Berserkr

reward item
reward item
$500
per month
Berserkrs were the reason Vikings couldn't have nice things. They were the shock troops, ultra-elite warriors who fought in a trance-like fury often ignoring wounds (even fatal ones) and displaying superhuman strength. They inspired the English word 'berserk' and at least one video game.

Don't do this level. Really. We don't want to be responsible for you going raiding or sacking a neighboring village. If you are going to ignore our advice and do this anyway, please don't do it for an entire year.

About Erik Henry Vick

Vick's Valhalla is an online community for Vick's Vikings who want to support our journey and enjoy increased access to our lives, Erik's writing, and exclusive stuffs (like unicorns or Christmas tree ornaments made from orange peels or... Melissa says: No. Just no).

Seven is the number representing completeness in Norse mythology, so of course, we have seven tiers. If you want to be complete, you must join all seven (not really--just join the one that works best for me you). Joining us here provides the opportunity to see more of our daily lives including our: Favorite Things, Viewfinder, Letters from Psychopets, Book Club, Candid Camera, and a bunch of live stuff like raiding parties, ship burning, and invading England (Tuesday evenings at 9pm).
