YGGDRASIL

Also known as MIMAMEID, LAERAD

The giant Ash tree that is the centre of the whole Norse universe and holds together the nine realms.

With more nooks and crannies than you could shake an ash branch at, the world tree has something for everyone.

Its a popular haunt of the Gods. They'd meet there everyday to discuss business, whats going on in the world and take bets as to who was going to get hit on the head with a giant hammer next.

But as well as group gatherings certain Gods would also make solo trips. Odin for instance went there to seek the knowledge. Mimir knows you know.

Aye, its a grand old tree but it was no easy life holding the world together .. the resident critters were a nightmare!
With Ratatosk burning furrows into the branches with her gossip runs, Vidofnir scratting away waiting for Ragnarok , Nidhogg's gnawing, Heidruns constant nibbling and God knows whatelse doing God knows what, I dread to think what might happen if the loving tree surgeons known as Norns weren't living beneath it to run repairs.
