The North Sea Runesaga is an epic competition for 2-4 players to collect the most Runestones and earn the highly coveted title of Chieftain. Players will progress through each chapter of the North Sea saga (Shipwrights, Raiders and Explorers).
Each chapter offers 3 unique Runestones for players to collect. These are awarded to the first player to achieve a particular objective. Gaining these Runestones also awards players advantages in successive chapters. Each of these Runestones also have 1 or 2 inscriptions (Shield, Horn and Hammer). The first player to gain 3 inscriptions of 1 type collects an additional Runestone for their efforts.
Players also gain 2 Runestones for winning each chapter or 1 Runestone for coming a close second. However, Runestones collected this way do not award any in-game advantages or inscriptions.
Once all 3 chapters have been played, the player with the most Runestones is the overall winner and takes the title of Chieftain!
