[Resources] Viking Runestones

The Vikings placed Runestones all around the world, from England to all the way to Greece, with messages that praised their gods, celebrated their heroes and honored their dead.

They are a pretty cool image to include in any type of game, from fantasy to modern to even future (alien runestones, anyone). Their purpose should be mysterious, their magic unfathomable.

  1. Wikipedia's entry on rune stones is great with a number of nice photo entries, although the translations tend to be very mundane and along the lines of "Here lies A, this stone was raised in his honor by his son B. A died in the west." Ah, but WHAT did he die from, and how FAR to the west? :)
