Attack of the Frost Giants

Image
Of all the races of giants, the foremost enemies of the Asgardian gods are the frost giants. The direct descendants of the first giant, Ymir, the frost giants live in the area of Jotunheim whose climate resembles that of Earth's Polar Regions. The capital of Jotunheim was Utgard, the citadel of the frost-giants. Temperatures in this area never rise above the freezing point of water. The frost giants can exist comfortably at frigid temperatures but are highly vulnerable to heat. Although they can withstand the normal temperatures to be found in Asgard and in the temperate regions of Earth, intense heat causes them to shrink in size rapidly, as if melting. Long exposure to cold will eventually cause them to grow back to their previous size. The frost giants' powers are strongest in their own realm of Jotunheim, presumably due at least in part to the frigid climate of much of the realm. These giants live up to 250 years in societies led by a "jarl" and often survive b…

Remember the this year

A message from Mnemosyne; Titan Goddess of Memory. "Remember  some of the key moments of 2013."
March 13: Pope Francis elected Roman Catholic history was bent in 2013 by two stunning events: Pope Benedict XVI resigned, the first in 600 years to do so, and elected to replace him was Argentinian bishop Jorge Bergoglio, the first South American and first of the Jesuit order to rise to the papacy. Starting with his appearance on the Vatican balcony March 13, Bergoglio has struck the world as "different." He is the first Pope Francis, honoring mostly St. Francis of Assisi, who renounced family wealth to live as and serve the poor. The new pope followed suit, refusing to move into the luxurious papal apartment. His sharp focus on the poor is just one of the startlingly plainspoken attitudes now issuing from the tradition-bound Vatican.
