The show portrays Ragnar as a farmer who rises to fame by successful raids into England, and eventually becomes a Scandinavian king, with the support of his family and fellow warriors: his brother Rollo, his son Björn Ironside, and his wives—the shieldmaiden Lagertha and the princess Aslaug. The series is inspired by the tales of the raiding, trading, and exploring Norsemen of early medieval Scandinavia. It follows the exploits of the legendary Viking chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok and his crew and family, as notably laid down in the 13th century sagas Ragnars saga Loðbrókar and Ragnarssona þáttr, as well as in Saxo Grammaticus's 12th century work Gesta Danorum.

Le jeu de rôle est un loisir assez méconnu, auquel la plupart des non-joueurs ne connaissent rien. A des joueurs totalement novices, et potentiellement déconnectés de la culture geek, SF, et a fortiori lovecraftienne, j’ai l’habitude de présenter le jeu comme « un jeu de société où l’on incarne des personnages, mélangé avec les histoires d’épouvante racontée au coin du feu ».
