Another description


Poetry is all things to all people and this book is no exception. I am concerned that it could have the impact of a drone strike. Let your imagination run wild. Have fun. The title tells it all, “Random Runes, New Poems and Old Elegies.” I built a formidable file of poems I put together during the decade (2000-2010). It has been five years since Author House published my first poetry book titled, “Songs from a Cave and Other Selected Poems (1995-1999)”. So, I bought a touch screen computer and an excellent printer (hp Officejet pro 8600 jet) and went to work organizing, authorizing and deputizing. What a job. I decided to randomize the individual works using Moses and Oakford’s “TABLES OF RANDOM PERMUTATIONS” left in my library from my doctoral dissertation days at UC Berkeley (14 December 1974). There must be an easier way today. Consequently personal, political and philosophical works are scattered around by the process. There were new poems along the way such as “Super Urban Man”, “On Salvaging a Sunken Stanchion” and, not to forgotten, “Beat Down at Dog Beach.” Old Elegies were written for old friends who have passed away, Arnold, Bob, Harry and five or six others. They rime using the villanelle style and went over very well at the time. “Give Us your Sons” is topical and international. It’s about the molestation of boys serving on the altar of churches. The last line is: “We went back at seven for Mysteries of the Cross.” Members of Poetry for Pleasure” at the Roger’s Senior Center in Huntington Beach, CA like, as of today, “Dross Bucket” and “Baby Slobodan’s First Photograph.” If you are a Bicyclist you’ll appreciate, “Riding Around the Bear” where I take you over Onyx Summit by Big Bear Lake and nudists will appreciate, “Danseuse Narurel” in four parts. The last sentence is: “All of you, from head to toe will be slipping, sliding, gliding then move and pose au naturel to four-four time and dance the tango.” Above all, have a good time experiencing “Random Runes” and, if you like, recommend it to your friends and family. Of course, I’d appreciate it if you did. Gerald Olson

The Rune Poems

Three ancient poems were created as mnemonic aids for remembering the rune symbols, their names, meanings and properties. Because the runes changed slightly in each culture the three poems differ in some aspects.

From Runic and Heroic Poems by Bruce Dickins

Wealth is a source of discord among kinsmen;
the wolf lives in the forest.

Dross comes from bad iron;
the reindeer often races over the frozen snow.

Giant causes anguish to women;
misfortune makes few men cheerful.

Estuary is the way of most journeys;
but a scabbard is of swords.

Riding is said to be the worst thing for horses;
Reginn forged the finest sword.

Ulcer is fatal to children;
death makes a corpse pale.

Hail is the coldest of grain;
Christ created the world of old.

Constraint gives scant choice;
a naked man is chilled by the frost.

Ice we call the broad bridge;
the blind man must be led.

Plenty is a boon to men;
I say that Frodi was generous.

Sun is the light of the world;
I bow to the divine decree.

Tyr is a one-handed god;
often has the smith to blow.

Birch has the greenest leaves of any shrub;
Loki was fortunate in his deceit.

Man is an augmentation of the dust;
great is the claw of the hawk.

A waterfall is a River which falls from a mountain-side;
but ornaments are of gold.

Yew is the greenest of trees in winter;
it is wont to crackle when it burns.

(in Modern English)

Sól - Sun

God with one hand
and leavings of the wolf
and prince of temples.

Bjarken - Birch
Leafy twig
and little tree
and fresh young shrub.

Delight of man
and augmentation of the earth
and adorner of ships.

(in Modern English)
From. Runic and Heroic Poems, by Bruce Dickins.

Wealth is a comfort to all men;
yet must every man bestow it freely,
if he wish to gain honour in the sight of the Lord.

The aurochs is proud and has great horns;
it is a very savage beast and fights with its horns;
a great ranger of the moors, it is a creature of mettle.

The thorn is exceedingly sharp,
an evil thing for any knight to touch,
uncommonly severe on all who sit among them.

The mouth is the source of all language,
a pillar of wisdom and a comfort to wise men,
a blessing and a joy to every knight.

Riding seems easy to every warrior while he is indoors
and very courageous to him who traverses the high-roads
on the back of a stout horse.

The torch is known to every living man by its pale, bright flame;
it always burns where princes sit within.

Generosity brings credit and honour, which support one's dignity;
it furnishes help and subsistence
to all broken men who are devoid of aught else.

