ASGARD
Also known as ÁSGARÐR, ASGARDR, ÆSGARD, GODHEIM, GOÐHEIMR, GOÐHEIMAR, ÅSGARD, ASGÅRD, AASGARD, ASGAARD

Famous Norse HQ where the Aesir Gods hang out

One of the most popular and well-known bits of the NINE-WORLDS, ASGARD lies at the far side of BIFROST the Rainbow Bridge. Security is very tight. You won't get in unless you're a dead hero on the way to VALHALLA via the tradesman's entrance. The halls of ASGARD have been built to withstand the onslaught of giants, and for extra security the exact geography of the place is a closely-guarded secret.

Although brochures of the warrior's paradise VALHALLA are readily available, what goes on in THRUDHEIM and the remaining halls is out of bounds. The Gods seem to do most of their carousing at their local club, a banqueting hall called GLADSHEIM. They are often to be found hanging out at the Well of Urd to catch up on the latest gossip from the Three NORNS as they sit in the shade of YGGDRASIL.

There are another six regions floating about somewhere. Even the most ancient legends contradict each other on the subject. We would guess that after enough beers it all makes sense.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Asgard graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Asgard movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites.

Visitors often email us asking about Asgard statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Asgard. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
