herbwicc: plantanarchy: herbwicc: viking-illustrator: darkwolfwitch: witt-craft: Runes! This was an assignment to create a set of flashcards that would appeal to kids and adults for my Type 1 class. They each have the rune symbol, the name of the rune, the meaning in English, the meaning (roughly translated by google, thanks google) in Norwegian, and a little icon I made. I made the big rune characters, but the display font is Comic Runes by takuminokami on Font Space (thanks internet). The cards are 3 inches by 4.5 inches.  Also please don’t yell at me if the meanings of these are wrong, my research was not particularly scholarly. (Once again, thanks internet :p)  Sweet, what a nifty little guide This is such a cool idea! Awesome! Quick question: are runes part of a closed culture? No, these runes here are the Elder Futhark, used as a writing system in the area that would be Scandinavia/Northern Germanic region. The names are Proto-Germanic reconstructions, so yeah, the culture that used these are very very dead. Similar runes were used by the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings (the Anglo-Saxons added a bunch of runes and the Vikings used less runes and some different ones and this was centuries later). The reason we know the “meanings” and names of the runes at all is because of a handful of rune poems that were initially used as mnemonic devices to remember them. The actual system of divination and magic via Elder Futhark runes is very modern and goes back to ~the 60s I believe? There’s some archeological evidence that runes may have been used for more than just a writing system, and the Havamal (old important morality poem for heathens) mentions that Odin hung on the world tree and sacrificed himself to himself and returned with knowledge of the runes. It also discusses that runes can be used for magic (though it doesn’t get into which runes or how to do the magic).So, to me personally, it does seem a bit weird to use the runes as just another divination tool without using them in context of the spiritual/religious paradigm they are connected to, but there are a lot of people that do and seem to have success with it. And I’d be cautious with getting into using them unless you’re willing to suddenly have Northern Germanic gods busting down your door whether you like it or not. Though feeling a pull toward the runes in general may mean they already have you.

Also there’s a bit where Thor’s eyes literally /glow with rage/ and of course the giants notice.Loki’s save? “She’s been… crying… all night…. for… love…. of…. you????” and it WORKS, SOMEHOW. Look Loki got 18 for Charisma and then leveled it up at every chance he got, he’s got like a +24 to Deception checks at this point it’s ridiculous.  Of course Odin has a +40 to Perception, so he can usually see through it. : my favourite legend from the norse mythology is when a giant steals mjolnir and says he'll give it back if he can have Freyja as his bride, but she refuses to go so instead Thor dresses up as her and Loki as her handmaiden and then at the wedding the giant places mjolnir in his bride's (thor) lap and thor reveals himself and kills everybody and if that shouldn't be made a short film with I don't know what should Do yo think they notice (Nah 443 systlin: thehornedwitch: systlin: rowantheexplorer: systlin: rowantheexplorer: systlin: fandomsandanythingelse: I was reading Hammer of Thor and this story was referenced and i just ran across this and honestly i can’t think of anything else SHORT film I demand TWO HOURS OF THIS The scene where Loki shifts himself into a lovely maiden and somehow smooth talks Freyja into letting them borrow Brisingamen for the escapade alone is worth a short film.  Image text is missing my favorite part, that what almost gave Thor away was that he ate basically the entire wedding banquet himself, and Loki was like “see, isn’t she a catch with her healthy appetite?” He also drank literally all of their beer and mead.  All of it.  All.  Of.  It.  To be fair, pretty sure Freyja could also drink all of Jotunheim under the table if she wanted, but she’d probably be classier about it.
