Frigga is the goddess of wedded love, marriage, destiny, and the sky. She is also the recognized deity of dragons because they soar through her domain of the clouds and sky. Frig is the wife of the powerful Norse god Odin, The All-Father.
A sky goddess, responsible for weaving the clouds (and therefore for sunshine and rain and the fertility of the crops), she is also responsible for weaving the fates of mortals.
She is known as a ‘seer’, one who knows the future though she could never change it.
The Goddess Frigga, who sits at her spindle weaving the destiny of man and gods alike, is the goddess associated with the beginning of each new year.
New Year’s eve, the longest night of the year, is called “Mother Night” for it was in the darkness of that night that the goddess Frigga labored to give birth to Baldur who was so pleasant and ‘radiant’ was beloved of all the gods.
The blessing of Frigga is still invoked for birthing women with a white candle that last burned during the winter solstice being used as a charm to ensure a safe delivery.
A loving mother, Frigga’s ability to see into the future caused her great pain as she foresaw the death of her beloved son Baldur.
Even though she knew that she could not change his destiny, she simply couldn’t just sit by and watch so the frantic goddess extracted a promise from all things that they would play no role in his death. Unfortunately she overlooked one thing, the mistletoe plant, which seemed too insignificant to approach.
And this was the unraveling of her plan.
For when the malevolent trickster Loki discovered her oversight, he fashioned a dart made of the poisonous plant and, in a cruel trick, placed it in the hand of Baldur’s brother Hodor who was the God of Darkness, and offered to guide his hand while teaching him to shoot darts.
And so he did, guiding the arrow directly into Baldur’s heart. Frigga’s tears of mourning were so bounteous that the hapless plant that had caused his death took pity. From then on it would bear milky white berries that were formed from her tears.
When Balder was brought back to life, Frigga was so grateful that she reverses the curse she had placed on “the baleful plant”, changing it to a symbol of peace and love and promising a kiss to all who passed under it.
Frigga’s tender, nurturing side is widely recognized.
In addition to being a protector of women in labor, Frigga ensures fertility and is also the goddess called upon to bring a woman love and marriage. She was also called upon by those who are dying, to ease their transition into the after-life.
Frigga is a goddess who keeps mortals in touch with their intuitive nature and helps them make transitions and new beginnings.

Clergy & Worship of Frigga
Clerics of Frigga are always women and they must be married before entering the clergy. Their vestments are costly, flowing gowns of the deepest sky blue. Their hair is left bare, with gown hood, or with shawl. But Frigga’s clerics never wear their hair loose and always in some braided form to symbolize their married status.
Because of Frigga’s method of morphing into mighty creatures to fight with tooth and fang, Her clergy learn to use their natural attacks, that of hand, foot and body. All of Frigga’s clergy gain the Improved unarmed strike feat for free.
Frigg’s clergy are blessed with the ability to weave destiny. Once per day they may apply a 3/-3 at 3rd, +4/-4 at 6th, +5/-5 at 9th, etc.). This ability can be applied to any dice roll of any being (including herself) within sight.
Also, once per month, a cleric of Frigga may attempt to influence the fate of herself, or another. If she, or someone else dies within her presence, (20 feet x cleric level), she can elect to have the dice roll that caused the death (failed save, to hit roll, failed swim check, etc.) to be rerolled. Whatever is rolled on the reroll can not be changed and is the new fate weaved for that person even if the death is not prevented. If someone died of natural causes, or any other method that did not involve a dice roll, then their fate is set by Frigga herself and can not be changed.
Frigga’s holy days are monthly with the new moon when burnt offerings are given in her temples. Her most holy day is that of the winter solstice when new beginnings are celebrated for the coming year.
