VIKINGS!!! IN!!!! SPACE!!!! A True Tale of Alternate History, presented by Sid Meier’s Civilization VI. We begin our adventure in Nidaros, the captial city of Norway. It is here that the nomadic Nords nestled near the natural wonder of the Galapagos Islands. Golly that’s a lot of science output from those tiles! And how! Norway knew knowledge was the bees knees, and looked for a new way to exchange ideas with Sumeria. Ideas that were not just grunts and gestures. If only we had a way to exchange ideas! EUREKA MY DEAR! Now they could build a Campus for even more science! They sent their ships to survey the seas! Look! Those guys seem smart! We should be their friends. Or Suzerain. Meanwhile: A mystic in a nearby tribal village had a stunning revalation: Steer your ships by Celestial Navigation! With newfound wisdom our heroes set out once more. Much to their dismay, however, they found that what they thought was the worlds vast ocean was merely an inland sea! However, the ingenuity of Norway was not to be underestimated. They founded Bergen and Oslo, cities that serve as canals, and excitedly exited into an expansive ocean! Let’s go fellas, there’s a whole wide world out there just waiting for us! But the villainous Spartans, led by vile Queen Gorgo, viciously attacked without provocation! Our weariless warriors circumnavigated the continents, and flanked the fearsome foe! We vanquished them in the name of science! And so concludes today’s episode. Join us next time for more True Tales of Alternate History, as the greatest minds of the age combine their forces to put the Vikings in Space!
