Heathens respond to the Portland attack

May 26, 2017, according to multiple reports Jeremy Christian boarded the MAX light-rail train in Portland Oregon and promptly begins harassing two sixteen-year-old girls. Witnesses say he yelled racial slurs and anti-Muslim threats at length before three gentlemen stepped forward to try and put a stop to the abuse of the minors. Mr. Christian then made national news when he pulled out a knife and attacked all three of them, slitting their throats.

Department of Defense to declare Asatru Folk Assembly a hate group.

According to sources inside the NCIS [Naval Criminal Investigative Service, a subbranch of the Department of Defense (DoD)] is already in the process of adding the Asatru Folk Assembly to the DoD list of white supremacist organizations. Documentation of the group’s efforts to recruit military members and to form groups on military bases has also resulted in the group being flagged as a possible insider threat to the armed forces.

Reconstructing Runic Magic (Part 2)

After our previous article on reconstructing historically accurate Pre-Christian runic magic, I got a lot of requests for a follow-up. Our ‘practical application’ section on that article was pretty short and simple, and a lot of our readers really wanted to see that section expanded with more detail. So today I’m going to apply the theories explored in part 1 to an example piece, showing three different approaches to creating the same object!

Nordiska Asa-samfundet appoints controversial new official ‘educator’.

In a radical shift in rhetoric, Nordiska Asa-samfundet (NAS) has appointed Sibbe Bladh-Hvass, aka Carl Z. Grönbohm, as their new “Riksblotsansvarig” (translated: National Blót Manager).

I stand for a heteronormative, folk line.” It is unclear exactly what this new direction will mean for current members of the NAS.

Real Rune Magic: What it is and how to do it

It’s no secret that the subjects of magic and mysticism are a bit of a hot-button topic among Heathens.

Frostrune: The Heathen video game you’ve always wanted

Have you ever wanted an engaging video game that feels like it was MADE for Heathens? Not just another “Viking” game where you run around hitting things with an axe, I’m talking about a game that’s more than skin-deep. I feel confident in saying that while the game might not have been made by Heathens, “The Frostrune” is most certainly the kind of game that so many of us Heathens have been waiting for!

A More Personal Heathenry

I wanted to write about a something a little different today. Over at Ranting Recon, I usually stick to exploring Lore, Tradition, and ancient history, but that’s not the ENTIRETY of Heathenry. So, since I have occasionally been accused of being little more than a dusty book-hoarder, I wanted to take a step back and talk a bit about how Heathenry impacts my life on an entirely personal level.
