A Message from our Jarl

Hail, brave souls of Asgard Alaska!

As the northern lights dance in the winter sky and the snow blankets our majestic lands, let us take a moment to reflect on the journey we have embarked upon together. This past year, like the sagas of old, has been filled with tales of perseverance. Growth, community, and the spirit of the Vikings guide us toward making our dream a reality. I hope this message finds you well.

In the spirit of growth and exploration that our Viking ancestors held dear, this year has also brought significant advancements to our digital longship. We’ve upgraded our web server to better navigate the digital seas. This ensures a swifter and more robust online experience for all. The enhancement has allowed us to expand our reach. This lets us connect with more kindred spirits across the globe who share our passion for Viking heritage.

A highlight of our digital saga has been the launch of the Viking Name Generator tool. It has quickly become a favorite among our global community, allowing everyone to discover their own Viking identity. The tool’s popularity is a testament to the universal appeal of our rich history and culture. We invite you to try it, if you haven’t already, and share your Viking name with friends and kin far and wide.

Since Yuletide is a time when the warmth of kinship triumphs over the cold of winter, I extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you. Your support, like the sturdy shield in battle, has been our strength. Together, we have forged ahead in our quest to build not just a museum, but a realm where the legacy of our ancestors thrives, where history breathes, and where the old ways are honored amidst the wild beauty of Alaska.

As we look towards the coming year, filled with promise and new adventures, I gently call upon your continued support. In the spirit of generosity that defines this season, any contribution, big or small, helps us keep the longships sailing smoothly towards our shared dream. Your donations ensure that Asgard Alaska remains a beacon of learning, discovery, and the celebration of our rich Viking heritage. Our message remains one worthy of sharing.

May the warmth of hearth and heart be with you and your kin this season. Together, let us continue to weave a saga worthy of the halls of Valhalla.
