ABOUT THIS DECK

Scans of each card can be seen at www.marytcusack.com/maryc/decks/html/Cards/Midgard.html The Midgard playing card decks were released as a pair of decks, Danegeld (black) and Yggdrasil (dark red). Both featured silver foil embossed tucks and added bonus cards, Loki and Futhark/Fuþar. The Danegeld (Danish tax/Dane tribute) was a tax raised to pay tribute to the Viking raiders to save a land from being ravaged. It was called the geld or gafol in eleventh-century sources. It was characteristic of royal policy in both England and Francia during the ninth through eleventh centuries, collected both as tributary, to buy off the attackers, and as stipendiary, to pay the defensive forces. Almost always paid in silver because the vikings used this metal as their main currency for trade. Yggdrasil is the iconic ash tree of Norse mythology. Serving as the axis mundi (world center) and a direct connection between deities and men. The roots play an equally important role in Norse cosmology of Gods, Giants and Men. Huginn and Muninn fly high in the distance, overlooking the realm of Gods. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/653481781/midgard-playing-cards
