Vikja heroes and heroines Rögnvaldr the ambitious


Rögnvaldr is an industrious farmer who owns a mixed farm. He is of average height and has a strong pair of arms. His hair is dark brown and his eyes are greenish-brown. He is an ambitious man and tries to do his daily jobs as efficient as possible. He is able to defend himself against bandits and other scum that roam the lands.

His family is pretty large with 15 members in total. Rögnvaldr has 7 daughters and 5 sons, many of them work at the farm. A few of his children have already left their home to live in nearby settlements. Saldís, his wife, organizes the storage hall and sells much of the food and wares to passing merchants and customers. One of the daughters, called Ronnog, has set up a shop in the nearest town to sell wares. She gets the majority of her goods from her father's farm. Rögnvaldr's parents live on the farm as well. They help out with daily chores and raise the little children when everyone else is working.


Rögnvaldr grew up in the nearby village. His father was a huskarl who was enlisted by the local jarl. During battles he showed a lot of courage which earned him the nickname of 'the Hammer'. He was awarded for his bravery with a plot of land and he started his own farm after retirement. He is a renowned huskarl and still carries a lot of knowledge with him. He teaches a number of family members about the Viking way of fighting. Rögnvaldr was his eldest son who inherited the farm and expanded it into a larger complex.

There is a war brewing in these parts which can erupt any time soon. As unrest spreads more bandit groups have organized themselves. Particularly in the last few months many bandits are roaming the countryside looking for opportunities to steal valuables. Because of this threat Rögnvaldr has decided to build a palisade and ditch around the main buildings to increase safety. A small thrall workforce has been put to work to complete this with the utmost speed.

Rögnvaldr has good primary skills in farming and keeping livestock. His secondary skills are maneuvering and forecasting weather. Rögnvaldr's assets are a farm, three fields for crops and a pasture (pick a pasture and crops field card and a third one of your choice). He has 35 silver and a monthly income of 8 silver.
