Balder is the son of Odin and Frigga, and one of the most loved gods of Norske.

Once dead because a prank of Loki, Balder has returned according to the prophesies regarding Ragnarok, calling for a new era. Now, the Asgardians have renewed the vows of all things not to harm him, this time making sure that everything has been included. Loki has to speak a vow too, or be forever cast out of Valhalla.

Dogma

The cult of Balder search joy in beauty and in crafting beautiful things. They also seek to learn from errors and to accept fate as it comes, knowing that rebirth is possible. For these two reasons, the followers of Balder are always welcome to help people forget their sorrows, of better yet, accept them and continue living in harmony with the world.

Clergy and Temples

Most Balder's clerics are physically beautiful and all are excellent artists and artisans. They cultivate grace and elegance as source of beauty, instead of luxury and pomposity. Their temples are beautiful examples of this philosophy. The temples are not only places of artistic creation, but a place for those seeking comfort after a great loss.
