Temple of Uppsala
This is a MES National Storyteller's Office Wiki. Do not edit it without permission.
During the reign of the All-High, the Temple of Uppsala was the seat of Odin's faith and power. The temple, re-imagined, rebuilt, and expanded over the centuries came to resemble the Valhall itself in the imagination of the inhabitants. Those blessed to enter the temple were usually ghouls, at the least. They were joined by his loyal Einherjar, the huskarls, and his Walkuries for nightly revelry, feats of combat, and feasts of wild boar.
Rumor carried through the vampires of the northern lands that the centerpiece of Odin's table was the All-High's legendary Blood-horn. It was said that when the massive drinking horn was filled with mead, a single drop of the All-High's vitae would transform the mead into his blood. With the power of this artifact, the All-High was able to sustain himself and his mighty retinue without depleting all of the mortals of the surrounding territory.
In 1087 CE, after most of the surrounding area had converted to Christianity, the temple was attacked en masse and cleared of its inhabitants by sharp steel, unyielding faith, and unstoppable fire. The temple burned taking many of Odin's Walkaries to their Final Death. The All-High was not seen after that night, and his influence in the region was thought to have died with him.
