The big carousing hall in the sky.

After anything bigger than a minor skirmish, Valkyries run a shuttle-service to convey the souls of dead warriors who have fallen in battle - plus stray Teachers such as Ronald Saveloy who throw their lot in with barbarians - to this extremely desirable Afterlife.

Valhalla offers all-day fighting, all-night feasting and retains an option on a third F (to make it work in a way which big tough macho warriors would not find a complete surprise: is this also a possible postmortem destination for Seamstresses?) and recently has started to offer basic classes in literacy, personal hygiene, table manners, and elementary social skills.


Its Roundworld counterpart is Valhalla, which is a majestic, enormous hall located in Asgard, ruled over by the god Odin. Chosen by Odin, half of those that die in combat travel to Valhalla upon death, led by valkyries, while the other half go to the goddess Freyja's field Fólkvangr.
