I'm planning on doing a short lecture on alternative ways to use the runes (alternative in the sense of not just using them as sigils), using the Eddic poems and stories as inspiration. I'm a bit too busy to put it together right now, but I hope to be able to do it within the next few weeks. Before I start writing up material, is this something people would be interested in?
I tentatively plan to structure it like so:
-General Introduction to Norse Mythology and Virtues; recommended reading.
-Some points about the nature of Norse magic, based on mythology.
-The Mythological Origin and Importance of Poetry.
-Working poetry and poetic devices into magic.
-Working with the Gods.
It will by no means be exhaustive on the subject, or anything close. Like Raitaro, I am not nearly an expert at this, but I have some stuff I wouldn't mind contributing to Veritas, if people are interested. As can be seen, the lecture would be less focused on the runes themselves, and more focused on magical methods with a Norse mindset.
