AoA

Backlog AoA Scroll

I completed my first (backlog) AoA scroll and turned it in at Ice Dragon this past weekend. I was incredibly nervous about it, but after speaking to our lovely backlog signet, I’m going to proceed with confidence with scrolls at this level. (And because they’re fun.) Sometime in the future, I want to learn some basic woodworking and/or carving so I can start making real runestones and more tactile Viking-inspired art. The photo below is angled a bit oddly, but I rather liked this one.

Old Norse/Icelandic:
Timothy konongr ok Gabrielle dróttningar buďu Thorstein Vigdisson, þessi iďjumaďr hverr berďist í þeira turnimenti kórónum, ok bàďu þeir honom merkisburďr i Birthday Battle ok Ball i Nithgaard i September V, AS L.

English:
King Timothy and Queen Gabrielle summoned Thorstein Vigdisson, this hardworking man who fought in their crown tournament, and bade they him the carrying of arms at Birthday Battle and Ball in Nithgaard, in September 5, AS 50.

Based on the U 346 Frösunda stone, which was located in Frösunda, Sweden, and dated to the first half of the 11th century.
