Quote from Creedmoor »The gods in this set feel more like goofy humans rather than gods. Not sure how I feel about them.
I mean, half the point of the Norse gods is that, first of all, as with certain other pantheons of gods (like the Greek gods), Norse gods are very close to the temperament and behavior of the humans.
Unlike most other pantheons, however, Norse gods aren't immortal. At all. On the contrary, when they die they go to Hel or Valhalla just like everyone else. And, unlike virtually every other pantheon of gods, the Norse gods are not inherently born immortal. They are ONLY able to stay youthful in body and long-lived enough to see Ragnarok because of magical apples grown by their fellow Norse goddess, Iðunn. If they did not eat these apples, Norse gods grow old and die of natural causes, just like everyone else.
Norse gods being fundamentally mortal but powerful beings is kind of one of the whole things that make them unique amongst pantheons.