Bliss he enjoys who knows not suffering, sorrow nor anxiety,
and has prosperity and happiness and a good enough house.

Hail is the whitest of grain;
it is whirled from the vault of heaven
and is tossed about by gusts of wind
and then it melts into water.

Trouble is oppressive to the heart;
yet often it proves a source of help and salvation
to the children of men, to everyone who heeds it betimes.

Ice is very cold and immeasurably slippery;
it glistens as clear as glass and most like to gems;
it is a floor wrought by the frost, fair to look upon.

Summer is a joy to men, when God, the holy King of Heaven,
suffers the earth to bring forth shining fruits
for rich and poor alike.

The yew is a tree with rough bark,
hard and fast in the earth, supported by its roots,
a guardian of flame and a joy upon an estate.

Peorth is a source of recreation and amusement to the great,
where warriors sit blithely together in the banqueting-hall.

The Eolh-sedge is mostly to be found in a marsh;
it grows in the water and makes a ghastly wound,
covering with blood every warrior who touches it.

The sun is ever a joy in the hopes of seafarers
when they journey away over the fishes' bath,
until the courser of the deep bears them to land.

Tiw is a guiding star; well does it keep faith with princes;
it is ever on its course over the mists of night and never fails.

The poplar bears no fruit; yet without seed it brings forth suckers,
for it is generated from its leaves.
Splendid are its branches and gloriously adorned
its lofty crown which reaches to the skies.

The horse is a joy to princes in the presence of warriors.
A steed in the pride of its hoofs,
when rich men on horseback bandy words about it;
and it is ever a source of comfort to the restless.

The joyous man is dear to his kinsmen;
yet every man is doomed to fail his fellow,
since the Lord by his decree will commit the vile carrion to the earth.

The ocean seems interminable to men,
if they venture on the rolling bark
and the waves of the sea terrify them
and the courser of the deep heed not its bridle.

Ing was first seen by men among the East-Danes,
till, followed by his chariot,
he departed eastwards over the waves.
So the Heardingas named the hero.

An estate is very dear to every man,
if he can enjoy there in his house
whatever is right and proper in constant prosperity.

Day, the glorious light of the Creator, is sent by the Lord;
it is beloved of men, a source of hope and happiness to rich and poor,
and of service to all.

The oak fattens the flesh of pigs for the children of men.
Often it traverses the gannet's bath,
and the ocean proves whether the oak keeps faith
in honourable fashion.

The ash is exceedingly high and precious to men.
With its sturdy trunk it offers a stubborn resistance,
though attacked by many a man.

Yr is a source of joy and honour to every prince and knight;
it looks well on a horse and is a reliable equipment for a journey.

Iar is a river fish and yet it always feeds on land;
it has a fair abode encompassed by water, where it lives in happiness.

The grave is horrible to every knight,
when the corpse quickly begins to cool
and is laid in the bosom of the dark earth.
Prosperity declines, happiness passes away
and covenants are broken.

There is yet another rune poem, the Abcedarium Nordmanicum. discovered in a manuscript written in the 9th century, written in high and low German. This is sometimes referred to as the " Old Swiss Rune Poem ". It relates to the Younger Futhark.

Fee first,
Aurochs after,
Thurs the third stave,
The Åse is above him,
Wheel is written last,
Then cleaves cancre ;
Hail has need ;
Ice. year. and sun .
Tiu. birch and man in the middle;
Water the bright,
Yew holds all.

Three versions of the Abcedarium Nordmanicum are available on the Woden's Harrow website, along with a Real Audio sound file.



OE Authors

Periods: Early Medieval

Old English Major Authors

Almost all Old English poetry is anonymous. The major exceptions in poetry are Bede, Caedmon, Cynewulf, and King Alfred.(Here is Harris' list of all named authors in the Old English period .)

Oral-Formulaic Theory. The anonymous poetry is thought to originate in an oral tradition reaching back into the mists of time. Old English poems are extremely conservative in their form (see prosody ). And a guiding critical assumption is that the form is motivated by the oral origins of the poetry. Singers of Tales or scops recited a huge corpus of poetry as they wandered from place to place (see the poems "Widsith" and "Deor"). Old English poems also share formulas— a formula is something like "once upon a time" or "happily ever after." One such formula is weox under wolcnum (grew under the skies). Here is Benjamin Bagby reciting the opening lines of Beowulf and singing Grendel's attack. The full film is available in streaming from our library.

