The Vikings are most certainly not quaking in their boots. Now that we've paid them their protection money then they'll keep coming back for more and we'll have to ensure that they know their place as soon as possible. Not a great start to our diplomacy, but I suppose this was what the people instructed our Queen to do so well done to her! Damned democracy! I am going to presume that we are not going to concern ourselves with our reputation too much in this game so this peace treaty won't set us back too far. Once our forces arrive in striking distance of the AI though, can I suggest that we demand tribute from them so that they declare war on us and our rep is intact.
