The first doesn't say much more than what you already know via BGG.
The second is a contest AND also a poll.

Contest: write a sentence related to each deity; literally: Your mission: "Find a sentence / quote / legend corresponding to each northern deity". The winner(s) will get two copies of the game and two issues of Plato magazine.

Poll: vote for the 7th deity (it will be included in Plato magazine as a "mini-expansion").

Cool. Thanks! From the website, I wonder if the game will be French only. I hope there are English rules included.

Page 3 refers to a "red bag" (that doesn't seem to exist) and not to the green bag (that is shown).

Page 9, "army of the Vanes" should be "army of the Vanir".

Page 10, when explaining combat, refers to "die's value". However in all other occasions the die is only used to determine a colour. I understand that as "value" you intend the number of "crossed hammers" (or whatever they are supposed to represent) icons, but maybe it'd be clearer to say so (i.e. "add the number of hammer icons rolled" rather than "add the die's value").

The difference between Angry Enemies cards and normal Enemies cards is not explained anywhere; is it written in details on the cards themselves?

Thank you for your help.
I have corrected the mistake with the bags and precised the hammer on the die.
About the Angry Ennemies, their cards will be with lightning. It is quite clear with the components. But I add it in the description page 3.

My pleasure.
By the way, at the beginning of page 8, the French "éventuellement" has been translated "if you need to", that in this case doesn't make much sense. "If you wish" or simply "you may" would be much clearer, in my opinion.

I see (and I'm curious about Angry Jormungand and Angry Nidhogg, since their effects aren't proportional to lightnings, or what to roll to placate Angry Fenrir with 3 lightnings plus the extra one; I can postulate Nidhogg moving two enemies instead of one... oh well, I'll have to wait until Essen ).

If you weren't swedish, I would have said a great starting point (and by starting, I MEAN starting), would have been Edith Hamilton's Mythology. However, If you're really into it, and I mean willing to trudge through dry dry ancient writings, the prose and poetic eddas are the only place to go.

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

Yes, do you have a U.S. distributor and estimated time of release in the states?

Hi,

Eventually, Yggdrasil will not be released in october but later in the year 2011. We are presently looking for U.S. distributors. Be sure it will be avalaible in the U.S. but I can not give you a specific date now.

I shall post news a.s.a.p.

But that will only give us a one year to play it before the end of the world in 2012!

When the cards are translated into English - can you amend Odin to have an eye-patch goo

Odin doesn't have an eye-patch on the drawings but you can see that his left eye is closed/damaged.

So, it does follow the traditional mythology.
