A Hittite rite?

For those who couldn't tell from the last post, I'm working on a Hittite ritual in ADF format. It's a good exercise and a lot of fun, actually, and well worth the effort.

I mean, the tradition is obviously so rich (even if a bit threadbare in places). It's a shame we don't use it as much as we could. (Of course, we often pretend we're using Vedic sources when we're actually using Hindu ones, but that's another topic entirely.)

So far, I have a world tree, a book on Hittite prayers on the way, a couple of god names, a sigil (!!!) for the Storm God of Mursili III (which you'll see as soon as I manage to scan it in), a myth about Fire and a bit of interesting imagery about the sea, a funeral ritual to work from, a ritual against curses, the names of festivals and lists of supplies needed for each, a Hittite glossary, a book on Hittite myth, and a book about a Hittite funeral ritual on the way.

In all, I think this is doable.

This is the sort of thing that truly excites me in life. There is, simply put, nothing that compares to it.
