Gudrun, the Völva is one of the characters in Dead In Vinland.

Description[ | ]

Keywords: Crazy – Grumpy – Granny

Gudrun is the Völva of the group. A Völva is a female shaman who can oversee the future and can make dark magic.

She’s the only member of the group who arrived on the island who is here willingly. She had seen what was happening to Eirik and his family, but she also sensed some “defenses” coming from the island. She KNEW she had to come to check out the place. However, she’s not sure how she ended up here, as she only remembers waking up on the beach after searching for the island for days.

Gudrun may seem old and useless, but she’s also a quick-witted woman, and a precious mystic during combat. What will her purpose be? Is she really seeing things related to the island, or is she just plain crazy?

Combat[ | ]

Gudrun is a "Mystic Healer". Mystics lack the damage of the other classes, but have buffs (Prayer to the gods) and debuffs (Uncanny Litany, Ancient Curse) they can utilize to give their party the advantage in combat.

Like Moira, Gudrun's "Healer" trait lowers how much injury your party receives after combat if they were wounded during the conflict.

As a Mystic, she has the following skills:

Trivia[ | ]

  • Gudrun is a Völva (you can also say vala, wala, spákona, or spækona). Völva are female shaman and seers in Norse religion. Völva had several skills, like Seydr (chamanism), spà (overseeing), and galdr (magic). They were very powerful, and legend has it that Odin himself called upon them to foretell his future.
  • Matthieu, the game’s director, let Jacques (the art director) choose between a beautiful young girl like Morrigan in Dragon Age, or an old hag.
