I sure wouldn't want to break a promise to somebody wielding that ax! :)

Oh it is worse than that. She also keeps tabs on promises you make to other persons. :)

Being true to your word seems to have been really important.

Yeh they really stress that, I guess if you go to war with another group and you're expecting your allies to turn up then they don't… oaths are all they have really if they can't rely on that they have nothing :/

Yeah, it really sucks when you are facing the enemy, setting up your battle line and the left wing has not shown up. :)

Yeh you'd be screwed plus not much in the way of law enforcement, you need some reason to trust people. ^^

Yeh I often call them that but not sure if it's accurate, we might just know less about her cos the area where the myths were recorded she wasn't so well known, but she could have been real important in other areas. :shrug:

Well,...Odin, Thor, Freyja, Hella,...gang surely get the main roles. :D

I recall that Freyja's two daughters are also less known.

There's a lot more than that that the vikings considered main, and a few we know little about but could have been main, onces like Gefion where we know she was super important in one area.

Her daughters are Hnoss and Gersemi. ^^

It's tricky cos a lot of modern things only mention a couple of gods, but there's really loads that never get talked about even though they were real important, most people would have had a few that were important to them to focus on ^^
