    The viking weapon list is a little different from the standard D&D list.
Simple Melee Weapons

  • Dagger/Knife
  • Handaxe
  • Javelin "Gaflak"
  • Spear
Simple Range Weapons

  • Sling
Martial Melee Weapons

  • Battleaxe
  • Glaive "Atgeirr"
  • Greataxe
  • Halberd "höggspjót"
  • Longsword
  • Shortsword "Sax"
Martial Ranged Weapons

  • Longbow

  • Padded
  • Leather
  • Chain Shirt
  • Shield
  • Helmet
A typical man had a shield, an axe or a spear. A lot of them carry a sax as a secondary weapon. A wealthy man would own a sword. Very expensive and passed down as heirlooms. Swords are named by their owner.
