(Norse Place)HELHEIM

The Norse Underworld. Hel's Hellish Realm of the Dead.

Helheim wasn't at all like your average hell. There were no flames, no smell of burning sulphur, in fact it was bloody freezing! So cold that it's not beyond the realms of possibility that Helheim could actually be Niflheim which would make Surtr's more stereo-typically hellish land of the fire-giants, Muspelheim, the ninth and lowest of nine realms. Possibly.

It was full of what Odin would call 'complete wastes of time and space', those who died of old age or disease with not so much as an axe or sword about their person. They would be as much use as a kipper with clogs when the nasty giants rocked up with total world annihilation on their minds. See Ragnarok.

If you find yourself stuck in Hel's hall of Sleetcold there's not a lot you can do. The escape rate was zero even if she did agree to release one of her souls under certain almost unachievable conditions. See Balder, Hermod and nine worlds ...
