Mongoose have published a complete setting and backgrond book for RuneQuest II called Vikings.
The game looks at viking myths but also influenced by historical truths.
Here’s a quote from the free preview.
Another unusual aspect of Viking culture is their approach to hunting. Although respected as a valued skill, hunting is not entertainment per say, rather a necessity to gather valuable pelts or fresh meat. Of course, a group of men may treat a hunt as incidental fun but the objective is not indolent pleasure.
A Viking hunt is rarely performed on horseback. The forests and fells covering much of Scandinavia make cross country riding hazardous and most of the creatures being hunted required cover to approach close enough to ambush.
Hunting fearsome animals such as boars or bears on foot is a very dangerous prospect, as is hunting whales or walruses at sea. Successfully killing a great beast gains the slayer much reputation for the noteworthy accomplishment, especially if achieved singlehandedly.
