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.

Added DiffLines:

* LordBritishPostulate: You cannot kill the gods, either the good ones or the evil ones; even coming ''near'' the evil ones will get you annihilated. This doesn't apply to Hela or Vidur, though; just to the gods and giants who will fight at Vigrid. (It does apply to Jormungandr on the ocean, but that's because he's the BorderPatrol.]]
* 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.]]

* WaferThinMint: Averted; even when full you can eat as much as you want. Unless you eat something poisonous, or are [[ChestBurster impregnated by a gorm]].
