Berserker's Cry

Skäne will typically open combat with this grim song:

deyja skepna, deyja frændr,
Við sjálfir deyja einnig.
ÉG vita einn hlutur þessi er ódauðlegur:
Heiður af orrusta dauður!

translation from Skald:

Beasts die, kin die,
we ourselves die also.
I know one thing that is deathless:
The honour of the battle dead!

For DMRandall - Default Combat Options:

If unarmoured [in situations when already armoured and "combat ready" jump straight to Berserker's Cry]:

Round 1: Don Armoured Coat [move action], draw battle axe* [free action**] and ready shield [free action**]
Round 2: Berserker's Cry [standard action]
Round 3: Close to opponent using either 5 foot step or Charge [Distance dependent & target most immediate threat or if tactics have been discussed follow these]
Round 4: Continue to engage or repeat Round 3 to next opponent.

During combat if other member of the party looks to be overwhelmed or dropped in combat - disengage [risk AoO] and Charge & Bullrush their opponent [+2 CMB for Charge] in heroic fashion!

* Unless in tactically ranged combat Skäne will typically arm for melee.
** Due to +1 BAB

Background How Skäne might look

Skäne “Countless” Ingvârssonn appears to be the archetypal Viking; Tall and brawny who bears a number of scars, wears his wild reddish-blond hair braided and sports an unkempt beard which frames his ice blue eyes.

About his person he wears a battered leather coat reinforced with iron plates and overlayed with a fur cloak. Skane's waist and thighs are further protected by an mended armoured kilt of Easterner design. The inside of his coat clinks with a due of throwing axes, and at his hip sits a black metal chakram throwing blade; in his hands Skäne holds a battleaxe whose sharp blade is bitten with use and the signature small wooden shield of the Viking reaver - upon its face a faded sea wyrm.

As one of the many bastard sons of Ingvâr Sharptunga - an infamous skald of the North, Skäne's life to date have been a series of blood feuds, duels and shieldwall battles all caused by his father’s questionable honour and reputation. The North has made this boy into a hard-bitten man, as cold as the land that spawned him.

Exiled from his homeland, Skäne plies his trade as a mercenary with axe and voice wherever there is a reason to fight, the coin to hire him and a potential place in the sagas to claim for himself. Recently he fell in with the crew of longship “The Haar-Witch”, but their last raid went sour and Skäne and his oarbrother Bjorn Helsingrson were lucky to escape with their lives. After weeks in the wild, the Northmen have healed up and hired on as caravan guards bound for Deeptown...
