Thor with his hammer.

Thor or Thunor is the god of thunder in Theedish folklore.

Fiery eyed and red haired, Thor yebbened the worldstuffs of the wind and the storm. As he rode the heavens in his goat-drawn streetwagon, thunder and lightning shook the earth. Though he had these gremly thewes, Thor watched over both man and women and his fellow gods, and fought against the fiends of the world order. Those fiends gatherheld the World Snake, lying in wait in the sea’s depth, and the threckly frost etins of Jotunheim, embodiers of the mights of chaos.

The Norse (North Theedish Alltroth) saw the allworld as a stead of ongoing gainwending between the mights of order and chaos. Often at the ruth of natural happenings and the bewarpedness of man’s behavedness, Shedenaish. boors, shipwrights and craftsmen found Thor’s role as onlooker of heaven and earth strongly fair. Everyday-folk often called upon Thor for berg against the Odin-worshiping high-class. The folk saw Thor as strong and forthright, instead of fickle and mistiful like Odin. It’s not striking that of all the olden gods of Shedenay., Thor was the one who was most widely worshiped.

One marked meeting between Thor and a frost etin befell when the etin Hrungnir came on unwened at the fortress of Asgard while Thor was away in the east. After gulping down a lot of the god’s mead, Hrungnir began to boast that he would flatten Asgard and kill everyone other than the lovely Freya and Thor’s wife, Sif, whom he would carry off. The gods cried out for their shielder, who swept home on western wind with eyes ablaze, ready for dodrive. In the fight that followed, Hrungnir picked up a huge whetstone and hurled it at his foe as Thor let fly with his great hammer, Mjollnir. The hammer blasted the whetstone into bits and flew straight on in Hrungnir’s head, killing the etin where he stood.
