Jarl Daniel,

 

How does one write "Great Seal of the High Realm" in Old Norse?

 

And how would one write the same in runes?

Jarl Daniel,

It is difficult to say. Old Norse was no standardized language, filled with strange spellings and dialectal varieties. In the house of Farewell, we use Faroese, Danish, the two Norwegian Standards and Swedish in the stead of Old Norse. Hurmu was an attempt to standardize it, but it, as all languages, evolved to the deviance of Old Norse.

 

HÖGA RIKETS STORA SIGILL (Sw.)

DET HØYE RIKES STORE SEGL (No. bm.)

DET HØJE RIGES STORE SEGL (Da.)

DET HØGE RIKET SITT STORE SEGL (No. nn.)

 

And Faroese, I don't know right up my sleeve.

Thank you.

 

I asked you this question because Stormark is in need of a new Great Seal.

Are we?

 

Yes, because the text on the current seal is outdated. It says "Great Seal of the Viking Empire of Stormark" while Stormark has changed its style to High Realm.

I saw, but you should try and not use capital letters in the converter program you use. The runes turn out weird then :P

Another form of Stormarkian dialect, isn't it? ;)

You are aware that these runes are Anglo-Saxon, aren't you?

 

The issues I had were caused somewhere in the long line of steps required to complete the image. I have made a couple in the sequence and now the text came out well.
