Viking Amazons of the Metal North

"A witch dwells to the east of Midgard, in the forest called Ironwood: in that wood dwell the troll-women, who are known as Ironwood-Women. The old witch bears many giants for sons, and all in the shape of wolves; and from this source are these wolves sprung. The saying runs thus: from this race shall come one that shall be mightiest of all, he that is named Moon-Hound; he shall be filled with the flesh of all those men that die, and he shall swallow the moon."
-The Gylfaginning, Snorri Sturluson

  1. Well this certainly promises to be a lovely time.

  2. You probably already found this in your google abyss , but I found this site to be extreamly helpful when I ran a 9th Century Viking game.

  3. Many of those would make excellent metal band names. Which is to say, they would make excellent adventuring band names for metal Vikings.

  4. just throwing this out there.
