I believe you misunderstood. Further on in my message I acknowledged that there were many god(desse)s and other folk in the Old Norse mythology who did not actually live in Asgard; nevertheless, they are part of the same pantheon, just as Hades is part of the Olympian pantheon despite not living on Olympus. What I meant was that i am unaware of any unrelated set of deities from that time and place. Of course, Loki et al probably all started unrelated and had their stories intertwined later, but from our standpoint looking back they appear to be a coherent whole, -Marcos
