Origins
The Gods of Avadonne make up what could rightly be called a, “Post-Asgardian” pantheon because the cosmology of Avadonne says tthat Ragnorak was the cataclysm which created it over a thousand years past. As such, some of the chief deities of Avadonne are the survivors among the Norse divinities, though the names their worshipers know them by have changed over the course of a thousand years, Though Balder, the lone survivor among the original Asgardian Pantheon is still known as such. Despite the obvious relationship between Midgard and Avadonne, much has changed as a result of Ragnorak, and this is no more the same world or pantheon that it once was than it is any other world or pantheon. That being said, there are some similarities, as you may notice.

On the Otherworldy servants of Kord
It is common for very powerful deities to be served by outsiders, mostly celestial or fiendish Giants and/or Magical Beasts, with Kord, god of Strength and Fury, being the closest to a total exception. Kord displays great reluctance in appointing any outsider to his service, especially to positions of prominence, preferring either extremely pious, departed, souls or his living-ascended worshippers. This is because he mistrusts any being who, unlike himself, lacks a true soul. While all the gods of aAvadonne ahave outsiders among their servants, and Kord is no different, it does not take more than a cursory glance around his divine court to note his divergent attitude. In fact, if ever an outsider is to serve Kord on a regular (or even semi-permanent) basis, he is very careful never to assign them any role more important than that of Guardian Host for some High-ranking mortal priest or messenger; excepting Olameck, a Celestial Giant Litorian Level 15 Paladin (Lawful Good), who serves as Kord’s emissary and inter-planar diplomat as well as advisor. Kord is well aware of Olameck’s Mystery Cult, “The Lords of the Golden Mane,” but acquiesces such mis-direction soo long as they do not oppose his own clergy and so long as Olameck continues to assert Kord’s will in the courts of other divinities.

On the Planes and their Natures
There are three oppositional pairs called, “Outer Planes,” they are the Planes of Law and Chaos, Good and Evil as well as Nicety and Hostility. Creatures native to any of these six planes are referred to as Outsiders, so named because they are at least partially composed of the essence(but not necessarily the material essence) of some plane other than the Prime Material Plane. As a result, Outsiders are able to move between the planes with less restriction than material beings, it is thought, because they have no souls which are bound to one plane or another. When an outsider dies, it simply ceases to exist.
Neighboring the Outer Planes within the Astral Sea, are the Elemental Planes
of the Native subtype as they are despite living on the plane of Ysgard are all Ascended Mortals
