StrategyEdit

Baldr benefits your military in a variety of ways. Dragon Ships get more speed and hack armor. Raiding Cavalry get increased attack against Archers and Throwing Axemen, and Portable Rams get more speed, attack and decreased training rate, allowing them to destroy defensive building quickly.

His Myth Unit, the Fire Giant, is a mighty engine of destruction, dealing hack damage despite being ranged, making them a good way to counter ranged units. Their special attack enables them to hurl 3 fireballs at a target, dealing minor AoE damage.

MythologyEdit

Son of Odin and Frigg, and father of Forseti, Baldr spread goodwill and peace wherever he went, making him one of the best loved of the gods. His popularity and innate goodness attracted the ire of Loki, who plotted mischief. Baldr was tormented by nightmares, a sign of impending death, and this disturbed the gods. After much trouble, Odin determined Baldr’s fate and then took steps to prevent it. Loki intervened, however, and Baldr was killed by a branch of mistletoe thrown by his blind brother Hodr, as had been foretold. Attempts to ransom Baldr back from Hel were thwarted by Loki. Nevertheless, Baldr was expected to return after a great world catastrophe and rule a rejuvenated world. The similarity of these expectations may have aided the initial spread of Christianity among the Norse.
