This post is part of a series on unpublished Warhammer works. The first post in the series is here.
The freelance writer Paul Vernon was involved with WFRP1 from an early stage. In the first-edition rulebook he received a credit for “additional material”. It was planned that his involvement would extend to supplements for the game. His first effort, a campaign in the Border Princes, hit a wall, but his second, a guide to Norsca, apparently progressed further.
Jim, Phil, and I tasked him with putting together a proposal for a Norsca supplement. He did a pretty thorough job of creating a Viking sourcebook for WFRP, but like Testubo [sic] which was also in development at the same time, it didn’t nail the Warhammer feel and languished in a to-be-developed file before disappearing completely.

The supplement turned out to be Vernon’s last project for WFRP. Despite my best efforts, I have sadly found no other trace of it. If anyone knows more (or happens to have a copy of it lying in the attic), please feel free to share!
