Norse Mythology

“I find no comfort in the shade
Under the branch of the Great Ash.
I remember the mist
of our ancient past.
As I speak to you in the present,
My ancient eyes
see the terrible future.”Do you not see what I see?
Do you not hear
death approaching?”The mournful cry of Giallr-horn
shall shatter the peace
And shake the foundation of heaven.”Raise up your banner
And gather your noble company
from your great hall,
Father of the Slains.
For you shall go to your destiny.”No knowledge can save you,
And no magic will save you.
For you will end up in Fenrir’s belly,
While heaven and earth will burn
in Surt’s unholy fire.”

Doom of Odin,
from the Book of Heroes.


Norse Mythology is a strange world. It’s differed from other mythology, in that their characters and world, even in Asgard, are grave and solemn. This may all be due to the fact, even though the gods are immortal, they will be destroyed in the final battle between good and evil.

The pages devoted to Norse and Teutonic mythology, has been divided into three section:

The Asgard contains information of Norse and Teutonic deities, including the Aesir and Vanir, giants and monsters.
Valhalla contains information of Norse and German characters, particular heroes and heroines, rulers and dwarfs.
Norse Sagas contains Norse and Germanic stories of the Creation and Ragnarök, as well as the Völsunga Saga and the Nibelungenlied.
