IDAVOLL The plain or field in asgard where the shining palaces of the aesir gods stood. It was here that the young gods played games such as chess, and it was here that the god balder was slain by his blind brother, hodur. After ragnarok the end of the world, Idavoll became green again at the Regen-eration. New halls were built by the surviving gods. It is said that they found the golden chess pieces of their slaughtered friends and looked at them in wonder as they remembered the past.
