Magic of Runes
Words have great power in Altea, rune priests are able to invoke the shade of gods’ power that was used to create the world. Dwarfs known for cultivating memory of historical events and expert craftsmanship are especially skilled rune priests. Although rune priests are usually associated with a particular deity, the arcane knowledge doesn’t require any divine connection, merely the knowledge of the ancient times.
