The members of the Viking Clan model themselves after their namesake, the Norse Vikings that tore through much of the world in the middle ages. Like our ancestors, we aspire to be brutal warriors and fierce allies. To our brothers in arms, our loyalty is boundless. To our enemies, our wrath knows no limits. We make our living off of pillaging the city of the undead, and by annihilating anyone-infected or human-that gets in our way.
We neither need nor want acceptance. We do not exist to please the masses. We do not go out of our way to pick fights, but nor will we bend to the will of others. Know that should you make any threats against the Vikings, you do so at great personal risk. We live and die as brethren, and to attack one of us is to attack all of us. If, however, you come offering friendship, you will be welcomed at our table with open arms. Vikings may have been vicious in battle, but contrary to popular belief, they were hardly barbarians, and anyone that comes in peace will not be slighted here.
Friends and enemies alike take note. We may go dormant at times, go to root and fall into a deep sleep like the All Father of legend, but make no mistake, we are here and we are here to stay. Vikings never give in and never surrender. As long as one of us remains, we will persevere, we will fight on. A Viking once is a Viking forever...
Our emblem is a symbol of our united strength and valor. The shield represents our duty to protect each other, the axes represent our united effort to defeat our opponents, and the helmet shows our courage - even in death.

"Finns have the power of darkness, Finns are wizards" This was the cry of the Viking warriors who feared nothing... nothing, but the power of the Finns in their dark forests.~Unknown
"Never walk away from home ahead of your axe and sword.You can't feel a battle in your bones or foresee a fight."~The Havamal
"His [Odin's] men rushed forwards without armour, were as mad as dogs or wolves, bit their [enemies] shields, and were as strong as bears or wild oxen, and killed people at a blow, but neither fire nor iron told upon themselves." ~Snorri Sturluson on Berserkers (aka Vikings) in the Ynglinga Saga.

As Vikings we live and die by a rigorous code of conduct. These are the laws of the Viking Clan, and are to be followed at all times. If you break a rule, you will be given three chances to get yourself in order. After the three strikes, you will be kicked.
Courage - Don't back down from a fight or let people walk all over you. Have no fear of death - embrace it - true Nords don't run away.
Truth - Don't lie to your fellow Vikings. Be open and honest with problems. Lies only cause inner turmoil.
Honor - Honor your clansmen, your clan, and your friends. If war comes, be the first to volunteer to fight.
Fidelity - Be loyal to the clan by not multi-clanning with other clans unless they are purple-tier allies. Display your signature and show the world what Viking Clan is like. Loyalty to your clan members should be your first priority.
Discipline - Train hard and learn as much as you can. Train your mind not to fall to every taunt and jeer.
Hospitality - Welcome friends of your friends with open arms. Hand them a bottle of mead. Treat every visitor like a guest. Invite other clans to ally with us so we can build new bonds and friendships.
Self Reliance - Vikings of old knew how to repair their longboats when they were out raiding. Today, you should be able to repair your armour, loot, and boss hunt without tons of assistance from the clan.
Industriousness - Don't complain about bad luck or a failed boss hunt. Grab your axe and train harder!
Perseverance -Don't be discouraged. Every Viking here is here to help your persevere and obtain your goal. Don't stop if the job gets tough or the war goes sour. Push through it, and become a better man for it.

For Members of Viking Clan:
When war is waged by the Vikings, or on the Vikings, we call on all of our members to fight. It is easy to talk trash in the forums. It's something else entirely to go out and fight for the pride of your clan. Conduct yourselves with dignity and honor during times of war. Do not needlessly throw around insults or make a fool of yourself, especially in the face of your enemy. Show them that we are not to be trifled with, either in the forums or in the IC.
For Opponents of Viking Clan:
Wars will be fought in fair battles. No drugs, no double teaming, no trash talk, and no crying. While Vikings may have been "brutal" on the battlefield, we are gentlemen off. Please, show us the same courtesy and be respectful.
