Sadly I've read through them quickly so I,ll go over the article again tonight, but it looks good so far, I like the two chart as it does give us a good comparative view. The elven Gods are an interesting lot.

I posted an update to the Gods of the Elves blog article, regarding the subject of the reunification of Alorea with its former Calderan colony. Not all the gods agree about this.

Those are very interesting gods. And I do love the Rent-a-Hell concept.

Thanks. I had a good laugh with this when I wrote this. I can see this concept taking root elsewhere, sending a nasty spirit over to someone else's hell if local gods cannot be trusted. It follows the idea of the Egyptian medjay guarding the kings' tombs from the natives. The medjay were chosen from Nubians because they didn't have close relationships with the local folks, making this "police force" more reliable to their employers.

And how about when you described the faulty magic effect that generated subtitles and dubbing in the Rat Race??? :roll:

Thanks. That's the longest entry. It was unavoidable because there's so much to address in an existing mythology, and a lot of concerns about how to make the most important things fit the fantasy setting (Fenrir, the world serpent, Ragnarok, Yggdrasil, etc). Feedback is welcome before I move all this stuff to the final book version.

Looking good Bruce.
I was wondering whether you were interested in me sending you the viking name list (first name and nickname) this weekend :D
It could perhaps inspire some character creations as I have tried to find some funny ones.

Otherwise I you are awfully busy you can just contact me later when you need it and I will send it.

Hi there! Sure, send the list. I may not be able to go through it in great detail right away, but it will be available when I need it. Thanks! :)
