The Thunderlands of Valhalla are a mighty Titan Kingdom located in southeastern Europe within the region of Estalia, and controlling sections of Greece as well. Located in the massive heights of the mountains the Kingdom is not known in any real way by the humans below, but it is far more massive then any of the Kingdoms that it exists within. The Thunderlands of Valhalla is basically the Titan Kingdom on Earth in the same way that Mordor is the Chaos realm on Earth, and for this reason the Kingdom attempts to grow the Germanic people that it has spawned through the creation by their Titan Lord and King Odin the son of Zeus. The Thunderlands is the only place on Earth after the destruction of Olympus that allows for a mortal to enter the Magnificant city of Olympas, and the Titan controlled section of the Fade.

The thunderlands of Valhalla can only be entered peacefully by a German and if anyone other then a German were to attempt to enter the Thunderlands without permission the consequences would be extremely dangerous. Because of this the mortals that live within the Thunderlands are the only people that live there outside of the Titan Odin, and his spawn of Demi-Gods created with his wife of Freyja. The Germans of the Thunderlands have changed quite dramatically since they were originally brought into the Thunderlands by Odin, and have become a new offshoot of the Germans called the Vrykul. The Vrykul are significantly taller, and more muscular then normal humans, and have created a language completely their own along with a culture berift of their ancient Ostrogoth roots.

Odin is the son of Zeus and was originally a lesser Titan but his father would uplift both he and his brother Vendriel into a position of furthering his control over the Titans. Odin was sent along with his brother to Earth where they set up two massive cities in the lands of the Greeks. The city made by Odin was built on top of the largest mountain in Estalia and he would name the fortess city Valhalla. Inside Valhalla he built a society amongst the mountains and was the original founders of the Germanic tribe of the Ostrogoths of whome they would define themselves based on his ideology. The city made by his brother Vendriel was named Olympus and was created in the image of everything that their father Zeus loved, and for this Vendriel was made into the more powerful of the two brothers. In Valhalla Odin would create a city so vast and majestic that his father would grow impressed, which was one of the reasons that Vendriel begin to listen to the words of Slanaash of whome was attempting to get him to join with Chaos. In Valhalla his Kingdom of the Thunderlands would defend a mighty portal at the center of which would lead to the realm of Folkvangr where the mightiest of Germans enter when they die on the fields of Battle. In this way the Thunder lands of Valhalla became the center of the German culture even though most of the Germans would go on to worship other gods and only the Ostrogoth's would basically worship Odin.

Geography

The Thunderlands of Valhalla consists of two main parts, of which the first part is the actual Thunderlands, and the second part is the ruins of Mount Olympus.

Thunderlands

Valhalla Peak

The Thunderlands are the main home of the Thunderlands of Valhalla. The Thunderlands are built on the mountain range known to the Estalia people as the Stormpeaks because of how much thunder is present at the peaks of the mountain. The Thunderlands consists of hundreds of peaks all perched off the side of the main mountain range, with the tallest peak containing the capital city of Ulduar. The Storm Peaks have treacherous paths, powerful winds, jagged cliffs, and hungry monsters. They are also home to the storm giants, one of the oldest races in the world and the keepers of the titans' legacy. The two biggest dangers in the Storm Peaks aren’t necessarily its inhabitants. The wind is fierce and constant, and can easily tug someone off a cliff. One look at those paths it has cut through the cliffs and one realizes how deadly wind can be. The second danger is sunlight. The peaks are covered in ice and the light reflects from every angle. Up here the ice is everywhere. Wearing dark glasses is the only way to survive — otherwise a person is blinded every time he moves his head, and before long he will take a misstep and tumble off a cliff or down a ravine. The weather doesn’t help — it is either clear and sunny, with the nasty glare, or dark as night and pouring, with sheets of freezing rain, hail, or snow battering down and making every surface as slick as oil.

Olympus2

Olympus

The Mount Olympus civilization was once brilliant in its beauty, but under the rulership of the Chaos version of Velendria the mountain was changed in a very bad way. The Mountain became such a place of darkness that even the mountain turned a slight hewe of black. The Mountain of Olympus has one true way to the top and that is the staircase of God which is a massively long staircase built into the mountain by the ancient servents of Velendria. The Greeks of this land have on many occasions made expeditions to the top of the staircase but are always driven away by the elite Valykrie that defend the remaining ruins of the top.

History

Creation

Valhalla1

Odin is the son of Zeus and was originally a lesser Titan but his father would uplift both he and his brother Vendriel into a position of furthering his control over the Titans. Odin was sent along with his brother to Earth where they set up two massive cities in the lands of the Greeks. The city made by Odin was built on top of the largest mountain in Estalia and he would name the fortess city Valhalla. Inside Valhalla he built a society amongst the mountains and was the original founders of the Germanic tribe of the Ostrogoths of whome they would define themselves based on his ideology. The city made by his brother Vendriel was named Olympus and was created in the image of everything that their father Zeus loved, and for this Vendriel was made into the more powerful of the two brothers. In Valhalla Odin would create a city so vast and majestic that his father would grow impressed, which was one of the reasons that Vendriel begin to listen to the words of Slanaash of whome was attempting to get him to join with Chaos. In Valhalla his Kingdom of the Thunderlands would defend a mighty portal at the center of which would lead to the realm of Folkvangr where the mightiest of Germans enter when they die on the fields of Battle. In this way the Thunder lands of Valhalla became the center of the German culture even though most of the Germans would go on to worship other gods and only the Ostrogoth's would basically worship Odin.

