A "Dungeons and Dragons" view of Valkyries, as though they were part of a role-playing game
Handmaidens of Battle, Choosers of the Slain
There is no cult of the valkyries. Those seeking Valhalla or Sessrumnir after death belong to cults of Odin or Freya. Instead, the valkyries serve the Asgardian pantheon in general. All valkyries are female.
Valkyrie: Female Quasi-deity (divine rank 0);
HD 20d8+140; hp 230; Init +19; Spd 60 ft.;
AC 35 (touch 16, flat-footed 29);
Atk +30/+25/+20/+15 melee (1d8+9/19-20/×3, heavy lance or 1d6+9/19-20/×3, halfspear or 1d8+9/18–20, longsword); SA Smite evil, turn undead 10/day;

ALignment: Lawful Good;
SV Fort +19, Ref +29, Will +19; Str 28, Dex 40, Con 25, Int 24, Wis 24, Cha 24
Skills and Feats:
Smite Evil (Su): Once per day a valkyrie may attempt to smite evil with one normal melee attack. She gets +7 on her attack roll and deals 20 extra points of damage. Smiting a creature that is not evil has no effect but uses the ability for that day.
Turn Undead (Su): A valkyrie turns undead as a cleric of two levels lower would.
Aura of Courage (Su): A valkyrie is immune to fear, magical or otherwise. Allies within 10 feet of her gain a +4 morale bonus on saving throws against fear effects.
Detect Evil (Sp): The valkyrie can use detect evil at will as the spell.
Divine Grace: The valkyrie applies her Charisma bonus to all saving throws. (This modifier is already figured into the statistics given above.)
Divine Health: A valkyrie is immune to all diseases, including magical diseases such as mummy rot and lycanthropy.
Empathic Link (Su): The valkyrie can communicate telepathically with the mount at a distance of up to one mile. The valkyrie has the same connection to an item or a place that the mount does.
Pegasus Mount: This creature grants its master empathic link and share spells.
Lay on Hands (Sp): A valkyrie can heal wounds by touch as a standard action. Each day she can cure 140 hit points. The valkyrie can cure herself and can divide the curing among multiple recipients. She doesn’t have to use it all at once.
Remove Disease (Sp): A valkyrie can remove disease, as the spell, six times per week.
Share Spells: A valkyrie may have any spell she casts on herself also affect her mount if the latter is within 5 feet at the time. The valkyrie may also cast a spell with a target of “You” on her mount.
Paladin Spells/Day: 5/5/5/4; base DC = 17 + spell level.
