Something just isn't right about this place
"Hello?" Joris called as he approached the dilapidated buildings. All of the buildings looked run down as if no one had maintained them for years, but he still had a feeling like someone would pop their head out of a window or door at any moment. He made his way from one building to another until he reached the shack on the edge of the lake. He fully expected the interior to match that of the other two buildings with everything covered in a thick layer of dust and cobwebs. When he peered inside, however, he found the interior to be oddly pristine as if the owner had only just stepped outside. "Hello?" He called out again. The hairs on the back of his neck stood on end, as he received no response yet again. Something wasn't right about this place, and he did not want to stick around to find out what it was. So, he bolted from the area and did his best to put the remote cabin from his mind. After half an hour, Joris slowed and tried to remember why he'd been hurrying in the first place. Unable to remember, he shrugged and continued looking for some shelter he could sleep in overnight. The cabin, forgotten once more, silently slipped into obscurity, waiting for someone to come and unearth its secrets.
Rune Casting is the method of using magical runes. During rune casting, the caster must maintain physical contact with the object or person the runes are drawn on. More commonly, casters draw runes using their blood as a way to maintain 'contact'.
Rune casters are highly skilled individuals who are the only people in all of Iosis able to use rune magic at will. Those who cannot perform this feat may buy the services of a rune caster at a high cost.
