* StandardFantasySetting: The setting of most of Myth/NorseMythology, most notably Literature/TheEddas. Long before the modern {{fantasy}} genre took shape, Norse Mythology envisioned a world where rugged warriors lived alongside semi-human elves, dwarves, and giants, questing for treasure and doing battle with monsters. Much of the standard vocabulary of fantasy is even ripped directly from the tales of the Norsemen, with terms like "Elf" and "Dwarf" derived from the Old Norse ''"Alfar"'' and ''"Dvergr"''; even [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings "Middle Earth"]] being a literal English translation of the Old Norse ''"Midgard"''. In short: the StandardFantastSetting was the Standard Norse Setting before the fantasy genre existed.
