|Examine text||A warrior of Miscellania / Etceteria.|
Skraelings, or Skraelingjar are the warriors that guard Miscellania and Etceteria. If you fail to steal from a stall in a Miscellania or Etceteria market, they will say, "Get your hands off there!" and attack you.
If you kill him in Miscellania, your popularity rating will decrease, and you will get fewer resources from the kingdom until you gain that popularity back. However, if you kill him in Etceteria, your popularity rating will NOT decrease.
- Skraelings may be based off real life Skrælingjar, the name given by the Norse Greenlanders to the Thule people, an Inuit tribe that wandered the arctic.
- It is also possible that the name Skraeling is based off the Scandinavian word skral, meaning scrawny. Not surprisingly, Skraelings have only 200 life points.
- Sometimes, when killed, he will say "I'm a gonner!" This has yet to be fixed.
