The Via Aesirgard is similar to the Road of Heaven, in that it is religious in focus. However, the viking concepts of "holiness" and "sin" are far different from those of their christian counterparts. A Viking reviles cowardice or lying, but has little compunctions about rape, robbery or killing in war or challenges. Conversely, a "pious" man is not necessarily a weak follower of the pale Christ-god, but rather a devout student of the ways of the gods and a master of runes and sags.
