Viking Modern Dice Set: Niflheim
In Viking culture, Niflheim is the realm at the roots of the World Tree, the Yggdrasil. It is the domain of Hel, the ruler of those dead people who perished in a cowardly manner – those who were unlucky enough to not fall in a glorious battle, weapon in hand. Niflheim was a realm of dreadful, bone-chilling cold, and its deep darkness was only diversified by impenetrable fog that enveloped everything. Demons, against whom the Vikings felt a superstitious fear, were also occupying this realm. Meeting one’s end in Niflheim was the worst fate that a warrior could imagine after their death.
It is unquestionably right to call the new Modern Viking Dice Set by this realm’s name. First of all, the copper engravings are reminiscent of the old jewelry put in the ground with the deceased, and the misty-colored material further enhances the impression of Niflheim’s ominous atmosphere. Secondly, the remarkable legibility of the digits surrounded by immersive patterns inspired by Viking ornaments is full of mysticism and extremely straightforward at the same time.
Just like our first set of polyhedrons from this line – Viking Dice Set: Valhalla – this one also refers to Norse mythology and culture. But that doesn’t mean its only calling is to be used by brash warriors! It will also work just as well for a necromancer who raises his minions, a sailor lost on the high seas, a researcher of supernatural phenomena, or a rogue sneaking up on his target in the morning mist!
