Creatures and other Myths


One a day or so...

Bergelmir

Norse Norse
Mountain Dweller
Deadly

Frost Giants Frost Giants (common type)
One of the Frost Giants of Norse myth. He lived at the same time as the primordial Ymir.

When Ymir was slain his blood oozed out and formed oceans. This flooded the land of the Frost Giants but Bergelmir managed to escape the flood with his wife on a huge boat which he had built. From him and his wife descended a new race of Frost Giants who sought revenge on the gods for killing Ymir and their ancestors.

Re: Creatures and other Myths


I'm sure Bergelmir is from actual mythology, but that format suggests the information may have been taken from a RPG manual...

Re:


Freybug

A large Black Dog that preyed on drunken people who were returning home after a night out in the towns of Medieval England. Like most of the Black Dogs of Europe it was huge and devilish only appearing at night only out on the lonely roads. It was the size of a calf. It was mentioned in a manuscript in 1555.

Re:


Tarasca

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

A great Dragon from the legends of Spain. It is similar to the Tarasque of Southern France, but this flying serpent would eat children of the Spanish community. This Dragon is still remembered in the feast day of Corpus Christi in Redondela, in Pontevedra. An effigy of the Dragon is paraded around the streets with small children inside its belly.

Re:


Wayland Smith

Also known as Weiland, Weland Smith, Volund.
   
A great black smith and an invisible Giant that supposedly originated in the Bronze Age and the Iron Age, being associated with their monuments. He is described in the Germanic manuscript of 1000 AD. He lives in lonely and abandoned Hill Forts where he manufactures all kinds of metal objects. It is believed that if you left a horse with some money outside one of his abodes, the horse would be found newly shod the following day. His name is included on the charter of Berkshire dated 855 AD (a place that is now Oxfordshire) and was mentioned by King Alfred the Great (c. 899 AD) as an excellent and wise blacksmith. He is even included in the tales of Beowulf as he forges the weapons and armour for Beowulf. There are numerous sites in Britain that are associated with him. One is Wayland’s Pool which is a stretch of water where the Giant would cool the hot metal tools that he forged.
