If you ever want to know if something is magical or mystical, every gamer knows you only have to look for the runes. Any runes at all. If it has runes, it must be magical.
Of course, that's never the whole story. But it is one we're more than happy to actually agree with. No, really. We're totally fine with it. However... there is more you should know. And in learning it, we're going to travel forward and back from ancient burials, to modern technology. You're probably even packing a couple runes right now that you don't even know about.
