The eyes... they're back... Why does our little cinnabun Thorfinn always get stuck in these catch 22 situations?

Spoiler

Need more of this kind of character. And it shall be called the common sense trope.

Whichever Thorfinn choose he'll still suffer either way..

Soon constantinople.. soon..

Nah she would've stayed if it wasn't for that arranged marriage

You know perfectly well that's bullshit, she always wanted to leave and become an explorer, the marriage was just an excuse to push her into action, and now she is here talking shit.

Demut, what is the difference between "a cute" and "cutie"?

A cute is someone so cute that you can’t even speak properly and call them a “cutie”. Basically, their cuteness left you so weak and smitten that you are only able to utter the first syllable of “cutie” (in other words, /ˈkjuːt/) ^v^

...For this reason many countries required their peasantry to do a certain amount of informal combat training each month. In england, for example, I believe peasants were expected to be able to shoot a bow proficiently and every household required to own at least one sword.


Peasants were not required to have combat training, nor to have bow proficiency. Yeomen and some classes of villans (semi-peasants living in castle towns) were. It's a general historical misconception because we tend to group all these people as "peasants", but medieval social classes were more granular than that. Generally you don't want your peasants to be able to fight back when you decide to go out there and collect taxes. Also, the minimum requirement for arms for the peasant class was a spear. Sword ownership was limited to yeomen, burghers, and villans, and only yeomen and burghers were allowed to wear them in towns. In the latter medieval period secondhand swords actually became cheaper than spears, so a lot of peasants ended up buying those to satisfy the requirement.

Odysseus was a Prince.His brief stint in farming was a ruse to avoid going to war which,incidentally, failed.


And Ragnar Lothbrok was already a Jarl when he left for his expedition, so his "farming" would have looked more like Ketil's. He took slaves during his expeditions but sold none of them, so he must have had some amount of land. Basically, he's what Thorgil would have looked like had he inherited the farm.

Said Gudrid, the one who sail away from such life.

or except when you're Ragnar Lothbrok

or Odyseus

or whatever, many great warriors were farming their lands in times of peace

Most medieval warriors were farmers most of the time. The only real professional soldiers were mercenaries. The vast bulk of armies were composed of conscripts only temporarily levied during wartime. For this reason many countries required their peasantry to do a certain amount of informal combat training each month. In england, for example, I believe peasants were expected to be able to shoot a bow proficiently and every household required to own at least one sword.

The path of the warrior and the path of the farmer are usually not very compatible. ^.-

its called "overflow", when something gets so large it flips over into the negatives.


Who would have though that real world work the same as digital one. lol
 

Oh, he's done it now. NOBODY talks shit about the joys serfdom and tilling the land and gets away with it!

Gudrid stabs him in the back, guaranteed. :V

Welll... that was unexpected.
When your plan is too good it goes beyond the scale and all the way back to the stupid end, i guess?

C-cute ...

 

Gudrid is a cute (*≧∀≦*)

 

Yes, a cute, not a cutie.

"Guess I miscalculated a bit. But hey, It's a very good learning experience." omg finally a new favorite after Askeladd

Welll... that was unexpected.

hahahaha....

 

i did feel a TINY bit of pity for Loki... nothing like having your assassin backfire spectacularly and agroing the boss...

 

now he still has Thorfinn as a problem, but Garm adds Thorkell to the list as well... his facepalm was quite deserved.

This series is one of the few joys in life.
