Asgard: the Nine Worlds

This is a diagram of the Nine Worlds of Asgard, showing the relationship of the various separate dimensional realms. The diagram is not drawn to scale, nor do the positioning of the worlds above or below one another have any real significance since they are not in the same dimensional plane. The only evidence for placing Asgard at the top is that the world-tree Yggdrasil has its trunk and branches there, while its root system manifests itself on most of the other worlds. Yggdrasil, also not drawn to scale, is aligned with the Cosmic Axis with which the Earth’s axis also aligned. Only a sample of the interdimensional passageways between worlds are shown here. The number of free-standing natural nexuses are unknown. The world of Niffleheim is not considered a separate world in the Asgardian cosmology, but is thought to be an adjunct world to Hell.

From MCS, don't forget your ass-guard when traveling through Asgard...

"The diagram is not drawn to scale"

Now that's funny.

It's funny cause it's true.
