Magic and Runestone
A World Saturated with Color
Whether it be through stone or symbol, wizardry or shaping, or through the land itself. Runes are the essence and language of magic, and every spell is a story.
From the Stars
Okay but like, How?
Nebulas are the purest forms of magical energy in existence. You can see them as clear as stars during the night, all in different shapes, sizes, forms, and colors. While these factors don't really affect the magic itself, they do influence how different cultures use it. Currently, there are 5 that surround the world and a common belief among Elves in is that they're the souls of the , silently watching over the world they created.
How Magic is Used
The Color Pie
Nature Runes are stiff, thick, and drawn with purpose. They emulate the fortified trees, unbreakable rocks, and the stalwart beasts of the wild.
Fire runes are sharp and chaotic, as if they're drawn with slashes and cuts. They take the shapes of mountains, blades, and flames. It's not about looking pretty, it's about sending a message.
Water Runes ebb and flow like wind and waves, a master of Water is a master of calligraphy and balance.
Life and Death are a bit more complicated. With a great deal of effort, Death can still be learned and potentially mastered. Life on the other hand is extremely hard to learn and almost impossible to master.
Death Runes can resemble any Element, usually Water, drawn in pitch-black ink. Users of Death magic should be feared.
Life Runes are Constellations, potentially infinitely complex and intertwined.
I long to drone on for hours about my world to a willing victim. That being said you should totally ask about my world. >:)
