I spent all night on this... If you would like to add/correct details I had mistaken, please do so in this thread (or my comments) and I will make corrections= no worries- it's cross-posted to death.

This topic honestly needlessly divides so many- I tried my hardest to use an academic approach and take away all modernist duality bias from the Lore.

Since each translation of the Edda's is ENTIRELY different in verbiage- I decided to rely on Mirabello and other sources I trust...otherwise, I fear it would have become a "war of translations" I have seen on other pages on this topic and the core of the issue would have been lost in the comments- knowing this- I sought to write this in a way that avoided that particular failure... ... ldrbaldur/

I greatly appreciate you sharing this, I'm not as well versed in the events surrounding Baldur's death as I would like to be.
On thing that has always puzzled and frustrated me is how so many people allow their perception of Helhiem to be influenced by the Christian version of hell.

Helheim is like any other large place- It has it's nice parts- it has it's not-so-nice parts.

It's likely nicer than Detroit.
