Nope, main god of the Aesier, the Old Norse Gods.

Valhalla was his house.

Until Kromm bought it for his cat, obviously.

I read that there is a revival of the worship of the Aesir. Called Usutru or something very similar. It's supposed to have its start in Iceland.( The revival that is.)

A seperate thread where you sing Andrew Hackard's praises would be a start.

Otherwise you clearly do not find him great enough for such a thread.

And besides, Kromm's reach is infinite, just like his greatness.

I didn't imply otherwise. I was mutating the topic as we were speaking of the Aesir. I think worshipping the Aesir is more cool than I have words for, really. I just hope that the racists don't try to make it theirs.

Of course, it isn't as cool as worshipping Kromm.

Racists have a right to their beliefs are much as anyone else, as long as they don't harm anyone.

Of course, it doesn't mean we have to like them or listen to them, but I'm afraid there is little we can do about them if we want to have freedom of speech as a real concept, instead of a hypocritical masque.

Well, we could always ask Kromm to make them go away.

Nothing is as cool as the veneration of Kromm.

Except of course Kromm himself, who is much cooler.

He's fricking subzero.
