The Great Whale Road - Review

Explorminate checked out the tactical RPG The Great Whale Road:

Monday eXcursion: The Great Whale Road

The Great Whale Road (GWR) is a tactical RPG from Sunburned Games set way back in the good old Viking days that seem to be so popular lately (see also: The History Channel…). Your character starts as the newly minted, albeit unlikely, new village chief after the old chief got himself killed off by a group of Saxons while out on some raid or another. Oh, and almost every warrior in town was with him and they didn’t come back home either. Your mission is to guide your people to prosperity and seek revenge against the folks who robbed your village of all of its semi-competent members.

The game moves through various phases as time passes. You do some village management to gather food and produce trade goods and resources. You sail around the North Atlantic and handle random events. Visiting other towns lets you buy and sell goods, engage in combat, and rest up before heading back home to prepare for another winter.
