Runic dice are absolute classics in our creations. They’ve been with us for a long time, and their popularity is unwavering. It’s about time to give them a new kind of flair, hence we decided to use one of the most astonishing color theme we have, known to you from our Dragons dice. The bottle-green background, resembling a dark jade gemstone, along with gold engravings, are truly a marvel to behold. Combining beauty and legibility, these dice are the source of both our pride and joy.
For centuries runes worked as letters and symbols, with meaning varying depending from circumstances. People used them to write down great deeds, stories of heroes and gods, of leaders and clans, all to be passed on for generations to come. But for us, people immersed in fantasy settings, the most important part is the magic in them. Our ancestors believed – even today many still do – that runes invoke a greater force, incomprehensible and thus hidden from our sight without proper means of manipulation and interpretation. That’s the stepping stone of divination and spellcraft: to wisely and carefully use proper tools to tame and direct that supernatural force. Runes were engraved into carefully crafted objects to bestow mystical powers upon them, thus making them the true artifacts. From stone, bone or wood for divination purposes, to metal weapons and armor for enchanting them with amazing might. Now you know why this set is so mesmerising: it’s pure magic carved into dice.
Carve a rune – gain its power
The more noble and flexible the vessel, the more powerful rune carvings are. From the wooden tokens, through sculpted bones, the most everlasting natural material for rune engravings are stones. Jade is a mineral used throughout centuries – even millennia – as having not only decorative, but also protective, healing and mystical purposes. It was believed to shield one from harm, to help find courage and inner harmony, heal wounds, fight curses and spells, even repel evil spirits. Thats is why we chose the Bottle-green color, which resembles jade gemstone.
Runic symbols engraved and painted with golden ink are with their own meaning: they’re supposed to strengthen the protective and healing properties of jade. Because of that, your character will not only be resistant to disease and enemy spells, but also able to bring forward his or her inner strength and courage to trip the balance of any encounter.
