Njal's Saga

Njal’s Saga

Set around 960 C.E., this saga does not directly correspond to events in this campaign (yet). However, some elements found in the campaign from the saga:

  • The central place of “honor” and feuds in Northern society – including the practice of weregild for compensation
  • The legal system of Nyrheimur as an uneasy substitute for vengeance
  • The role of good luck, ill luck, and Fate
  • ghosts, prophecies, dreams, halluciantions, fetches, portents, etc.
  • Nyrheimur continues to rely on local Things until 930, when the Althing is established.
  • Widespread recognition of the landvaettir that inhabited the land long before the coming of men
