* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

To which end, as a latecomer fan of this series, I have a question for you all: How do you think it's treated the volva character, the sometime Queen of Kattegat who is a Norse Witch? And which episode or episodes best show her doing her magical thing?


Hi Oldenwilde,

I don't recall her doing anything "too witchy"; she saw visions often; but no episode stands out to me. :)

That's a shame -- writers missed an opportunity!

I did rather like their evocative depiction in a very recent episode of Odin coming to Ragnar's sons to inform them of his death, as a one-eyed stranger striding through the land with flocks of ravens circling overhead. Seemed to be a little more in the spirit of the sagas than the usual Hollywood cartoonish treatment.

Before this thread settles back at last on its original subject, I think its extended slew of sarcastic would-be debunking of Pagan history deserves a serious rebuttal instead of a** jokes.

 
A Reminder:
Hanging this here, but it's not just to Oldenwilde HP, but to the participants in the thread in general,

This thread is in the Asatru and Heathenry SIG; while discussion of survivals of Germanic/Norse preChristian customs is on topic, broadening it to discussing survivals of preChristian customs in Europe and the Near and Middle East generally is not. Those who wish to continue discussing the latter are welcome to start a thread for it on the main board (History and Religion would be a suitable forum if you wish to do so), but in this thread/this SIG, please stick to Asatru & Heathenry-related topics.

Thanks,
Sunflower
