With Purpose Forward

Progress: We’re hard at work on several new projects, including one or two rooted in Norse mythology — although not in the way most people would expect. Fennoscandia has more than one ancient culture, and successful oral tradition has kept Æsir, Álfar, Vanir, and Jǫtnar in excellent health. Also, Arnhǫfdi has been shining brighter than ever lately, all the while playing an intricate game — revealed to no one. Read More →
