About Vikings on Shrooms (VoS)

Vikings on Shrooms (stylised VoS) is a metagaming community primarily consisting of Scandinavian and western European members whom around 300 are active.

We generally seek mature players with a dank (and preferably) politicly incorrect sense of humour.

Many of us are 25+ years of age, and so we don’t suggest you coming here unless you are 18, as our general atmosphere is NSFW.

We have members of both sexes, and even more genders. (Often resulting in some hilarious discussions)

A common Viking on Shrooms

Why “Vikings on Shrooms?”

Haven’t you ever wondered why  Mario in Super Mario loves shrooms? We honestly have no idea about Mario’s messed up food habits, but we do know that the Vikings of the ancient world used Amanita Muscaria in order to unlock the hidden berserker mode. We honour their memory by naming ourselves after their actions – also VoS simply sound cool as hell.

As a wise Viking once said: “Wits or GTFO!”

So is everyone welcome?

You’re more than welcome to join us if you have the capacity to use common sense and respect those around you, and sacrifice you all of your free time of course. In some competitive games we might have certain requirements, but you can still join the community.

Where are the forums?!

This is the future, mate, there are no forums. Use the discord.

Discord, teamspeak, forums… what am I supposed to use?!

Information is distributed in the following priority.

  1. Website
  2. Discord
  3. All other media

Voice programs such as Team speak, Mumble and Spectrum are all used as a complement to the discord and the website, where the most important information are distributed.

How did VoS come to be?

VoS birth was a violent and mythic tale worthy of legends… so stay a while and listen!

History

Vikings on Shrooms as a community has it’s roots in the Guild wars 2 community Three Crowns, which was the official Swedish Guild.

Following some internal drama (and general boredom with the game) many members wanted to continue playing together outside GW2. This, however, was not encouraged by the TC administration, and so three pioneers created a new metagame community that would later be named Vikings on Shrooms – hinting at its Swedish origin topped with a politically incorrect, humorus and open minded atmosphere.

Following the exodus, Three Crowns was officially disbanded, and replaced with Ruthless.

Over the years VoS has had over 700 registered members, whom around 100 are active today.

We are currently focused on Black Desert Online (EU) but also play other games – such as Ark, League of Legends and DayZ – and we are very excited for Star citizen.

Community Rules

More specific rules may apply to specific games, but these always go for the entire community.

  • Please use TeamSpeak or Discord as much as you can. It’s great for bonding with the community, and it helps tremendously in-game.
  • If you have a problem with another Viking, take it up with one of our admins; don’t make troubles for others because you can’t keep it together.
  • We require you to speak fluent English if you were to join us in the war against everyone. Since communication is the key to success!
  • Don’t treat people like you want to be treated. Who knows what kind of fucked up mental state you’re in – instead treat them with decency and common respect.
  • If someone chooses to ignore these simple guidelines you will be punished and sent to Nifelheim!

Founders

Martin “Mishee” Jacobsson

Shroom Cook

Tracing his ancestry line back to the beginning, when Vikings were still hunting dinosaurs, Mishee is among the craziest Vikings on shrooms you can find. He is also the community manager, organizing the discord and website. If you got questions about the community, you might just want to give him a shout. Make sure to bring shrooms if you do. Lots of shrooms.

Youssef “Draug” Ghazala

Propaganda Minister

Draug is the art director of VoS, and also responsible for the propaganda department. Draug and Kamikaze were neighbours for 20 years, working on different projects, and although they aren’t neighbours anymore, both still reside in Stockholm. If you have ideas or complaints about the looks of VoS, or if you want to participate in propaganda campaigns, you should contact him.

Specialists

Deathnine

Field Marshall

Whenever operational command has a problem, they send D9. Need a person killed in a game? Send D9. Need an army to take down an enemy guild? Send D9. Born and raised in Stockholm, and still, none of us has ever met him. In truth, we’re still not sure if the handsome devil in this picture is actually him.

Quality assurance

Benzo

Linguist

Benzo has always had a calming effect on those around her, hence her nickname. Both a flower girl and a language nerd; at VoS she’s responsible for double-checking the rhetoric of the propaganda department, that is when she’s not driving around in a spaceship or ganking noobs in Bloodborne.

Balboa

Propaganda director

Balboa used to be a factotum for Roy Anderson, working with everything from costume design to concept art, until she decided it was time to Git Gud herself. As an aspiring director/scriptwriter, she usually directs propaganda movies that she often stars in herself. If you’re curious about her work, you can find it here.

Contact us

We used to have a contact field here, but since this is the future and not the nineties we removed it.
No, we wont give you our mail address, if you want to contact us, use the discord. <3
