  3. My hints for Vikings are:

  5. ‘Top three Handy Hints for Vikings’
    I believe for hint to be handy, it should be short (and thus easily remembered):
     – Always bring a hip flask with you. A full one is preferred.
     – Kilts and/or band t-shirts can provide a decent disguise in a last minute ‘need to fit in’. Guitar cases also help in this case. 
     – Writing notes in runes is only so secret. Many neopagans can read them these days, so just… be cautious.

  13. 1. Build temples out of stone. That way it will be much harder for the Christians to eradicate your beliefs when they arrive, because your monuments will be harder to destroy.
    2. Write more things down. Otherwise, in 1000 years, the only extensive accounts of your deeds will be from your enemies, and they probably won’t be that inclined to say nice things about you.
    3. Be advised: two generations of heavy metal bands will completely appropriate aspects of your culture for imagery and lyrical themes, so accept the apologies in advance.

  14. 1. Take plenty of moisturiser. Leather may chaff.
    2. Samurai blades are pretty sharp and tough. Get your swords imported from Japan.
    3. Avoid using flame retardant wood varnish for your ships. Else you may be embarassed when trying to set fire to one for a funeral.
