Famous war victories:
1. Grousshall Victory. (Earl Waldemar Bluebeard and his city was attacked by forces of Arngrim kenig (chief) Semion Pavol II Boneseater. Waldemar asked help of Rogvold and earl came to help the servant of the king. Rogvold forces saved the city of Grousshall, saved the life of earl Bluebeard and defeated 5 thousand Arngrim axemen. Rogvold killed in this battle over one thousand enemies by his axe. King Haraldsson presented Elven armour to earl Rogvold for this great victory).
2. Scarlet Massacre. (Scarlet Earl, who have name Viacheslav Ragnar betrayed king Haraldsson and tried to make his earldom independent. He wanted to be a king in his lands and don`t pay Khruntin forever. Scarlet Earl killed all Haraldsson`s Wardens in his palace. (Kings Wardens were agents of king, who watched work of Earls and controlled their power). Then Ragnar tried to kill all king`s loyal warriors in his city. There was too much blood. Scarlet Earldom was not far from Rogvold lands and king immediately sent messengers to all earls and especially to Rogvold. Rogvold came to Scarlet Earldom with other earls and with the king Haraldsson. Scarlet Earl sent all his warriors against Rogvold`s forces, but part of the army betrayed Scarlet Earl. Then Rogvold simply came to Scarlet city and cut off Ragnar`s head. King Haraldsson presented Rogvold sword of his grandfather, king Mikolaus.)
3. Black Victory. (Kenig-chief of the one Arngrim tribes, who had name Cherv the Black Tongue, attacked villages of Rogvolds earldom. Arngrim drakkars (galleys) were the most fast ships in the Sea of Elders. Rogvold decided to finish Arngrim pirates problem and asked the kings permission to increase his fleet. Haraldssone appreciated this plan and sent to Allfhyd earldom 4 his best drakkars with famous axemen. Son of the king helped Rogvolds earldom. United fleet of kingdom found army of Black Tongue near the Spears Bay. Arngrims fleet was completely destroyed and chief Black Tongue was killed by Rogvolds hand. Rogvold cut off his tongue and forced him to eat this. King Haraldsson presented one of the ships to earl Rogvold).
4. Crossbows Victory. (Tribes of Angry Nomads started to cross Etherlings Kingdom borders. Earl of Farland, who had name Snorri the Crossbowman asked kings help. Earl Rogvold with king Haraldsson came to Farland lands immediately. Angry Nomads forces were not far from Farland city. Pathfinders said to Snorri, Rogvold and king Haraldsson about position of Nomads forces and their camp. In the early morning Rogvold and his allies attacked warriors of Angry Nomads. The first attack was from Farland crossbowmen. In that battle all Nomads were killed with their women and children. Earl Rogvold killed the chief of Nomads by his crossbow arrow. Rogvold was against the full massacre, but kings decision was to killed all Nomads people. Rogvold don`t think even now, that it was great victory).

What is he doing now:
Now noble earl Rogvold is trying to save his earldom from mighty Yotuns, ancient daemons, who came from different worlds. Now life of Rogvold is in big trouble.

Thanks all for reading this, people! Yeah, maybe some ideas are similar to Scandinavia epic sagas, but I never borrow ideas. All text there is absolutely mine. Hope, you`ll make some feedback.

I like it my friend, it's very detailed. I especially like the small part about the Yotuns, they have a great name and sound like they'll be an interesting enemy.

Indeed, you seem to have created much depth. The plot is complex and highly detailed. :)

Alex do not worry about themes that are seemingly reminiscent of other tales or stories - this is the same as music: With so many tales being told, similarities are inevitable.

Last but not least: YOU HAVE to find a good English translator. I bet the story is much more "fluid" in Russian, and the translation above was somewhat tiresome, resulting in overburdening the reader.

Yeah, very good story. I especially like the moral dilemma of the Earl killing all Nomads.

I also wonder whether Earl Bluebeard has a blue beard or not :D
