Fortnite’s Storyline Is Following the Norse Mythology of Ragnarok

Ever since season 5, the idea of Fortnite following the Norse Mythology of Ragnarok has been a possibility hence the tier 100 outfit named Ragnarok.

The story of Ragnarok didn’t begin until the end of season 6 in which we saw the appearance of the iceberg out in the ocean. Upon the iceberg colliding with the island, the Ice King summoned an Ice Storm upon the island, this being Fimbulwinter (a winter that lasts three normal winters without any summer in between).

Here’s where things get a little confusing. The following events take place out of order in relation to the Norse mythology of Ragnarok. In the mythology, The monstrous wolf Fenrir and Jormungand, a sea serpent, are set free. Following this, Loki, the traitor of the gods, breaks free from the chains that the Gods have locked him in. Fenrir/Jormungand resembles the monster from Polar Peak, and Loki resembles the Fire King/Prisoner.

Anyways, back to Season 7. It can be deduced that the Fire King and Ice King had a “falling ou

For those who got into Norse mythology thanks to God of War, it looks like From Software and George RR Martin are working together on a Norse inspired, open-world RPG

God of War really made me fall in love with the whole Norse mythos and I feel like it is very under represented in the gaming industry. That being said, I think thats about to change thanks to how great God of War was and the spotlight it put on Norse Mythology. The Dark Souls trilogy were always a favorite series of mine and if the rumors are true, i can’t wait to see the finished product which will no doubt be possible in part due to the success of God of War

What’s up with JRPG’s fondness for norse/germanic mythology?

I had this epiphany while I was walking around this morning,

Anyway, Final Fantasy has characters such as Fenrir, Odin, Frejia (spelling?).

Bravely Default has the valkyrie class (which I used more than anything else)

There is that cute game Odin’s Sphere, which unfortunately I never got a good hang of.

Then valkyria chronicles.

Oh, and in the .hack series, there’s something called Wotan’s Spear, but I can’t recall the specifics.

We see this in animation too: Ponyo’s original name is Brunhilde, just to name one.

Where do you think the love for norse myths comes from? I know greek and celtic lore gets some representation too but norse lore is overwhelming in this area 🙂

TIL: Hugin and Muninn are two divine Ravens from Norse Mythology.

I had literally no idea until I caught an injured crow today. I had hoped that it was just an injured wing but my friend (bird expert) stopped by and immediately discovered internal bleeding. Unfortunately we had to put it down but afterwards she suggested we name it either hugin and muninn and it all came together in one glorious burst of realization.

That is all reddit, carry on.

Literature recommendations for getting into norse mythology

So, well I’m in search for a book that teaches me about the norse mythology. Do you have recommendations here?

At first there seems to be the Edda, although there are 2 versions of it. Is this the most complete collection of the myth or is there even more then? Is this even suitable for a start or is it rather a hard and dry read?

Then there would be “Norse Mythology” by Neil Gaiman. Seems to be easier literature than the Edda itself, but is it complete and faithful to the source material?

Or are there other books, even better suited?

Runes bieng much more powerful & useful in that part of the world trolls & giants bieng much more intelligent . The norse gods either bieng real as deities or wizards that muggles just worshipped as gods. Dwarves bieng the main bankers & creating wepons akin to godrics sword.

The beast & monsters would be intresting as well as other races. Light & dark elves. The world serpent actually bieng real. Giant wolf’s

Fantasy books on Norse mythology?

In terms of Icelandic/Norse mythology, What are Titania and Oberon(Queen and King of the Fae respectively) considered as? Are they extremely powerful powerful deitys? Or are they on the weaker side? Are they even really dietys at all?

I’m writing(more really in the process of ideas) for a Modern Fantasy book about multiple mythos and Gods of different pantheons, ..
where should Titania and Oberon be on a “Power Scale”? Considering that I’m putting in pantheons such as Norse, Japanese, Chinese, Greek, Egyptian, Jeudo-Christan(and many more). I know this is a lot, I’m trying to learn a lot about mythologies and I would like some help on thisI couldn’t find much about Titania and Oberon as a whole(considering they are mostly from Shakespeare).

Thor’s age in Avengers: Infinity War is a reference to the fact that Thor was first mentioned in Norse Mythology in 523 AD, about 1500 years before Infinity War came out (2018).

(MANGA SPOILERS) Further reflections on Norse mythology

I made a post a while back on how I thought Norse Mythology could affect the story going forward and here are some further recent thoughts:

  • Oda confirmed that an eyepatch wielding pirate will eventually appear in OP’s final stages, and I’m calling that like others believe, it will be Luffy in his depiction of inverse-or-not Odin. Odin himself sacrificed an eye for further insight and glory, as Luffy tried to do the very first chapter. Most likely timeframe for this is during or immediately following Luffy’s return of the Straw Hat to Shanks, so as to maintain a distinct epithet, becoming One-eyed Luffy perhaps.

  • While many have contemplated Im-sama being compareable to Mesopotamian sea gods as /u/galleom said, or others, I think another good equivalent is the Norse (Ym

Underrated mythology? (Besides Irish or Norse or Greek/Roman)

Like, what did the Iranians believe? What about the old traditions of Christianity or Islam? What about all the Africa, Native American, or Australian Aboriginal beliefs? Are there websites that I can go to for this stuff?

