MUSPELL
Also known as MUSPELHEIM, MUSPELHEIMR, MUSPELLSHEIMR

The land of primordial fire

This is an awful no-man's-land of fire and desolation, the southern-most fiery pinnacle of the NINE-WORLDS. It seems to exist out on a limb of YGGDRASIL the Cosmic Tree. Which is no bad thing — just think of the health and safety implications of all those naked flames.

It's the exact opposite and ancient counterpart of ice-ridden NIFLHEIM back in the days when the two realms were separated by the void of GINNUNGAGAP and Norse mythology was just a twinkle in YMIR's frosty eye.

MUSPELL is ruled by SURT the Fire Giant but there are no burning questions he feels inclined to answer at present.

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