Rune Words

All magical incantations are made up from one or more Rune words, or syllables which are written in the Old Sosarian Runic alphabet. Rune words were a separate language from the spoken Old Sosarian language which resembled Old English.

Rune words form part of the secret language of power and each Rune word has its own distinct meaning. Sosarian Magic makes use of a combination of Rune words which are representative of the desired spell effect. Refer to Magic and Spellcasting to see how these Rune words are used in combination for the various magic spells.
