It was time for the feast in Skaljarik. Today marked the day before all raiding parties were sent out. And to celebrate, we had a Smorgasbord. "Do you always do this?" Lydia wanted to know. She had glanced around at all the food and ale being devoured. "Every year," I replied. "Right before Raiding season. Where are we raiding this year, Rollo?" Rollo Wulfson was my longtime friend, and raiding partner. We were always assigned the same ship. "Dad said something about Kaliphlin," he replied, filling his jug with ale. In general, boys under 18 weren't allowed ale, but it was Smorgasbord day, and Rollo's father was Jarl of our town. But it was the other news that had my attention. Kaliphlin? Well, hopefully we got a good city. I looked at Rollo. "Save me a seat, will you?" "With pleasure," he replied. I walked over to Wulf Stormbreaker. Jarl Wulf, I reminded myself. "Jarl Wulf, where are we going this year?" Wulf looked at me. He had a mischievous look, and he answered, "You're raiding the high council. Any city you like. And you're going to be in Command of the War Party. Just do me a favor and don't get yourself killed. I pondered this. Kaliphlin was farther than we usually went. But they probably had lots of Gold that could be....shall we say......redistributed. "Then I guess I'll need to go to the supply house." Wulf nodded. THIS was going to be some raiding season......... Builder's notes: Sorry I haven't had time to build, and this was a throwtogether. But I've been very busy. But this sets up my story nicely for the Civil War....anyway. Author's notes: As said above, this build is really only setting up my next few builds. But tell me what you think!
