I have decided that over the winter i would like to find an ancestor to call my own - for lack of better words. So i am calling upon the wolves to tell me about thier ancestors and what they stand for to help me make an informed choice.

Thank you for all the help that you can give me

greetings this topic may well lead on to discussions about ancestors that you may not want to see my suggestion is this pick fenris and everything will be sweet sorry slip of the tongue there na pick what you want look at norse mythology and pick an ancestor that suits your character if you fancy wearing black and running around bashing things in the face look to the followers of fenris if you want to be part of team old dirty fat one eyed lieing barsteward look to odin followers
the good thing is you can do what you please and you could even buck the trend and not follow a norse ancestor i know shock horror who would do sucha thing well thats another story

I know a fair few Ancestors my advice is simple, find one that is adverse to silly tattoos, outlandish body paint or wearing black on hot sunny days and your life will be muchly improved!
*nods sagely* m'yup, m'yup!

Not wanting to upset any frothing incantors or other worshippers of ancestors but the first question I'd ask is... why? If you've managed so far without worship of a specific ancestor, unless you are a frothing incantor, you maybe don't need to worry about it. Of course, I'm a heathen and I don't worship them. I know they're there, I've met Odin, nice guy, huge beard, wears blue, but my life isn't empty because I don't bow down and worship them, pay homage or nothin'. I've seen a lot of crazy things and ancestors are just wielders of power, like a mage, different flavour, different outcomes but mostly of an order greater than any normal human mage (such as myself). And you don't get a pile of people worshipping me, just 'cause I can bust someone up but good with a few magebolts?

Seriously, why do you feel you need an ancestor in your life?

Well said Xaan, don't think there is anything I can add to that.

You are in the wolf faction, why not worship a big powerful warlike wolf,who is a model of Norscan values, misunderstood by many.
Follow the grey wolf Fenris,wearing black is practical, it doesnt show beer or blood stains. What more do you need. :wink:

In my experience when the ancestors want you do something is best just to do it. Or they get a little forceful on the topic.

Other than that a little faith goes a long way

'A little Faith can go a long way'

Well yes, I used to know a rather short paladin called Faith and according to rumour she went absolutely -everywhere-. But I guess its' as the old saying goes 'faith has its' place and its' on it's knees!'

... Actually that's just brought that whole proverb in to a new and frightening light for me. Oh dear!

Well, there was this girl who reputedly could suck a marble through a clay pipe... whoops, did I just say that out loud... off topic again? Moi? Probably!

Aaaaanyway, I once saw General Fenric from a safe distance, avatar of Fenris apparently, and boy did he ever have a serious impulse control problem?!?!

i greeted general fenric when he arrived at our camp during the gathering 1109 and i have to say what a inspiring character and then after an honor fight during his visit a he healed us on mass he then took his champions and other hangers on to the devils teeth and cleansed that circle

i am a follower of fenris and proud of it

Win,

Of course we feel you should go with the flow. The Bees follow Odin (hint hint) although Elizabeth and I also follow Lunas, but we are both thinking of converting to the new religion of that Great Mage Captain Tight Pants with his ancestral assets!!!

The only ancestor I've met is Loki, although I was at the events that General Fenric showed up I never seemed to be in the camp at the same time as him.

Speaking of ancestors we're suppose to 'know', in the two years since I've started attending these Heartland faction gatherings I've never met or seen the ancestor that is ment to be head of our factions pantheon, Odin.

Not that I'm particularly worried, because I don't need or want ancestors. As a matter of fact worshipping ancestors is like fitting wheels to a tomato, time consuming and completely unnecessary.


. . . sword? I didn't know he had one . . .

Once upon a time the ancestors used to wander Narsca and talk to her people on a regular basis, this made Norsca special as it was rare for the ancestors of other factions to Walk amung them. Unfortunatly since the catalcysm it has become rare there to. The Wolves are still a faction very strong in their faith but the ancestors no longer come and tell you what to do, they expect you to be true to yourselves, live by the tennents set out by Odin and find you own answers.

You could think about Loki....he gets a bad rap most of the time, but at least he's interesting and cetainly not boring!! :D In fact, Loki's on the up & up.
