    A Pleasure to Find This Forum

    Hail!

    If you couldn't guess by my username, I'm from and work around the region of England that was once the mighty Kingdom of Mercia. A region of the world I love dearly, I came to find out about the Kingdom when researching it's history, and subsequently finding out about characters like King Penda, the last Pagan King in England.

    I wanted to understand the mindset of my ancestors (the Angles), so started to devour all historical documents and books on the history of the Mercians, then the Anglo-Saxons, and finally the wider Norse/Germanic history and culture. Finally I came across modern Heathenry, and their attempts to reconstruct the old faith of our ancestors.

    I was brought up a Catholic (Irish mother), but quickly became disolusioned with that very universal, and (looking at the current Pope) "Progressive" religion. Reading the Poetic Edda was a breath of fresh air to me, having always been in love with mythologies such as the Gaelic and Greek Pantheons.

    Fast forward to today I'm an independant Heathen reconstructionist. Independant because I have yet to find a moot/kindred in my local area (Nottingham). Just bought a very hefty tomb; Sagas of the Icelanders. Looking forward to reading this, and anything else I see suggested here. Deeply interested in the folklore of the Germanic and Norse world.

    Happy to meet you guys.

    Welcome to Skadi.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    I used to live just 25 miles down the road from you, in Leicester

    I much preferred Nottingham though because it was less 'diversified' and I watched Nottingham Forest play quite a few times in their late 1970's & early 80's heyday.

    My football team, I'm too young to have seen them in their hayday.

    Leicester is not quite Luton, but it's going in that direction. Unfortunately so is Nottingham now, I'm looking to buy a house outside of the city, it's just so danm expensive.
