Runecraft

From Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Runecraft, or Rune Magic, is a form of magic wherein the practitioner carves runes of power upon objects. The art is most associated with the Duardin of the Dispossessed and Fyreslayers.[1b][1c][2a][5a] But other forces of Order have been known to make use of the craft.[3a][4a]

Carving Runes

When a rune is placed upon an object, whether through etching, carving, engraving, or inscribing, it confers power onto it. They can make the item harder or sharper, convince it to put itself back together or bless the item with magic qualities.[1a][1b][1c][4a][5b]
