Sons of Odyn
The Sons of Odyn are a reformed religious community of veterans and soldiers, formed shortly after King Arthas' escapades within the frozen wastes of Northrend, adopting the culture and way of life of their Vrykul ancestors. Their lifestyle is that of labour, fighting and gaining spiritual favour with their "Gods". They are heavily religious, believing their newfound faith to be the father of all beliefs, and expelling those from their community that do not embrace this faith.
Ancient Vrykul runes tell stories of the Titan Keepers, great, god-like beings that defend Azeroth from those that would see it destroyed, or harmed. There are nine Titan Keepers in total, all of whom hold a place of worship in Sons, for good or ill.
The Titan Keeper's are divided amongst the Aesir, those being made of metal and storm, and the Vanir, those born from stone and earth.
Odyn, The All-Father
Odyn, father of the keepers Thorim and Loken, often addressed as the "Storm God", demands the highest of respects within the Sons pantheon of Gods, being the most divine and the wisest of the Keepers. Odyn is worshipped widely amongst this community, and is the most popular deity. The Sons believe Odyn will take worthy souls of the deceased into his Halls of Valor to fight and feast in the afterlife, however this may only be the case for their Vrykul ancestor, rather than the human descendants, none can be sure.
Thorim, The Stormlord
Thorim, son of Odyn, brother of Loken, is one of the four main deities of the Sons, believed to bless his worshippers with great might and willpower. Those that travel the seas often seek his blessing for good weather, and those that partake in battle pray for his might.
Freya, The Lifegiver
Freya is believed to be the goddess of life, lust and fertility. Her blessing is sought during times of childbirth, and times of illness or plague. Though not as wise as Odyn, nor as mighty as Thorim, Freya still demands high respect from her followers, especially amongst those with child or infatuated by love.
Loken, The Trickster
Although often portrayed and spoken of as evil or malicious, the contrary is able to be said about Loken. The Sons believe Loken is the god of tests, sending those through trials and tribulations in order to progress and harden their resolve. It is said Loken is the reason for betrayals and ill-luck, though believed to be for the good of a person's character, if their willpower is strong enough to endure his foolery.
All beliefs, customs, stories and traditions are entirely made up on word of mouth, runes and stories. The Sons of Odyn's beliefs are not based off of facts, but rather what they perceive to be the truth based on their findings in Northrend.
Yes, this guild is heavily inspired from old Norse mythology. I hope to create a reasonable human interpretation of the Vrykul culture and beliefs, that are based on old Norse mythology, and implement it into a human society. So please, before you scream "nordic human gtfo back 2 skyrim!". Take a moment to really think about it, after all, most guilds are adaptations of the lore we have, and can be considered custom. However custom we may seem, though, we hope to stay true to WoW's lore and it's timeline, with our own sprinkles of imagination in terms of customs and practices of religion, way of life etc.
I hope you enjoyed reading my brief overview of the main factor of this Guild, it's religion. This is an interest check, any feedback will be appreciated and I intend to expand upon things such as the Sons day-to-day life and what the guild will entail in terms of roleplay.
I am still looking for core members to help me with this guild, if you believe you're able to officer a guild then by all means get in touch, and those that wish for more information beyond this don't hesitate to Pm me in game at Hjalti, or msg me on here.
