A search online told me the Norns are 3 Norse goddesses that come from Asgard. Are the Norns mentioned in more detail in any of the PS books?
|#2ripvanwormerMay 11, 2007 22:13:00||The Norns are the three fates, Urd, Verdandi, and Skuld. They're described in more detail in 2e Legends & Lore, and in On Hallowed Ground, but hey, here's a Wikipedia article.|
They don't dwell in Ysgard, but a root of Yggdrasil touches their realm - you can get to Ysgard using that.

IIRC they live on the Outlands?
Yeah they do, in the Realm of the Norns on the Outlands. That's the only reason I found out about Norns was because of the Realm in the Outlands. But I couldn't find anything about what the Norns were...just that they had a realm :P
I'll go check On Hallowed Ground

There's also a brief mention of them in Dead Gods, which (I think) places the realm in the 6th ring. I think that was about the extent of it, though, and I don't know if it is always/only in the 6th ring.

That's actually the reason I asked the question :P
I'm running Dead Gods and it mentioned the Norns but didn't explain who/what they were.
