Hello the internets. I'm learning Nordic runecasting by trying to memorise each of the Elder Futhark runes and their associated stanza in a variant of the Old English Runepoem. After that I'll learn the stanzas for the Norwegian and Icelandic ones, although neither cover the full Elder Futhark.

Wealth provides comfort
but you should share who hopes to cast lots
for judgement before the gods.


(When I say "a variant" it's a translation that's been modified to strip the Christianity out of the original poem which would talk about "God" instead of "the gods". This seems fair given that a few of the Runes directly name multiple gods from Norse mythology)
