Myth unit Edit

  • ValkyrieIcon Valkyrie: Mounted warrior that can heal friendly units.

Strategy Edit

Freyja grants substantial improvements to cavalry. Her myth unit, the Valkyrie, looks and functions like a cavalry unit. It can also heal friendly units – a significant boost for an attacking Norse army. Freyja's technologies improve Valkyrie and the human cavalry units (Raiding Cavalry and Jarls), granting all of them more speed and hit points. For Raiding Cavalry, this makes raiding even quicker, and, when supported by a Valkyrie or two, they can be healed too to carry on the attack quickly. More fighting also means more Favor, which means Valkyries can be trained more quickly. For Jarls, it helps them catch up to other units better, as their slow speed is arguably their biggest drawback.

Freyja's god power, Forest Fire, burns down a group of trees, often destroying nearby buildings. Naturally it is more useful on well-wooded maps.

Mythology Edit

Daughter of Njord, the sea god, Freyja was the goddess of love and lust. She was portrayed as blue-eyed with a voluptuous figure. The legends say that she was continually searching heaven and earth for Odur, her lost husband, while shedding tears that turned to gold on land and amber in the sea. (Odur may have been Odin.) In the Germanic tradition, Freyja and two other Vanir (fertility gods) moved to Asgard to live with the Aenir (war gods) as a token of friendship following a war. She wore the Brisings necklace, a treasure of great value and beauty that she obtained by sleeping with the four dwarves who had made it. She also split the war dead with Odin. His share went with him to Valhalla and her share went to live in her great hall.
