Celestial Elf's latest masterpiece focuses on Vikings, Long Ships, Nordic Mythology, and the afterlife.
It is a very well crafted video with high production values -- and, like all his work, tells a story on something important to the development of the culture and history of the British Isles.
Here is what he writes about this machinima:
Presented by Odin Allfather, this is the tale of the Death and Life of Ulfr Sigurdsson Viking and Northman of both Earth and Beyond.Ulfr has been a worthy Captain of many a Longship in his time and brought his crew safely through assorted dangers.

The Helmsman is given a fine send of on a Funeral ship and as he goes to the beyond realms and he finds the Rainbow Bridge within himself.
