In this modern day so many people are hunting for a spirituality they connect with. Many are rushing to eastern mysticism as the solution to the emptiness they feel. Just look at how popular Yoga, Buddhism, and eastern Martial arts have become. Meanwhile much of the spiritual practices native to the west have become neglected and nearly forgotten.  


 Some people have noticed this disparity and gravitated toward the Western Esoteric Systems of Spirituality. This broadly covers the Systems of Hermetic Arts (Qabalah, Astrology, Alchemy, Tarot, Ceremonial Magick etc…) including, Wicca, Neo Paganism and the like. however even these systems are mostly native to The Mediterranean areas and Northern Africa. Many people Claim Wicca to be Celtic but if you look at the source material for where Gardener based his tradition it Stems from Italy. Even the Roots of Witchcraft can be traced only to the Mediterranean where Witch lore was common in the myths of the Greeks and Romans.  


Where are the northern Mysteries? Where are our mysteries. If you are reading this now you probably speak the English language. A Germanic language, a language of northern Europe. You May have ancestry Stemming from northern Europe. Even is this is not the case according to the Worf Sapir theory you are thinking in a Northern European way. because the language you speak has a large part to do with how you think. If the above statements are true of you then the Runes are your heritage.  


The Runes can illuminate any path you practice. They can help with Magick, with self contemplation, and with the studies of the underlying workings of the universe. They are not the easiest of paths. You have to sacrifice in order to learn them you must wrench them up from within. The seekers work is never finished but always rewarded. I hope this site helps you walk that path and brings you a deeper connection With Odhinn.    


May the Alfather and your divine Ancestors bless your work.

Magically it is used to make wise decisions and insure success.

It symbolizes knowledge, wisdom, and the power of communication.

Ansuz “awn-sooze” is the fourth rune in the first aett. Its phonetic sound is “AA” as in thaw. It represents Odin, the leader of the Norse gods.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
