This beautiful painting of the Norse Valkyrie Brunhilde by artist Ingrid Hardy will be our second promo card (P2) for this set.

These cards will also be extremely limited.
Norse Mythology – Brunhilde was shieldmaiden and a Valkyrie in Norse mythology. Brunhilde is a valkyrie and the daughter of Budli. She was ordered to decide a fight between two kings, Hjalmgunnar and Agnar, and knew that Odin preferred the older king, Hjalmgunnar, yet she decided the battle for Agnar. For this Odin condemned her to live the life of a mortal woman, and imprisoned her in a remote castle behind a wall of shields on top of mount Hindarfjall in the Alps, where she must sleep within a ring of fire until any man rescues and marries her. The hero Sigurd, heir to the clan of Völsung and slayer of the dragon Fafnir, entered the castle and awoke Brunhilde by removing her helmet and cutting off her chainmail armour.
