HRUNGNIR

A particularly annoying Stone Giant

The mighty stone and clay creature who was always getting drunk and challenging the Gods to contests. He never seemed to win but that never stopped him becoming a belligerent pest.

THOR reduced him to builder's rubble in a final contest, but not without getting fragments of stone in his head and being trapped for some time under the fallen remains. See also GROA.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Hrungnir graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Hrungnir 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 Hrungnir statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Hrungnir. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
