Ragnarok –Destiny of the Gods is a new and unique edutainment card game, designed to make learning about the culture, mythology and society of the Viking age Norsemen easy and fun.
“Ragnarök – Destiny of the Gods” is the intellectual work of Reynir A. Óskarson a passionate researcher of Viking-age culture, society, and history. He was born and raised in Iceland, where this culture has been preserved better than perhaps any of the other northern lands.
He has been researching, testing, studying and teaching about the life of the Norsemen in the Viking age for over ten years, working with some of the world’s most knowledgeable minds on Viking culture. The underlying theme to all this work is the mindset and beliefs of the Norsemen.
From the ancient texts
The deck of cards contains sixty-five cards, representing most of the beings found in Norse mythology, some of them unexpected and peculiar. Each card holds a text telling the Saga specific to that being, and the general statistics of the being along with character trait points representing combat abilities, magical abilities, influence and mobility. All this information is taken directly from the ancient texts. This work is an intense labor of love with more than a year spent on going through the ancient texts with multiple experts lending a hand.
Ever wondered where the wind actually originates from? The eagle Hræsvelgr sits at the end of the world flapping his winds to create it.
Loki is the only father and mother in Norse mythology he fathered Narfi, Nari, Fenrir, Jormundgandr and Hel but mothered Odins steed Sleipnir.
Utgard Loki‘s elderly foster-mother is the only being to be able to wrestle the mighty Thor down to his knee.
Mjollnir has a strangely short haft, so short that it‘s best suited for one handed use. Loki in the form of a fly pestered the Dwarf smiths while making it, the end result was the short shaft.
Learning about the mystical worldview of the viking age Norseman has never been so easy and fun before. Now it is available for all humans residing in Midgard. There is no need to sacrifice an eye like Odin for this sacred knowledge, it‘s just one click away.
Drink from the well of knowledge that is Ragnarok –Destiny of the Gods.
