There's another couple of ways to use runes, but those are ones that you likely wouldn't spot, even if one was stood infront of ya.
One you'll probly've seen, even if you didn't recognize it, are the Dancers. Proper names Somato-something or other, but since no one can pronounce it, most just call em dancers. They hold the runes in their mind, like the Sigilists do, but cast it through movement, kinda like the Runefists. Still, it’s hard to tell whether a simple gesture or dance is actually a spell, since they have a great skill of keeping things hidden, deceptive like.
Anyway, I best be moving off- Oh, I did say a couple didn't I? Yes, there is one more way to use runes. It’s kinda boring, but if you wish I’ll include it for completeness sake. They're called Mirrors, or Mimics or many other names, but they don't actually use runes, in the normal sense. They just understand runes. Look like normal folk, like you or me, but if someone around them has unnatural talent with runes, they can leech off that. Whats more, and whats not usually known is that they can also improve another’s weaving, or break it just as easily.
Nope, there's no way to recognize a mimic unless you want to. Heck, I might be a mimic, or I might just be an old man whose heard a few too many stories. How would you know?
Anyway, I need to wander off. I thank ye kindly for your food and tales, and I humbly hope you appreciate the little I can tell ya. But i hear the call of the next town, and especially of its reputation for good cider...
