* As a general rule, in Myth/NorseMythology natural phenomena are personified as giants (Jotnar). Fire, ice, and time are examples of this. Meanwhile, the gods usually represent man-made concepts like war, sailing, wisdom, and song. Norse mythology can thus be seen as a representation of a war between man and nature, where nature is decidedly evil.

nature. [[GotterDammerung And then in the end they will end up destroying each other.]]]]
** Scandinavian folklore in general is also rife with this rope; nature is inhabited by FairFolk and {{Eldritch Abomination}}s that ''can'' and ''will'' hurt or kill you if you're not careful and don't treat them with the respect they deserve.
