Germanic? Mythology

Short though it is, it covers a lot. would a German narrator be possible? 🤔

informative

Informative even when there is a lot more about viking and swedish culture but I guess they where all related. reading was a little mechanic but not unpleasant. In total short and sweet but not to difficult.

Germanic myths are interesting

I think it overlaps with the Viking mythology sometimes, but they lived in the same region, so it makes sense.
