You know we like all things Viking, which is why we brought you the Viking Bottle Opener. Now we may have come across the ultimate Christmas ornament - with a viking spin. Produced by Violent Little Machine Company, the Valhalla Ticket is a continuation of the morale patches they produce.
The website is full of tactically minded goodness, and we have ordered with them a couple times. The shipping is always fast, and they always include a bonus gift that comes with a dose of sarcasm. This little ornament sells for a measly $8 and will be featured on the Black Diamond Social Club Christmas Tree this Year. Get it here.
If you don't know what Valhalla is, here is a quick read from Wikipedia:
In Norse mythology, Valhalla (from Old Norse Valhöll "hall of the slain") is a majestic, enormous hall located in Asgard, ruled over by the god Odin. Chosen by Odin, half of those who die in combat travel to Valhalla upon death, led by valkyries, while the other half go to the goddess Freyja's field Fólkvangr. In Valhalla, the dead join the masses of those who have died in combat known as Einherjar and various legendary Germanic heroes and kings, as they prepare to aid Odin during the events of Ragnarök. Before the hall stands the golden tree Glasir, and the hall's ceiling is thatched with golden shields. Various creatures live around Valhalla, such as the stag Eikþyrnir and the goat Heiðrún, both described as standing atop Valhalla and consuming the foliage of the tree Læraðr.