Whatever the oral origins of Old English poetry might be, poems are also written things. And by the time poems were written down, the habits of textual culture were firmly ingrained in the practices of working OE poets. We must be careful not to assume that orality is the same as the appearance of orality. (For example, Robert Frost's Death of a Hired Man is a decidedly textual thing that only appears oral.)

Bede (673–735). Saint Bede was a monk of the twin monasteries of Wearmouth and Jarrow in north-eastern England. He was famous in his lifetime as one of the most brilliant writers of Europe. Bede was made a doctor of the Chruch in the nineteenth century. Bede translated the Bible into English and wrote poems in Old English. We have a short poem called "Bede's Death Song" and a longer poem (which may not be by Bede) called "Doomsday."

Caedmon (s.vii). We hear of Caedmon through Bede. In Bede's Historia Ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum. Book 4, chapter 24, we learn that Caedmon was a lay brother of the monastery of Whitby, ruled by the Abbess Hild. She instructed him in doctrine, and he turned the doctrine into poetry. The only surviving, attested poem is Caedmon's Hymn of nine lines.

Cynewulf (s.ix). Cynewulf is only a name. Four poems in Old English contain a signature coded into the text in runes. They are The Fates of the Apostles. Elene. Christ II. and Juliana.

King Alfred (848–899). Alfred was King of the West Saxons, and conquerer of the Vikings. He brought scholars and writers to his court in Winchester, which became the center of a renaissance in English letters. Alfred is thought to have translated the first fifty Psalms as well as three prose works (one of which, Boethius' The Consolation of Philosophy. also contains poems). He or his circle translated Bede's Historia. including Caedmon's Hymn.



Elite Skills - Runes of Magic Wiki

Elite Skills

Elite Skills are a set of special skills characters have access to depending on their class combination.

Each class has a set of Class-Specific Skills and a set of General Skills that they may learn as they level and then train up using TP. Elite Skills are a set of Class-Specific Skills, learned every 5 levels starting at 15, that are unique to particular class combinations. A character with both the Warrior and Rogue classes, for instance, has different Elite Skills than a character with the Mage and Scout classes, and a Mage /Scout has a different set of Elite Skills than a Mage /Priest .
both classes must be at the level for the elite skill. If you have a mage/priest with the mage at level 25 and priest at level 15 you will only be able to learn the level 15 elites. You will be able to learn the level 20 and 25 elites when you get the priest up to level 20 and 25.

Regardless of the name, Elite Skills are not necessarily powerful, must-have skills. They are moderately difficult to learn, however, and help to further differentiate dual-class character experiences. All Elite Skills are Class-Specific, but you can learn both sets as long as you supply the materials for certificates to an Elite Skills Master while having the necessary class set as your primary.

How to Learn Elite Skills Edit

In the Coast of Opportunity and Xaviera areas, you will come across quests that reward an Old Bag - these quests are infinitely repeatable and usually require you to use special abilities to achieve an objective.

Upon opening the bag, if both of your class levels are sufficient to learn a new elite skill, you will receive a Lv. X Elite Skill Certificate. (Lv. 15, Lv. 20, etc.)

These certificates can be turned in at Lowen Dunlit in Coast of Opportunity in Heffner Camp to learn the skill for your primary/secondary class combination.

Reader Ebook Taking Up The Runes

Taking Up The Runes

_ Reading _ : "Although many of us first encountered runes in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, this sacred alphabet is by no means a fabrication for books or movies. Similar to Hebrew letters in the sense that each symbol contains a meaning that transcends its original function as a letter, the runes are practical, flexible, and effective symbols with a variety of uses. From the introduction: Effective use of the runes requires both the old wisdom and the new. The student must not only consciously study the meanings ascribed to the runes by earlier scholars, but must internalize them. Today, the best-known application of rune lore is divination: chips or stones marked with the runes are drawn, cast, or laid out in patterns like tarot cards. In Taking Up the Runes, Paxson delves into the ancient historical meaning of each rune and explains their contemporary uses and meanings. We discover that the real power of runes comes from inside ourselves when we find the wisdom and power within each symbol and internalize them. Taking Up the Runes is the ultimate workbook for using the runes on a psychic, spiritual, and magical level. Learn how to make your own rune set and how to use the runes in guided meditations and song."
