Runes, alphabetical divination symbols of the ancient Nordic tribes are a magical tool and oracle for foretelling the future. Runes were used by the ancient Nordic people as a magical language. Their uses ranged from writing messages and making charms or talismans to predicting the future and magical work.
In Anglo-Saxon English and Old Norse, the word Rune meant secret law, mystery and magical signs. Rune Masters, who could be male or female, were considered to be the most important people in the community next to the village chief. Identified by their deep blue cloaks and leather charm pouches which they wore at their belts, the Rune Masters would normally carry a bronze-tipped wooden staff carved with runic inscriptions to show their power and status.