Combining Norse and Irish Mythology? (Question)

I have an idea for a story that I want to write that takes place in a world where both Norse and Irish mythology is true. I believe that the mythologies can coexist because in Norse mythology there are two tribes of gods, the Aesir and the Vanir. The Aesir was the Norse gods everyone knows, Thor, Odin, etc. The Vanir on the other hand only has three gods named as members of the tribe. So I plan on saying in story that the Tuatha De Danann and the Vanir are the same tribe. So what do you think? Do you think that could work? I welcome criticisms and discussion

Norse Mythology and Camus

I’m not an expert in any way on either subject but finished reading through a bunch of his writings. It popped into my head that his notion of living an absurd life without appeal might relate in many ways to the beliefs of Norse gods in their mythology. I was wondering if anything has been written about that or if people had any thoughts as to how they either do or don’t serve as an example of living an absurd life?

(Spoilers) Spinfoil Hat: The Drifter Draws Parallels from from Norse Mythology

The symbol for Loki is a snake in the shape of an S. Loki has a child who is a giant snake named Jormungandr.

The symbol for the Drifter is a snake in the shape of an S.

Loki is an outcast of the Aesir.

The Drifter is also an outcast who has done “bad things”.

The Drifter is Loki.

The snake is Jormungandr, the world serpent.

When Ragnarok comes, the world serpent, Jormungandr will fight with Thor, the god of thunder. Jormungandr will poison Thor, and Thor will kill the snake.

Also, the Drifter is working with the Nine. Nine is a very important number in Norse mythology.

There are nine worlds. Odin hung himself from Yggdrasil for nine days and nights. Heimdall was born by nine sisters. Hermod rode Sleipnir (another child of Loki’s) for nine nights to free Baldr from Hel (he was killed because Loki tricked Hodr into killing him)

Thor takes nine steps after killing Jormungandr before falling dead.

(Manga Spoilers) An analysis on current manga events through the lens of Norse mythology

Hi all,

A year ago, I posted my senior thesis, Attack on Frost Giant. In it, I rambled for 90 pages about Norse mythology and how it ties into SNK. You don’t have to have read it for what I’m about to ramble on about today, but I think quite a bit of the thesis still holds to this day, save for one event involving (Second) Best Pairing that I got reminded of recently and have thus formed thoughts on.

So, when my thesis came out, SNK had just reached Chapter 105. Now that we have a whole slew of new chapters, it’s time I put on my analysis glasses again. Please forgive my slight rustiness in Norse mythology! My excuse is that I’ve been in med school this whole time and my brain barely has time to remember what my name is, let alone the rich tapestry that is Norse mythology.

Before we begin, I want to summarize the argument in my previous thesis: the question Isayama is asking us

Hey everyone! I played this game ages ago and remember you were either gnomes or dwarves I believe and you were tasked with mining down and building bases for your crew.

(Theory) (Effort Post) Norse & Hindu Mythology: The Return of Russ, Valdor, Corax and Janus with cameos from Cegorach and Jaghatai Khan

So I posted some of this off-handedly in comment on a post about Valdor earlier but after thinking about it some more… there’s actually one too many parallels here to be an accident on GW’s part, so I can’t help but feel that they’re building to something.

In short, my theory is this:

Russ will return as an Odin-like figure (as opposed to the Thor-like character he was at the time of the Heresy)

He’ll come back from the warp with one-eye missing, having sacrificed it for knowledge (echoing Magnus’s deal with Tzeentch), wielding the Odinspear (Gungnir, the Dionysian Spear), with two Ravens at his side (Corax and Janus) being accompanied by a Baldr-like figure, (Valdor, who wields the twin of Russ’ spear, the Apollonian Spear)


Jaghatai Khan has been chilling with Cegorach in the Black Library. He will return as a Hanuman-like figure (White Monkey, the Monkey King and Supreme Destroyer of Evil)

Book recommendations similar to “Mythos” and “Heroes” by Stephen Fry or “Norse Mythology” by Neil Gaiman

Yeah, as the title says, I’m looking for other books similar to Mythos, Heroes or Norse Mythology. I’ve read them recently and found them really interesting, so I’m wondering what other books are out there, be they be about Greek, Norse or any other mythology.

Any recommendations or advice on other places to check would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance 🙂

Is there any precedent in Norse Mythology to justify the plot of my fantasy novel?

So a bit of background on my story notes. Aedýr is an elf who was raised in Midgard in a normal Norse villiage.

Her parents were from an old family of Elf mages who could travel between the nine worlds. An ability she unknowingly possesses.

With Álfheimr being a world of light and nature, the closest other environment is of course, Midgard.

During some past crisis that I haven’t fully settled on yet, Aedýr is transported to Midgard to save her life from… whatever. I have a few ideas, but they’re all a bit weak. I’ll get it all smoothed out in the end though.

Anyway, is there any precedent in Norse Mythology for this ability to apparate between these worlds? It would be easy enough to just make it up, and I’m not looking for you to make it up for me, but I’d like to stay as true as possible to Norse and Germanic myth.

for anyone wanting more mythology family trees, here’s where i find mine – it’s greek, norse, and egyptian

Jotunheim: A 3-dimensional abstract based on Norse Mythology

Just came across this and it combines two of my great loves: abstract games and Norse mythology. I greatly appreciate how the designer applied a theme to an abstract to give it cohesion! Plus, the rules are simple, suitable for ages 10 and up, and the implementation of the physical version is beautiful.


Picking Norse mythology makes the most sense

I mean this purely in terms of ‘immortality’. The Greek gods, in Greek mythology were all immortal, like Prometheus for example, he would have his liver eaten by an Eagle and it would come back. The Norse gods (to my knowledge) are the only gods that aren’t immortal, they need those golden apples to keep them eternal, otherwise they would age and eventually die.
