      I do not know if you have already started your rune set, but I will
      present this information anyway.

      First of all, what futhark are you using? If you are using the one
      popularized by Ralph Blum, be aware that, while his system does
      work, it is not believed to be the runes as used in period.
      Blum "constructed" the system he presents.

      I would also question whether you want to use an animal skull. I
      mgiht be afraid of residual impressions interfering with you

      As far as using silver if you are allergic to it, my suggestion
      would be: DON'T!! Soothsaying can be draining enough, without the
      added stress of an anaphylatic (allergic) reaction.

      If you want more info on period uses of runes, there are other Guild
      members whose e-mail addresses I can provide you privately.
