Subj: OT: Any people knowledgeable about rune-associations here?
Posted: Mon Mar 07, 2011 at 09:45:06 pm EST (Viewed 260 times)

I'm currently designing a fire-giant character, so therefore I'm checking out what runes are traditionally associated with various incarnations of fire.

Seems like there is actually quite a few runes in the elder futhark that's associated with fire! If I'm getting this right then the following are apparently fire-types:

1.Fehu (cattle-riches), 2.Uruz(beginning),3.sowilho(sun), 4.dagaz(daybreak), 5.nauthiz(fate), 6.kenaz(fire), 7.thurisaz(giant)

It would appear as if Kenaz is actually the only rune that is directly linked to good ol' Surtur, yes? But which of these other runes would be fitting to associate with a giant, and which ones wouldn't work because of a too close connection to an Aesir?

Thankful for any insight into this stuff, friends! \=\)
