Norse Mythology Quiz

This is a fairly difficult quiz that will test your knowledge of Norse mythology. We're looking for general knowledge, not tidbits you picked up from reading comic books.

Do you have superior knowledge of the gods? Do you deserve to be a poet or a jarl? Or are you shamefully ignorant, destined to be a slave or an outlaw? This quiz will assign you a place in Norse society based on your knowledge.
