Northgard - Vordr, Clan of the Owl

The Clan

Subsisting through the ages, the secretive norns of Vördr keep watch over all realms in Northgard and beyond. Protectors of Yggdrasil, the sisters Skuld, Verdandi, and Urdr, use the power of this sacred tree to spread their knowledge inexorably across the land.

Warchief – The three sisters of fate

The three sisters, known as messengers of the tree, ensure the clan's well-being.
Skuld, the youngest, drives aggressive clan expansion with her youthful energy. Verdandi, the middle sister, protects Yggdrasil and links the clan to the world around it. Urdr, the eldest, leads the clan in their never ending pursuit of knowledge thanks to her profound connection with Yggdrasil.
A chosen sister shall assume the mantle of leadership, each of them tending to their people as the need arises, in accordance with their unique attributes.

The seeds of Yggdrasil, and root of Wisdom

Vôrdr, touched by the blessings of Yggdrasil, does not need to gather wood. Instead, their sacred duty is to nourish the ancient tree with the lore they amass. In this manner, they nurture it, causing it to grow in diverse manifestations.
The Yggdrasil serves as the foundation for their constructions and serves as a conduit to spread their enigmatic branches throughout the realms of Northgard. These branches, infused with knowledge, are distributed as they see fit, be it on neutral, allied or even hostile lands.
The potential of such knowledge is a mysterious realm unto itself…

All in all, it has to be said that Northgard is an extremely promising premise. It has a good storyline with challenging campaigns. While there are some minor hiccups here and there, overall, it's an awesome addition to the RTS genre.

Northgard is a surprising, elegant RTS that's laden with a very dull story.
