Futhark Village

Ansuz and Raidho

Ansuz clapped as Althunn finished reciting another of her poems. Dwarven poetry's style was different than what he was used to from Midgard, but beautiful in its own way. Like the dwarves themselves, the initial horror of their unusual shape hid great beauty.#futharkvillage — Perseus Greenman (@futharkvillage) December 30, 2019 In all, Ansuz was finding […]

Thurisaz and Raidho

Today's story focuses on Thurisaz the Giant-Slayer and Raidho the Traveler. Thurisaz is a rune of conflict. I would say a battle counts. Raidho is a rune of movement, and trust me: things are going to move today!#futharkvillage pic.twitter.com/ut6p1YgYlW — Perseus Greenman (@futharkvillage) November 5, 2019 Thurisaz cursed, then streaked toward the door like lightning.

Raidho the Traveler

Raidho has been everywhere, and has borrowed from everyone he has visited. He promises he’ll give it back the next time he sees them. Raidho is the rune of getting off your butt and doing it. Go. Stop procrastinating. Move. Even if you’re going the wrong way, just get in the cart and drive.

Before the Exchange

“We have no time!” Modi snarled. “We have waited too long for Thorleif to return already.” Einherjar and dwarves worked quickly and tirelessly to pack carts for the journey to the Exchange of Hammers while Modi growled at Perthro. “Sowilo says we need to.”#futharkvillage — Perseus Greenman (@futharkvillage) January 6, 2020 “How can we stop […]

In Search of Ansuz Runesinger

Thorleif hated everything about Svartalfheim. This place was always twilight dark, which made it only slightly more bearable to look upon the hideous dwarves who populated it. And now he was being sent into Nidhavelir, the worst place in all of Svartalfheim.#futharkvillage — Perseus Greenman (@futharkvillage) December 19, 2019 At least he had been given […]

Nordri talks to Mannaz

Today's story involves a bit of verbal sparring between King Mannaz and King Nordri. While Nordri is mentioned in the Eddas, we don't know much about him. Mannaz is based on the rune Mannaz, a rune of mankind, leadership, and cooperation. #futharkvillage @CeruliasCircle — Perseus Greenman (@futharkvillage) November 20, 2019 King Nordri sat himself down […]

Arrival in Nidhavelir

Laguz sailed the longship Tyr up the river toward the city he could see in the distance. The river had twisted and turned so much since they had last seen the sun that he no longer had any concept of North, South East or West. It was only upstream and down.#futharkvillage — Perseus Greenman (@futharkvillage) […]

Arrival in Svartalfheim

Today's story focuses on Kenaz. While two of the rune poems describe Kenaz as an ulcer, harmful to children, today's story focuses on her aspect as warming and protecting fire. The runes are interesting in that fire is protective, and ice (Hagalaz/hail) is destruction. pic.twitter.com/MQgRnaOkFZ — Perseus Greenman (@futharkvillage) November 12, 2019 It had taken […]
