Morning Folks,
I have recently come across this system and am looking into it further, Has anyone else come across the uthark system, and is it worth pursuing?
Thanks

Do you mean , "Futhark" , as in the so said ,
Odinic 24 rune system ?

The one typically associated with the Norse - German
heathen community , yet also used for general divination ,
and magical practices ?

......

( As far as I am aware , there is no "Uthark" system...
if you found one , please link...I shall peruse , and inform
you of the correctness , as far as I know...which is far... )

Hi BW, I do mean Uthark. Whilst browsing amazon (uk) I came across abook entitles Uthark, nightside of the runes, by Thomas Karlsson. Karlsson is a member of the order of dragon rouge which is a LHP group. The theory was first proposed in 1930's where you move feoh to the end of the rune row, and then start the theosophy od the row again from ursaz.
There is also a small wiki entry that ends up stating that there is very little credance given to the idea. If I can find the book at a reasonable price, I'd like a look, there may be something of use.
If you have come across this I would like an opinion as to whether it is worth pursuing, or just another load of twaddle by someone trying to twist a system to their own ends.
Cheers

Ahh, Karlsson's work is a little familiar to my ears. He did a lot of work with the band Therion and I believe that he included quite a few of his ideas and theories in the songs they made together. (Uthark Runa is one of those that jump to mind immediately.) I think that Karlsson is quite knowledgeable about myths and magical workings, although I am not quite sure if his runic system has merit. I am personally endlessly partial to the old futhark system, so I've never sought to explore his thing. Karlsson usually does know his stuff, though, so you could do worse than check it out and see if there's some merit in it.
