I have French and Scandinavian ancestry, which means I'm descended from both beastly Vikings and cowardly, romantic pussies.
I charge with my battleaxe and my fearsome battle cry, but then I just run away and cry.

French has one of the better military records in Europe. They also defeated the vikings. They also have been always a power house up until 1930s. The surrender comes from just WW2.

"ahem" The Normans successfully hijacked the English monarchy and Basically stole Normandy from the French. Then instead of driving them out because no one wants to fight Vikings (especially Rollo) The king of France just gave them the land, barely seems like a defeat to me

That's with French being outnumbered by at least ten times. Vikings were inefficient barbaric fighters and nothing more. They are overrated because of modern media.

They were bunch of pirates basically, not much different than barbary corsairs.

These simple "pirates" became known as the greatest seamen in the world, you seem to think that it was just a village of big hairy men going around killing and raping things, however the true beauty of northmen were their ships, these amazing bastards made the greatest vessels at this period in time, they commanded the greatest navy's with hundreds of ships, and thousands of men all ready to deploy upon a beach in a matter of minutes.

They didn't command any greatest navy. I'll admit they were pretty good at seafairing but they were just raiding bunch of people. Also barbary corsairs were very good in that department too.

Each individual Norse ruler had the fealty of man local Norse leaders (chieftains, Earls, Hersirs, ect) they could then call upon them to create vast fleets of long-ships as well as many supplementary vessels, for example the siege of Paris was done with 400-700 ships and tens of thousands of men.

Yes. They were like feudal kings of Holy Roman Empire but, for example, compared to those, they were inefficient. They were hordes of raiders.

>implying the roman empire was efficient
Rome's ideology was based on expansion and conquest, and just like every other consequential empire it over expanded and collapsed, in fact it wasn't it "barbaric" forces that removed roman influence from northern Europe?

I am talking about Holy Roman Empire. The Germanic one.

Well you run into a village kill all the men and then instead of raping the women you make them fall in love with your feminine side and drown in the pussy.

Chances are if your are french/Scandinavian your really just all Scandinavian. The vikings established many colony in France one you may have heard of was, and is still called Normandy. These Normans (old french for "northmen") thrusted themselves into both the French and English Monarchies. So if your ancestry can be linked to france, it's likely your french ancestors ancestry can be linked to Scandinavia.

Now you only need some DPS's and a healer. I would be a fine healer, just give me an ancient Finnish drum, and i'll be shaman.

I'm mostly Irish with a bit French so my skin is as pale as printer paper
Living in the southern region of North America makes my resistance to weather ****** up
Being used to the heat I hate the cold
But having descendants from Ireland makes me hate the heat

I can never be satisfied
At least I have Celtic heritage

I was born on Saint Patrick's Day, but I'm not even Irish and I don't like to drink alcohol at all.

Really? Not even whisky? I'm also Irish related, so whisky is yes.

I'm pure-blood Icelandic so should i only drink BrennivĂ­n? I think not, especially when cider is so dangerously easy to drink
#107 to #17 - newdevyx (11/24/2013) [-]
I'm Fenno-Ugric, so does that mean i should drink only vodka? nah, it's fine if you mix it with something, but alone it's okay. This one's from Kalevala.
#119 to #107 - daemascus (11/24/2013) [-]
Vodka has t be one of the vilest things i have every drank, even grain alcohol goes down better
