Saxon haters!

Yaaaarh! The Saxon pirates are ready to board the shore. OR if they’ve already boarded it in the setting we’re playing, then they’ll board some maidens instead – at a farmhouse near you! In fact maybe you’ve just been stabbed to death on a spear or you’re hiding under you bed while they’re pillaging and raping… Be ware!

  1. Always with the \”oh they raping\”. Did anyone ever think that maybe these are honest businessmen, armed to defend their trade, and that local maidens are simply charmed by their manners and generosity? Norsemen _were_ well-known for bathing frequently and attending to their appearance, not exactly common for the time.

  2. Why do you say thaty bathing was infrequent elsewhere Allison and that other medieval cultures had no interest in their appearance. It seems a little stereotypical, but I'd be interested in any sources you are drawing on for this 🙂
