Jord is a Higher Deity of the Njord Pantheon, and represents earth, fertility and agriculture. She is also associated with Iron and Steel, making her a god shared between both warriors and farmers.
Jord is said to be a very old deity, slumbering deep within the earth; perhaps even part of it. When there are earthquakes, landslides or other natural disasters that do not invoke the elements of other gods, they tend to be attributed to Jord.
It is said that when King Alfbrandt stood against the Black Armies, his prayers to Wodin were unanswered, prompting him to turn elsewhere for divine assistance. As his enemies encircled him, he uttered a prayer to Jord, and she created a great chasm to consume them. From that day forward, Alfbrandt honored Jord before all other deities, erecting great temples and shrines in her honor. It is said that through his communion with Jord, Alfbrandt was also able to create the first Runestones, which continue to look over Björgdag to this day.
