Suiones Druhtiz Frijaz(Scandinavian Spearmen)
From lands with a harsh climate in eastern Svealand, these people are accustomed to fighting every day for their own survival. In warfare it is up to each man to prove his own bravery and worth, so their uniquely savage charge into the enemy enables them to perform slightly better than their neighbours in that respect.
In his heart of hearts, the German tribesman was a warrior and only a warrior. When not fighting, he was seeking out another fight. Only in battle could a man earn the glory and wealth needed to improve his position within the tribe. This was not an easy life, and only the toughest lived idly away from the battlefield. Others had to work, toiling in the fields and forests, awaiting glory that could be won in battle or by raiding against the tribe's enemies.
