Thor's Hammer

Thor's Hammer, from Norse Mythology, said to be able to strike down mountains, was a symbol commonly worn as an amulet during the Viking era as a testament to his fierceness and their loyalty.

  5. lol Y'all better get your game on, winning by default, that's just wrong =( You're just thinking too hard, not considering some very interesting myth and lore, what about Celtic, Druid, Native American, Egyptian, for that matter Witchcraft! So much awesome stuff out there, very inspiring stuff =)
