    Chapter One: The Trials of Morcar
    Part 1


    Prelude
    The fields of Northumberland were empty. Morcar Leofricson had sent his men far and wide to find a new Saxon homeland. In 1067 Morcar and his brother Edwin had allied with each other and other Saxon rulers against William the Conqueror. The resulting civil war would last until 1072 when William would annex all of the territories of the Saxon Earls. But the year is 1068 and the civil war is looking bad as troops from France were landing in Kent to support William. The help from Scotland and Denmark never came, and Morcar was forced to make a harsh choice, continue to fight the losing war or flee with his subjects to a far-off land. His marshal, a Danish man, pointed out a region ripe for attack and colonization without complaint from other Christian Kingdoms. In September Morcar set sail for the Baltic coast of Prussia.


    September 21st, 1068

    The seas were rough and the ship pitched around violently. Many of the Saxon warriors had been sailors all of their lives, and took no notice. However their children and wives and sisters did not handle the movement as well, so the ship reeked of human refuse. The fleet was massive, carrying some 3,000 Saxon warriors and almost 10,000 civilians. With about 100 ships, Earl Morcar led his people eastward to the pagan lands of the Baltic. He sailed in a ship with black sails and trailing a massive black banner.


    Banner of Morcar the Exile


    “Back home we are called ‘Nýdfara’,” a sailor told his Earl.

    “Fugitives?”

    “Yes, m’lord. We sail away from our farms and home. We have left England and your brother behind.”

    “We owe a duty to ourselves more than petty blood feuds.”

    “Sir?”

    “The war is lost; there is nothing more to it. With France supporting William we cannot possibly win, just become a constant thorn in the side of the Normans. We are more than that.”

    “The people are worried. We’ve never heard of or seen these lands. I’ve heard they are full of werewolves.”

    Morcar was quiet; he knew too well the superstitions of his people. The ship tossed and rolled over waves. “I have yet to see a werewolf in England, I hardly think we shall find one here.”

    “Earl, we look to you for our guidance.”

    “I understand, I pray that you have not misplaced your trust.” The Earl placed his hand on the young soldier’s shoulder.

    The North Sea tried its best to ruin the Saxon’s plans for invasions, but in ten days’ time Jutland lay in the horizon. Rounding the straits of Jutland proved difficult as well, and Morcar was forced to constantly work to keep his fleet together. After some twenty days at sea, and the loss of 20 ships with 2500 souls lost.


    October 11th, 1068

    Earl Morcar sat on the deck of his ship; the black sail tattered and riddled with holes. In the distance say a bay drenched in sunlight poking out from behind thick clouds. He stood up to take in the sight and others soon joined him on deck looking into a glorious sight.

    “My Earl,” exclaimed a sailor, “What heaven is this we have descended into?”

    “My advisors say it is called Prussia and hence forth we are Prussians, and we shall build our capital here.”

    About mid-day, the scouts had returned to the ships and called an all-safe to land the civilians and troops. The ships were dragged ashore and flipped to be used as temporary shelters. The next morn soldiers went out to cut down trees and begin the building of a new city. The new city was named Marienscír, but its construction soon attracted the attention of natives to the regions. From the forest they watched, but their intent was not peace or trade.

    In November of 1068 the Prussian War broke out between the Saxons and the native Prussians. Morcar and his commanders from Northumbria fought against over-whelming numbers of pagans, and despite the numerical disadvantage managed to achieve victory after a brutal winter of fighting.

    By summer the war had ended and the Prussian tribes had been subjugated by the Saxons. Marienscír grew quickly as the Saxon warriors settled down after the war. They came back with Prussian wives and prisoners made up a large part of the workforce. This created a social hierarchy with the Saxon nobility on top and the Prussian prisoners on the bottom. Even so, with more troops at the disposal of the Earl, the safety of the Saxons was guaranteed for the time being.

    So, you edit Prussia to be Saxon culture? I think that would be interesting to have it spread thru Europe. I wonder what they would call their language be like under influence of Prussian.

    No, I am exiled Saxon earls ruling over the Prussian people and region. As for the language I can ask my girlfriend, she studies language evolution.

    Haha, no real werewolves. It is just a superstitious soldier.

    I am really trying to play this one natural, ie by ear with no real plans, and playing things by rulers. Cruel rulers will have issues holding the nation together, heretical ones will appease the pagans, and martial ones will go a conquering. I can't ruin too much though.

    Chapter One: The Trials of Morcar
    Part 2


    Prelude:
    In the two years after the invasion of the Prussian tribes, the County of Marienscír (Marienshire) was developing. It had made enemies with two local tribes in particular, the Sambians and the Samogitians. The local Prussians and the Saxon invaders had a tenuous relationship with one another. Religiously the two clashed often, but the new trade and technologies the Saxons brought as well as the castles they built stabilized the Prussians. Prussian leaders recognized that the Saxons put them in an advantage over the local tribes. In the two years, a large number of Anglo-Prussians had been born, usually from Saxon fathers and Prussian mothers. Tensions rose over the future sight of Cyningscír (Cyningshire) where the Anglo-Prussians attempted to build a fishing wharf.


