Rune Casting Anywhere, Anytime
Rune casting is an ancient tradition.
It has been practiced in Europe for millennia as a powerful aid to focused introspection.

A rune casting guide is included as well as a rune browser to allow for self-directed study of the set.
Authentic Elder Futhark
Runes utilizes all 24 runes of the authentic Elder Futhark alphabet.
Runes does not use or contain the so-called blank rune.
Multiple Cast Types
Runes supports the 1-rune (Odin), 3-rune (Norn), 5-rune (Tyr) and 7-rune (Freyja) cast rituals.
Each stone is pulled from the rune well according to the user's personal rhythm.
Once all of the runes are present in their appropriate positions, the well fades away to allow for interpretation.
Cast or recast any spread at any time.
Simply touch one of the cast buttons to initiate a new cast.

A Final Note On The Use Of Runes
The proper use of Runes is an excellent way to promote introspection, unleash insight and achieve inspiration.
Runes is not, however, a definitive life guide.
It should not be relied on to purchase investments, change jobs, choose partners or resolve any other major decisions.
In fact, the most important thing to remember about rune casting is that it should be fun!
