(And pray that you never have such a thing, because that means all you've got left are black 'stones! You're hero's life, from there on in, goes straight down the toilet...) Also, you do not get to refill your bag if you run out of 'stones. Let's say you have a Passion of 12, but only 11 'stones in your bag to draw. You only get 11 'stones to draw. (Please note, when you draw a white 'stone, you CAN choose to decrease a current Passion rather than increase it. Having too high a Passion can be a very bad thing if you draw a lot of black 'stones...)Daniel

QuoteWhat do you learn from the leftmost rune, that representing the journey towards your destination? Sowelu is a strong symbol, for it represents the sun. Unlike equatorial cultures that may see the sun as a harsh and imperial force capable of causing droughts, in the cold north the sun is a purely feminine force that gives life and allows crops to grow. In dark times, this rune represents clarity of sight and the victory of good over evil. Sowelu is irreversible, as the cycles of the sun and seasons are perpetual.What do you learn from the center rune, that representing your present situation? Tyr was the Norse god of war. It was through his sacrifice that the great force of chaos, the wolf Fenrir was bound. Here however, you have drawn the rune reversed. This could mean that a sacrifice made will not lead to the desired result. It could also mean a loss, or a victory overturned. This rune warns against entering into conflicts or negotiations, especially ones requiring that an offering or concession be made - the wolf might take your hand and yet remain unbound. Note also that Tyr was the god of law, so there is a suggestion of a wrongdoer who will avoid justice.What do you learn from the rightmost rune, that representing your final destination? Raido means to ride. In this rune, the image is not so much the riding of a horse as in riding in a cart or as cargo. As such Raido may suggest a journey, but is much more indicative of communication. Alternate interpretations based on the use of Raido as a cognate in other words give it the meaning of council, judgment, and moral correctness. Therefore, this rune is the rune of wise advice and good leadership.

Now, in order to play it, you have to go out to an obscure bookstore (which most people don't have in their home town) and make another ten to fifteen dollar purchase, okay?"
