Valherjar: The Chosen Slain

Epic Roleplaying in a Modern Day Ragnarok


Whatever you believed would happen; you go to Heaven, burn in Hell, spin the next turn on some karmic wheel, or just fade like a flame, death was supposed to be the end of the struggle and strife of this life.

You fell valiantly, in one of the thousands of ways warriors always have; holding the line on some battlefield, tending to the wounded, defending hearth and home -- whatever it was, it defined you, and you died in the pursuit of an ideal greater than yourself.

But, regardless of what you believed, that was only the beginning.

Now you live among the Aesir, the gods of Norse mythology, who are embroiled in an epic struggle for the future of humanity. Ragnarok, the apocalypse ordained to destroy almost all of creation, is on the horizon and you have been recruited to become an elite foot soldier in the clandestine battle to stop it. As a Valherjar you are imbued with the magic of the gods and returned to the modern world, standing along side history's greatest warriors, engaging in a battle of subterfuge, political insurgency, and covert action, desperate to change fate in defiance of destiny.

The Good I love the concept of warriors from all cultures chosen after their deaths to fend off Ragnarok. Very elegant mechanic in which one roll determines speed and success. Interesting grounding in Norse mythology to p [...]

I got this as part of the Haiti bundle and downloaded it mostly out of curiosity but this is some great work. A fresh approach both rule-wise and setting wise. You play slain warriors taken from Valhalla and sent on special missions to earth. Th [...]

I came across this game as part of the Haiti Gamers package and thought it looked interesting, so downloaded it. I was very impressed, great core concept, reminiscent of In Nomine with a Norse twist. The characters are heroes called from Valhall [...]

Valherjar brings a fresh concept to the table: Undead PCs without angst. The Valherjar are men and women of all cultures who died in battle for a cause in which they completely believed. That was the beginning of their adventures. They then head to Val [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
