About this creation



Category Myths and Legends, for Team Jigsaw, for the MocAthalon

This is a scene depicting a dwarf making Fenris' chain, on his anvil by his forge. The story of this is roughly as follows:

Fenris was a wolf. A very hungry wolf, that somehow was the offspring of one of the Norse gods.
Don't ask.
The other Norse gods fed him, and he grew as fast as they fed him. Pretty soon, they realized that this could be a problem when he got to be giant sized. So they set to making a chain that would hold him.
They made a chain; Fenris broke it. So they made a bigger one, and told him his street cred would skyrocket if he broke it. He did.
The Norse gods kind of freaked out after that, and outsourced the whole chain-making job to the dwarfs. The dwarfs made a magical chain, small and thin. So the Norse dudes went over to Fenris, who was pretty large by this time. Gods: 'Hey, man, here's a new chain we made for you to break. Try it! Or are you chicken?!'
Well, Fenris hemmed and hawed a bit, but like all myths involving Norse gods, every character is moronic, and Fenris eventually gave in.
It didn't work out so well for him.

Awesome anvil! The blasť way you retell the myth could have gone either way for you here. Normally that would irritate, but I have to admit that actually made me laugh. The build was nice and simple but effective... or is it affective... I never ever know which one to use. I think this deserves a 4.
