Midgard Worlds

Midgard Worlds
From Northern Antiquities, an English translation of the Prose Edda from 1847. Painted by an Oluf Olufsen Bagge

Vanaheim

The elder home of the Vanir located like Asgard, high up in the World-Tree. The Vanir are more concerned with fertility, land-use, magic, and Craft, as opposed to the Aesir obsession with warfare and personal heroism. Originally, the two fell into early conflict having a series of devastating wars . Eventually, though, the two groups reached an accord, and hostages were exchanged to insure fidelity. Freyr, Freyja, Njord, are Vanir living among the Aesir. The Realm of Vanaheim is a lovely, rather bright Elven sort of region
