Description of Elven Runes
Elven Runes for. The Elven Elemental runes are a relatively unknown set of runes focused entirely on the energies and powers of the world’s four basic elements: Air, Water, Fire, and Earth. Unlike many of the better known runes sets, these runes are not letter-based but symbol-based and somewhat more sophisticated in terms of how each rune interrelates to the others and to the four basic elements. Little is known of the origins of the Elven Elemental runes other than they appear to have been developed between commonly recognized historical periods (or Ages), and have survived predominantly through an oral tradition. Given their longevity and their origins, the lives of the elves are experienced in the world through the four basic elements (Air, Wind, Fire, Earth) and this collaborative life within the elements lies at the heart of the Elemental runes. As immortal beings, elves do not view life as having an ultimate conclusion. Instead, they view life as a series of paths and journeys which require intentional purpose and action to travel. Different paths lead to different outcomes, which lead to further paths and even more outcomes. Therefore, Elven runes do not attempt to divine situations, rather, they provide insight into the directions to consider as one travels. The Elven Elemental runes are broken into four types: the basic elements (4), the royal runes (12), the symbolic runes (24) and the life runes (4). The unusual symbols in the set seem to be unknown, yet are somehow familiar to most when they first encounter them. Over time, and with experienced use, the colors and shapes associated with each rune (and a particular element) provide a means for a visual interpretation of a cast in addition to the traditional interpretation method of considering the specific meaning and focus of a rune. For example, a cast that has a red appearance sets a tone for an entire cast. There are eight casts included with this Elven Elemental rune set - the most commonly used casts by those experienced in their use.
