"...it absolutely perfectly crappy if you're Scandinavian you just might express UGE by becoming either an Aesir (a literal angel, forsaking your physical body to ascent to the Astral Plane) or, A Frost Giant! Like Thrym! Which means phenomenal cosmic power, magical abilities, 12' feet tall and double-digit body and strength stats!... and an allergy to anything over freezing point."

What? Is this in the novels or something, because I don't remember seeing any of this in the sourcebooks. Is this true?

Not that I've ever seen (in a novel or otherwise). Maybe it's in some non-English sourcebook?

I've no idea. Also, it was pointed out 'Crawling Chaos' is in Shadowrun, and I'm trying to find evidence of this specific person and what they're doing. Also someone called 'The Matron'. TV Tropes has a lot of information in Shadowrun I want to get a hold of.

Immediately after the Aesir reference they quote "Awakenings: New Magic in 2057" as being one of the "later supplements" so I'm guessing that page has not been updated in a while. Probably some obscure reference to older editions.

The Aesir were the old northern gods of Asgard. Never been in Shadowrun.
Also, Giants never had problems with temperatures that other people did not.

There has been some updates - such as mentioning Harlequin having stats recently and such. But yeah, I'm really wondering. Would it be in Awakenings, perhaps?

The Æsir aren't too popular in the world at the moment, due to Winternight. Which really pisses off the Ásatrú something fierce.

It would appear to me to be a tongue-in-cheek reference to geographic metavariants and Scandanavian myths.

That whole section you quoted that from is apparently descripting content of the fan made Montana state sourcebook.

There's such a thing as male dryads in SR? Cool if that's true.

Second edition runners companion said Dryads are an all female meta-variant, but considering how much the metavariant has changed from that version, i wouldn't nay say a male Dryad just cos of that, as 4th edition has no mention of them being all female.

If Nyarlathotep, the Crawling Chaos, is wandering around in SR, I'd look in corporate boardrooms and R&D facilities. Maybe Roxbourough was a cover ID?
