Half man, half wolf, he must trace his past and save his sister???
While working on "Walsung with Bears" I happened across the spoilers for a video game of the Ring cycle. Yes, a video game based on the Opera. Well, loosely based, I suppose. How loosely? Well, you can play one of four characters. Loge and Alberich seem reasonable, but you can also play as these two:
  • Brunnhilde, the Walkyrie. Fleeing the wrath of her father because she loves Loge so much, the Walkyrie must fight a terrible monster in Necropolis. Her special ability is Magic Lance which could throw lightning bolts.
  • Siegmund and the Enchanted Forest. Half man, half wolf, he must trace his past and save his sister. His special ability is Wolf instinct that could be used to see at night and to reveal hidden object in the dark.

Mreh? She's in love with Loki!?! Well, I always did like him better than the Walsungs, anyway.

And 'Hilde doesn't do much in the Opera aside from metaphorically redeem humanity--having her fight a giant Necropolis Monster is way cooler!
