He is such a good archer hunter and ski-runner that no one can rival him. He is beautiful to look at as well and he has all the characteristics of a warrior.

Beautiful to look at and an accomplished warrior, Uller is often invoked by people entering single combat. Ull is the son of Sif and the stepson of Thor. He is the god of winter and is worshipped by men who live in the cold northern reaches. His weapon is a longbow made out of a Yew tree and he lives in Ydal (Yew Dales). Uller has particular skill at skiing and archery. He has been known to carry a mighty shield, which possesses runes that will change it into a boat to carry him across the seas. He is called upon for help in duels and the skalds frequently use “Ull’s ship” to mean shield. His cunning makes him valuable to the council of the gods. When Skadi divorced Njord, she married Uller. Legends say that Ull will perish in the final battle of Ragnarok although it is not known how.

Dogma

Members of Uller’s cult exult in combat as much as any Asgardians, but they see no reason to fight up close when they can use their bows from a distance. When it comes to personal contests, they would rather compete at archery than with swords. The cult guides those who prefer melee to the worship of Uller ’s mother, Sif. As a hunter, Uller teaches respect for wild- life and nature. He warns against interfering with the natural balance and urges his followers to act like predators of the animal kingdom, hunting the less fit and leaving the young to carry on and continue the species.

Clergy and Temples

Uller’s clergy are often found hunting food for their temple and their community. They often serve as messengers between communities isolated by snow and ice, skiing or driving dog sleds. All carry longbows or shortbows.

Uller’s temples resemble hunting lodges. In addition to a greathall, they have storage rooms and workrooms for making skis, dog sleds, bows, and arrows. The kitchen resembles a butcher shop, as junior members of the clergy skin and butcher those animals Uller grants to them for food.

Visitors to Uller’s temples find themselves welcome, provided they show respect and appreciation for the natural balance and the food put before them. Hunters of all sorts are particularly welcome, and the clergy and faithful share techniques and tricks with the visitors.