Vendriel

Fall of Vendriel

As the forces of Chaos had begun to plan for the Titan Civil War they had made the efforts of attempting to corupt the two sons of Zeus as they both had portals within their cities which allowed for the movement into Olympas from the undefended center of the city. In Odin they saw little hope of coruption so they moved onto Vendriel who was jelous of his brother, and hateful towards his father giving Slanaash ample room to work his way into the soul of Vendriel. Vendriel would fall to Slanaash and give himself over to the service of Slanaash, and in this way he begin changing Olympus changed from the old version to a Chaos version where demons walked freely amongst the city. On Earth the two sons of Zeus would learn of this event and Odin would travel to Olympus with many Valkyrie and his wife Freyja in order to talk to his brother in the belief that they would go to the Fade and help their father in the war. When he arrived he was shocked to see the changed in Olympus. It had been some time since he'd been there and the once gleaming white city was now stained purple and the old gaurds, and people had been replaced by demons and creatures of nightmares. Odin would enter the throne room of Vendriel and demand to know what had happened and his brother told him that he had heard the call of Slanaash and it told him of the true meaning of life, and that the goals of the Titans were no longer his goals. Vendriel begged his brother to assist him as he was going to assail the Fade from within the mighty city of Olympas. Odin refused and a battle broke out between the two which only ended when Odin and his Valkyrie, along with Freyja escaped the city and made their way back to Valhalla.

Olympus1

The Battle for Olympus

Odin would engage in a massive Battle on Earth against his brother during the Titan Civil War after his brother was turned to the service of Chaos and attempted to invaded the World Edge Mountains using his armies in Olympus. Vendriel would be forced due to his poor military skills to fight a two front war with his main army fighting the forces of the Dwarves and their Pantheon in the north, while his other forces were slowly pushed back inch by inch by the forces of Valhalla. Finally the forces attacking the Dwarves were defeated and as they retreated back to Olympus they were caught between the avenging Dwarves and the forces of Valhalla and the were massacred in their thousands. Following this disaster Slanaash sent one of his brightest luitenents to the battle in the form of Helester who took control of the forces of Vendriel and begin to lead a skilled defence of the mountains of Olympus. As the Titan Civil War ended in victory for Chaos the leadership caste that had been built by Helester returned to the Fade so that they could recieve reinforcements to reengage their attack on the Dwarves and Valhalla. While they left Vendriel made a play to recontrol Olympus through the creation of a group of Olympians called the Vanir. The Vanir would be utterly loyal to him, and when Helester returned with a massive army he once again moved north and put Vedriel in command of the defence of his rear which should have been easy with the huge forces he had at his disposal. Instead of doing this Vendriel silently engaged Valhalla in battle, and would be destroyed on the steps of Valhalla by Odin and his commanders. With Vendriel defeated the forces of Valhalla pushed south and sacked Olympus putting it under their control, and it was in this moment that Helester realized he had failed to destroy the Dwarves and turned his forces around and split the army into two with his side attacking Valhalla, and a smaller force attacking Olympus. Helester was much reduced and was defeated and killed by the forces of Valhalla while his army attacking Olympus was also destroyed meaning the end of the attackers.

Demographics

The thunderlands of Valhalla can only be entered peacefully by a German and if anyone other then a German were to attempt to enter the Thunderlands without permission the consequences would be extremely dangerous. Because of this the mortals that live within the Thunderlands are the only people that live there outside of the Titan Odin, and his spawn of Demi-Gods created with his wife of Freyja. The Germans of the Thunderlands have changed quite dramatically since they were originally brought into the Thunderlands by Odin, and have become a new offshoot of the Germans called the Vrykul. The Vrykul are significantly taller, and more muscular then normal humans, and have created a language completely their own along with a culture berift of their ancient Ostrogoth roots.

Vrykul

Vrykul
Main Article : Vrykul

Vrykul (pronounced ['vraɪ.kʊl]) are a race of heavily Norse-themed half-giant warriors native to the Storm-peaks of Valhalla, located in southeastern Europe. Since their creation by Odin they have spread into Estalia where they have begun to take control of larger and larger sections of southern Estalia as well as parts of western Tilea. The Vrykul are devout worshippers of the Titans but mainly the Titan Odin, and have built an entire society around their love and devotion of Odin the Titan they believe to be God.

Once just normal Ostrogoths their long term proximity to Odin made him aware of some of the weakenesses of the German people so he begin to change them in many different ways. After centuries they now appear generally human but their massive size, and changed language makes them also appear very much alien. On one of the lower mountain peaks of the Thunderlands the Vrykul have created their own land called the Howling Fords where they inhabit their capital of Utgarde Keep. Following the creation of Utgarde Keep the Vrykul were uplifted once again by Odin who gave rise to Ymirron and made him the King of the Vrykul. Under his leadership the Vrykul would expand massively into Estalia, and northern Greece and along the way found large fortifications to hold control of their new lands. Because they attacked from the mountains the Kingdom of Estalia had no protection against this area and has been slow to react to this threat.

Ulduar

Ulduar Valhalla

Ulduar is the massive Fortress capital of the Thunderlands of Valhalla, and the seat of the Titan Odin the only Titan who makes his home on Earth. Ulduar contains the portal which leads to the Noble Titans fortress of Olympas within the Fade, which makes the fortress of extreme importance.

Inside, Ulduar is a profusion of tunnels and stairs and balconies. The entire place appears to be carved out of a massive cave, and many of the levels are natural ledges. It has the feeling, as if nature were improved upon rather than replaced or recreated. The surfaces are a strange mix of smooth and unaltered stone and ice, as when a master sculptor works in stone and lets the material’s natural texture add depth and beauty. It shows where the dwarves got their skill in stonework, but judging by Ulduar they're still a long way from matching their creators.
