Player Information

General Gaming Experience

Valkyrie calls for a different gameplay style; or alternatively, it
legitimates the style of not using magic. She hates all kinds of magic,
and “slays” creatures strong in magic. On the other hand, she denies all
magic to her followers as well. In exchange, she gives strong protection
against magic.

Wait a minute; if there's no magic, then what's the point of the slaying
thing? And more importantly, how do you level up?

The slaying thing will only affect enchanted weapons, and she gives them
rather frequently (as weapons are sacred to her).

As for levelling up, that's the fun part.
Valkyrie will accept sacrifices on her altar; you should pick up
flesh, bring it to the altar, and then pray.
You'll gain praying exp as a fraction of the monster's exp (which is stored as an attribute in the flesh object).
Heads and hearts are worth slightly more.

Valkyries altar can be found in the basement of the barracks just below the armour shop in Scorn .
Additional altars are located throughout the world.

Valkyrie also fosters patience in her followers, expect to spend longer than usual
on the altar to receive blessings.

Evaluative Criticism

This stands to be the most challenging cult to play.
Restrictions to spell access (not just prayers, but all spells) may prove to be interesting.
In attempt to compensate for that, this cult gains the weapon enchantment ability (easily and at early levels)
to slay a large selection of monsters which are very common in many maps.

Additional Comments

Followers are denied to *all* spell schools, so they'll never be able to cast *any* spells;
they gain praying experience by dropping monster body parts on an altar of Valkyrie.
This will likely to be very time consuming without help from another player -
it's a long walk back to Scorn (the location of the only temple of Valkyrie) from most maps.
