Asgard, The Final Frontier

Welcome to Asgard

Everyone has that friend who analyzes everything and mine asked me the other day why I chose Norse mythology as a plot device. According to him,  Greek or Roman mythology would have been a better choice because they are more popular. I responded with ‘that’s exactly why I chose what I did.’

In college, I took a mythology class for fun and the professor was so passionate about the Greeks. He spoke at length for hours, but when we switched to Norse, his enthusiasm left. I couldn’t understand why. The characters were awesome; Odin, Thor, Loki,  etc, all living life for one moment. Unfortunately, that moment was Ragnarok but it didn’t matter to them. Their realm of Asgard was filled with intrigue and deception. Everyone had their own agenda and all be damned if you got in their way. That story needed to be brought to the masses, and that’s what I’m trying to do.

I have researched endlessly about my subject and could go on and on with the details. However, I ask you to go pick up a book about the Norse. Give them a chance to tell you their story. My friend might be right, Greek mythology is probably more popular but Norse mythology will always be more epic.
