This mod adds a new Valkyrie class which includes 20 new skills. It is themed around the Norse pantheon and a valkyrie's duty as 'chooser of the slain'. They make good support characters, with a mix of buffs and damage, tied primarily to the Warrior ability track. 

Though valkyries are female in the mythology, these skills (and the starting class) can easily be played by a male Viking-type charcter. I've also taken some liberties with the theme (in that Valkyries are meant to fight against Ragnarok rather than causing it, etc). Hopefully you can enjoy the spirit of it without taking the details too literally!

Skills:

Starter:
Shining Spear - (Projectile) Heave a spear at your enemy, possibly inflicting bleeding or crippling and dealing physical damage.
Protector - (Target) Protect the fallen by partially healing them and granting fleeting physical immunity.
Viking Fury - (Shout) Spin in a circular motion, hitting all of your enemies within range.

Level 1:
Skyfall - Jump to an enemy, hitting them once with all of your might.

Level 4:
Winged Glory - (Shout) Spread your wings to descend from the sky to earth to join the fray, blinding foes with your brightness for 1 turn. Clears crippled and slowed statuses.
War Cry - (Shout) Utter a bloodcurdling scream; granting yourself adrenaline, and possibly terrifying or deafening enemies within [2]. Gives allies a constitution boost.
Holy Charge - (Rush) Charge forward, hitting all enemies in your path and setting them aflame.
Shieldwall - (Shout) Restore physical armor and deflect projectiles aimed at you or your allies for 3 turns. Help knocked down allies to their feet. There is strength in numbers when you work together.

Level 8:
Jotunn Stance - (Shout) Grant yourself icy shielding like the frost giants, increasing your water and physical resistances at the cost of speed. Give your allies a magical armor boost and possibly freeze your enemies within range. Removes burning, wet and shocked statuses.
Hel's Dominion - (Target) As chooser of the slain, you can sentence this soul to eternal torment in Hel. Curse them for two turns, put necrofire at their feet and cause damage.
Odin's Envoy - (MultiStrike) Clear your mind, inspired by the Allfather's wisdom, and hit multiple targets (maximum 4) dealing damage to each with a chance of crippling them.
Freyja's Favor - (Target) The goddess Freyja bestows increased dodging, speed and initiative for three turns with a gift of her feathered cloak. Also cures stunned or mad statuses, and provides one turn of invisibility.

Level 12:
Einherjar - (Shout) Grant your heroic allies improved damage, armor, constitution and chance to hit. Also clears crippled, cursed, decaying and blind; and prevents being charmed.
Mjolnir - (Cone) Borrow Thor's hammer Mjölnir and smash it into the ground, leaving electrified water in its wake and knocking down or shocking your enemies.
Fateweaver - (Target) The Norns sit under Yggdrasil, the World Tree, and control the fates of men. Use your divination powers to give yourself or an ally a free turn as well as a source point.
Cupbearer - (Rain) Rain horns of mead down onto the field of battle to begin celebratory revels, refreshing your allies (with their superior tolerance) but making your enemies drunk.

Level 16:
Harbinger of Doom - (Target) Mark an enemy for death, and help them along their way with a single, powerful hit. Lower their chance to hit, physical resistances and dodging.
Ragnarok - (Quake) The earth rumbles and catches fire as Loki's children burst through to battle the old gods. You and your allies are granted fire immunity, while your enemies are knocked down and burned.
Visions of Valhalla - (Shout) Bless all of your allies within range and grant clear-minded status.
Wrath of Asgard - (Storm) Your enemies have angered the gods, and they will rain down their anger in the form of water, ice, rock and lightning.


Starter Valkyrie Class

If you select the Valkyrie class at Character Creation, you'll start with the game assuming a spear weapon. You will see your character with wings in the Character Creation screen, for thematic purposes, but you will not start out with wings. The starting skills are listed above. The class comes with preset Opportunist talent, 1 point each in Loremaster and Luck, and 1 point each in Wits, Strength and Finesse, but those are all changeable. The default skillset is Warrior, Water and Leadership - you can change if you want, but removing Warrior will disable the starter skills.


Trader

The trader's name is Brenna, and she has blond hair and blue clothing.
You'll find her in the following locations:

1) Inside Fort Joy, near the right side of the shrine of Lucian (where you originally find Lohse)
2) Just inside the gates of Driftwood, across the path from my Succubus trader
3) Lady Vengeance deck 2, outside the bunk room
4) Arx town square to the right of the Town Crier girl

Skillbooks can also be found in a barrel near the Braccus statue on the beach outside Fort Joy.
