Nine Realms Learning Poem


Metal Gaia

From the Highest Peaks of Midgaard Where the Sons of Men Do Hold, To the Killing Chill of Niflheim The Land of Ice and Cold. To the Furnace Blast of Muspelheim Where Flame Leaps Far and Nigh, Nothing Born of Yggdrasil Escapes the Ravens Eye.

Down To the Depths of Svartalfheim Where Stone and Anvil Call, Unto High Liossalfheim Where Dark Ne’er Comes at All. High Up Over Jotunheim Where Giants Hold Their Court, All the Deeds of Every Land The Ravens Sift and Sort.

To the Heights of Vanaheim Where Elder Gods do Roam, Unto the Deepest Reach of Hel Where Spirits Make Their Home. And Last Up Into Asgaards Halls Where They May Find Their Havens, For It Is Known, Though All Men Fall, The Gods Do Keep the Ravens.

All without driving them to extinction in fact!

Good and Evil Continued


heathen Theory

Though a bit tedious, I thought it was important that I talk a little bit about what I meant in the previous article by good and evil.  To begin we should define the terms themselves.  For the purposes of this article good should be defined as that which is morally just, while evil is that which is morally unacceptable.  However these definitions by themselves are not enough.  Morality is a natoriously ambiguous term.  Morality varies not just from culture to culture, but also individual to individual.  The fact of the matter is that morality is, to some extent subjective.  I’ll cite the classic example of the man who steals bread in order to feed his children.  Now is this man morally unjust and therefore evil because he stole?  Or were his reasons mortally acceptable, making him by extension good?  Well the answer to that depends largely on who you are…
