Nevermind the Viking apocalypse that might be taking place as we speak, will you survive the Ragnarok parties breaking out everywhere?
The vikings are viking everywhere you look, preparing for the battle of the gods. As everyone knows there’s practically nothing more dangerous than a gang of ragnarocking Vikings This Week In Survival we look into that situation and more, posting some survivor links and updates below:
How to Survive A Viking Viking
1. Ask him about his helmet.
In particular say something like, where are the horns? Vikings HATE this particular Hollywood myth. No real self-respecting Viking would ever wear a helmet with horns except to make fun of a tourist, a fact that every Viking is compelled to explain in detail. His explanation will buy you time.*
*How much time depends on how long-winded the Viking you face. Anywhere from seconds to aeons. Whatever the case, make it count because once he’s done explaining he’s going to be viking even harder than ever.
2. Locate the world tree known as Yggdrasil.
In addition to the dragon, several nymphs and wise squirrel who call this tree home, the Viking gods meet under this tree on a daily basis making this the best place to spend Ragnarok. Not only will it save you from a viking viking on you, but it gives you front row seats to all the best apocalyptic action as it unfolds. Or doesn’t, as the case may be. You can also grab a root portal here to one of eight other dimensions that won’t be ending tonight.
3. Tell him you found a missing game piece.
The Viking gods are notoriously prone to losing their game pieces. Some call this cheating, but never to their faces. Point is, at Ragnarok, it is said that these gold pieces will be found. If you know the location of one, what Viking could resist letting you live – at least long enough to find out that you’re lying?
4. This question: What did Odin say to his son before preparing his funeral pyre?
Just memorize it. If you say this, the Viking will think you are Odin and worship you instead of killing you, a much better situation. Even if you don’t know the answer. Hey it worked for Odin.
