The Battle of Aberdeen occurred on October 7, 2006, between Britain and the Kingdom of Lym. The Golden Fleet was en route to the Atlantic Ocean to begin trolling for the Fridge of the Mods when Thorvald of Lym spied Kan' Sharuminar. The centuries-old feud between Norse and Scot led to a rapid battle. A Scots force of 8,000 men managed to rout a Norse army 157 times its size with minimal casualties, taking over half the opposing army prisoner. Thorvald's aggression also caught the attention of CivGeneral, who debated taking military action against the perceived threat.
