The Nine Noble Virtues are adapted from THE HAVAMAL: WORDS OF THE HIGH ONE and provide a basic set of beliefs that Odinist strive to live by.
Code of Knowledge
Knowledge is power, and power is strength, both of which are essential to preserving the Path. The Gods place a high regard on the pursuit of wisdom, as did our forefathers, seek to emulate their example by expanding the mind, striving for sagacity and reflecting their brilliance in all you do.
Code of Control
Restraint, reticence, and rational action demonstrate control of ones mental, physical, and emotional faculties. Control is essential to success, never lose it or give it up as you allow your enemies an advantage in doing so. Impulsive or rash decisions, disgraceful deeds, and exploitation of weak or innocent Folk are all signs of an undisciplined mind.
Code of Honor
Honor is loyalty to kith and kin, the respect garnered from a good reputation, both Truth and Tribute, the regard of renown, and troth to Tribe. A mans word reflects his worth and Honor is adhering to all oaths without fail. Honor the Folk and Path above all else, for this is the mark of Nobility.
Code of Change
The ability to adapt is among the most essential for ascension as that which is unable to adjust is doomed to perish. Therefore accept change as necessary and embrace it as an opportunity for growth. Change is the mark of enlightenment and evolution.
Code of Balance
Everything in existence is predicated on Balance, without it there is chaos, but through it derives order, thus the Code of Balance is the Absolute Law of Nature. Wholeness, harmony, and unity all depend upon Balance. Know it, understand it, and live it.
Code of Fairness
Never allow ignorance or injustice to be your guide. Instead, ensure that you always act in a fair, impartial, and equitable manner, without bias as these are traits that demonstrate a superior moral character, generating respect and high regard.
Code of Prosperity
Prosperity and procreation are essential to preserving the Path. Therefore ensure that our folk flourish by producing offspring to carry the torch of the Tribe and pursuing every opportunity to grove, thrive, and benefit the Folk. Always estimate the lowest member of the Tribe above the highest member of any other as we are bound by blood not borders.
Code of Protection
Protect with ferocity your Folk and Future, allow no one and nothing to infringe upon either, for they both depend on YOU for survival. Protect the Path at all cost, even with your life if necessary, for we are the guardians of the Way just as Heimdall wards Bifrost bridge from the unworthy. Protection is the mark of a Warrior Spirit.
Code of Conflict
Warriors Always Reciprocate, Respect, Injury, or Resentment. Those who follow the Path must master the martial methods for the way of the warrior is the Path of Wisdom. Conflict is inevitable and the durable Blade is one forged in the Fires of Ordeal. In conflict show no mercy, have no remorse, and expect neither in return; win, prevail, survive, and succeed!
