“Strange to see how a good dinner and feasting reconciles everybody.” - Samuel Pepys


After the death of their king, the Vikingr had no reason for invasion. They very nearly continued their raid to recoup their losses, but the English took advantage of the lull brought by the messenger- not to turn the tide of battle, but to offer freely that which the Vikingr would otherwise take by force.


The Vikingr, despite their reputation, did not thirst for blood and battle. They too had taken losses, and accepted the offer readily, though cautiously. The feast of Michaelmas to celebrate the autumnal equinox was but a few days away, and true to their word, the English brought forth food and drink in fellowship- and in the end, both viking and englishman treated each other like old friends, and were merry.
