    How do we score this, by which letter we got the most or?

    EDIT, nevermind, I noticed I didn't read the top part where you explain that.

    My top four should be

    Holda
    Freya and Frigg (tied)
    Odin

    Great post! I didn't know I was close to Frigg... Thought I would be closer to Freya...

    I had an almost foreseeable result . my top 3 were:

    Thor (8)
    Odin (7)
    Frigg (7)
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    I scored highest for Frigga and Thor, which really didn't suprise me. So why do I feel like Odin is calling me so much lately?:odinsleip
