About This Quiz

Have you ever felt like you were greater than the circumstances of your birth? You're not alone. The Norse were born in a beautiful if challenging to cultivate land far from the intense interest of the Roman Empire and its cultural inheritors. They decided it was time to go big or go home, and if anything, the Vikings were not about going home! 

The Norse invented gods with extreme qualities. They invented the Aesir (or as Marvel has decided to refer to them, "Asgardians") and the Ice Giants, dwarves, elves, the works. The Norse pantheon was more Dungeons and Dragons than its Roman and Greek counterparts, and in many ways, more interesting.

So what sort of person are you? Are you, like the Vikings, easy to compare to the Norse gods and goddesses, or are you a harder person to pinpoint? We have come up with a quiz, taking full advantage of every advance in archaeology, anthropology, and the study of the Norse religion to decide which Norse god or goddess is like you, and vice versa.

Do you dare to know if you are one of the heroic gods or one of the ones who give children nightmares? Are you a god who is useful every day, or one who only comes up at the end of the world? Take this quiz and find out!
