I ordered this more to use as a handy research guide on the Vikings (in addition to other research materials) rather than with any specific gaming in mind. I found the book to be well-researched and surprisingly well detailed; the historical section is excellent, and most of the gaming ideas spring directly from the real culture. I particularly liked the separation of suggestions for uses in campaigns that were more historically bent or fantastically bent. While most of the non-gaming materials is available elsewhere (much of it free), this book saves you hours of time tracking it down, and the gaming material is both inventive and representative of the Viking culture of the period. This book gathers a lot of information between its covers, and I would recommend it for anyone doing a Northmen/Viking based campaign as well as anyone interested in the period who's interested in an informative primer. Well done!
