This goes to my favs!
One suggestion: add white outline to the text to make some contrast for easier reading :3

I've always had a sneaking fascination with the Vikings since I was a kid and read about them in school. That only intensified after reading some of the Edda and watching 13th Warrior.

I liked their blunt, tell me to my face, approach to some things. It's also interesting to see just how much of the world they got to see. Certainly the ukraine would have been a very different place today had the mongols not destroyed the Rus society that grew there.
Also interesting to see the whole Norse mythology, I generally find the way cultures portray their gods and create their mythos fascinating.
Certainly there was an honour to them, though like chivalry and bushido, it was by no means the almost easy going and tolerant honour that the movies make it out to be. Then again, life was harder back then, no Geneva Convention XDD

Vikings are kind of iffy to me. Kind of on the fence when it comes to feelings about them.

They did fucked up shit dude, but I do like that they have some form of honor code.

According to what I see in your gallery, the vikings you think you are one of have never existed.

Gotta agree with ya there, they had an honor system that I find quite appealing

Thanks. Not only was it appealing, it was more upfront than the antics of the modern day world, which is way more sneaky and dishonourable

I agree, I'd prefer blunt painful honesty over a nasty surprise any day. Besides I like the warrior spirit that the Vikings embodied, not as clean cut or stodgy as the samurai or other warrior cultures... plus I enjoy the sense of humor the old Norse had

Aye, my mantality is that of a Scottsman, a Viking and a Templar all mixed into one... try figuring that one out

Yeah, and the actual historical William Wallace was an even greater badass than he was in the movie... the guy burnt down an entire English fort by himself just to prove a point.

That really does take a lot of balls to do. Too bad he wasn't able to shoot lightning bolts out of his ass like one of his fellow Scotsman jested about

At least there is a revival of the Norse way through Asatru but its still not the same thing
