigational tools and no compass, despite the constant presence of heavy storms. The distance of 700 nautical miles could be crossed in as little as four days and nights given a steady wind.

"It is the great north wind that made the Vikings." -- Scandinavian proverb."

Pre-release History fileEdit

"“For the ninth I know,
if I stand in need
my bark on the water to save,
I can the wind
on the waves allay,
and the sea lull.”

-- The Poetic Eddas, Odin’s Rune-Song
