  • The three Norns (Urðr/Wyrd, Verðandi, and Skuld) carve the threads of destiny as they rule over the past, the present, and the future of everyone.
  • The three roots of the world-tree Yggdrasill, where Óðinn sacrificed himself to himself, pierced by his spear Gungnir — to gain knowledge of the runes.
  • The three years without summer that will herald the coming of Ragnarǫkkr signals not only the end of the world but also the rebirth and return of the shining Baldr, a murdered Æsir deity killed by the blind god Hǫðr misled by Loki.

ÞRÍR: Serpents in the Mist blend east and west, death and war, and myth and history, to reflect the widely traveled world of the Vikings, the Varangian Rus’, the Goths, and those who came before.
