Storyline

TSEE-EEEE-ARRR!
 
You look up. There he is. You stick out your arm and wait for Beetle, your eagle, to land, then you detach a small scroll from his leg. It reads:
 
Two long-ships, perhaps 80 Viking warriors, approach from the south on the Hudson River. Send word to Tryonsbury.
 
What do they intend? They will pass right in front of the keep. There must be 1000 guards there. We would crush them. Still, you must bring the news to your lord. But wait— who sent this? You don’t recognize the seal.
