About Velda the Awesomest Viking

Velda is a tiny warrior with a BIG axe and a BIGGER attitude.

Some people don’t think girls can be proper Vikings. Velda doesn’t agree!

Velda must complete an epic quest to the danger-filled Islands of Deadly Doom in order to save the captured crew of legendary longship The Valkyrie.

There’s just one problem, well, more than one actually – she doesn’t have a ship, a crew, or a clue how to get there…

Join Velda as she makes some unlikely new friends and takes on terrifying tasks, all while proving she’s the awesomest Viking around!
