I have encountered a problem with translating this phrase to Polish. What does it refer to - overall "Northmen" or the specific group of people speaking Old Norse? Did you think about that or you just put it in there?

    I think both work but more so it's used to refer to people who spoke "old" Norse

    Not that it matters now, but it refers to citizens, tradesmen, sailors and warriors living in Scandinavia. (Norway, Sweden and Denmark)

    Also why is Berserker not called Ulfsark?

    Denshin is a rather overpowered class.

    Nope. Scandinavia consists of Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Where as the Nordic countries are Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland. Pretty sure about that.

    Norsemen are the people from the north, and thus pretty much everyone from the region of Scandinavia. Vikings are technically Norse pirates. To go viking was to go on journeys to pillage and plunder, basically to commit piracy. Later the name of vikings was given roughly the same meaning as Norsemen.

    Well... damn.

    Don't forget about the Faroe Islands though.

    It would make more sense. If they ever introduce different skins/modeltypes of same class there should totally be a real berserk one and have the old one be named ulfsark.

    Also archers technically aren't knights, but that doesn't really matter, does it?

    I was just going to tell you I found it interesting and funny how you doubted my knowledge of what "Scandinavia" is while I live here, but luckily KNUDA.knatch came to you first. lol.

    Furthermore, the original region referred to as "Scandinavia" only consisted of Norway and Sweden while Denmark was later added.
