The story of Valhalla

A long time ago, when wild and vicious wolves were still roaming in the forest of the country of the Danes, a numerous and mighty people ruled these plains. They were known and feared throughout the world for their incomparable strength and fighting skill. Out of the mist, they surprised and slaughtered their enemies. These intimidating fighters are known as the mighty Vikings.

The Vikings believed in the incredible Valhalla, Fortress of Odin, Home of the Gods, and the final resting place of the bravest Vikings. “Val” means fallen warrior and it was here the souls of the dead went. The bravest would be welcomed in Asgaard, the town of which those who have earned it, lived. It was a joyful life with women and mead. The greatest achievement after life in this world, would be to set a foot in this powerful fortress. But to gain access to this divine life and the eternal life in Valhalla, you would have to be the victor in many battles and you would have to have suffered a heroic death against a worthy opponent. A difficult and almost impossible demand, that only few could be proud to have fulfilled.

Fighters have countless times travelled the Earth, seeking one opponent that would be able to give them a worthy fight. They have fought and won fight after fight against the reigning champion of wherever they were. Not one of them was worthy. In their continuous hope for the eternal after-life in Valhalla, they kept seeking the Earth for another worthy opponent.

It is here that our tale begins...

Tyr, God of War, has for a long time been watching the many brave warriors, from his throne in Valhalla, in their quest for glory. After many years he considered that it was now time to gather them all at one place, and let them battle it out. The one who will be left undisputed will win the honour to receive a gift from the gods themselves. A belt has been forged by the most skillful blacksmiths of Valhalla. This belt would bring its owner to Valhalla on the day of his death. He would rise as a god, and the right hand man of Tyr himself. And he would be given the great honour of eating at the same table, side by side with the king among gods, the god himself, Odin.

Tyr however is tied to Valhalla and cannot set his feet in our world. Therefore he passed his knowledge and decision on to a mortal...

We have been given the great honour of gathering all of the greatest fighters from all over the world. Here, in the Arena, will fights be fought and screams will roam the air until one will stand left. The fighters have engaged themselves in brutally hard training for this final battle. Every one of them is looking forward with great expectations to this gathering with their worthy equals, and to meet each other in this last honourable fight...

Who will at the end stand undisputed in the ring with the honour, the belt and the place among gods in the mighty Valhalla?
