Drivenslush: grrrr, every time I go to the German Mythology it always flips over to the Norse equivalent, is it okay to use NORSE or will that be off them (dern Odin) just to clarify ( 5 years and 1248 days ago )
rusvelt2000: In fact, the fringe between the two cultures is so subtle. I hope both would be practicable, so we can have a vast choice. ( 5 years and 1248 days ago )
