Vikja heroes and heroines Magnus the skald


Magnus is a musical and handsome skald who has been traveling to various Nordic halls in good accordance regularly. He has blue-grey eyes, half long brownish hair and a small goatee. Magnus has a stature which is slightly above average and has developed a nose for opportunities and timing. He possesses good social skills and loves attending festivities in which he can perform songs and tell stories.

His family is small and consists of a wife and daughter. Yngvildr, his wife, runs a small tavern at the town center. Her daughter Glyrna helps her mother and serves the guests with mead, food and other drinks. Magnus plays at his own tavern regularly and if he is not at home he travels across the Nordic lands to perform at the great halls in various lands. From time to time he is invited by nobles to entertain their guests.


Magnus grew up in a large town next to a broad river. His parents had a tavern close to the docks. The tavern was rarely empty during the day as travelers gathered here to wait for ships to leave or arrive in the harbor. One day he met a nice woman named Yngvildr at the tavern and they fell in love. Soon after the happy couple married they got a place of their own. With the help of both parents they bought a new tavern in another town. The tavern was extended with extra rooms and was finished within a month. At that exact moment their daughter Glyrna was born which was seen as a blessing by the gods. Appropriately they gave the new tavern the name of 'Six Eyes' which refered to the number of inhabitants and their daughter's name Glyrna, which means eye in the Nordic language.

Today Magnus is traveling to the festivities of a neighbouring jarl who is getting married. He has prepared a number of stories and brought a harp along to guide his singing. Yngvildr and his daughter are attending guests in the tavern. It appears that someone has thrown a celebration party right after his trade ship returned safely from a long journey. The parents of Yngvildr are helping them with the preparation of food and drinks. It will be a long happy night for all to remember.

Magnus's primary skills are recovery and gathering clues, his secondary skill is hiding. Magnus owns a tavern and has some quality arms such as an axe, bow and seax. He uses a common shield and helmet for defense. He owns 4 silver and has a monthly income of 3 silver.
