    Writing in runes.

    Since we have a few weeks until the draft and things have pretty much slowed down, I thought everyone could have a little fun writing like the real vikings did. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/vikings/runes.html

    Try writing your screen name in runes. I thought it was cool...at the very least it gives some interesting history on our team's namesake.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    SKOL!!!

    Re: Writing in runes.

    In addition to the alphabet on the left, you can write entire paragraphs in the quick translation section.

    Getting a personalized jersey or some kind of Vikings paraphernalia written in runes would be kick-a**.

    Perhaps even a runic section on PP.O?

    Just a thought.

    In the names you've described you can substitute the letter k since where c is pronounced with the "kuh" sound. Similarly there are letters specifically for the "ch" sound and so forth. The runic alphabet on the left shows the letters and their corresponding sounds.
