I love old legends and myths of any kind but Old Norse is one I haven't ever really looked too deep into, should be good :)

Old Norse mythology is one of my favourites!! Have a google sesh on Loki, he's awesome.
loki is the trickster god, right? i have heard of him, no idea he was norse though, for some reason i thought he was native american ... hmmm, i shall be investigating!!!

In Norse mythology, Loki is a god or jötunn (giant), or both. Loki's relation with the gods varies by source. Loki assists the gods, and sometimes causes problems for them. Loki is a shape shifter and in separate incidents he appears in the form of a salmon and a mare. Loki's positive relations with the gods ends with his role in engineering the death of the god Baldr. Loki is eventually bound by the gods with the entrails of one of his sons. A serpent drips venom from above him that his wife Sigyn collects into a bowl. However, Sigyn must empty the bowl when it is full, and the venom that drops in the mean time causes Loki to writhe in pain. During the events of Ragnarök, Loki is foretold to fight against the gods among the forces of the jötnar. There, he will encounter the god Heimdallr and the two will slay one another.

Loki is the son of Fárbauti and Laufey, and the brother of Helblindi and Býleistr. By the jötunn Angrboða, Loki is the father of Hel, the wolf Fenrir, and the world serpent Jörmungandr. By Sigyn, Loki is the father of Nari and/or Narfi. By the stallion Svaðilfari, Loki is the mother of the eight-legged horse Sleipnir. In addition, Loki is referred to as the father of Váli in the Prose Edda.
I'm very happy if i could help.I found it on Wikipedia :rolleyes:

Yes I have . It was great . Has a sad quality and a totally differnet feel to it, compared to Lord of the Rings.
