An occasional pathway at best, Bifrost is a magical plane-spanning rainbow of infinite length that can be called down at will by the Norse powers (and, some whisper, by powerful mortal magics) to bridge the void between any point on Ysgard and the Prime Material Plane. Travel down the bridge is somewhat like descending a multi-hued staircase, only the steps are invisible to the climber, and climbers are invisible to creatures on both the Astral (through which the rainbow slices on its primewards route) and the prime…beings stepping off the bridge appear as if stepping out of heavy mists.
The real darks of the bridge are unknown, and it’s an infrequent path to take at best, because most bashers are fearful or the wrath of the Norse powers who apparently own the bridge. Given sufficient garnish, however, the shamen of the trollish fensir people have been known to conjure the bridge themselves and allow planewalkers passage to any prime where the Norse powers are worshipped (which is a lot of ’em!) A pathway to be used judiciously, perhaps!
