Norse Pantheon

The Pantheon of the Nordhanian people is most common on the continent Norheim, but also in other lands around the Mountains of Khazahk and on The Icelands.   The Norse Pantheon is one of the largest pantheons of all, including gods from many different Pantheons, as well as some other quasi-deities, that aren't even actual gods.


In times long passed, the Aesir, a young group of gods, rose up within the Norse Pantheon, a development which was seen with great disfavor from the Vanir, the older and well established group of gods within the Pantheon. This lead to a great battle between the Aesir and the Vanir, from which the Aesir finally emerged victorious. From this day on the Aesir and especially Wôtan ruled over Valhalla.   The Vanir still stay in Valhalla as well, but they have lost much of their influence there.

Mythology & Lore

The gods of the Norse Pantheon often symbolize values like Strength and Honor or serve as faces for the most common challenges the Northlanders have to face in their lives.   They are split into two major groups, the Aesir and the Vanir. The Vanir are the older group of gods, while the Aesir are more numerous and have gathered larger followings in recent times.   Most followers of the Pantheon, while leaning more towards one group or the other, generally worship both groups of gods, but they only ever accept Tyr or Wôtan as the true leader of the Pantheon, never both.


The Aesir are the younger, but more popular group of gods withing the norse pantheon. They often represent values like strength, war and fate. The are led by Wôtan, the Runefather.
