From my introductory draft:There is an ancient land to the north of the known world, a land of hearty people and their beautiful, eternal, white winter. This land is full of contradicting tales of monsters and heroes, of kingdoms vast and small alike, of unspoiled wonders in the midst of treacherous regions.So, here are my questions:
Mythic Scandinavia is not a land that can be found in history books, but it is one that can be found in inspiring heroic tales and active imaginations. Its landscape cannot be mapped or drawn, but it can be wondrously painted and sung about. Distance is not measured in kilometers or even how far a horse can travel, but in how far a song can travel and where the next legend lies.
Time itself almost ceases to flow as we know it and instead flows with a will its own. To some, Christian monasteries arrived in this land so long ago, they know not a time without one. To others, these foreign outsiders have just begun to encroach upon their lands. And to others still, speak with them on the subject and they will know not of what you speak. This land has always had Christian outsiders. This land has never had Christian outsiders. Mythenders traveling in the frozen north will encounter lands both modern to them and untouched by time alike.
If you have heard tales of heroes and myth, then you have seen this land with your mind’s eye. If you have only read about such strange, far-off places called “Denmark,” “Norway,” “Sweden” or places by other names, then you know not of Mythic Scandinavia.
