“Time is just a petal of my beautiful daisies. Through the branches of the world tree, I see everything. I, Freya the goddess of Love, Beauty, Fertility, and Womanhood have always taken care of my people. For ages, I have watched how humans thrived, flourished, and reached the pinnacle of their advancements.​

I see a new age of beauty, love, technologies, art, and trade have awakened Midgard. It reminds me of my beautiful home, Vanaheim. It reminds me of my journey with sisters to bring equality, freedom, and wisdom throughout the 9 realms. I have rested enough. The horn of Vanir is blown. Rise, my sisters, our time has come. It is time to join alongside to raise a new Vanaheim on the earth.”

The gates of Vanaheim have opened. Freya has woken up in this new world from her divine sleep. Freya’s call for her trusted warriors echoed through the world tree. This is not a call for war. It’s a call to unite world women.

About the Project

Sneak peeks of the art

Warriors of Freya is an art focussed NFT project based on Norse mythology launching on the Avalanche blockchain. The project mints on the joepegs launchpad on Oct 6th. With a supply of 1000 & a mint price of 1 AVAX, the project brings incredible, never seen before art to the blockchain.

The Artist — MISHA

Misha is a concept artist & graphic designer who is a rising superstar among NFT artists. She shot to fame with her collection ‘Unicat’ which is a collection of 1000 unique genesis cats, the pet of a wonderful owner, who lives on the $DeSo blockchain. Warriors of Freya is her debut project on the Avalanche blockchain.

The ROADMAP

  1. The formation of the initial group of Warriors, the protectors of Fólkvangr. Each Warrior is special, a character close to Freya. They become part of the elite group that presides over the afterlife realm Folkvang.
  2. Warriors need companions — The top 10 wallets holding Warriors will be blessed with an airdrop of 1/1 art featuring a warrior along with an accompanying companion — a cat, a snake, an owl, or more.
  3. The Warrior clan will be provided with whitelist spots and alpha on future projects.
  4. We are in talks with multiple NFT projects to integrate Warriors NFTs into their games as in-game characters.
