Storyboard Text

  • In the beginning, there was nothing. Earth and all of its biomes did not exist, Heaven did not exist.I t was an endless void of darkness, until Niflheim was made.
  • From a spring in Niflheim, twelve rivers arisen.
  • In the South, Muspell, a region of heat and brightness, was guarded by Surt.
  • To the North sat Ginnungagap, where rivers froze and all was ice.
  • Where the two met, the iced thawed and the water dripped. From this, a man named Ymir, the first frost-giant, and a cow was made. From her, four rivers of milk flowed and fed Ymir.
  • The cow fed on the salt of the lime rice, and as she licked, a man had emerged in three days. His name was Buri who had a son named Bor who married a frost-giant Bestla.
  • How could you marry that wench?!
  • One of those sons was Odin, the most powerful of the gods.
