The Vikings entered at Medway and attacked Rochester, but were unable to seize the town due to strong resistance. Alfred arrived with an army, which forced some of the Vikings to retreat back to their ships and sail for Francia, while another group of Vikings stayed behind and came to terms with the King.

1. Yes, Vikings must Storm
2. Banner is permanent, and in fact the stormed gate is removed.
so I was intending to update the Victory condition to read "Vikings get 1 banner for each city gate removed by storm".

theoretically the act of occupation and removal are simultaneous, but I could forsee some debate.

"Vikings gain 1 banner for each gate occupied by a Viking unit"

Couple of questions, as per the rules ( ) "Enemy units and lone Leaders of the city may not move, retreat or evade onto or through a hex with a city gate; An enemy unit must first successfully storm the city gate to move onto a city gate hex."

1) So I assume that Vikings need first to storm the gate, and only than can occupy it?
2) is the banner permanent? What if Viking is pushed back from the stormed gate?
