    Um, that's the debate, Hazel... does it exist? I don't know any Asatruar that use it. You'd think that since runes are a cornerstone of their religion, they'd have an inkling of it's existence, validity, etc.

      Yep your absolutely right Rick, there does not seem to be any historical evidence relating directly to it. When i have used it in readings before and my querent has picked out a blank rune their first reaction is often one of suprise and "oh i have picked one without a symbol on" or "i have picked a dud or faulty rune" and they somehow seem dissapointed or (and) puzzled that there is no symbol to represent that stage of the reading. So i now use the rune included in R i Pages book an introduction to english runes, the one i mentioned above that has no meaning or name and i use that to represent the mystery rune, that way at least my querent can see some kinda symbol to represent it.

        (It's old, I know)

        I thought the "Wyrd Rune" was the combination of all rune shapes, not the blank rune stone?
