INTRODUCTION
Barbarians, plunderers, vikings – the whole world freezes in shock when they see our Dragon Boats. Haakon the Good, Harald Fairhair, even Eric the Red... the great heroes are dead... once my heathen folk of the battle axe brought fire all over Europe but now we are a part of the great Christian realm... northern province kinghts. But the new alliances make us strong.

And in my hand the Christian cross shall become a bringer of fear like the hammer of Thor in the ancient days! We will expand like never before and loot enormous treasures from the East, which our ancestors would have never dreamt of! And the poets will sing about my crusade because it is the blood of Odin that flows through my veins!

I am Sigurd the First, King of Norway. And this is my saga.

This has to be, without a shadow of doubt, the best Crusader 2 campaign that I have ever seen.

The amount of effort into tiny details from the history and background of the maps to the tiny attention to detail not only in scripting, but terrain - this set of maps are everything you would ever want and more. It's simply indescribable.

This deserves an immediate promotion to our Contributors group for providing us with outstanding quality content.

Welcome to the site, and well done!! smile
