Over the years I've become very fond of using runescripts and galdr to perform magic. However, there are two runes that scare the bejeezus out of me: naudiz and thurisaz.
But of them can have two uses in a spell. Naudiz can represent a great need or relieve it. I used it in a poorly thought out script once and nearly drove myself crazy with want for something.
Thurisaz can be used for curse, representing challenges, or overcoming them. I try not to even use the rune because the last thing I want to do is curse me or someone else.
These two runes seem like they can have a great amount of potential and I was hoping someone had advice on using them in a script in a way that narrows down their definitions. As in, if I want naudiz to relieve a need, it does only that and not nearly driving me insane.
What I've done with other runes is to carry them around and see how they affect my day to understand them. However with these two, I didn't want to jeopardize myself with possible side effects.
Any ideas, suggestions, or even a post that tells me if I'm being a moron about it would be helpful.
