On the surface, Valheim appears as a colorful land of Norse adventure, with fairy tale vistas and fantastical beasts. But behind this facade lurks a grim history of old hatreds, foul magic, and suffering. In this series, we will explore the grim legends, forgotten folklore, and disturbing tales which shape the land of Valheim into a realm no viking dared venture unprepared.