    Map of the Baltic Coast in 1070, Marienscír in orange, Sambia in Blue and Samogitia in Pink.



    April 13th, 1070

    Morcar sat under a roof that was once the ship he had sailed to this far-off and mysterious land. The great longhouse, the Géancymeinn, served as Morcar’s capital and his home. He read letters from his brother Edwin, the only other person who knew of his location. His brother wrote that the war was still raging, and that Northumbria was still under the control of the Saxons. He suggested that in time Morcar could return with his Saxons and Prussians to drive a killing blow to William, but Morcar remained skeptical.

    “My lord, we have word from the northern settlements.”

    “Yes, and what do they send, Marshal?”

    “It seems local natives are not willing to cooperate. In fact, two large coastal tribes seem to have banded together to fight us.”

    “And here we are with a mere 3,000 soldiers.”

    “Spies say that the enemy has about a combined total of 4,000 soldiers, but we shall defeat them with pure might.”

    “I trust you to lead the host with honor.”

    “I will, my lord. The pagans have put little resistance to my sword so far, I doubt it will be an issue.”

    Morcar had suffered a nearly fatal wound during the Prussian wars. His wound left him homebound and very weak.

    The Sambian Wars started in the summer of 1070 and lasted until November of that same year. Some 3,000 Saxon soldiers and 1,000 Prussian allies fought against some 6,000 tribal warriors. The wars attracted little attention from Christendom. William the Conqueror was very much unaware that one of his major rivals had escaped to the Baltic coast.


    The County of Marienscír and its three fortresses.



    December 1st, 1070

    The victory over the Sambians and Samogitians put the Saxons in a strong position. Morcar had ordered three fortresses to be built to protect the three major Saxon settlements. In Cyningscír the Saxons began work on one of these fortresses. On an island just off the coast of port the fortress would eventually stand. Built between 1070 and 1073 and then expanded throughout the years it would eventually grow to be one of the largest castles in the Baltic region.

    Meanwhile, Morcar was faced with the reinvasion of England, an action that many in his court supported. His brother Edwin had sailed to meet with the exiles.

    “Morcar, we stand in a position to win this war!”

    “I don’t believe it; Philippe of France will ensure William remains on the throne. He cannot risk an England that is not allied to France.”

    “But brother, even Normans have joined our cause!”

    “Edwin, they are after their own gains. They don’t care about our cause; they don’t care about our power.”

    “And you would rather rule over this swamp?”

    “I would, if the alternative was death.”

    “Well, you seek dishonor.”

    “Dishonor will be forgotten, but here our dynasty is planted to grow. History will remember that.”

    “And I shall never forget, brother.”

    The two brothers were silent, staring at each other. Morcar was seated on his throne, and warmed under a blanket he hid his illness from his followers and now his brother. Edwin eventually convinced his brother to send support to England to help the cause of the Saxon Earls and their Norman allies. The next year would bring one of the bloodiest years in the English civil war.

    It is good to see Saxons surviving, and maybe a future Anglo-Prussian king of Lithuania.

    You're making good headway amongst the Prussians, it is a pity we can't do much more to help our brothers back home, but ce la guerre eh? Hopefully the civil war will go well for the English.

    Nice work there. You've made this strange new world seem very real. Don't spend too much time fighting in England or you're likely to find your nice new castles full of Lithuanians.

    I wonder if the Saxon culture of the royalty and nobility will be replaced by Prussian culture, in time. It happened in England, except with Norman culture being replaced.

    Heck, who wouldnt want to be Prussian? Granted, we are talking about Old Prussian, but it's just as awesome to me!

    Well, it looks like some more Saxons (Englisc) will end up fleeing to Prussia.

    That would be an interesting synthesis of Englisc and Prussian culture and language, especially since there are enough Saxons to keep their culture language living on, if not heavy influence on any future culture; according to your story.

    I still suggest that in the time Prussia should become either Saxon cultured or mod in a new culture, Anglo-Prussian, to represent the merged culture and mixed language. I would see there being three main language in time, Englisc with strong Prussian influence for the elite and their family, Englisc diluted with Prussian, Anglo-Prussian, (like Romanian with extremely heavy influence from Slavic languages) for the knights, merchants, and higher level of peasants and freemen, and Prussian with Englisc influence for the serfs and perhaps Prussian who joined Englisc freely. I have a hunch that in the end, it will be Anglo-Prussian being the main language for the people in area.

    Excellent chapter! Good luck!

    Wow, I am quite surprised with everyone's enthusiasm for this AAR. I enjoy writing this one because the chapters are short and easy on my eyes. In my last AAR each update was a minimum of 5 pages single spaced, these are about 2 double. It means I can write them in between lab reports and homework.

    Chapter three has a prelude, but no story yet... and I have a lab report and some aeromechanics to figure, so I'll be around.
