The fourteenth rune of the Elder Futhark. When people speak of the invented “blank rune” from Blum, I always laugh: why is such a thing needed in a cast when we have Perthro? Perthro represents the unknown and unknowable, that piece that’s left up to fate or chance when we roll a die (or cast the runes).

It is unpredictable factors, but it is also our intuition and our willingness to roll the dice and play.
