Vanir are a group of gods associated with fertility, wisdom (magic?) and the ability to see the future. The Vanir are one of two groups of gods (the other being the Aesir) and are the namesake of the location Vanaheim (“Home of the Vanir”). Only three Vanir are named: Njord and his children Freyr and Freyja. Kvasir, Heimdall and Ullr are also possible members of the Vanir and will be treated as such in our game.
It is thought that the Vanir taught the Aesir the art of magic.
