RIP Lunatess

Christine "Lunatess" Anderson
March 8, 1976 - April 9, 2020

If you've ever played on Firiona Vie, it's likely that you've encountered one of the nicest people the sever had to offer. Some of you may know her as Gala, a Magician during the old <Fire and Fury> days, some of you may know her as Lunatess, a Druid of <Valhallah>, and some of you may know her as Christy. Regardless, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of one of our own, Christine "Lunatess" Anderson.

Lunatess was battling cancer for the last few years of her life, and ultimately "lost" her battle on April 9, 2020. I can't quite come to terms with using the word "lost," because had you interacted with Luna in any way, you'd never know she was fighting such a horrible disease. Over the course of a couple years and throughout several recurrences, she continued to login, play the game she enjoyed, and presented her best self to everyone she encountered.

Alongside many other guild members, I feel very lucky to have shared a final message to her before she passed. In that message, I wrote "Whether you like it or not, I'm giving you my word that you'll be forever memorialized in Valhallah history. You always showed up, put out, and did exactly what was needed, and what I'll never forget is that you did all of that with a great attitude, a playful spirit, and a warm heart -- regardless of how tough the times were for you. You should know me well enough to know that I'm always looking for sources of motivation when I need to dig deep, and how you presented yourself to this guild despite the hell you've been through these past few years will forever put you down in my book as an absolute warrior." Although it may have taken her life in the end, it's for all of these reasons that cancer did NOT win.

In closing, anyone wishing to extend their condolences to Christy's family can do so on the virtual guest book for her obituary
located here. Additionally, her family has set up a Go Fund Me campaign to help with countless medical bills and the cost of interment. Although we understand that times are tough for everyone at this point in time, we cannot stress enough that every little bit helps.

Rest peacefully, Luna. Until Valhalla...

Happy New Year!

And just like that, 2019 is gone! We hope everyone had a happy, safe, and fun-filled holiday season!

Unfortunately, the typical Valhallah Christmas Giveaway continued to be pushed back further and further. Everyone's schedules were insanely busy, and the Christmas giveaway slowly became the New Years Giveaway. If you took part in the fun, we would like to extend a sincere thanks to everyone that participated! There wasn't nearly as much loot as in 2019, but unfortunately that's the combined effect of the Luck stat and GMM providing very little rot loot. We still hope that everyone enjoyed nonetheless! If you won something (or if you'd just like to look at the spreadsheet!), there is a log of everything available
at this link. Please contact any member of leadership if something is incorrect.

As always, we are recruiting for Torment of Velious as raiding content becomes available very soon!

Valhallah Is Recruiting!


You know we haven't had an update in a ridiculously long time when even I start to get sick of seeing the same post!

Anyway, EverQuest: Torment of Velious launches on Wednesday, December 18! If you'd like to experience everything the expansion has to offer, it just so happens that we have a few openings on the Valhallah roster! Priority consideration will be given to Wizards, Magicians, and Shamans, and we will also be seeking applications from highly-skilled Rogues, Monks, and Rangers. We might even be able to squeeze in some exceptional Warriors and Shadow Knights, too! Beta and the farming of The Burning Lands are in full swing, so don't miss out!

Also, a little birdie told me that there could be another Valhallah Christmas Giveaway this year! Unfortunately we won't have nearly as huge of a loot pool as we did last year thanks to luck, but we do have at least a growing handful of items that could add some holiday cheer to Norrath! Stay tuned for updates!

Update: It has been brought to our attention that it's no longer Christmas. Oops.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Now that we have your attention, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Valhallah!

Thanks to everyone that participated in the giveaway! It wasn't absolutely perfect in every way, but nothing ever is and I'm confident in saying that the net result was overly positive. We hope everyone had as much fun participating as we did hosting! Also, thanks to the Valhallah members that threw in on the fun with independent prizes of their own!

Since we are human(!) and do make mistakes(!), I'm going to give everyone a look at the spreadsheet that we used to keep track of everything:

If you're listed as winning something and haven't received your item via parcel, please get in touch with firiona.Gotcharms, Zlauk, Bleve, Huggiebare, Lunatess, Colypso, Mallakhi, and/or Slivern (or just post in this thread!). We'll reference the logs and look into it as best we can. There was a minor error that happened already, so anything is possible! Hopefully that provides a look at why we couldn't answer every single tell (but still tried our best nonetheless!), as we were incredibly busy trying to keep ourselves "on task" while still having a good time with it all!

With that we'll say... Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
