Aegir is a sea giant, and rules the sea creatures.

Njord is associated with seafaring, wealth, fertility, fishing and the ocean. He is also Vanir.

The way I interpret things is that Aegir is strictly the sea, where as Njord is in charge of sea-related activities.

Ah, I always got a bit muddled with them. I never knew who I should be approaching for my sea related business, Aegir, Njord or Ran

It really really depends on what sea related things. Ran, to me, is the unforgiving sea. She is the storm on the waves and Lady of the Drowned.
It is kinda confusing having three deities involved in a similar concept.

Well I kinda feel like I should give them a nod seeing as the sea has always been important to me and I’ve worked/played on and in it for most of my life. Also the fact that I don’t really have any experience with the others apart from Thor so I feel a little like I’m heathening wrong.

The 2 Spoopy shirt XD

It’s time to break out the prohibitive links again, because this is LookHuman we’re talking about, and they’re a pile of fucking garbage.

Mostly, cause they steal people’s art and ideas. [x] [x] Keep that in mind when you decide to wade in.

Filed under thanks for that id really hate to buy stolen art

Anonymous asked: What are all the tribes in Ireland that are known so far?

irelandseyeonmyth:

There are too many to list.
This is a link to irelands history in maps. I think it gives a good idea of the way ireland worked and who the dominant tribes were over the centuries. It treats mythology like history but the maps are very cool.
http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~irlkik/ihm/ire000.htm

Ireland being tribal is very important but even more interesting to me is that there are multiple ethnicities that considered themselves different races. And they did have unique identities.

For example the Dal nAraidi, Ui Echach and Loigis tribes are all Cruithin (they might be related to picts) but they are from different parts of Ireland. So while theres constant tribal warfare it wasn’t just a brawl. People were united in complex ways.

The Muscraige, Corcu Duibhne,and Dal Riata are all Erainn but are from all over Ireland again. And whats really interesting about them is their genealogies start out with Aengus Bolg. The Erainn might be the origin of the term Fir Bolg/men of Bolg.

Both those groups would be considered “alien tribes” by the dominant dynasties. They were really kept under the boot unless they had a heritage site in their territory like things related to the king cult like inaugural sites or assembly sites.

They probably weren’t as celticised or romanised as the rest and mightve had the original bronze age trads. The tools of war from the iron age show a continuity with the earlier trads as well as the celtic n roman stuff.
