Ancient runes class will have two main parts: spell casting and translation. This class will not require the use of wands or magical ingredients. Instead you will be using rune stones to cast spells. For an introduction to the art of runic spell casting, I recommend reading the book An Introduction to Runic Magic by Ulrick von Hagen.
Rune stones must be kept in an enchanted bag when not in use. Bags of rune stones may be purchased for the class, but students may also borrow one of the school's rune bags by speaking to the professor at the beginning of the school year. Anyone caught using their rune stones in an inappropriate manner will be disciplined severely.
You can learn more about the Ancient Runes professor, Khayman Zirak, by reading his bio.
(I have encountered problems with Firefox displaying the runic font correctly. I'll keep trying to see if I can fix this problem, but in the mean time, if you have Internet Explorer, you may want to view this section of my site using that instead.)
