(Norse Mortal)HREIDMAR

Also known as REIDMARR

The father of Fafnir, Regin and Otr. A bit if a whizz in the black magic department.

One day Odin was out and about exploring the earth with Honir and Loki, when Loki caught glimpse of an otter just about to tuck into a lovely fresh salmon. He hardly had time to put on a napkin before a stone from Loki's hand hit him right between the eyes and killed him stone dead.

Loki : 'Hey. I just killed two birds with one stone!'

Odin : 'That's a fish and a water dwelling mammal you dumb ass! But at least we'll eat well tonight'

Stumbling upon a farmyard and hoping for lodgings for the night they knocked on the door. When Hreidmar answered he couldn't help but notice a strangely familiar looking pelt hanging over Loki's shoulder, and when he realised what had happened he went a bit nuts.

The Gods were fastened with unbreakable chains and made an offer of ridiculously huge ammounts of Gold in exchange for their pardon and release. They had every faith in Loki coming up with a stupid clever plan like he had so many times in the past ...
He had to think fast.

Remembering tales of a dwarf and his golden house filled with lovely glittering gem fittings Loki set off to find Andvari. His house was stripped of valuables in no time at all, right down to a ring known as Andvarinaut, but not before the dwarf cursed it to bring the owner bad luck and death all round.

'Fair enough' said Loki, 'but can you hold back on the death and misery until i've made the announcement myself? Otherwise i'll just smash your face in now.'

The Gods were out of the door before Loki paused to break the news of Andvari's curse, but it fell on deaf ears.

Hreidmar was the first casualty, with Fafnir, Regin, Sigurd, Brynhild, Hogni, Gunnar and more also lined up for misery of the worst kind as the ring went into doom bringing overdrive.
