Rune Car

Go Fast...In Style!

A Statement Piece

  Having a vehicle that is runed is considered a bold statement. Beings being driven in one, or driving it themselves are seen as incredibly wealthy and well off. Celebrities or people of high-class often have at least one in their garage or equivalent storage space.  

Double-edged Sword

While it is a statement piece and a conversation starter, there are many that see runed vehicles to be over the top, tacky and a waste of Haraamn . It is hard to argue however that it isn't the most stylish way to get around the more urban centers of Isidoro.

Technology Behind the Scenes

  Behind the scenes (or perhaps a more apt statement would be under the hood) there are a few runes that are commonly known to be used in all brands of runed vehicles. Some however are trade secret and are hidden by the Runesmiths that embue these parts with magic.  

Floating


Essential to all runed vehicles is the "Floating" or "Float" rune. This rune, decoratively emblazoned where the typical wheels would be--along with hidden among the inner workings for extra safety-- allow the magic within the technology to float. It is typically paired with an air rune for added measure.

Move


Also essential for all runed vehicles is the "Movement" or "Move" rune. This rune is hidden from sight and typically has a Lightning rune nearby as well.   This rune helps channel the other required rune and is what allows the car to move without wheels.

Decorative Runes

  While some runes are totalitarian in their design and serve a purpose, there are some that are simply meant to look nice, or to give an air of superiority.   Some of the common runes are as follows:  

Exclusive

A rune depicting the idea of exclusivity. It is often seen in limited edition models.

Glamorous

For high end cars, if they don't have this rune, it is likely snuck into the logo of the manufacturer. Gives off an air of glamour, and often has a minor charm that makes people stare.

Luxury

Many non-floating cars have Luxury Runes, though typically not in the same fashion as these. It is often used in logos or as a hood decal as a statement piece.

I like how you are using runes for most things. It really feels like a cohesive world this way, and I always recognize an article that is from you by your art. Keep it up. ^^
