- I had to look up the well of Mimir Gegelolococo, you have better knowledge about mythology than myself. What an interesting idea!

I think the interesting part with what you already created is the severed "Head of Mimir" in connection with the Well of Knowledge.
There is also the Mead of Poetry which magically increases logics..
The Celts had very similar myths with the Cauldron of knowledge and the severed head of Bran the Blessed..

I love all kinds of mythologies (with a soft spot for Norse and Celtic), and the way they seem to be "connected" and tell the same (historical?)stories from different points of view.. What a good source of inspiration for your historical theme sims game, no?

The first link above shows how the 'Viking' gods of Asgard (in Asia..) have been connected to the Trojans Greek legend (Hector = Thor, Ulysses = Loki). The surviving Trojans were also assimilated with the mysterious fabled Tuatha de Danaan demigods who one day landed in Ireland with magic treasures (including the Cauldron of Dagda, a Grail archetype)..
And I always like to connect the read-haired bearded viking god Thor to the storm god of the Egyptians, Seth (also often epresented with red hair, or as a red jackal), who was said to be adopted from ancient invaders tribes, the mysterious "People from the Seas"..
By the way, did you know that the not-too-recommendable god Odin / Wotan (the supreme politician I would say) was not only the leader of the ghastly Wild Hunt (maybe associated with Halloween) but also the original figure of the popular Santa Klaus (before "old nick" / st Nicholas and the coca-cola jolly man with the red coat).. A "Satan Santa" indeed..
