About Us

The Northmen is not like any other Deer Isle server. Why? no traders, no safezones, no bullshit. We take inspiration from our chernarus server and implement it on deer isle for a perfect vanilla+ inspired server, while keeping the vanilla aspect of the deer ilse map itself – with temples, keycards, polarbears, pinkies and more! Also we got old features like leather crafting, barrel tannin, spraypainting and true item sizes? Not to mention the craftable ghilliesuits, hunting scope on Mosin.


Autorun and Earplugs for comfort. Map and Groups for convenience. Chat with the community and claim your Territory!

and the best thing for deer isle – Rafts! Craft them, pack them and set sail!

vanilla basebuilding + doors

Vanilla base building and codelocks. Furnish your base with supply crates, lockers, gunracks and more. Raid gates using weapons, explosives or hacksaws!

as an long awaited addition we have standalone doors that can be built. no more bulky gates to cover a small pathway!

go on an adventure and complete tasks for the ultimate reward!

Get high-grade weapons at the K-MUC. Travel to the jungle temple and find Mjölnir. Journey to the North and find the crypt to be able to enter the aircraft carrier. You will fail, but if you do succeed, you will be invincible.

Gear up with matching outfits or windstride civilan clothing!

Have you wished for a TTSKO Plate Carrier? Or black Gorka clothes? Say no more! With SOTA vanilla retexture you get the vanilla style clothing on more clothes! More options, more styles, more fun!

We also have windstride’s clothing pack to give more variations to civilan type clothing!

c4 raiding + hacksaws

The vanilla explosives has a better use in pvp. Thats why we use breaching charges since the vanilla raiding is very unreliable.

Raid storage with raiddriver, code locks with raidsaw and gates/watchtowers with c4 breaching charges.

Full guide – easy to understand, can be found in our discord under our “Getting started” category.
