Thoughts

>> Question, I thought the people in Vinland were supposed to have been either vaguely Inuit or vaguely Micmac, not Algonquins? <<

It varies, depending on whose records of tribal territory you use and where you believe Vinland was (there are multiple theorized locations). Inuit, Micmac, and Algonquin have all been cited in that general part of the world. Since this is alternate history, I figure that's sufficient.

>> I still think the chunkiest bits of Vinland are how nasty Leif's sister Freydis was. She's such a dramatically strong-willed character I'm surprised you haven't written about her before. <<

You could always suggest her in a future prompt.
