It’s hard to believe that Valhalla Lost has been running (continuously) for 15 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 run the POL core and there has been a resurgence in updating the core so we will be moving to the latest one. We also plan to move from Mondain’s Legacy onto the High Seas client (the latest client offered straight from OSI) with all the High Seas glory. Unfortunately, we’re still updating the maps so it wasn’t able to be brought out in time for the anniversary but we’re getting there! Soon there will be galleons, new quests, new skills and a revamped combat system and many customs items to find!
On August 21, 2016, Eron the Ugly and Elga the Uruk belched the holy song of their people into each others faces, followed by a sacrificial goat chase and fireworks ceremony under the pews, which left the crowd of attendees with several burns and trips to the healer. We wish them the best for their explosive relationship.

On January 3rd, we gathered to witness the joining of Sauran and Maranda in a beautiful ceremony presided over by Lord Odin.
After the ceremony, we feasted on the finest foods and danced until that pesky orc, Gul’kyt decided to show us how to really get our groove on which we did for several special dances he shared with us.
