Sent out a request and strange dreams answered
« on: December 05, 2016, 12:53:13 am »
I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, mods if you think there is a better place for this post please go ahead and move it.

So about a week ago I performed a rite to find a patron deity, I turned up empty handed and  a few days later I started having these strange dreams.

The first one had a candle, it was shrouded is mist and light tan, it looked visibly worn and old. It was burning brightly and had runes carved into it. I don't remember which runes were carved into the wax but there were a lot.

The second dream had the candle in it but also all of a sudden there was a mans face behind the candle. I could only see from his left side to his nose, and his shoulder. He wore a speckled pelt as a cloak over his shoulders and in front of his nose and mouth was a handle of some sort or weapon, the grip was wrapped in leather and also had runes on it, but which ones I don't remember.

I'm not sure what this might be and if it is a deity answering me I'm not sure who it is I have asked quite a few times for a name but I'm only showed his face.

Any ideas?

Welcome to the mysteries of deities, where answers are often rather few in number and opaque at best!

For a very long time, the clearest information I had about M'Lady (and 15 years later, I *still* don't have a name anyone else might use for her, just a usename she likes from me) was a specific floral smell. It is near impossible to research based on a smell. Despite that, I have built up a longstanding interaction with her, and treat it as a "Not everything can be researched, even if you're a librarian." reminder in my life.

The fact you're seeing runes, in specific, though, does help you narrow things down a bit. (Since that's a cultural thing that only a limited number of cultures use in that form.) You might be able to narrow further if you can look at different rune alphabets and remember if specific forms were used.

You can also try other things like meditation or divination to help narrow things down a bit more by asking specific questions. (You may or may not get specific information back, or it may be tiny pieces of info over a period of months or years. It's relatively uncommon for people to get a "Boom, I am X deity" sort of experience that's really clear and obvious.)
