Rune Information

What are runes?

Runes are a type of magical instruction infused with microscopic magic symbols written using mana to fulfill a desired outcome that relies on the mana to function properly. Runes can be modified and designed in a number of ways to cause any amount of outcomes, which purely rely on trial and error, throughout countless years. 


While common runes are publicly available to learn about in books, it is not an easy task to properly write a rune, with it taking years of practice to master. Untrained rune writing can result in major injuries, in some cases, the rune can backflow and explode due to unstable mana flow. That is why an item by the name of ‘Rune Pen’ exists; it helps the user better focus their mana in such a way to draw the rune without major backflow.


A rune is a form of universal magic that anyone can use regardless of their ability to control mana, with a fundamental base in the drawing of a symbol through the usage of mana and powering it using ambient mana.






Drawing is the first step in using a rune and perhaps the most complicated part of the process. This step requires the user to draw the symbol of the rune using their mana, or a mana pen, in a stable form in order to execute the rune by powering it in the second phase. While this may sound easy, it is not; drawing a rune is a delicate procedure that can often backfire if the mana used to draw is unstable, or if the process is interrupted.


Absorbing is the step that comes after drawing and it's a step that doesn’t really require the user to do anything. As runes are powered by ambient mana, this step is the process by which the rune absorbs the mana around it once activated in order to create the desired outcome. This can sometimes backfire or explode even if the mana is interrupted.


Outputting is the final step in this process and this is the part that ends with the runes effect coming into fruition and being projected onto the desired output, thus the reason for the name. Once this step has been reached stopping the process is very difficult so it doesn’t often cause issues, but it still can if the rune is damaged.


With these ideas in mind, it is easy to understand why runes are one of the major factors of magic in the world, and why creating runes is very difficult. 


However, it isn't impossible.

What exactly are runes and why do they exist?

That's a question that has always made many researchers curious, and even to this day, continues to be an unsure topic. Many researchers believe that runes are a type of ancient arcana magic that first became prominent shortly after the 7th generation of magical people were still roaming the world. This is believed to be the case due to the highly complicated and detailed magical symbols that have been found engraved into ancient rune remains.


Due to the varied capabilities of runes without the necessary need to be born with magic, many who cannot use magic use runes instead. All runes must have a source of mana, otherwise, they simply would not function, however, this source of mana does not need to come from the person writing the rune, to begin with. 


Runes can utilize mana from a variety of sources depending on the type of rune and the person engraving it. Examples would be Mana from the area, another being, or otherwise stored in a container of sorts. This fact alone makes runes a subject of study for desperate people that aren’t good with magic, but that doesn’t make it easy to master.

Rune Pens work in a way such that the rune would be drawn, and powered by ambient mana around them in order to function, making it so even races or people without a lot of mana can use runes.

To earn a better understanding of runes below is a format of how it is structured while posted:


Type of Rune: 

Body - Item - Areal


⟨ Body runes are meant to be inscribed on certain parts of the body, Item runes can only be inscribed on certain items, and Areal runes are scribed on certain areas to affect an area of range ⟩



 ⟨ Enchantments would be the ability of the rune once it's activated ⟩


Limitations & Side Effects:

 ⟨ Most runes have limitations to their enchantments, whether they be range, duration, etc, while others have side effects once activated, some runes may have both ⟩



 ⟨ A rune either requires a certain level of skill or certain necessities to use, anything that applies will be explained here ⟩
