Nidstangs! (theoretical)

Post # 1
Hail!
We all know about the good old cursing pole from the days of old. And I'm sure atleast one of you good heathen folk has put one up at some point in your practice.
Well, my inner chaos mage has an idea of sorts. An "urban" nidstang so to speak.
Where I live, it's not practical setting up a meter long pole. It would be desecrated and torn down within an hours time. So what if one were to use something small? Like a chopstick length piece of wood? Something that could be hidden in the brush where no nosy folk would find it. Other than that, the same rules would apply as to a full sized pole.
Any comments on this theoretical idea of mine? Would it be just as effective?

I've made quite a few nidstangs in my time. What you're proposing is actually something that is commonly done. Many times I make nidstangs (and even some stangs in general) that are about wand length. They are incredibly convenient and work just as well, I've found.

Wow this is so interesting. I did not know about Nidstangs. I found an interesting piece of driftwood on the beach and kept it. It was shaped about only 3 to 4 feet high with what may have been a washed out horse head. I thought perhaps even an unusual beaked bird at first. I poked it into the ground with the head up and used it in a protection spell pointing it towards the road after feeling like that was what it was for. I am now wondering if it was someone elses tool that I reused. It worked in a noticeably strong way.

From that experience I would suggest using a rude carving of a horses head on even a short stick. I think its important to have that representation on there.
