Viking or Scandinavian mythology comprises the beliefs, myths and legends of the indigenous pre-Christian religion of the Scandinavian people, including those who settled on Faroe Islands and Iceland, where most of the written sources for Norse mythology were assembled. Norse mythology is the best-preserved version of the older common Germanic paganism, which also includes the very closely related Anglo-Saxon mythology. Germanic mythology, in turn, developed from an earlier Indo-European mythology.
Norse mythology is a collection of beliefs and stories shared by Northern Germanic tribes. It had no one set of doctrinal beliefs. The mythology was orally transmitted in the form of poetry and modern knowledge about it is mainly based on the Eddas and other medieval texts written down during and after Christianization.
Some aspects of Norse mythology passed into Scandinavian folklore and have survived to modern day. Others have recently been reinvented or reconstructed as Germanic Neopaganism. The mythology also remains as an inspiration in literature (see Norse mythological influences on later literature) as well as on stage productions and movies.
ODIN: The Norse Biggy. ODIN is Father of the Gods, King of ASGARD, Ruler of the AESIR and the Lord of War, Death and Knowledge.
ASGARD: This is Norse God H.Q, where the AESIR live and rule.
AESIR: The Norse Top Gods, including ODIN, THOR, LOKI
Also known as DONAR: God of Thunder.
MJOLLNIR: THOR'S Hammer. Like THOR, it has a very hot head, and he has to wear iron gauntlets to handle it
NINE-WORLDS: The Nordics liked nines. So they have nine worlds. YGGDRASIL, the Tree of Life, has nine roots which feed or lead to different realms. Starting from the bottom up, theres:
1 : HELHEIM, HEL's Domain of the Dead
2 : NIFLHEIM, the frosty Realm of Ice
3 : JOTUNHEIM, Land of the Giants
4 : NIDAVELLIR, the Land of Dwarfs
5 : SVARTALFHEIM, the Domain of the Dark Elves
6 : MIDGARD, Middle-earth, our bit, the Realm of Mankind
7 : ALFHEIM, the Land of the Light Elves
8 : VANAHEIM, the World of the VANIR
9 : ASGARD, the World of the AESIR
essentially, norse mythology is just like a giant game of worshiped warcraft
