Play as a demigod, chosen from a daughter or son of Odin, blessed with the powers of the gods. This mod adds unique classes with magic, spells, abilities, items and more.

Please note that your advanced settings will be reset on every new update for re-balancing purposes, unless 'Automatically Update Configs' is disabled in your configs.


It is important that you do not rename the file "NorseDemigods.dll" and ensure that other files that come along with the mod are located in the same folder, else the mod will not function correctly (if at all).

Mods which seem to be incompatible or partially incompatible with NorseDemigods:

Mod Comments
CombatincentivesREwrite Reported by an user on Discord: Cannot save nor respawn when using both mods in parallel.
Shawesomes Divine Armaments Reported by an user on Discord: Having 'ssj' activated will make your skill leveling too fast.
Veinmine Spells that damage ore veins will not function correctly on ores, but no hard incompatibility per se.

Getting Started

  • Check your in-game 'compendium' (click on the bird icon on the 'tab' menu) for all necessary instructions on how to get started. Your 'compendium' will be updated with more information after having chosen a demigod, such as abilities, attributes, infused materials, and even the possible hotkey combinations for your abilities.
  • You might want to change the hotkeys for your abilities by tweaking the values in section '(Hotkeys)' in your configs. The user interface is also customizable in section 'User Interface', which can be updated in real time if using a configuration manager mod.

General Tips

  • Although the mod is linearly balanced and somewhat vanilla friendly, once you get used to it, you could feel overpowered. It is recommended that you change the value of 'Difficulty' in the mod configs to something else, such as 'Expert' (recommended difficulty), or use the world modifiers or another mod to increase the game difficulty.
  • Even though this mod will fully work with already existing characters, it is recommended that you use this mod on a fresh character. Some demigods fully rely on their main skill (demigod) to cause damage (e.g. Fenrir), which will naturally and steadily progress from the start of the game, but may be tedious to catch up with if started late.
  • You can enable and disable optional features in your configs, such as 'Teleportation' or 'Harpoon Fishing', which was inspired by the 'SpearFish' mod by Korppis, allowing you to catch fish with an Abyssal harpoon and upgrade it. This mod introduces sweet fish recipes, which are an almost essential type of food for demigods.
  • Due to demigods having limited types of preferred weapons, I highly recommend the 'Warfare' mod by Therzie, which will not only introduce new weapons, but also new combat animations (for valkyries this is quite a big change with the introduction of pikes).


Below are the default hotkeys for the commands that this mod introduces.

  • Please note that some abilities are triggered by a combination of keys, which can all be found in your 'compendium' after choosing a demigod.
  • Some abilities are triggered using the special attack in conjuction with another event, such as blocking or jumping. You can find all combinations in your 'compendium' after choosing a demigod.
  • All hotkeys can be changed in the config file in section '(Hotkeys)'. It is recommended, however, that you use a configuration manager mod (such as the 'Official BepInEx Configuration Manager' mod by Azumatt) to bind the hotkeys directly in-game.
Command Default Hotkey Comments
Ability A Front-side mouse button You should definitely change this hotkey if you do not have side mouse buttons.
Ability B Back-side mouse button You should definitely change this hotkey if you do not have side mouse buttons.
Ability C Blocking + Front-side mouse button You can assign a dedicated hotkey to this ability if you do not want to hold block.
Ability D Blocking + Back-side mouse button You can assign a dedicated hotkey to this ability if you do not want to hold block.
Ignore Special Attack Left Alt (Hold) Some abilities override the weapon special attacks. Hold that key to ignore an special attack introduced by an ability.
Teleport P If you wish to disable the teleport ability, you can simply disable it in section 'Teleportation' in your configs (instead of unbinding the hotkey).

How to translate the mod?

