Runic Alphabet

Runic

Runic Numerals:

Nothing – laguz, water
One – perth, luck
Two – nauthiz, need
Three – algiz, support
Four – dagaz, day
Five – othila, land
Six – raitho, digging
Seven – elwhaz, stairway
Eight – kunaz, eating
Nine – Mannaz, sky
Ten – Fehu, wealth
Eleven – perth perth
Twelve – perth nauthiz, etc.

This has lead to the dwarven euphemism which substitutes the word “holr” meaning a hole, but also “borholr” meaning a well. Hence the dwarven saying “to draw from the well” meaning to get nothing, or “to draw the bucket.”

Back to Orthr.
