Maybe so. Norse mythology itself always tickled my fancy.
I don't know if you're one for video games, but there was a Playstation game out about five or six years ago called "Valkyrie Profile"... and it remains one of my favorite games to this day.
Basically you play as one of the three valkyries who govern the flow of souls to Midgard, and your job is to find suitable heroes to fight for Odin is Asgard. It's not dead-on when it comes to mythological accuracy, but it was more than enough to make me squeal in delight.
Wow, wasn't that off-topic? Sorry to convolute the thread like this.
So how about them obsidian women? Mm-mm.
