Created by Titus Tscharntke, with help from his son, Philipp, and Raphael Schröder (Weedkiller), the Norsemen faction is based on the medieval-period vikings, and compliment the Indian faction well, with similar cost units ranging from a cheap and simple spearman to strong battleaxe wielders to the mighty flying valkyrie. Part of the MegaPack techtree, the Norsemen were Tscharntke's second faction, after the Indians.
