End of the Hyborian Age
After the end of the Ice Age, the heights of Asgard became the Scandinavian Peninsula, along with Northern Vanaheim was part of Scandinavia as well (while Vanaheim in general was submerged by the Norwegian Sea.
The terrain of Aesgaard comprised three separate zones:
- The southern lowlands were forested areas.
- The central areas contained a sizable tundra.
- The northernmost areas were mountainous and permanently covered in snow.
The local population were called Aesir. They were typically blonde-haired and blue-eyed. They were fierce warriors, though with a taste for nocturnal revelry. They were not unified politically, as each tribe had its own leader. They were a nation, however, through sharing the same culture and religion. Their supreme deity was Ymir. The Aesir maintained hereditary enmity with the Vanir and the Hyperboreans, while they maintained a long-standing informal alliance with the Cimmerians.
