“I told you already.” – the big burly man mumbled through his long dark beard – “We’re going to see Urlvar the Unbroken and join him in his next raid. Trust me, when we get back, we’ll all have more than a story to tell.” “You mean *if* we come back.” – the other man smirked. “Exactly”- the leader answered – “Sovngarde awaits.”

Nords are tall, strong people living in cold places. They are Viking-like in nature, and they love fighting, raiding, and making a name for themselves. Earning a place in Sovngarde, their afterlife, is what awaits any Nord who dies gloriously in battle.

Two things Nords like the most are mead and music, and they are rather religious and superstitions, giving importance to omens where they see them. Living mostly in huts and wooden houses, they build them in a way they can withstand cold with ease.

Nords make for excellent warriors, mercenaries, guards, and soldiers. They can be disciplined when needed, though their fury often gets on display in any fight. Some good Nord names are Raloldr Mjorenson, Evete Farseer, and Rigmrir the Fearsome.