In order to translate the content into another language:

  • If you do not have a folder named 'Translations' where 'NorseDemigods.dll' is located: Copy 'EN-NorseDemigods.json' and rename the "EN" letters into the language code you want to translate the mod into (as per the below table). E.g. 'EN-NorseDemigods.json' into 'KO-NorseDemigods.json' for Korean.
  • If you do have a folder named 'Translations' where 'NorseDemigods.dll' is located: Open the 'Translations' folder, copy the 'English' folder and rename the copied folder into another language as per the table below (e.g. 'Swedish'). Then inside the new renamed folder, rename the "EN" letters from 'EN-NorseDemigods.json' into the language code you want to translate the mod into (as per the below table). E.g. 'EN-NorseDemigods.json' into 'SE-NorseDemigods.json' for Swedish.

In order to update a translation:

  • Saiyan demigod completed. This is an over-powered demigod just for testing mechanisms by the mod author and for fun, which can only be activated via the console command 'MakeMeSaiyan'.
  • Bug which was causing Fenrir to gain massive amounts of experience while blocking fixed; to compensate, experience gained by Fenrir increased by roughly 50%.

  • Compatibility with the Ashlands update!
  • Russian translation added into the game. Thank you, Эри!
  • Changed the threshold of heavy armors to 3% movement speed penalty, meaning that any armor piece with a movement speed penalty equal or lesser than 2% will be considered as light.


  • Built-in difficulty revamped for better balancing. Higher difficulties will also slightly affect the base damage of enemies. Also added the possibility to increase the spawn count of weaker creatures such as greydwarves or skeletons under the 'Difficulty' section.
  • Fixed an issue with Therzie's mods which were setting the damage modifier to 0 for many of my abilities that are not bound to a particular skill. This is a work-around until Therzie hopefully decides to fix this on his end since it could affect other mods too.
  • Fixed a few lines that were broken with the Portuguese Brazilian translation. It should work correctly now.

  • Drop multiplier from attribute 'Hunter' will also affect feathers dropped from birds.
  • Ullr's sneaking visual effect will now also fully affect equipped armor.

  • Two new translation keys added:


  • Fix for ability 'Elemental Shield', which was breaking the game when trying to absorb periodic damage.
  • Fenrir's command for the slash ability inverted with ice shards (slash is now triggered with a simple special attack while unarmed, whereas ice shards are triggered with blocking + special attack).
  • Fenrir can now chop down trees with fist weapons. However, fist weapons will not benefit from the block armor bonus from Titan Arms and will suffer an attack speed penalty when casting iceshards.
  • Fenrir is now allowed to use torches.
  • Translation files combined into one: 'EN-NorseDemigods.json' for English. Renamed translation keys:
enhanced_armor_fenring_additional_tooltip --> item_set_fenring_enhanced_armor_additional_tooltip

unarmed_tool_tier_level_up_message --> attribute_titanarms_unarmed_tool_tier_level_up_message

  • Added a hotkey which you can hold to ignore any special attacks introduced by the mod, e.g. 'Slash'.

  • Fenrir can now punch logs that are too low. In fact, all players can now more easily hit things which are too high or low.
  • Fenrir can now normally use fist weapons (e.g. claws), but at a reduced damage and stamina usage (since Fenrir can punch much faster by default).
  • New ability for all demigods added: 'Teleport' - It will teleport you back to your bed, and then to the previous saved location before teleporting to bed. Can be disabled in the configs.
  • New attribute for 'Hel' added: 'Soul Reaper' - It has a chance to make monsters explode upon dying.
  • Added a setting to customize the recipe for crafting the Runestone (used to choose a demigod).
  • Fixed the damage of all spells that cast projectiles, such as 'Fire Ball'.

  • (Hotfix) Fixed an issue with the game running into an infinite loop when Thor would take damage from a non-character.

  • A number of bug fixes and code refactoring in preparation for changes to make the mod fully playable in multi-player (work in progress).


  • (Hotfix) Fixed issues with visual effects in multi-player that were out of place and causing massive lag, by temporarily disabling them. This means a player will not see all other players' visual effects, but at least this is a work-around until the issue is permanently fixed.
  • Hel's weapon buffs now also apply to two-handed axes.


  • Added new consumable 'Infused Hard Antlers', which will increase your attack speed permanently. Can be consumed up to 5 times.

  • (Hot Fix) Ability 'Fire Ball' and Staff of Embers were no longer working after update v0.5.1. They should work once again now.
