You are King Harald Hardrada, founder of Oslo, the most feared warrior of your time and the last Viking King! Yet shocking rumors concerning your city have reached you from beyond the grave and your fierce reputation is under threat!

Could it be true those noisy neighbors – the Swedes and Danes - have invaded Norway? Was your nation really plagued by…the plague? And what is this ‘Peace Prize’ Oslo is famous for? Not very Viking! 

After feasting in the afterlife halls of Valhalla for centuries, you have been sent back to reclaim Norway’s capital by Odin, God of War. For the sake of the Viking legacy…LET BATTLE COMMENCE!

Erg leuk om te doen

Timeline was chaotic, riddles were boring. Harlad is als annoying. It should be pointed out that the fortress closes at half past 9

The quests were nice but towards the second half, the quests were out of order making it impossible to find the correct way to the next place only from the route description. That should be fixed quickly.
