So I'm playing . . .

As you can see below, I just decided to play with the Rune Casting thing so many people on LJ have been using. After reading a bunch of them, I was wondering if this thing had any "bad Runes" in it.

It doesn't. It's fluffy, and I hate fluffy. Especially with Runes. Take the description for Hagalaz (hail), for instance:

Hagall - Slow, steady pace, no disruptions, asking for a hand from fate within a situation you do not control.

Or this one (need):

Neid - Need, desire, fulfilling those needs, love and sex magick, motivation created by distress.

And Isa (ice):

Isa - Cessation of energy, freezing an issue where it stands, cooling relationships, separation, division.

These should read more like this:

Hagall - Hail, destructive force, starvation, chaos, anger.
Neid - Poverty, nakedness, death from starvation and frost.
Isa - Freezing, immobility, ice.

None of this happy-spin garbage.

My guess is that he's using the Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem, which is happier, but I can't abide these three Runes (always in series) being any good.

What I really don't get is the obsession with sex magic here. . . I don't know *any* Runes for that!
