As far as i know, grogg is slang for hard liquor. Glögg on the other hand, is another story. You buy it in a bottle, look at the instructions which tell you to mix it with some vodka, then you heat it and add a 'twist' of almonds and raisins.
Thor and Loki's trip to Jutland (sorry if I screwed up the name, been a while since I read up). Thor drinking the sea, fighting old age, etc.
Thats when they went to Utgard-Loki's Hall. I agree, excellent excellent story.
eh, they had someone else tag along with them. Tyr, I think.
There are to many mythic creatures to tell their stories.
But i think of Nidhöggr, Skinfaxi and of course Blutaar
It was the farmhands son Thialfi, they took them...he took his sister Roskva as well...as "restitution" for Thialfi breaking one of the legs of Thors goats to eat the marrow inside after telling them not to damage the bones but to pile them on the skin when they were done eating.
Tell me about creatures, that you like most. I`m just interested.

Wow man, that was almost as good as some of Patric's drunken posts.
yeah lol incomprehensible
So lets look what he want to tlee us....
My favourite story is the one where Thor gets dressed up as a woman for Freya's wedding. I also like the one where Frey first sees his wife. My nine-year-old kid likes the one where Thor goes fishing and catches the world serpent the best.
My favourite hero, who I always include in sumbel, since he's a real historic person, is Jarl Haakon.
My favourite creepy creature is Fafnir, that Sigurd slayed in th story of the ring, but there are sooooooo many good ghost stories in the Norse mythology!
My favourite book is Heimskringla, but really, one should start with the Havamal (part of the Edda).
As for what happens after Ragnarök, you will get many answers depending on who you ask. Some believe that the whole concept of there being anything at all after Ragnarök was something thought up as an influence of the Christian faith upon the Norse, while some do not. In other words, it really has to do with what you base your faith upon - historical pretence, intuition, and if historical pretence, which part (era) of history, as the faith has not stayed unchanged. To a large extent, the sagas were written down by one or more Christian monks several hundred years after Christianity had taken over, and so each one of them would have understood, interpreted and copied the story down differently according to their own cultural context. Even the creation myth differs depending on which version of what saga you read....
The story of Thor's fishing trip was my absolute favourite at the age of like 5, when I became interested in history. That one and the one where Tyr gets his hand bitten off by Fenris.
...the lay of Thrym of course
If anyone is interested myself and another guy are teaching the heathenry class at MysticWicks.com. It is a pagan message board and is free to register. I took over from the teacher who just kinda up and disappeared, we are currently going over the original lesson plan so if anyone wants to come join us. I go by Mjollnir there and the class is in the Circle of Teachings section.
Neat. When my friend went to college he signed up for a heathenry course, and as a field trip they went to a Heathen church. He told me it was creepy.
Oden or Odin?
Baldr, Balder or baldur?
i different english books i looked into there were these different spellings, which is quite... mmmh whats the word... not confusing but something else
so what is that about? baldr is the scandinavian way to write it and stuff?
In the D&D version its Baldur.
they translate phonetiacally, like the names of egyptian gods, or arabic words, where the symbols and letters don't quite match with roman letters, so the spelling must be based on pronunciation.
