Thor is known through cult worship now as the God of the ancient practice of "beer pong."
What is "beer pong" you ask? Though its true meaning was lost some 2500 years ago, it still lives on within the heart of every college student in America. The "game" "beer pong" was originally created by the Norse Gods as a way to ease their stress in a competitive, heterosexual way. One God in particular excelled at the "game," Thor, and he gained much insight into celestial knowledge through it. In fact he was so infatuated with "beer pong" that he snuck it to the mortals on Earth behind the other God's backs, so they too could revel in its glory. Soon the people of Earth loved "beer pong" and all was good in the land.
Shortly after Thor was killed by Jormagund and the people lamented his death. "Beer pong" was ceased for seven years among Norse tribes after Thor's demise, in respect for its patron saint. The ancient practice soon fell into oblivion along with the Viking Boy Band, The Back-Fjord Boys and also a popular dance craze called, Smite the Christian.
Some 2500 years later, the spirit of Thor was revived and he once again bestowed the game "beer pong" upon the college students of America, who are known as the "chosen ones."
To this day Thor can beat anyone at beer pong and can still drink them under the table. Thor currently resides in Morgantown with his 157 wives which he rails every night...in succession, without respite. He also attends CFC every Friday night and manifests himself in human form within a lucky contender...usually Mon.
And the story continues...
He was one of the main characters in Dougas Adams novel, The Long Dark Tea Time Of The Soul.
His one flaw is that he is a bit homophobic and always wears an asgard when he is around Greeks... especially Hercules.
The girl then revealed that she was actually a bloke and told him "You're thor? I'm tho thor I can't thit". Needless to say that ever since that day Thor has been a bit of a homophobe.
Thor's main weapon is the hammer Mjolnir. This was made for him by the dwarfs Brokk and Eitri. He also has iron gloves and a girdle that doubles his strength. He drives a chariot pulled by two goats and it is the rumble of the chariot wheels in the mountains that was said to be the cause of thunder. Lightning was believed to be the sparks from Thor's hammer, or from the piece of whetstone stuck in his head after his duel with the giant Hrungnir. Once Thor's hammer was stolen by a giant, and held at ransom for the price of Freyja as the giant's wife. To get his hammer back, Thor had to dress as a woman and pretend to be Freyja.
Thor's father is Odin and his mother is the Earth. He is married to Sif, a Goddess of the harvest with golden hair, and has a daughter with her called Thrud. Once, a dwarf called Alvis wanted to marry Thrud, so Thor kept him talking all night until the sun came up and turned Alvis to stone. He also has a giantess mistress, called Jarnsaxa, and with her he has two sons, Magni and Modi, who will survive Ragnarok and become part of the new order of Gods. At Ragnarok, Thor will fight the Midgard Serpent, Jormagund. As he kills it, it will bite him, and Thor will die from the poison in Jormagund's fangs.
Thor was the patron God of freemen, whereas Odin was the patron God of noblemen and also the God of poetry. This meant that Odin was far more widely written about in the medieval poems, but that Thor was far more widely worshipped. This can be seen in the number of Norse names that include Thor. A few examples are Thorgeir (Thor-spear), Thorolf (Thor-wolf), Thorbrand (Thor-sword) and Thorbjorn (Thor-bear). I know of no examples of humans named after Odin. Some historians think that Thor actually replaced Odin as the 'top God' in the later stages of Norse paganism.
Overall, Thor is strong and formidable to his enemies, but also an endearing character because of his good nature and because he is so slow on the uptake.
Thor sends lighting, thunder and life-giving rain. He has always been a strong protector of His folk and gives gifts freely to his friends. He has a liking for farms, fields, forests, mountains and rivers. Thor has a hearty and often times bawdy sense of humor. He likes drinking, feasting, storytelling, and good company.
His favorite weapon is His mighty hammer, Mjolnir. It strikes lighting and roars with thunder when it is used and always returns to Hid hand. In both ancient times and modern times alike those who worship Him wear a Thor's Hammer about their necks as a sign of their dedication.
We even have a day of the week named in Thor's honor, Thursday.
