(Norse Place)NINE WORLDS

Linked by the roots of Yggdrasil were the nine Norse realms.


Starting at the top and working down there's :

1 : Asgard - the World of the Aesir

2 : Vanaheim - the World of the Vanir

3 : Alfheim - the Land of the Light Elves - ruled by Freyja

4 : Midgard - Middle-earth - the bit we humans live in

5 : Nidavellir - Land of the Dwarfs

6 : Svartalfheim - Domain of the Dark Elves

7 : Jotunheim - Land of the Jotun or Giants - ruled by Prymr

8 : Niflheim - The frosty Realm of Ice

9: Helheim - Hel's hellish domain of the Dead

Just to confuse matters Helheim and Niflheim may well be the same place, in which case Muspelheim could be the lowest realm. Nidavellir may also be Svartalfheim which would pave the way for Ginunngagap to crash the nine worlds party.
