The Aftermath Gaming Club, Norwich will be hosting our first annual SAGA tournament at Lazar House, Sprowston Road, Norwich, Norfolk, NR3 4HX on Sunday July 17th 2016.
WHAT IS SAGA?
On the 8th June 793AD the quiet monastery of Lindisfarne on the north-east coast of England was attacked and plundered by sea-born raiders - the Age of the Vikings had begun. For more than two centuries, the fury of the northmen was unleashed across the British Isles, inspiring awe and abject terror. War waged between Anglo-Saxons, Welsh, Vikings and Normans until, finally, the Normans achieved domination on top of Senlac Hill at the Battle of Hastings, 1066. This period of history was an age of endemic warfare that saw mighty warlords at the head of their warbands struggle for power, wealth and glory, writing their legends with steel and the blood for their enemies. Dark times that brought us the tales and deeds of legendary heroes like Harold Godwinson, William the Bastard or Ragnar Lothbrok. Saga is a game for model soldiers set in the Viking Age when strength and bravery were worth a thousand men.
Immerse yourself in this age of heroes and write your own sage.
