I was reading the Northlands Saga to familiarize myself with the whole Saga in preparation to running it.
In the last chapter we have the Godi and Seer that had predicted: "[...]They determined that to save
the Køenig and his army from utter destruction, and indeed to save the Northlands themselves from the inevitable decline that would follow such a disaster, a new army must be raised, the greatest army ever seen in the Northlands, surpassing even that raised by Njal for his expedition. This Great Northern Army must comprise warriors of all the Northlands, take ship in a mighty fleet with the summer tides to rescue the trapped army
of Njal, and carry the vengeance of the Northlands against the duplicity of the Mulstabhins and their barbaric allies. [...]" and "It says that the omens will favor this Great Army only if it is raised and led by the greatest heroes of the Northlands. The expedition to rescue my father and brother is doomed to fail unless you can find these heroes and sway them to our cause."
The first part of the adventure is the mustering of the Army, which make sense, however I've noticed the four groups are not covered: The Seagestrelanders, the Nûk, the Nieulander and the Jomsviking. Now I can see a argument not to include them:
But I figured, what if an enterprising group of PCs wish to recruit from those groups? Sure I could say "No" but might be hard to justify in the case of Nieulander if some of the PCs are Jarls there. Or, I could say "Sure, sounds like a great idea" and have them give it a shot.
I've already figured out a few things to consider when creating those army groups, but some help/feedback would be appreciated:
Anythnig I'm missing or overlooking?
