It’s hard to believe Valhalla Lost is now old enough to drive a car and is getting close to voting age! Many young players who started here are now returning with their own kids. Above is a picture drawn by Lord Odin’s grandson to commemorate the anniversary. Looks like Volund will soon have some competition (he drew the splash page on the client)!
It’s hard to believe that Valhalla Lost has been running (continuously) for 16 years! The shard started off as a family game in Odin’s basement after he discovered the first emulators and Freya was enjoying playing on OSI. From there it grew as the family invited their friends and family to play.
So what’s in store for Valhalla Lost? We are running the POL 099 core and have updated to the High Seas client (the latest client offered straight from OSI) with all the High Seas glory. New quests, New skills and a revamped combat system and many customs items to find!
Winner of the Scary Story Contest is Odeth BuisyBeard.
It seemed like any other day in Valhalla. Birds were singing at the town square. Merchants were hustling and bustling. And thieves were, well of course, thieving. I had decided to take a stroll to the garden just outside the city walls. It was a place for great tale telling, gossip and the usual banter. After wasting near half the day sifting through all the leg pulling and witty remarks being thrown about, I realized I had better stop stalling before I ended up with nothing in hand for dinner. As I strolled down the path north from town, I had noticed a strange portal out of the corner of my eye. Could it lead to another realm perhaps? Possibly leading to better hunting grounds? The sounds and smell as I approached would reveal otherwise. I proceeded to step into the portal because, well, who would pass on a story like that! Adventure and fame, or certain doom. I would prefer the former (who wouldn’t – Ed). Upon entering, I had stepped into a thick and eerie mist that seemed to linger just above the ground.
What does Odeth find in the portal? Will it be fame and fortune (isn’t it always?). Find out in-game!
On Valentine’s Day, Sedrick the Cupid Dragon showed up around the lands of Valhalla. It was a mad search for him but one brave little gassy orc found him, killed him and got his special head. Good job, Elga. And to all those hunting Valentine Bears, we hope you found the special prizes!
And a belated congratulations to Ghrim Darksbane for blowing away the competition at the gingerbread house decorating contest. Odin Claus was very pleased with your contribution and let out a large burp as his way of saying, “good job”… you deserve it.
The warriors of Valhalla haven’t been very good boys and girls this year as Krampus has come to visit!
Was it because of naughty little orcs who blow their noses all over the gardens signs leaving green piles of icky goo? Or those who like to hunt down innocent wild elves? Or the really naughty people who tame cute bunnies and make them fight to the death?
Krampus likes to hang around the forests outside of towns. He is not a regular spawn so you will have to keep looking around for him. And he has a chance to drop a special bracelet!
There were Nine Worlds upon which many great battles were fought. These monumental battles were fought between realms, races, guilds, tribes and gods alike; There was one battle yet to be…
This battle to end all battles would come to be known as:
– – RAGNAROK – –
A devastating battle where god would befall god. The God Heimdall, Watcher of the Gods, would denote the destruction of Bifrost, the Rainbow Bridge, by sounding his great horn, Gjallor. — Odin, The All-Father, will be slain in a duel with Fenris. — Surtr, the flame giant, mortal enemy of Odin, will kill Frey, God of the Elves.
