Strategy Edit

Militarily, Loki focuses on Hersirs and Myth Units, giving Loki players a distinct advantage when rushing. Hersirs' faster movement facilitates early rushes, if the player uses them instead of Ulfsarks. Moreover, hersirs can summon random Norse Myth units in combat. They do this by fighting long enough to generate the amount of favor that training the myth unit would normally require. Made easier by Loki's lower myth unit cost, this adds vital support to any combat, and means that Loki players have access to Myth Units that would not otherwise be available. As hersirs can generate favor faster than other soldiers, armies comprised primarily of Hersirs and Myth Units is a viable option. However, longhouse units are trained faster, so a more mixed force isn't out of the question.

Loki also helps with scouting. Eyes in the Forest gives the standard Norse scout, the Ulfsark, better line of sight. Also, the Spy god power is very useful if used on a villager or other economic unit. Finally, Loki allows Ox Carts to be built with fewer resources and makes them faster, giving the Loki player more flexibility in their use.

MythologyEdit

The son of giants, Loki was the fire god, but also a mischievous trickster and shape-changer who grew bored with the repetitive life of the gods. Many of his exploits caused great damage or hurt, but he was usually quick enough to restore order and prevent complete disaster. In one case, he caused the gods to temporarily lose the source of their immortality. In another situation, he tricked Thor into a threatening situation for his own gain, but later devised the clever plan to recover Thor’s stolen hammer.

His tricks became increasingly nasty and evil, peaking when he caused the death of Odin’s son Baldr. When he tormented and insulted the gods at a great banquet, the gods turned on him and he escaped temporarily by changing into a salmon. He could not escape Odin’s all-seeing vision, however, and Loki was bound up in a dark cave. Loki’s first marriage to a giant produced three fearsome and evil creatures: Fenrir the wolf, the great serpent Jormungand, and Hel, the partially decomposed goddess of the underworld. He had two sons, Vali and Narvi, by a second marriage. At the time of Loki’s imprisonment, Vali was changed into a wolf that killed Narvi. The dead man’s intestines were used to bind Loki in the cave beneath the mouth of a giant snake, dripping venom, where he waited for Ragnarok. Loki was destined to lead the army of evil at that final battle with the gods, where he would be killed by Heimdall.
