It's really interesting, but Sean I don't think you'll like it, it can be quite irregular.

Old Norse does look very pretty, and I think it would sound pretty too.
Norvegese antico davvero sembra molto bello, e penso che farebbe bello anche.

It does, and I think it would too. I might start it in a few days, it's hard to resist. x)

Beginner's Course

Huge-ass dictionary
Also has a big online grammar along with some other resources

Sagas in Old Norse with translations to some other languages

German <-> Old Norse dictionary in PDF

These may be removed, but I'll add them anyways. (:

Grammar in PDF

Great intro course

Old Norse Syntax

Standard dictionary (to my knowledge anyways) PDF
It says Icelandic, but it's really Old Icelandic, pretty much the same things as Old Norse, although most people call are referring to Old Icelandic when they say Old Norse. :P

Alternatively, I can RAR and upload all the PDF's I have, which consists of 3 dictionaries, the stuff listed above, a primer and reader, and a 2 page cheat sheet of conjugations and declensions of nouns, verbs, and adjectives, which totals to about 150Mb.

Old Norse is pretty sweet, and there are enough free resources on the internet that it is plausible to become fairly fluent in it. There is a very good dictionary available for download, too. Just google it and it comes up.
Plenty of historical documents on it as well to become learned in the culture, etc. :D :D
