An ancient oracle, the Runes, older than the New Testament, have lain fallow for more than 300 years.
Akin in function to the Tarot and the Chinese Book of Changes, the Runes were last in current use in Iceland during the late Middle Ages.
The wisdom of the Rune Masters died with them. Nothing remained but the sagas, the far-fang fragments of the Runes themselves.
From the beginning, the Runes took on a ritual function, serving for the casting of lots, for divination and to evoke higher powers that could influence the likes and fortunes of the people.

There were Runes and Spells to influence the weather, the tides, crops, love, healing, cursing and removing curses, birth and death.
Runic Symbols were carved into pieces of hard wood, incised on metal or cut into leather that was then stained with pigments into which human blood was sometimes mixed to enhance the potency of the spell.
The most common Runes were smooth flat pebbles with symbols painted on one side.
There are total 24 Runes, plus one blank Rune and these are divided into three families of eight each.
