The Clan of the Raven Join the Northgard

Ravens are a major element in the Norse mythology, Old One Eye (Odin) had two of them, one sat atop each shoulder, that would tell him about both the past and future.

Huginn and Muninn, memory and thought. They’d fly out, each day, learn as much as they could, come back and squawk all their knowledge directly into his ears, which sounds extremely painful, but the All-father gives no fucks, because he’s just that badass.

Anyway, given that, it makes sense that the Clan of the Raven in Northgard would be rather canny folk. A faction of traders and merchants, they have a unique building which allows them to scout faster, the harbour. They can also recruit mercenaries to go and attack other areas at a distance for them…because why sully your own hands, right?

Official Press Release

Shiro Games will today introduce the first new faction for their Viking strategy game Northgard, the Clan of the Raven.

The new clan comes with a new update offering a host of fixes and improvements, including an overhauled combat system with improved controls and balancing, and the ability to purchase building slots.

The Clan of the Raven are great explorers and merchants, with their mighty fleet allowed them to be among the first to set foot on Northgard. They are strong trade partners, but players need to watch out for their constant scheming.

Brash and swift, the Raven receive trading bonuses as well as a new building, the Harbor which replaces the Docks allowing them to scout faster. The clan also has the ability to hire mercenaries to attack faraway territories and use kröwns instead of food to pay for colonization.

Northgard has been released on Steam Early Access on February 22nd and quickly became one of the most popular strategy games, being consistently featured as a global top seller in the week after launch.
