Inspired by Marisa's versions the Norse gods Loki and Thor , I made some myself



* FREY *

(or Freyr, ”Lord”, also called Yngve)

Frey was the goddess Freya 's brother, and god of fertility, harvest and prosperity.

Frey was married to the beautiful giantess Gerd (or Gerðr), and their son Fjolner became - according to the old saga Heimskringla - king of Old Uppsala in Sweden.

Frey's ship was Skibladner (Skídhbladhnir), built by the dwarven brothers Brokk and Sindri.
The ship was big enough to hold the whole of the host of Asgard, and whenever the sails were hoisted, a fair wind followed. It could travel over both land and sea, and when not in use it could be folded like a cloth and carried in one's pouch.

I'm pretty sure that they might have a god for mead....However, here is a god for the average Joe's in the Norse View....Thor himself. Ingvi, on the other hand, was actually a male god who was converted from his female form that was made by the earliest Norse, probably the Teutonic people.

Of course, you may end up being suprised that Freya (Frey's sister) was actually a very warrior-like goddess who commanded the Valkyries to pick up the dead heroes during the heat of the battle.

But thanks for Frey anyways.

God, please protect me from your idiot followers for they have blinded themselves with bleach.

Money doesn't buy you happiness but it buys you beer and coffee.

Life is like Go. Its takes smart and amoral people to make decisions based on their strategies of living.

I haven't found a God for Beer', so to speak, but mead is connected to some Norse characters:

The jotun Suttung's daughter Gunnlöd watches the mead of poetry.
Odin persuaded (and possibly seduced) Gunnlöd to let him drink of this mead, and remarked that it gave him the gift of poetry and composition.

It was also said about Bragi, god of poetry, that he 'inspired poetry in humans by letting them drink from the mead of poetry.'
(Gunnlöd was supposedly Bragi's mother)

The mead of poetry was made from the blood of Kvasir (the wisest of the Vanir*) and honey.


The goat Heiðrún/Heidrun in Valhalla produces not milk, but mead, and she makes enough every day for all the Einherjars (fallen warriors who come to Valhalla) to drink their fill from it.

* There were two races of gods in Asgard: The Vanir and the Aesir.

Just wanted to join the discussion by pointing out the fact that these gods isn't only Norweigan but swedish too (and probably Dannish and Finnish).
And as far as I know they didn't have any beer god.

He's gonna get eaten by a pink giant marshmallow!

Norse doesn't mean Norwegian, it's the term for old Nordic.

finns, as in, the actual altaic people have their own finno-ugric mythology. the nordic stock can't be considered finnish, but rather nordic living in the land of the finns.

byggvir could be considered a god of beer. (think brygger)

though, we all know pribbs is anything but godly.
