HEIDRUN

The magical goat of Valhalla

There really aren't enough magical goats in the world. Take a moment to praise the goaty goodness of HEIDRUN.

She eats from YGGDRASIL, the tree that supports the world, so it's important that her diet is rigorously controlled. Do her nibbles cause earthquakes?

As if that isn't enough, this she-goat is entrusted to brew all the mead for the dead warriors rejoicing in VALHALLA, the Holiday Inn for Heroes.

Wait. A goat that brews mead? With all the rowdiness that goes on there they probably can't get the staff.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Heidrun graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Heidrun 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. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

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