Feel the thunder of the onrushing hoof-beats.  Hear the clashing of swords against axes.  Smell the blood of the dying carried on the wind.  Feel the heaviness upon you.  Witness the carnage and the devastation.  Peer through the haze of burning huts and see one lone man responsible for this, this desecration.  Look deeply into his yellow eyes and know fear.  Realize that this will be your last earthly sight.  Shudder as you draw in your final breath and accept your fate.  None have stood before him and none have ever unseated him from his throne.  Kneel and pay your respects in his kingdom of gore.  You are in the presence of Ivar the Boneless.
<br /><br />
Ivar the Boneless was born during the early 800's and from an early age had the hallmarks of being a terrifying force on the battlefield, as well as the cruelty to conquer his foes.  He was the son of Ragnar Lodbrok, a great Viking Leader who claimed to have been directly descended from Odin.  Aside from his prowess in battle, he possessed an almost uncanny flexibility during combat which may have led to the "boneless" moniker- but his actual secret was far more nefarious.  As with many Norse Warriors, they were infamous for their ability to become almost indestructible in battle by entering a trance-like state and going berserk and filled with unquenchable blood-lust.  These "berserkers" were the most formidable opponents on the battlefield, as they were virtually unstoppable.  Berserkers were known to wear the pelts of animals into battle, disguising their true forms and drawing ferocity and
rage from the spirit of the animal that they wore.  This was not the case with Ivar.  Rather than wear the hide of the animal, Ivar the Boneless became the animal.  He was an extremely powerful shape-shifter and could transform himself into a wolf, a bear, an eagle, and any creature that he deemed necessary to destroy his enemies.
<br /><br />
There are tales that describe Ivar the Boneless receiving his supernatural abilities after marrying Frith HalfTroll- a powerful, beautiful shape-shifter and witch.  She gave him a gift- a medicine pouch that he wore around his neck.  This pouch contained herbs, gems, and mystic runes carved with ancient inscriptions that allowed him to call upon the ghosts of his ancestors and summon the spirits of the animal kingdom to draw power from them or to tranform into them.  It is also believed that the blood of his fallen enemies was used to enhance his shape-shifting abilities- the more blood, the greater and more terrible he became in battle.
<br /><br />
Although Ivar the Boneless vanished from history around the later part of the century, it is believed that it was some mysterious disease that ended his life- as he could not be bested in combat.  A burial mound was placed on the English Shore for Ivar the Boneless to guard the coast.  No enemy could invade that area successfully, so long as his remains
protected that region.  This held true for many years, until William the Conqueror violated Ivar the Boneless' resting place- only to discover that his body had not suffered any decay and was perfectly preserved.  William the Conqueror ordered a funeral pyre to be built, so that Ivar's body could be consumed by fire and put an end to his protective legacy.
<br /><br />
Stories told by seers and prophets, claim that the spirit of Ivar the Boneless escaped death by transforming himself into a great Serpent that coils itself around the base of the Tree of Life and deceives visitors and wisdom seekers who journey to there searching for knowledge.
<br /><br />
Imagine having the ability to shape-shift- to transform your being into that of an animal or maybe even a powerful sorcerer that is unstoppable in many aspects of life.  This piece will allow you to tap into your inner "Berserker" and conquer anything that stands in your way. <br /><br />

This Berserker will shape shift but not in the physical way,it is in the ability and the power type of magic. For instance to become the snake would make you travel astrally and feel,learn and bring back while you are there. It is said that the body found has transformed into an immortal and still walks the earth because he decided to,not because he has to. This ring your looking at is that of a Berserker that needs no blood and has no blood lust. Simply he is a powerful beast that has a very high intelligence allowing you to change into what would benefit you. Example,fly on the wall,how nice would that be in some situations? Bersek into a well known wizard and grant yourself power? That is the difference with this Berserker,you can decide and all is up to you. We could even say this is a revenge piece but we don't want to promote that. Use this responsibly.
