SHVA13 - Brian Boru
Brian Boru was born in the 9th century. His early life was dedicated to supporting his brother Mahon, king of Munster, in the struggle with the Norsemen, who tried to impose taxes on their lands. Brian became king in 975 when the Vikings murdered his brother. Inheriting the kingdom, he launched a series of wars with the Irish kingdoms, with the ultimate goal of unifying Ireland, a dream that was made true in 1003 when he was crowned Ard Ri na hEireann. The High King Brian Boru generates three SAGA dice at the start of each turn, and not two as other Warlords. Unlike other Heroes of the Viking Age, you may exchange your Warlond for Brian Boru for free. He does not cost you one point like other Heroes of the Viking Age do, but is still worth seven victory points.
