    Concept: Land Kraken
    The Land Kraken, also called The Third eye of Odin, is an enslaved beast watching over the gates of Valhalla. It is said that come Ragnarok, the beast will tear free of the magic that binds it, and be set loose upon the Aesir it once protected; and when the battle is done descend into the oceans of Midgard, taking the place of Jormungand as Lord of the deeps.

    Concept: Harpeagle

    Harpeagles are considered one of odin's most treasured pets. These vile and ferocious creatures are born killers. Being born blind, they have to rely on their other senses to survive. Throughout life these creatures have no sight, so the parents themselves will literally leave the nest once the eggs are laid. Approximately 6-8 eggs are laid, but due to lack of any kind of food or any kind of parenting, the stronger chicks will sooner or later attack, kill and eat the smaller and weaker of their siblings, finally by the time they are strong enough to leave the nest there will only be one surviver, and its these survivors which are then reared and used as the gate keepers of Valhalla. But its not just their ferocity and survival instincts that Harpeagles are admired for, due to their blindness, and their other senses being far stonger than normal creatures they don't see the facade that most of us mere mortals see in one another, but instead they sense something deeper, the true worth of man. So only those who are a worthy and a true warrior may enter Valhalla.

    Concept: Barricade
    The Barricade was created when Odin needed a gatekeeper to prevent people on Midgard from entering Valhalla; without first earning the right in battle. It is a combination of one drop of the all-fathers blood, the skeletal remains of the most powerful beasts on Midgard, and a handful of soil to keep the beast tethered to the realm.

    Concept: The Golem of Valhalla
    The Golem of Valhalla is one of Odins strongest creations. Forged from the blood and earth of fallen warriors, this golem is a fearsom demon to behold. Infused with magic and entrusted as the gatekeeper of Valhalla, the golem itself is a door to Valhalla. A traveling demon door that journeys underground collecting the fallen and strong enough to keep out the unworthy.

    Note: I posted before, It didnt post I dont know if it had an error but if it shows up as a double post, please delete the other post and keep this one. Thanks.

    Concept: Agmundr

    sleeping down in the earth - only awakes when lost living or the dead arrives.

    Concept: The Baulith

    This immense creature was once considered an enemy of Asgard, having been born from the same kin as trolls and giants. However it was defeated by Odin and now serves as the Gate keeper to the hall of the gods. Towering over any who would challenge it, only the most worthy may pass.

    Concept: Smárak - Rakklæti Varðhundr
    Rakklæti Varðhundr literally translates as "courage watchdog". Smárak has no eyes or ears, but senses the souls of men. If a man's soul is pure and courageous he will enter into the realm of Valhalla. Those not worthy, or pure of heart will be blocked by Smárak. The gate to Valhalla is vast but narrow, to stop Smárak and other monsters from entering the great hall.

    Concept: Gudramulv Guardian
    Brute strength, raw power. These words are minor in comparison to the terror of Valhalla who wards off those who do not belong in its hallowed halls. Created as a personal bodyguard for and by Odin himself, The Gudramulv Guardian was found to be better suited for watching over Valhalla.
