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.
