Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: Gorms are very obvious {{Franchise/Alien}} expies: They are extremely fast, have acid blood and they can implant you with an embryo which will a short time later explode out of your chest with lethal consequences.

Added DiffLines:

* TimedMission: From the very start of the game, time is gradually ticking away towards the final battle of the gods... The time limit is reasonably lenient, given that you do not need to complete every single goal for the gods to win.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Try picking up a dead cockatrice. You die. But if you're wearing gauntlets, you can! And if you wield the corpse as a weapon, it will turn anything else to stone!

* LostForever: There's nothing stopping you from doing something stupid with one of the quest artifacts and thus being unable to deliver it to its rightful owner during Ragnarok. However, Balder is the easiest to lose. If you want to save him, you need to trap Thokk's soul in the appropriate ring, [[spoiler: and then take that ring off, never let it absorb another soul, and keep it safe until it's time to deliver it to Hela.]]

The game can be downloaded [[http://www.download-central.ws/DOS/Games/R/Ragnarok/ here]], though you may also need to download an MS-DOS emulator such as {{Dosbox}} to get it to run.

* CombinatorialExplosion: What can happen if you randomly mix potions. Rather bizarrely this can occur if you mix two of the same types of potion, leading to odd scenarios where adding [[MadeOfExplodium two vials of water together]] can cause an explosion strong enough to kill you.

''Ragnarok'' (also known as ''Valhalla'', not related to the earlier 8 bit game ''VideoGame/{{Valhalla}}) is a freeware {{Roguelike}} DOS game heavily based around Myth/NorseMythology, and is notable for being one of the first Roguelikes to use graphical tiles rather than text-based graphics. Like ''VideoGame/NetHack'', it has an item-heavy focus, though luck still plays an important role, especially early on in the game. How much luck comes into things will also depend partly on your playing style.

Added DiffLines:

* KillAllHumans: It's possible to read a scroll of extinction targeting "humans." Rangers and traders can't be extincted, though. (It's also advisable to be polymorphed into something nonhuman if you're going to do this.)

* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence:
** You if you help the gods win the battle of Ragnarok.
** You also do this ''literally'' whenever you use the power of dimension travel, as the Crossroads are stated to be located above the normal planes of existence.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: Mimming, Gungnir and Mjollnir are designed for the gods to use, not you. You ''can'' use them if your strength and experience level are high enough, but by the time you both have the weapons in question and the necessary might to wield them, you'll probably have Hela's Scythe, which is more powerful than any of them in your hands.
