Bah you think that these are glyphs you blind fool these are runes, they are far more powerful than those little letters on paper. - Rune Carver.Unlike Glyphs that are used in the art of spell casting, Runes are another form of magic that can use magic differently rather than by speaking it. The runes themselves hold power in them that could be channeled into them as if they were meant to have it stored inside of them. In doing so anyone can use the magic they hold for their purposes and are not bound to the Price of Magic that come with it.
Bound to MagicRunes are as old as the world some could say as they have been records of them that pre-date the most historical records as they can be found in many ruins. But the understanding of why they hold magic is still up for debate as the origins of how they were created remain a mystery. All that is known is that the symbols that they are made with are often somehow connected to them as magic is drawn. It’s possible that their divine origins may be responsible for allowing this to happen or maybe that runes are somehow connected to the Arcane Source known as the Ether that draws magic to them. All that is certain they are highly valued due to storing magic in them without harming those wielding it.
Embodiement of PowerWith the unique circumstances surrounding runes and magical properties that they hold they have become highly valued. Mostly in imbuing items with the magic inside of them. This craft so brought about the creation of Enchanter that would master the craft of Item Enchantment. With the final result being the creation of Magic Items that granted power to anyone had control of these items. But the drawback was that the magic was only as powerful as the quality of the runes created for them. It also took time to create such items as the art of rune craving is something that should not be taken lightly, especially when it comes to magic. Making all the more reason to never treat runes with disrespect or those who do will suffer their wrath for their ignorance.
Rune CreationTo understand how a rune is created one must know the requirements that are need to make them. First the proper tools must be used to create it often being a chisel and a variety of tools to create it. This is a process that takes time to achieve as the right patterns must be etched in. Each shape has its own distinct pattern that is added together to create the rune. Each one must be carefully created to ensure it works properly and does not cause an accident. Finally, magic must be involved often placed in item or channeled around one to prepare to seal it in. Once that is done the magic will be placed into the rune with it being drawn to due to the design and once it is fully absorbed it will be ready for use. Though this process should not be disrupted or it may cause a magical accident.
Runic is distributed to several parts of the world manly used by Humans and Dwarves.
