Skyrim Fans and Enthusiasts

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 19, 2013, 12:07 AM


If you play games and RPG's, then you have heard of and played Skyrim. There are many famous actors lending their voice to the game. Since Skyrim is heavily influenced by Nordic mythology, tradition, and culture, I would like to point out a new show by History Channel that tells a story about 9th century Vikings. 

Not only is this show good inspiration for playing and writing for Skyrim, but the actor Vladimir Kulich, who does the voice of Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak, guest stars in the first four episodes, as Eric.

I recommend watching this show, it will change your mind about what has been believed about Vikings and their culture. I know it has inspired me to put more of a flavor of this complex culture into my Dragon's Bane story. 

You can watch the first four episodes on Hulu: www.hulu.com/vikings

I love Gabriel Byrne! I have watched him for a long time and haven't been disappointed in any of his stuff. They got a good cast for the show and that is what is making it compelling.

I've been watching it every Sunday on the History Channel. I think when I saw Vladimir Kulich's name in the credits I yelled something along the lines of "OMG- THAT'S ULFRIC STORMCLOAK!"

yeah, when I first saw him, I heard that voice and was like "hey!". He is done up with the long hair and beard, I almost didn't recognize him.
