If you've levelled Inscription or equipped a glyph, you're already delving into Norse influence. The power to make words stay was considered a potent magic in some early Germanic cultures, and one saga depicts Odin undergoing a near-death experience atop the World Tree with the sole purpose in mind of learning the runes.

Actually, in almost every ancient pantheon the god of writing is also the god of magicians, or the keeper of potent magical forces... i can think of Hermes, Thoth, and Enki off the top of my head. Odin is an interesting case though, because unlike the others, Odin is also the most powerful/nominal leader of his gods.
