Armed with a bow, a sword, shield and light armour, Norse archers are weak at shooting, but can stand their ground in melee.
These men have inherited a fine Viking tradition of bow-armed warriors. Drawn from the ranks of free farmers, they are able to afford some light protection, and a sword for close combat, for which they have far more appetite than other light archers. On the other hand, their bows are weak and of a simple construction due to the cold climate.
